Are you excited to see new pictures of Prince Louis? The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh will not attend the christening. Last year, Pippa Middleton and her mother Carole were initially demoted in the stands simple to cause a delay.

The final T20I of the series in Bristol was a high-scoring affair, one that the fans were waiting for right through the series.

Only moments of brilliance from England kept India in check.

The key to India's success may well lie yet again with the wrist-spinners, especially Kuldeep Yadav. Not one, not two, but five superb catches, showed his exemplary level of fitness.

Speaking at the post-match presentation, Rohit said: "That's the style of my play".

"The character showed was something we are really proud of and as captain I was very happy to see that".

Vida's header appeared innocuous at first but it evaded everyone, including Akinfeev, and bounced into the corner. Vida removed his shirt as he ran away in celebration, possibly thinking Croatia were heading through.

Kohli said: "The comeback from the bowlers was outstanding - I thought they would end up getting 225 or 230 which would have been tough".

They got the team off to a flying start. Rohit looked at his imperious best from the get-go, even though Shikhar Dhawan's lean patch continued at the other end as the left-hander flicked a poor David Willey (1/37) delivery down the leg side to Jake Ball (1/39) at short fine leg. "It's a great way to start the tour".

Ben Stokes was introduced in the seventh over and he made an immediate impact by conceding just two runs from that over. "We have made calls like this in the past and we will make the call for the benefit of the team and put out our strongest XI", Morgan told reporters after the second T20I. But Hales and Morgan added 48 for the fourth wicket and Jonny Bairstow struck two sixes in a quickfire 28 to increase the momentum. "There was a lot more clarity in the shots that we played".

"Besides, the way he bowled gave him confidence".
