Hales leads England to dramatic win over India

  • England batsmen faced deliveries from Merlyn- the spin bowling machine- to tackle Kuldeep and Chahal better

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.

The tourists were therefore always favourites in the chase, and completed it with eight balls to spare.

Eoin Morgan admitted that he would have chased had he won the toss but despite a healthy covering of grass, it soon became clear that there were plenty of runs to be had on this pitch as England made a blistering start.

A manic conclusion to the innings saw five wickets fall in 15 balls, albeit for 21 runs, as Hardik Pandya finished with a career-best four for 38.

Just then, though, Pandya hit the first two balls of the 17th over for fours, and India were back on track.

England insist Stokes has no injury worries and is fit for selection leaving Hales or Jake Ball, who made his T20I debut in Friday's last-over five-wicket win facing exclusion.

Earlier, England batsmen faced resistance from Indian bowlers as the latter kept picking wickets on regular intervals but the batsmen put up a decent show and kept the scoreboard running.

The bowlers had their moments, certainly.

England lost four wickets for 46 runs before Ben Stokes (14) and Jonny Bairstow (25 off 14 balls) had a 37-run partnership. He's confident with his skills with both bat and ball. However, preserving that impressive record will require India to find their best form against a resurgent England.

"India were probably on top of their game today, and we weren't - and we were just short". He lauded the effort of his bowlers to come back at the back end and restrict England to a sub-par total while praising Pandya and centurion Rohit for their efforts.

It was also important to remain calm and not panic, Rohit pointed out.

The pace of the three right-arm quicks posed Jos Buttler and Jason Roy no challenge.

The 24-year-old had a nightmare start to his afternoon when he conceded 22 from his first over before bouncing back with a match-winning performance.

Roy became debutant pacer Deepak Chahar's maiden global dismissal but not before his 31-ball 67 had pulverized India's bowling attack and put England in control. But while the home team's slide started at this stage, India overcame the sluggish phase and marched ahead of England's respective score to consistently bring down the required rate and the pressure, if any. Hardik Pandya played along with Rohit and eased the burden.

Meanwhile, MS Dhoni bagged five catches and became the only wicket-keeper in the world to as many scalps in a T20I match.
