When India vs England, 1st T20 match is be played? However, we should expect a batting friendly pitch that can assist the spinners to some extent with a high scoring encounter on the cards. "Playing against a good team in their conditions and at their home, to get the opportunity to be able to beat them in their home conditions, it is a point of excitement for us not pressure". Although Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Kohli and MS Dhoni pick themselves, the rest of the top six remains undecided.
India have suffered a setback ahead of the series with Jasprit Bumrah ruled out with a fractured thumb.
But Kuldeep Yadav did the damage with a maiden five-wicket haul at this level before Rahul (101no) made short work of the chase as India prevailed with eight wickets and 10 balls to spare, leaving England to contemplate a reality check following last month's six-game white-ball whitewash of Australia. Hardik Pandya has is the all-rounder who's grown a lot as a fast bowler and he will be entrusted with the 5th bowler's duties.

Portugal stepped up the tempo after the restart and were rewarded when Uruguay were caught napping by a short corner. The South American team is at the top of the "fair play" table with only one yellow card at the World Cup .
Deepak Chahar and Krunal Pandya have received their maiden global call-ups.
Kohli admitted he understood England would "come hard", but felt the vastly experienced Indians had enough know-how to challenge England in the limited-overs leg. But they bounced back and won the ODI series 3-1, with the first ODI of the five-match series being washed out without a ball being bowled.
England: Eoin Morgan (capt), Moeen Ali, Jonny Bairstow, Jake Ball, Jos Buttler (wk), Sam Curran, Tom Curran, Alex Hales, Chris Jordan, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Jason Roy, David Willey, Dawid Malan.
India removed Roy in the fifth over when he mistimed a pull shot off seamer Umesh Yadav (2-21) through midwicket and ended up chopping on to his stumps for a 20-ball 30. England didn't require his services with the bat but we've witnessed how risky he can be on his day. He continues to be one of the best Test batsmen for India, especially when playing overseas but his failure in the shorter formats of the game and the emergence of players like KL Rahul have led to his exclusion from both the formats of the game. India will certainly look to better this record and repeat what they did in the limited overs in the South Africa tour. "The middle order in the ODIs has been something that we have been looking for, so we have a few things that we want to try out and address there as well".
