India make two changes for England tour

England captain Eoin Morgan ready for India challenge Kohli's men brace for challenging English summer

At the very venue, Buttler hit a valiant and unbeaten 110 to help England complete the ODI series whitewash.

India vs England 2018: India took a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.

India are slated to play three-match T20I series, three-match ODI series and five Tests beginning July 3. If you have a target in mind or a target in front of you, then you play according to that. The openers Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy have been in tremendous form and will look to continue the same form against the strong side.

Regrouping after nearly a three-month long gap, India used the Ireland T20Is as a good warm-up, registering facile wins of 72 and 143 runs but more importantly giving the whole squad good game time before the challenging series against the Englishmen.

India suffered a blow as Jasprit Bumrah was ruled out of the T20I series, but bowling is a department India won't be much concerned about. He will be replaced by Deepak Chahar for the England series. In the last couple of seasons Bumrah has been the go-to-man for Kohli in the death overs.

England, meanwhile, made a few strategic changes by putting assistant coach Paul Farbrace in charge of the T20 team for the Australia and India series, while head coach Trevor Bayliss simultaneously took to domestic cricket scouting. The wicketkeeper-batsman scored two half-centuries and a century in the ODIs against Australia and a 30-ball 60 in the one-off T20I as recently as June 27.

While England impressed against Australia, the tourists were without a raft of first choice players including former captain Steve Smith and his deputy David Warner, who are serving one-year bans for their roles in March's ball-tampering scandal. The rest of it looks sorted with Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan opening the batting, followed by Kohli, Suresh Raina and MS Dhoni. In T20 cricket, you have to be at your absolute best because the game is so short and you don't have second chances.

James dearly missed Irving's shot-making and firepower in the 2018 Finals, as Cleveland's point guard corps was an utter mess. The three-time National Basketball Association champion and best player in the world has not been a free agent in four years.

England though do not have much to fret over as the team has done exceedingly well ever since they got Buttler at the top of the innings with Roy.

It was always unlikely that Moeen and Adil Rashid would recreate the havoc wreaked by Kuldeep, and so it proved.

Moeen Ali (6) kept out the hat-trick ball but soon sliced one to mid-off, handing Hardik Pandya a wicket to leave the hosts 117-6. As England fans watching the football on a giant screen behind the pavilion went berserk, so did Indian fans inside the ground. Kohli, though, wasn't surprised with Buttler's highly impressive showing.

Ominously for England, India took their foot off the gas as they approached victory.

Roy has shown some good performances against the Australian bowlers, but it wasn't their best attack on offer.

Virat Kohli will be the player to watch out for as he did not have an ideal outing in Ireland and will be itching to get some runs under his belt.

"We believe in our ability as a team and we have a lot of T20 experience", the India captain said in Manchester on match eve. But Plunkett's awkward bounce off a length could trouble the left-hander who isn't known to have a sound defence.
