T20-International series: India wins against England by 7 wickets

Kuldeep Yadav celebrates after taking the wicket of England's Jos Buttler

Rohit Sharma's elegant unbeaten century made it a walk in the park for India as they cruised to a seven-wicket victory against England to clinch the three-match T20 worldwide series 2-1 here on Sunday.

Here, England were made to pay dearly for not capitalising on the blistering start given to them by Jason Roy and Jos Buttler. With only 23 coming off final three overs, England had to settle for a sub-par 198. Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav, the Indian wrist-spinners, bowled well, but the England batsmen saw them off, waited for the seamers, and polished off the target.

India rarely looked troubled in their run-chase, despite losing Shikhar Dhawan early to a superb, low catch from Ball at short fine leg.

But Rohit continued to flay the ball all around the ground with a mixture of raw power and sweet timing, finishing on 100 not out before leaving the field to a standing ovation.

Master blaster Sachin Tendulkar on Sunday congratulated opener Rohit Sharma for his well-paced century that became a reason for India's 2-1 series victory over England.

Dhoni, who took became the first player to take five catches in a T20 global, removed his glove before the final ball of the innings, making it easier for him to run out Jordan as he tried to pinch a bye.

Deepak Chahar's first over in global T20 Cricket, and the first of the innings, cost 13 runs with Buttler accounting for 12 of them and within four overs England were 43-0.

Hamilton hopes to pull away in Austria
While both Red Bulls and Ferraris went to their boxes to have their tires changed, Mercedes surprisingly let Hamilton driving on. Mercedes' chief strategist will keep his job after a serious blunder during the Austrian grand prix .

Root has been struggling for form in the T20 game making nought and nine in his previous two innings but captain Eoin Morgan said he will back for the one-day game at Trent Bridge.

The 24-year-old had a nightmare start to his afternoon when he conceded 22 from his first over before bouncing back with a match-winning performance.

At the halfway stage, England were 111/2 but Pandya then dented England's surge as Morgan top-edged a back of a length delivery which Dhoni smothered, clattering the stumps in his follow through, and Hales was caught behind.

"We enjoyed ourselves as batsmen".

"When I went for 22 in an over I thought the T20 is a amusing format and the only thing to do was to come back and bowl my best balls". We applied pressure and pulled the game back.

Rohit was awarded the Man of the Match and Man of the Series. At one point we thought they would get 225-230. Guys came up with the good.

"The character showed was something we are really proud of and as captain I was very happy to see that".
