Although England managed a score of 198 at the expense of 9 wickets in 20 overs, the first innings was all about Hardik Pandya and former Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

Here is how the Indian media and ex-cricketers lavished praise for Rohit Sharma.

Apart from the England-India series ending on July 17, Zimbabwe will host Pakistan for five matches from July 13 to 22, the West Indies will play three at home versus Bangladesh from July 22 to 28, Sri Lanka will host South Africa for five matches from July 29 to August 12 and the Netherlands play two at home against Nepal. Pandya also played an unbeaten 14-ball 33-run cameo. The ODIs will be followed by 5 Test matches.

Wood has a happy knack of bagging the world's best players and will be aiming high when he returns to the England side at Trent Bridge for the first of three Royal London one-day internationals. In reply, India made 201/3 in 18.4 overs.

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

But on a pitch where anything that was too short or full could be flayed to the boundary, it rarely felt as though it was an even contest between bat and ball. Dhoni took a simple catch.

Chasing the target of 199 runs, India did not have the start they had hoped for as Shikhar Dhawan and Lokesh Rahul got dismissed early on.

Only moments of brilliance from England kept India in check. Rahul fell as Jordan took a brilliant catch in the deep. He made his India debut against England in 3rd T20I at Bristol on Sunday and finished with figures of 1/43 at an economy of 10.75. "We had to bowl wicket taking deliveries because 20 or 30 runs can be massive".

Croatia will square off with England in the World Cup semi-finals on Wednesday night. It is only the second time that Croatia have reached the World Cup semi-finals.

Rohit was adjudged man of the match as well as player of the series.

England also started badly and lost Jason Roy (15), the in-form Jos Buttler (14) and Joe Root (nine) as they struggled to 44 for three. Roy, on the other hand, reached his third T20I half-century off only 23 balls, inclusive of four fours and five sixes.

However, India slowly brought themselves back into the match.

Dhoni got to the 50-mark when he snaffled the unsafe Jason Roy caught behind off debutant Deepak Chahar's bowling.

Hardik got Stokes' wicket. Capitalising on starts like is something we have to learn from. But we played better than we did at Old Trafford and the plans we had we committed to more.

India skipper Virat Kohli: "The comeback from the bowlers was outstanding". The character they showed is something we are really proud of.

'I'm sick of saying it but, as a fast bowler, you're never going to be a hundred per cent fit. We backed up something and the guys produced the goods for us.

"We have a fantastic supporting staff and leaders who give us vast confidence to go and express ourselves".

India batsman Rohit Sharma: "I like to be calm, not to panic, because I know once you're there you can make up time".
