India, England match to be a cracker in the decider

India, England match to be a cracker in the decider

India's Rohit Sharma plays a shot as England's Jos Buttler keeps wicket during the third global Twenty20 cricket match between England and India at The Brightside Ground, Bristol on July 8, 2018.

England put on 94 for the first wicket between top scorer Jason Roy (67) and Jos Buttler (34) but after the latter was bowled by Siddarth Kaul the run-rate slowed and they eventually limped to 198 for 9.

Root has only made 72 runs in five innings across the two limited-overs formats since being shunted down to No7 in England's world-record score at Trent Bridge three weeks ago.

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. With a win in the first T20I, India were the favorites for the second T20I.

Hardik Pandya was India's most successful bowler with 4-38 off four overs.

They won all the eight completed 3-match bilateral T20I series' they have played so far.

Hardik Pandya, who came in for Kohli, immediately found the boundaries and India needed just 29 from the last three overs to win the match.

Earlier Jordan had taken a stunning running and diving catch to dismiss KL Rahul in the deep to add to a stunning effort from Jake Ball at backward square leg that removed Shikhar Darwan. Ball was welcomed back with back to back boundaries, before Pandya ruined David Willey's figures by hitting him for a six and two more boundaries in a quick cameo.

Maisie went on to explain how she has never found Game of Thrones misogynistic, despite many criticising it for just that. Another came up with theory that "she is going to survive the night king and become the queen".

"The unit as a whole did really well", England captain Eoin Morgan told Sky Sports. England looked set for score of over 240 before Pandya applied the brakes.

In the bowling department, unlike first match, Bowlers failed to impress.

The Indian bowlers did not disappoint.

It started with Eoin Morgan's slog and Hales's caught behind in the same over, and trickled on to his final over.

"We are just enjoying the game rather than thinking about what has got to happen".

"We were pushed back initially in the first six".

Kuldeep, who had bamboozled England batsmen in the series-opener and returned a five-wicket haul, remained wicket-less in second match. "This series for us has produced three different performances". "I think we competed quite well but England were the better side, that's why they came through today (Friday)", Kohli said after the defeat in Cardiff. "Jason Roy and Jos Buttler proved what a dominant force they are up top and created a great platform for us to capitalize on and we didn't do it justice. when a guy like Rohit goes out and peels off a hundred it's very hard to defend on a ground like this".
