'I kind of like Hitman a lot' - Rohit Sharma

  • India vs England

Rohit, however, was already well on his way - and joining forces with Kohli was of course no detriment in a stand of 89 which put India within near touching distance.

Rohit, in the next over, completed his hundred by dabbing the ball towards backward point while Pandya hit Jordan for a six to guide India over the line.

There were also four fours from 31 deliveries before he was the second out, caught-behind trying to manufacture a cut off debutant Deepak Chahar.

"They kept up with the rate, and then it was a position in the 16th or 17th over they could take the game away from us which is disappointing".

Pandya said every game teaches him a new cricketing lesson. Their confidence was about to be tested.

The pace of the three right-arm quicks posed Jos Buttler and Jason Roy no challenge.

England captain Eoin Morgan said his side was 20-30 runs short and blamed the death-overs' batting collapse for the score, which wasn't enough despite being steep.

The opening partnership ended in the eighth over, after England had racked up their second-highest powerplay total of 73 - with Roy dropped on the long-on boundary on 38 off Pandya by Yuzvendra Chahal. They were looking at seven overs of quick bowling with no swing available and small boundaries to defend with 132 already on the board.

It was Pandya who saw to that, with a little help from MS Dhoni.

England, however, were to fall short of what their openers had indicated might be possible. He rolled his fingers on the ball to good effect, too. Alex Hales looked to late-cut him and got the top edge. That England fell 25 short was down entirely to these wickets.

England will feel they missed their opportunity with the bat after Roy and Jos Buttler got off to a blistering start by adding 94 inside eight overs. Rohit made an unbeaten 100 off just 56 balls, comprising 11 fours and 5 sixes. 225 or 235 would have been more of a hard chase (on that ground). Indian captain Virat Kohli replaced Rahul.

The live match India vs England will be broadcasted on Sony Ten 3 network. Four wickets for Pandya 4/38 was career-best figures for the Indian all-rounder in T20Is. Hardik Pandya also played an end-of-innings cameo by hitting 33 off just 14 balls. Rohit duly reached his hundred, and Pandya provided the exclamation mark with a six off the fourth ball of the 19th over.
