INDIAN all-rounder Hardik Pandya credited Rohit Sharma for the team’s comprehensive win in the series-clinching third and final T20 International against England, saying it was a special innings from the elegant batsman after two ordinary outings.Rohit struck his third T20I hundred as India chased down a 199-run target with seven wickets in hand here last night to pocket the three-match series 2-1.“Rohit played amazingly well. He was outstanding and played a fantastic hand. He won the game single-handedly for us. We expect that from him. I haven’t seen anyone hit the ball as hard as Rohit,” Pandya told reporters at the post-match press conference.


“Not having two good games and then coming back to play such an innings, that is special. It shows the confidence players have in this team, in themselves. It all comes down to the support staff. They have been great,” he added. Rohit did not have the best of outings with the bat in the first two T20s against England, scoring 32 and 5. But he got back his mojo last night and smashed an unbeaten 100 off just 56 balls with the help of 11 boundaries and five sixes to steer India home.
