Virat Kohli Celebrates KL Rahul's Blistering Knock in Style

England's batsmen, notably Jonny Bairstow and Joe Root, just didn't seem to pick Kuldeep's wrong 'un - which he bowled a stack of - and the rarity of left-arm wrist-spinners gives him a certain novelty value.

Virat Kohli-led Team India is all set to kick-start two-month long English tour when they will face Eoin Morgan led England side for the 1st T20I at Old Trafford. The first T20 global will be played on June 3 at Old Trafford, Manchester.

They had started at a decent lick too, with Jason Roy opening up with a frenetic 30 from 20 balls, only for his demise - chopping on to the stumps via the pull shot that had met fresh air a couple of times previously - to bring Alex Hales to the crease for what proved a torturous 18-ball eight that gummed up the works. After six overs, India had the same number of runs, 53, as England.

"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".

"We are certainly going to be lot more flexible". "I never bowl looking at who the batsman is".

"We weren't good enough in Bengaluru (when Yuzvendra Chahal took 6-25 in February 2017)".

With the United Kingdom enjoying a sustained spell of hot weather, Yadav said he felt comfortable at Old Trafford. Then when I came to bowl in the second over, I kept the pace down, and increased the flight and maintained it.

It is legitimate to question how many fouls have gone unpunished, however, and how close both teams have pushed the boundaries. Some of my players know them better than I do.

"Probably after this game, and for the next few games, England´s batsmen will prepare well".

Jos Buttler's seventh T20 half-century in his last eight attempts, dating back to his Indian Premier League heroics for Rajasthan Royals, hinted at much better than England's eventual 8-159 after being put in. He's only the second player to score half-centuries in their first three innings opening, following Sri Lanka's Mahela Jayawardene in 2010, and tonight he carried this England effort nearly singlehandedly.

"Kuldeep is a very good bowler", Morgan said. Maybe we can be a bit better. Kuldeep took four wickets in that time, too, including three in an over. "No one can guarantee results, just wanting to win every session and every ball that we play". "Surprisingly or funnily, I don't think from fans' or outside point of view".

"If you're facing a guy who turns it both ways, and disguises it well, it's very hard to replicate - because there is nobody else who bowls like that".

While England's game plan at the start of their batting innings is clear - and with Buttler at the top of the order, working better than ever - they need to work out a similar method once the fielding restrictions are over.

"Jos Buttler is a magnificent player of spin". If you go back and analyse how Alex Hales and Jos played him, it was actually pretty smart.

He escaped one chance when Jason Roy put him down off David Willey on 17, but was otherwise imperious as he cashed in his second T20 global hundred with 10 fours and five sixes.

"He´s someone who has come a long way - he batted so clean, so crisp in the IPL and he has carried it forward", added the India skipper.
