Hales leads England to dramatic win over India

India vs England Jos Buttler Vows To Come Back Hard At Virat Kohli

For England, Chris Jordan and Adil Rashid bowled two good overs, conceding just three and four runs in the 15th and 16th overs, but with three fours off the 17th over, Hardik Pandya and Rohit released the pressure. You can also follow our live blog for ball-by-ball updates and analysis on cricketnext.com. India is playing only one spinner - Yuzvendra Chahal - in the third T20 worldwide against England.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni today completed a coveted double in T20 internationals, becoming the first cricketer to take five catches in a match and also reach 50 scalps in the shortest format. Despite that, India were on course with 70 on board for 2 wickets at the end of powerplay. South Africa's Faf du Plessis and Morne van Wyk scored hundreds in the 2015 home T20I series against Windies. (Thanks for helping my 19th over prediction come true!) On that note, the legendary cricketer created a poll on Twitter asking people for their opinion on his prediction about India's win before the 19th over. India would be looking to continue its winning momentum in the ODI series, when they lock horns against England at the Trent Bridge in Nottingham on July 12.

Only moments of brilliance from England kept India in check. It was expected the same in the second match.

The English players who were tormented by chinaman Kuldeep Yadav in the tournament opener managed to tackle him well. "I tried to spend some time in the middle, took my time and then went on to play those shots". They did their homework on Kuldeep and they reaped the rewards.

Captain Kohli said: "The comeback from the bowlers was outstanding - I thought they would end up getting 225 or 230 which would have been tough".

India are already without the services of pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah for the series and therefore, the job of rattling the oppositions batting-order remains with the wrist-spinners with fast bowlers Umesh Yadav and Bhuvneshwar Kumar not having made a very strong impression just yet.

England lost four wickets for 46 runs before Ben Stokes (14) and Jonny Bairstow (25 off 14 balls) had a 37-run partnership. Despite Bristol being a small crowd he should have automatically played given his exceptional performance in the opening match. Rohit Sharma played a stunning knock and remained unbeaten on a century. "That's what the team wants him to do". At the same time, he said that there could be changes for the series' finale on Sunday with all-rounder Ben Stokes returning from injury.

"He (Ben Stokes) comes into the squad for the next game and he is a fantastic player and it will be a hard decision to make". Alex always makes it hard, particularly in T20 cricket. The way he bowled gave him confidence.
