Hardik Pandya played an important role in India's victory over England.

With cricket's blue riband tournament scheduled to be held in United Kingdom next year, the ODI series will give Virat Kohli an ideal opportunity to get a drift about the conditions that his men are expected to encounter at exactly same time next year.

Veteran M S Dhoni was at his best behind the stumps, taking five catches and effecting one brilliant run out in the last ball of England's innings to get the wicket of Chris Jordan.

The bowlers had their moments, certainly.

England captain Eoin Morgan said his side was 20-30 runs short in the third T20 worldwide against India and blamed the death-overs' batting collapse for the score, which wasn't enough despite being steep. Roy and Buttler stitched together 94-run partnership for the first wicket.

In List A matches, five 400+ scores have been hit at this venue and England have done so twice in worldwide cricket here.
