India win by seven wickets and take the series 2-1. That's a magnificent performance from India, given the cantering start that England made with the bat. Pandya, who finished it with the bat, came back brilliantly from an expensive first over to take four wickets and England's innings limped to the line. Then it was a masterclass of chasing from the India top order, led by one of the best in business in Rohit Sharma. We'll bring you the presentations shortly.

WATCH - Hardik Pandya hits the winning runs (Available in India only)

Snehil: "Hardik Pandya should be awarded the MoM as it was his 4 wickets that proved crucial. Add to that his hits at the end and you have a matchwinner."

Rtvesa: "Pandya ends the match MS Dhoni style. Looks like a capable successor to the Master Finisher."

Gaurav: "And with this India remain perfect in 3-match T20I series!"

Pradeep: "Yes, England is a new super power in ODI's but one way of stopping this England side is keep taking wickets...India done this today" And their T20 cricket is certainly not in the same shape as their ODI form. That series will be a cracker as well but, yes, you are certainly wright about the importance of taking wickets.

Arpit Sharma: "Every player has contributed in this series for India. May be the first time that India has got that much good start of an England tour. Only worry remain is shikhar dhawan's form and of course fielding can be much better."

Presentation time...the Man of the Match and Man of the Series is Rohit Sharma "That's the style of my play, assessing the conditions was important. We knew the wicket would be nice to play on. I was trying to hold the shape when playing the big shots. I like to be calm, not to panic too much, because once you are there you can make up the scoring. With the wicket being so good I just knew I had to stay there. [Pandya] is a fearless individual and that's what the team want him to do.

Eoin Morgan "We had a tremendous start with the bat and we didn't do ourselves justice...20 or 30 short. Our execution of shots wasn't there. Picking the right ball to hit is something we'll have to work on. India bowled, but on a small ground we'd have expected to score more than that. Thought we'd have to do something special with the ball and it's hard to defend on a ground like this. Hopefully we can learn as we go along. This series has produced three completely performances for us. We learn and hopefully improve."

Virat Kohli "I think the comeback from the bowlers was outstanding, we thought they would get 225-230. The character they showed is something we are really proud of. As captain, very happy to see that. We had the quality to bowl those wicket-taking deliveries. We applied pressure and pulled the game back. [Pandya] is a really good all-round cricketer, very confident, and the way he picked up those wickets is what you want to see in younger guys. Then he delivers with the bat, Rohit was obviously very special but Hardik was standout. The pitch was really flat, we enjoyed ourselves as batsmen. I think it was a brutal day for the bowlers. We backed up something and the guys produced the goods for us. We will continue to try different things in the batting order and the bowlers. The guys are taking this as an opportunity. Great to start with a series win."

Kohli goes and collects the trophy and celebrates with his team. They full deserve their series win, two very convincing performances either side of the defeat. On that note, we'll leave things there for today. The one-day series starts on Thursday at Trent Bridge (that could be a mountain of runs!) and we'll be back to bring you all the action. For now, though, it's goodbye from Alan and Gnasher. Thanks for joining us today.
