Kuldeep, Rahul power India to T20 win

England's form in ODI cricket has seen them climb to number one in the world in that format, but their T20 side remains a work in progress. But this game could have knock-on effects on the weeks and months ahead. Subsequently, he missed the second T20 global against Ireland on Friday. It is pleasurable to beat a good team in their own conditions. The skipper himself, Raina and MS Dhoni are the backbone of the batting line-up, while Manish Pandey is in running for the fourth spot on account of his good run in worldwide T20 cricket. Having made 221 in their last T20I, at Edgbaston last week, they will want to show they can flex their batting muscle just as much against an Indian attack containing the swing of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and the wristspin of Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav. Easy peasy for India as they win this one by 8 wickets! The search for those ingredients, however, has been long and frustrating, and it isn't over yet.

The Indian middle-order is an area where Kohli will look to get it right as KL Rahul, Dinesh Karthik and Manish Pandey fight for a slot.

The live telecast of 1st T20 worldwide match between ind vs eng will start at 10:00 PM (IST) on July 3, 2018 (Tuesday) in Old Trafford, Manchester.

The England vs India, 1st T20 global will take place on July 3, 2018. Given the riches of explosive talent around him, and given the imminent return of Ben Stokes from injury, Root might need to make a couple of defining contributions against India to reinforce his value in the shortest format. Bumrah injured his finger during the first T20I game against Ireland. Kohli chose to keep Kuldeep's final over in his back pocket but the left-armer returned for the 18th and, with Moeen Ali having already gone for six when slicing Pandya to cover, he duly wrapped up his maiden five-wicket haul when Kohli held Buttler at long-on. His England counterpart Eoin Morgan said regardless of Australia's side being under-strength, his side had come out of it with many positives to take into the India series.

Virat Kohli is eight runs short of becoming the first Indian, and the fourth batsman overall, to 2000 in T20Is. At least there was some improvement in the next two matches against New Zealand. One of his potential opponents on Tuesday, Liam Plunkett, holds the overall record for matches missed between T20I appearances (74). "That is something I have learnt very early on, and today I am not scared of getting hit", said Kuldeep after his impressive haul. England would want to win it back in their home. As a cricketer, you look for new challenges every now and then, that's something I wanted to go and experience because we don't play too much cricket here before we come on tour. It is undoubtedly a battle of equals with both teams looking to draw first blood in a summer where the teams will also play three ODIs and five Test matches. "We have been talking in the lead-in, how this series and the next two weeks will be completely different (from the Australia series)".
