Bumrah, Sundar ruled out of England T20I series

I think because England haven't played so much IPL cricket, there was never that familiarity or that sort of warmth between the two teams as much as we have with the other teams, purely because we didn't know the guys enough to be able to have conversations with them.

Krunal too, like Chahar, has been in England for some time now with the India "A" squad after showing some consistent performances for Mumbai Indians in the IPL.

Bumrah, who specialises at bowling in the final overs, took part in light practise the day after the injury, however, didn't take part in the next match.

England have a 6-5 win-loss record against India in T20Is, and have won all three of their meetings in England so far. We certainly want to play positive and hard-fought cricket.

Two weeks ago when he left India, Kohli wanted to take a walk on the streets and enjoy a coffee.

India also plays three ODIs and five Tests during the series.

Just over a week into their trip, the Indians have been taking advantage of an unprecedented toasty beginning to the English summer - not limiting themselves to just sipping coffee but drinking in the pleasant sights and surroundings.

Preview: After a crushing 2-0 victory over minnows Ireland, India led by Virat Kohli will be up against a formidable England in the first of the three-match Twenty20 worldwide series (T20Is) at the Old Trafford in Manchester.

Moeen Ali, one of our own, has found his form as he ended up with 12 wickets in the 5 match ODI series against Australia and picked up 4 wickets in as many overs in the lone T20I against the same side.

"Of course, no one can guarantee results". We want to play competitive cricket against England.

"We definitely are", Kohli said when asked whether India had a stronger outfit than Australia at his eve-of-match press conference. It went into the hands of Kohli at deep midwicket, next ball, Buttler took a single got off the strike. In such circumstances, it would be vital to maintain mental balance and team spirit, Kohli pointed out. "We've just come off the IPL (Indian Premier League) and a couple of games against Ireland as well - where the team has looked great".

India are happy that the six-match limited-overs phase allows them to settle nicely into English conditions before the Test challenge. 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 global T20 cricket.

The tussle for middle-order spots continue and the likes of Dinesh Karthik and Manish Pandey may miss out to accommodate KL Rahul, who smashed a quickfire 70 in Dublin last week after opening the innings. "That's always my mindset for the time I have been captain; the team to play well and contribute as much as I can". "We have nothing to lose and we just want to improve as a team". Maybe we can be a bit better.
