England captain Eoin Morgan ready for India challenge

Jasprit Bumrah

Over the last three years, England have resurrected their limited-overs' fortunes and are one of the most attacking outfits in ODIs/T20Is in world cricket now. He was calm, not the busybody, full of intent as he is on match day or training.

Buttler carried stunning IPL form, which saw him hit five consecutive half-centuries for his franchise, into England's worldwide season, nailing his Test recall then starring against Australia in the ODI series.

Can the Indian spin twins succeed in England?

Later on, he would go on to throw the challenge to England who, he reminded, had lost in all three formats during their 2016-17 tour of India.

"We have actually been able to create flat wickets into wicket-taking wickets with the variety we have in the attack", skipper Kohli had said, referring to his wrist-spinners before the team departed for the United Kingdom tour.

"Having had a few days off and time to reflect on the series [against Australia], it's something we can call upon and might need to in either series, the Twenty20 or the ODIs, when our backs are against the wall".

"We believe that we have the side to put up a great fight".

Two weeks ago when he left India, Kohli wanted to take a walk on the streets and enjoy a coffee.

The 29-year old batsman achieved the landmark in the first T20I against England at Old Trafford in Manchester on Tuesday.

But Drake , who has been criticized by some as too commercial and too soft, is back on top seemingly unfazed. But he also cops to being "embarrassed" about having a child with a woman who he says he only met twice.

On the bowling front, Jasprit Bumrah's thumb injury will be a concern as he has played a big role with his death overs bowling.

Chahar impressed for India A in the tri-series against West Indies A and England Lions and was also effective for this year's Indian Premier League (IPL) champions Chennai Super Kings, with the 25-year-old collecting 10 wickets in 12 matches. "No one can guarantee results, just wanting to win every session and every ball that we play".

"Take away from this tour will obviously be the way we play our cricket, the mindset and attitude we maintain for the length of the tour that we play".

"There was never that familiarity or warmth between the two teams before, purely because we didn't know the guys enough", said Kohli, who captained Moeen Ali and Chris Woakes at Royal Challengers Bangalore. In such circumstances, it would be vital to maintain mental balance and team spirit, Kohli pointed out. Thus, the Indian team will like to tick the right boxes.

Of course, one defeat does not suddenly make England a bad side but there were clearly areas where they were exposed in Manchester.

"We definitely are", Kohli said when asked whether India had a stronger outfit than Australia at his eve-of-match press conference.

Keeping the 2019 World Cup in mind, Kohli said India will keep experimenting on the tour. The rest of it looks sorted with Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan opening the batting, followed by Kohli, Suresh Raina and MS Dhoni. Then it was the turn of opener Rahul, who smashed his second T20 global hundred en route his 54-ball-101 as India comfortably chased the target in 18.2 overs.
