Rohit, 32, was given caught behind with Gough overturning the on-field umpire's not out decision early in the match.

A day after the match, Rohit took to Twitter to show the proof of his innocence.

Rohit could score only 18 runs off 23 balls, but India won the match by 125-runs after setting a 269-run target.

Skipper Virat Kohli was the leading scorer with 72 off 82 balls, while MS Dhoni contributed with an unbeaten 565 off 61.

Pacer Mohammed Shami led the bowling attack with his back-to-back four-wicket haul.

The win helped India moved closer to the semifinals. India take on hosts England on Sunday at Edgbaston, Birmingham.
