England vs India - Highlights & Stats

England vs India - Highlights & Stats

Central to India's win was a man who might yet have to play a big part in the rest of the summer: allrounder Hardik Pandya stepped up with India missing two of their first-choice quicks to injury and dropping Kuldeep Yadav, who had taken five wickets two matches ago, because of the small straight boundaries.

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.

Fifth-placed Pakistan will have to win the series against Zimbabwe by a margin of 4-1 in order to ensure they do not slip behind sixth-placed Australia, while 10th-ranked Zimbabwe will have to pull off a 4-1 win over Pakistan in order to leapfrog Afghanistan and move up one spot in the rankings table.

England, batting first, could manage only 87 runs from the final 10 overs to post 198-8 in Bristol, despite Jason Roy's 67 from 31 balls. That wicket and the consequent quiet, with Pandya promoted ahead of MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina, left India 44 to get in four overs.

The second highest run-getter in the series behind Rohit Sharma.

England put up the target of 199 runs for India.

"Having the composure to play quite a mature innings, as he did... then towards the end, he's not known as a big hitter but anybody who watched the game at Trent Bridge will realise he hits the ball quite a long way - even yorkers". He finished with 54 catches as England were restricted to 198/9 by a resurgent India. Dhoni completed the catch this time around. Lokesh Rahul replaced Dhawan, runs kept flowing from the other end.

The breakthrough came just as India were starting to wonder where to bowl to the opening duo.

India's captain has a poor record against on these shores, averaging just 32 in ODIs and 13 in Tests against England compared to his career marks of 58 and 53 in each format. But the expected players failed to keep rocking in the ground. Pandya also played an unbeaten 14-ball 33-run cameo as skipper Virat Kohli (43; 29b; 2x4, 2x6) missed out on a half-century.

'I think the comeback from the bowlers was outstanding, we thought they would get 225-230. We have a fantastic staff and leaders who are giving us huge confidence to go and express ourselves. The character we showed is something we're very proud of.

"I want to show people how good I can be and get this guy out".

India batsman Rohit Sharma: "I like to be calm, not to panic, because I know once you're there you can make up time". Virat Kohli (the captain) asked me and I told him I was okay - if you come and take wickets on this type of wicket and ground it will stop the runs.
