It always looked a total that was below par on a small ground and a good pitch and so it proved as India strolled home. In reply, India made 201/3 in 18.4 overs.

England and India, now ranked first and second respectively, play the first match of their upcoming series in Nottingham on Thursday, in what will kick off a month-long extravaganza of One-Day Internationals featuring 10 sides, spread across four continents.

Virat Kohli and Co will now take on England in the 5-match ODI series. Spinner Kuldeep Yadav who shined in the 1st T20I failed to get wicket in the 2nd game.

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 right-handed batsman scored a century in the opening game before failing to score in other two games. Rahul fell as Jordan took a brilliant catch in the deep. Despite that, India were on course with 70 on board for 2 wickets at the end of powerplay.

The Surrey opener was striking the ball beautifully down the ground and reached his half-century from 23 balls, only to fall in a rather tame manner, caught behind - one of five catches for MS Dhoni - trying to run a slower ball from debutant Deepak Chahar (1-43) down to third man.

The hosts ringed in just one change, Ben Stokes coming in place of Joe Root. Rohit made an unbeaten 100 off just 56 balls, comprising 11 fours and 5 sixes.

Houston Rockets "Determined" To Sign Carmelo Anthony

Earlier, India captain Virat Kohli won the toss and elected to field first against England in the third and final T20I in Bristol on Sunday. For support he had KL Rahul during a 41-run second-wicket stand and Kohli in an 81-run association for the third wicket. Pandya slammed 33 off 14 after booking career best figure of 4/38. "Those 20 or 30 runs we missed out on in the back-end of our innings cost us", said the skipper.

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. Dhoni, who recently turned 37, also went on to become the first wicket-keeper to have 50 dismissals in the shortest format of the game.

But numerous decisive factors in this series - the variety of India's bowling, the strength of their batting - will apply to 50-over cricket, too. England's openers have gone hard at the bowlers from the start, while India have been far more circumspect.

In the next ball, Roy brought up his fifty in style, slapping Chahal for a six over long-on. 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.

Kohli ended up getting caught and bowled by Jordan.
