Time for us to bid goodbye. Will see you for the ODI series which starts on Thursday. Thank you for joining us and hope to see you soon. Good friends at the sports desk will be running the LIVE blog for FIFA World Cup. Do cheggit.

Virat Kohli, India captain: Absolutely. The comeback from the bowlers was outstanding. At one point it looked as if they were going to reach 225, which would have been really tough on this surface. Immensely proud of the team. Very happy as a captain. Just hit our areas better I guess. We have the qualities to bowl wicket-taking deliveries as well. 25-30 runs in this format can be massiveWe executed it really well and put the pressure back on them. He is really good all-round cricketer. He is very sure of what he wants to do. He got 33 off litreally nothing. It was difficult for the bowlers, was a flat wicket and we enjoyed it as batsman. Brutal day for the bowlers. Don't like to look at in the hindsight but we could've added another bowler. Guys produced goods for us. Very important. The guys are taking this as an opportunity. You saw the kind of energy and attitude we had on the field. Great to have a win at the start of the tour.

22:22 (IST)

Eoin Morgan, England captain: Jason Roy, Buttler proved how dominant force they are with the bat. We did not do justice to their effort at the top. We have to work hard on finding right balls to hit. India bowled well. On a small ground, you had to score more than that. When a guy like Rohit hits a hundred, it is very difficult to stop. When you play against India and Pakistan, you see a good support. This series has produced three different performances. We have learnt and we now go from here and improve. It is exciting. Trent Bridge is good ground for us. Hopefully, the ODI series will as entertaining as this series was.

Indian team gets on to the podium to collect the medallions and will be followed by lifting the trophy!

22:20 (IST)

This was always going to be a clash of two brilliant limited-overs' sides... and it has turned out to be so... India have trumped England 2-1 here and we have another clash starting on Thursday in the ODI format. England were slight favourites for this series, and perhaps for the ODIs as well. That has changed now. Clearly India are favourites, but the key thing is that both teams have sized each other up. There is a good chance the ODI series will have even more fireworks because England are an even better ODI side, just like India.

The master enjoyed it as well. With some spot on prediction!

22:18 (IST)

Rohit Sharma: That's the style of the play. Always knew it was going to be a good pitch. Idea was to hold the shape and play my shots. When I bat, I like to be calm and not to panic too much. Important to spend some time in the middle and then you have chance to make up. I always knew it that if stay there wicket will get easier. He has done it now for few years. The way he bowled gave him a lot of confidence to come out and bat well.

22:18 (IST)

Rohit Sharma is the Man of the Match and Man of the Series

Some serious hitting from the ultimate HITMAN!

India vs England, 3rd T20I, latest score and updates: Hardik Pandya finishes it in grand fashion. A huge six over long on to celebrate T20I series win in England. Brings up the 200 as well, in case that matters. India reached the target with 8 balls to spare. Remarkable batting performance by India and they were lead by opener Rohit Sharma, who scored a 56-ball century.

 

Preview: With England winning the second Twenty20 International to level the series at 1-1, India will aim to improve the performance and win the third and decisive contest here on Sunday.

In the second match, England bowling attack restricted India to a below-par score of 148/5.

Leaving their previous mistakes behind which they committed in the first T20I, the English bowlers came accurate with the line and length as they struck at regular intervals to deny the visitors post a challenging total on batting-friendly wicket.

Apart from skipper Kohli (47), Mahendra Singh Dhoni (32 not out) no other Indian batsmen clicked and went cheaply. Suresh Raina, however, tried to contribute but the Uttar Pradesh batsmen only managed to score 27 runs.

So, if India want to seal the series, then top-order batsmen like Shikhar Dhawan, who failed in both the matches, Rohit Sharma, Lokesh Rahul need to score big.

In the bowling department, unlike first match, Bowlers failed to impress. Pacer Umesh Yadav was the only sucessful bowling, scalping two wickets. Other bowlers--Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal only managed to take one wicket.

In order to restrict England to dominate the visitors, the spin duo of Kuldeep and Chahal have to click along with the pacers.

England, on the other hand, seemed like they did their homework perfectly. After they got thrashing in the first match, the hosts bounced back in style in the second match, thanks to some good bowling and batsman Alex Hales.

Right from the start, England were better team with both bat and ball. Firstly their bowlers did a fantastic job to restrict India to a below-par score and then batsmen, especially Hales and Johnny Bairstow (28) made the road easy for the hosts.

In the final match, their might be only one concern. After getting the start, their top-order batsmen are getting out. Jason Roy (15) Jos Buttler (14), Joe Root along with Eoin Morgan (17) got the start but failed to convert into big innings.

The bowling department also seemed settled but towards the end the English bowers are leaking runs. So to trouble the Indian side, bowlers need to stop the flow of runs towards the end and top-order batsmen need to click.

Squads:

England: Jason Roy, Jos Buttler (wk), Alex Hales, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan (c), Jonny Bairstow, David Willey, Liam Plunkett, Chris Jordan, Adil Rashid, Jake Ball, Sam Curran, Dawid Malan, Moeen Ali.

India: Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Lokesh Rahul, Virat Kohli (c), Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Umesh Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Dinesh Karthik, Manish Pandey, Krunal Pandya, Deepak Chahar, Siddarth Kaul.
