England's Colombia clash not a T20 distraction, insists Morgan

Jasprit Bumrah

Where is India vs England 1st T20I?

England's standing as world cricket's most fearsome ODI line-up is predicated upon their treating ODIs as extended T20 games.

Eoin Morgan (7) holed out to the first ball and after Buttler took a single, Jonny Bairstow (0) and Joe Root (0) were both completely flummoxed as they played forward, over-balanced and were stumped, Bairstow beaten past the outside edge and Root through the gate.

"England visited India back in 2016-17, and we won the trophy at that time". The search for those ingredients, however, has been long and frustrating, and it isn't over yet.

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.

Rahul dominated the run chase, smashing 10 fours and five sixes, as India romped home with 10 balls to spare at Old Trafford.

Deepak Chahar and Krunal Pandya have received their maiden global call-ups.

Germany World Cup exit has no bearing on England, says Gareth Southgate
As the game wound down, people started sneaking away and then streaming home after South Korea's second goal in the final minutes. Germany are reigning World Cup Champions, having claimed the title in 2014 in Brazil while beating Brazil 7-1 in the semi-finals.

It will have noise cancellation and water resistance, but the latter will mainly protect the device against rain and perspiration. When Apple launched AirPods in 2016, the earbuds went on sale with limited supply following a delay.


Old Trafford usually offers more pace and bounce than other English pitches, though not a lot of seam movement. Up front, Kohli was asked whether India were ready for the "stern" test posed by England, who had recently blanked out Australia 6-0 in white-ball cricket. He was calm, not the busybody, full of intent as he is on match day or training.

Therefore, with both the teams being in consistent form, it would be a tough call to predict the victor for tonight's match.

The weather leading up to the game has been warm and dry, with temperatures in the mid-to-late 20s (Celsius).

The latter's departure with 30 runs required gave the partisan crowd a final chance to chant Kohli's name and, after Rahul completed his second global century in this format, the Indian captain smoked Moeen over the long-on boundary to complete this one-sided win.

"We are certainly going to try a lot of cricketers as well in the T20 matches, test their characters, test their skills and work out accordingly who will be the next lot to come in, especially to the limited overs format and from there on, they can build on it and play test cricket as well". There is no doubt that both Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal will play.

"We expect England to come hard at us". While Chris Jordan was the third man out first ball - caught and bowled by Umesh Yadav off his pad - David Willey was in no mood to go down with a whimper, blasting 29 from 15 balls, adding a touch of fight in some verbals with Bhuvneshwar Kumar, and an early breakthrough in the chase when Shikhar Dhawan played on in the first over.

The challenge of beating England in their own den and then walking away with the spoils is "exciting" and not daunting.
