Clinical India clinch series 3-2

Dawid Malan and Jos Buttler's quickfire half-centuries went in vain as Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Shardul Thakur ensured that England fell 36 runs short in their pursuit of 224 for 2 in the series decider, a total setup courtesy fifties by Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli, backed by cameos from Suryakumar Yadav and Hardik Pandya.

The hosts sealed the five-match series in Ahmedabad 3-2 on Saturday.

What was India's latest experiment?

KL Rahul, after his run of poor scores, was dropped in place of an extra pacer - T Natarajan. After losing another toss and being asked to bat, Virat Kohli partnered Rohit Sharma at the top. India's two most experienced batters paired up for the first time at the top and made a seamless start to the innings, with Rohit taking the charge of the attack.

After two scratchy knocks so far in the series, he was at his fluent best, pulling and driving with equal ease. India raced away to 60 for no loss in the powerplay, of which Kohli had scored only a 15-ball 17.

 

Neither the pace of Mark Wood and Jofra Archer, nor the slower deliveries of Chris Jordan and Ben Stokes had any impact on Rohit's strokeplay.

He brought up his half-century off only 30 balls before getting dismissed in the 9th over, inside edging Stokes's cutter on to the stumps, for a 34-ball 64.

How did Kohli pace innings?

For most parts of India's innings, Kohli was playing the secondary role, allowing the likes of Rohit and Suryakumar, and even Pandya who finished unbeaten on a 17-ball 39, to hog the majority of the strike while they were able to score at a high rate. Of his first 31 deliveries, he had scored only 41, largely playing the role of turning the strike over. However, in the last six overs, he played 21 balls and scored 39 to help India to 224 for 2 - the fourth highest score in T20Is. Barring Jordan and Adil Rashid, the other bowlers didn't have a response to India's constant attack. Wood and Jordan ended up conceding more than 50 runs from their spells - 53 and 57 respectively - without picking a wicket.

India 224/2 in 20 overs (Virat Kohli 80, Rohit Sharma 64; Ben Stokes 1-26) beat England 188/8 in 20 overs (Dawid Malan 68, Jos Buttler 52; Shardul Thakur 3-45, Bhuvneshwar Kumar 2-15) by 36 runs.
