Rohit Sharma's unbeaten century and Hardik Pandya's four-wicket haul helped India breeze past England by seven wickets in the 3rd T20 international at the County Ground in Bristol to clinch the three-match series 2-1. Chasing 199 for victory, India opener Rohit Sharma scored 100 not out off 56 balls to guide India to a resounding win over England. Apart from praising Pakistan team, who defeated Australia in the tri-series final, former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar applauded Team India and Rohit Sharma's valiant efforts against England. "Pakistan beats Australia in a thriller & now in decider Hindustan beats England comprehensively that goes to shows that subcontinent teams are so well equipped in shorter format ..But outstanding innings by Rohit Sharma..3 hundred in T20 is something else," Akhtar's post read.

Akhtar's tweet didn't go well with some of the Pakistan fans as they started trolling the former Pakistan cricketer.

Put in to bat by captain Virat Kohli, England posted 198 for 9. For India, Hardik Pandya returned career-best figures of 4/38.

In reply, riding on Rohit's brilliance, India made 201/3 in 18.4 overs. Pandya also played an unbeaten 14-ball 33-run cameo. This was India's sixth successive T20I series win.
