India make two changes for England tour

As a cricketer, you look for new challenges every now and then. "What I want is the team to play well and I just want team to play good cricket and I want to lead from the front and that's always been my mindset", the captain said.

On the other hand, England will look to continue their winning momentum and form which they showed against Australia. He was calm, not the busybody, full of intent as he is on match day or training. The pitch for the fifth England-Australia ODI here just over a week ago provided some turn as well, and Moeen Ali prospered to pick up a four-wicket haul.

With veteran Suresh Raina in great hitting form at No.3, and skipper Kohli at No.4, it will be interesting to see if the team management includes the in-form Lokesh Rahul in the middle order. India's supremacy in the shortest format's is undoubted.

"We expect England to come hard at us but we certainly want to play positive and hard-fought cricket, so it's going to be an exciting series for sure", said Kohli.

Chahar is now playing for India A squad in England in the 50-over tri-series, featuring England Lions and West Indies A.

Eoin Morgan (7) holed out to the first ball and after Buttler took a single, Jonny Bairstow (0) and Joe Root (0) were both completely flummoxed as they played forward, over-balanced and were stumped, Bairstow beaten past the outside edge and Root through the gate.

The three-match T20I series involving India and England will start on Tuesday (3rd July), the first match of the tournament will be played at the Old Trafford, Manchester.

India will conclude their United Kingdom tour with 5 Test matches, the first of which will begin from the 1st of next month at Birmingham.

"Meanwhile, Jasprit Bumrah has a fractured left thumb and has been ruled out of the upcoming T20I series against England". "No one can guarantee results, just wanting to win every session and every ball that we play".

"Because we don't get to play so much cricket here before we come on tour".

Here we predicted a playing XI of the Indian team for the first T20I against England.

"Purely because we didn't know the guys enough to be able to have conversations with them". In such circumstances, it would be vital to maintain mental balance and team spirit, Kohli pointed out. "We are going to try a few players as we want to test their skills, especially in the limited-overs format", Kohli added.

Kohli says England will find India tougher than Aussies, who hosts beat 5-0 in ODIs India will provide far stiffer opposition for England than Australia did when it was whitewashed 5-0 in a one-day series then thrashed in a Twenty20 match, Indian captain Virat Kohli said Monday. "Wind is different. From a familiarity point of view it is a thing of comfort when you get weather conditions like this as soon as you arrive here", Kohli said.
