"This Team Knows Only Two Things", Hardik Pandya On India's Winning Run

India vs England T20 Kuldeep Chahal under pressure after hosts fight back

England assistant coach Paul Farbrace said Test captain Joe Root will get better at his job by learning from his one-day counterpart Eoin Morgan.Root has been in charge of England's Test team for a year, since the 2017 series against South Africa, but the white-ball sides are captained by Morgan.Morgan has led the limited-overs team since 2015 and recently took them to a 5-0 one-day global series whitewash over Australia.

A lofted drive from Pandya, who made an unbeaten 33 from 14 balls, secured an impressive victory from India in front of a packed crowd.

England put up the target of 199 runs for India.

There is little time for either side to reflect on the series though as attentions now turns to the three-match one-day worldwide series that begins at Trent Bridge on Thursday.

Veteran M.S. Dhoni was also at his best behind the stumps, taking five catches and effecting one brilliant run out in the last ball of England's innings to get Jordan's wicket. "I just had to make sure I kept it simple".

Inserted in earlier in the day, England and Buttler started their assault as early as the third ball. To add to India's woes, Bhuvneshwar Kumar had a stiff back.


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.

When Kohli departed, India needed 48 runs off 31 deliveries to win the match.

Later, Stokes holed out to Kohli at mid off and once again in the same over Bairstow, who was looking good after smacking two fours and sixes, nicked a half volley to the keeper. It was skipper Virat Kohli who steadied India's ship and supported an unstoppable Rohit Sharma from the other end. He needs 13 runs to complete 1,500 T20I runs. f he reaches there he will be the 3rd Indian (after Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, and Suresh Raina) and 18th overall to the landmark.

"I am always learning the game and making sure I am always learning from my mistakes in every game I play in", he told reporters at Bristol. But the expected players failed to keep rocking in the ground.

Farbrace, England's assistant coach, also believes the hard-nosed manner in which Root was axed by limited-overs skipper Eoin Morgan will help the Yorkshireman develop a more ruthless streak when it comes to his captaincy of the Test team. I think it was a brutal day for the bowlers. The character they showed is something we are really proud of. Led by Pandya's four-fer, the bowlers paved way for India to claw back into the game after a blistering start from the English openers. "I haven't seen anyone hit the ball as hard as Rohit", Pandya told reporters at the post-match press conference.
