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

The Mumbai batsman had missed a chance to score a hundred when India took on Ireland in June this year after he was dismissed for 97 in the first of the two-match T20 series.

Earlier, India won the toss and chose to bowl first.

Jordan gave England a ray of hope when things looked dim for the hosts by picking up Kohli's wicket with a sharp catch off his own bowling. England have relied nearly exclusively on their batsmen to deliver the wins - their run rate of 6.26 is well clear of the next-best, 5.77 - while India have been more balanced, relying on their bowling as well.

India's initiation of the innings towards the big total was not sound. Overall, they hit a four or a six every 8.5 balls, compared to India's 9.6. England's big hitters at the top of the order Jos Buttler and Jason Roy were both out cheaply trying to get the early run rate up to Umesh Kumar.

At Manchester, in the first T20, except the one over - 11th of the innings - in which Buttler took 18 runs off him, Pandya bowled superbly to return figures of 4-0-33-1. IND vs ENG 3rd T20I Highlights.

India's bowlers came back at them though with Pandya dismissing Morgan (6) and Alex Hales (30) to start the fightback.

The likes of Jason Roy, Alex Hales and Jonny Bairstow have been garnering all the plaudits recently but stats suggests that nearly the entire batting line-up is chipping in with crucial performances whenever the team requires them to. "That's what we tried to replicate becuse on this ground, taking wickets is a priority", he said.

For India, Siddarth Kaul came back into the mix in place of injured Bhuvneshwar Kumar, while Deepak Chahar was handed his worldwide debut at the expense of Kuldeep Yadav who was dropped.

Well, the County Ground, Bristol has become harsh to its' native performers today.

To make matters worse, Buttler was dropped by Yuzvendra Chahal (0/30) just after Powerplay although it was a hard chance.

Siddharth Kaul NA Playing his first game in English conditions, the right arm pacer picked up 2 wickets and conceded 35 runs.

Chahar then got his first global scalp with a slower delivery that the unsafe Roy flicked to Dhoni behind the stumps.

Hardik Pandya removed Morgan and soon he got rid of Hales. Pandya mixed up his pace and length to finish with 4-38, having Stokes caught at mid-off for 14 and enticing Bairstow, on 25, to edge behind. The rest of the batsmen could not take England past the 200-mark but still posted a more than par total.
