England vs India, 1st T20 worldwide live broadcast will be shown on the Sony Network (Sony Six and Sony Ten 3) and live streaming will be available on SonyLIV.com.

Indian fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah and batsman Washington Sundar have been ruled out of the three-match Twenty20 global series against England that starts on Tuesday due to injury, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has said. Thus, the Indian team will like to tick the right boxes. "This is what we did in South Africa".

"At the start of any tour, we are as excited as the opposition". The ODI series to follow will begin on June 12. If the mindset is not right after a few days or after a couple of weeks, things get more hard. It is a great time to play cricket there.

Young Kuldeep (5/24 in 4 overs) became the first chinaman bowler to take a five-for in shortest format as he singlehandedly restricted England to below-par 159 for 8 on a flat deck. However the English skipper Eoin Morgan has indicated the fact that the team might bring in changes keeping in mind the World Twent20 in 2020.

"But looking at the weather it is totally opposite to what it was when the season was going on". I mean it is as dry as I've seen it ever.

In the absence of Jasprit Bumrah, Umesh Yadav in all likelihood will be part of the playing XI.

The knockout stages are upon us and the tournament is set for a number of exciting fixtures in the Round of 16 . Top stat: With nine goals scored in their three group games, Belgium are the top scorers in the competition.

"I spoke with Cheteshwar Pujara and Ishant Sharma as well who've been here before".

"Because we don't get to play so much cricket here before we come on tour". That's the main reason for the excitement. Not only did he prove hard for England's batsmen to get away but he kept on taking wickets which isn't the worst combination. "Let's hope I'm still there".

"I think you will see more experimentation", he added. He got more opportunities to play this time, coming up at top of the order and he showed off his skills set. "But I haven't set any benchmarks or targets and come here to do certain things which have to be special just because the last tour here, I came on didn't go well". I don't think it is something. on [in] hindsight when I look at it now I don't think it would've made too much of a difference to my preparation. "For me, it's just a set of global games in another country and the mindset remains the same". India will be high on confidence after facile victories over Ireland but Kohli and co will not take the home side lightly as they recently thrashed Australia in T20I and ODIs. Kohli had no doubt his side could provide the hosts with stiffer competition.

Adil Rashid eventually broke the 123-run stand, Rohit (32) driving Rashid (1-25) straight into the hands of Morgan at covers, allowing the raucous Indian fans following a glimpse of Virat Kohli before the chase was done. No one can guarantee results but just wanting to win every ball, every session we play. It's going to be an exciting series for sure.

"We believe that we have the side to put up a great fight". If we win the crucial moments, then anything can happen on the day. Subsequently, he missed the second T20 global against Ireland on Friday. As a cricketer, you look for new challenges every now and then.

"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. While Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan are most likely to open the innings, India will also like to accommodate KL Rahul somewhere in the middle. We will throw in a few surprises here and there. Because it's not such a long batting innings, you can afford to do that.
