India beat England by seven wickets in the third and final T20 International to clinch the three-match series 2-1 in Bristol on Sunday.

Rohit Sharma's elegant unbeaten century made it a walk in the park for India as the Indian vice-captain made a target of 199 look ridiculously easy on a small Bristol ground.

Though it was a grand opening for England with batsman Jason Roy raining sixes in his blistering innings of 67 off just 31 balls, India made a superb fightback on the back of Hardik Pandya's four-wicket haul.

The Virat Kohli brigade finally restricted England to 198 for nine to end the first innings of the match.

Meanwhile, during the England innings, Indian wicketkeeper Mahendra Singh Dhoni has become the first keeper to complete 50 catches in T20Is by taking 5 catches.

Here are the Brief scores of both the innings:

England: 198/9 in 20 overs (Jason Roy 67, Jos Buttler 34, Alex Hales 30; Hardik Pandya 4/38).

India: 201 for 3 in 18.4 overs (Rohit Sharma 100 not out, Virat Kohli 43; David Willey 1/37).
