  • India are unlikely to tinker with their playing eleven

Asked if England's success against Kuldeep had dealt him a psychological blow, Hales responded: "I think so".

Over to the one-day global format, with the first of three matches at Trent Bridge on Thursday. From Sri Lanka, to Australia, to New Zealand, and to South Africa, none of the opponents could easily contend with Chahal-Kuldeep in such quick time.

England will feel they missed their opportunity with the bat after Roy and Jos Buttler got off to a blistering start by adding 94 inside eight overs.

Buttler and Roy scored 73/0 in six overs with both in-form batters smacking 10 fours and four sixes in the process. This was the second highest partnership in the English inning.

Then Pandya was promoted up the order to produce a quickfire 33 not out that got India home in front of a crowd that was mostly fans supporting the away team.

So far, only Sachin Tendulkar (664) and Rahul Dravid (509) have played more than 500 matches for India.

Kohli was left in disbelief when he drove a delivery straight back to Jordan, who took a catch at waist height, but Pandya picked up where the captain had left off. Dhoni became the first glovesman to take five catches in a T20I, while also becoming the first man behind the stumps to pocket 50 catches in this format. Though the strategy looked ordinary when England openers blasted bowlers all around the park.

Wimbledon 2018 | Three to See on Day 9
Federer didn't seemed bothered by being away from Centre Court when he cruised through the first set in just 26 minutes. The eight-time champion and 20-time grand slam victor last played a Wimbledon match outside Centre Court in 2015.

The Indian team management will do well to use Kuldeep as an attacking bowler, never mind if he goes for runs, and gives him complete freedom to express himself the way he wants to.

Victory on Friday would have allowed India to experiment in the third game, with the likes of Manish Pandey, Siddarth Kaul, Krunal Pandya and Deepak Chahar waiting in the wings. MS Dhoni pulled off a classic run out on the last ball of the innings and prevented another run.

Indian cricket fans arrived at County Ground in Bristol to cheer their side in the final T-20 match against England.

In-form Indian batsman KL Rahul has heaved a sigh of relief after finally breaking his chain of half-centuries with a sublime hundred against England in the opening T20 global of the three-match series. No.3 KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma then batted aggressively and kept the required rate in check.

The target was chased in just 18.4 overs as Pandya and Rohit finished the chase well, with the latter getting to his 3rd century in T20Is in the 19th over itself.

For India, Umesh Yadav took two wickets while Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Chahal, Hardik took one wicket each. India now holds third rank in T20 rankings followed by England at 4th position.

As he and India contemplate doubling up to seal the three-match series in Cardiff on Friday night, Rahul admits he was running out of theories about why he was habitually falling short of three figures in both worldwide and domestic cricket.
