Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli's opening partnership set the tone for a brilliant come from behind victory as India claimed the T20I series 3-2 against England at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Saturday. A complete performance from India helped the hosts win their 8th T20I series on the trot.
England would take a lot of learning from this series to prepare for the upcoming T20 World Cup.
"It was a complete game for us. Totally outplayed the opposition. Even with so much dew coming in, like last game we've defended the total again. Today was a complete game. Despite Rishabh and Iyer not getting a chance we put on 225, testimony to our batting depth. Today Rohit and me were both positive in our intent. We knew we could trust each other and one of us can play second fiddle if one takes off. Today it was classic Rohit Sharma. And then Surya coming in at three and taking the game even further away. Then Hardik finishing it."
-Virat Kohli, India skipper
