Bristol: He did not enjoy much of the success in the first two games of the series but it was Rohit Sharma show all the way as India beat England to clinch the three-match Twenty20 series here on Sunday.

While Hardik Pandya hammered a quickfire 33 (not out) off 14 balls, following his four-wicket haul earlier in the day and MS Dhoni etched his name in the record books, Rohit joined the party as he scored an unbeaten hundred (100* off 56 balls) as India chased down the 199-run target with eight balls to spare.

 

The Mumbai batsman had missed a chance to score a hundred when India took on Ireland in June this year after he was dismissed for 97 in the first of the two-match T20 series.

However, he did not miss out this time around as he notched up his third T20I hundred on Sunday to become only the second batsman after New Zealand’s Colin Munro and the first Indian to score three hundreds in T20Is.

The 31-year-old also become the only batsman who has at least three hundreds across all the formats of the game – Tests, ODIs and T20Is.
