India beat England, Sachin hails Rohit for 'clean hitting'

India was never tested despite a target of almost 200.

India once again showed how tough a team they are to stop in a chase as they plundered the 199-run chase with seven wickets and eight balls to spare. "That's what the team wants him to do". Pandya was the pick of the bowlers, accounting for four wickets.

Congratulating India on their win, Tendulkar further tweeted, "Perfect weather. flawless conditions and a ideal result for #TeamIndia".

Virat Kohli came in and caressed his second ball to the midwicket fence, with as much as a feather touch. At the halfway mark, India had fallen 11 runs behind what England had at the same time. That contest is notable because India were 1-0 down, and came back to win the series 2-1.

Lokesh Rahul (19) was brilliantly caught by Chris Jordan running back from mid-on and the all-rounder took another outstanding catch to dismiss India captain Virat Kohli off his own bowling for 43.

He saw off the last remaining over of Rashid without taking any risks, but didn't shy away from going after the pacers.

Rohit, in the next over, completed his hundred by dabbing the ball towards backward point while Pandya hit Jordan for a six to guide India over the line.

Fortunately, the ref's first name didn't prevent Harry Maguire from heading home England's opener after half an hour. Another Swedish daily waves goodbye to their World Cup dreams, saying 'Bye bye, Sweden '.

Jason Roy gave England a rollicking start at Bristol.

"If we had Joe as a sixth bowler - which we needed today - an extra spinner against India didn't really match up that well".

The Indian captain began to gain in confidence as he hit another six off Plunkett before he fell victim of Jordan in the 15th over, caught and bowled by the bowler in a soft dismissal. Once we see off the new ball, we always knew wicket was a good one with short boundaries.

The powerplay yielded 73 and the only realistic chance India had during the early carnage was a mistimed slog sweep from Buttler in Yuzvendra Chahal's first over, but the ball popped out of Siddarth Kaul's hands.

With wickets falling at regular intervals, England managed only 87 runs in the second half of their innings despite being at a rather comfortable 111/2 from their first ten.

Buttler and Roy scored 73/0 in six overs with both in-form batters smacking 10 fours and four sixes in the process. However, Pandya reaped the rewards of it in a game-changing second spell where he picked all of his wickets for just 16 runs. The rest of the batsmen could not take England past the 200-mark but still posted a more than par total.

The onslaught was led by openers Jason Roy (67) and wicketkeeper Jos Buttler (34), who shared a 94-run opening partnership in 7.5 overs, coupled by poor bowling from the Indian bowlers, who were guilty of bowling either too full or short.
