To start off the series, the Indian team management is to go in for set combinations.
Last but not the least, two England teams will be playing at the same time on Tuesday evening with the football team's pre-quarterfinal match against Colombia in Russian Federation going on simultaneously.
"Purely because we didn't know the guys enough to be able to have conversations with them".
"This season has broken that barrier to a great extent and I think it will happen in future as well".
All eyes will also be on the former skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who was in great touch in the Indian Premier League (IPL) for eventual champions Chennai Super Kings. "As Jos has been saying for months now, it has done great things to his mindset and he's taking that on in every format", Kohli was all praise of the England batsman.
Japanese team leaves dressing room spotless even after devastating loss to Belgium
Keisuke Honda announced his retirement from global football following Japan's elimination from the World Cup at the hands of Belgium on Monday night.
"I am not surprised with the way Jos has played", he said. "That's always my mindset for the time I have been captain". Apart from that, Chris Woakes and Moeen Ali were in our team (Royal Challengers Bangalore) as well. But he injured himself during a training session ahead of the first T20I game at Dublin. Before the United Kingdom tour, India beat Ireland 2-nil in the two Twenty20 match series. There's little doubt that, after a 6-0 start to the white-ball leg of England's home summer, the true examination of their limited-overs progress is just about to begin. We have a lot of T20 experience. Because it's not such a long batting innings, you can afford to do that. The opposition has to get in.
One of the things India have stressed on in recent times is to have a fixed set of openers - Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma - with Kohli often at No. 3, and then change up the order depending on the situation.
"I don't think it will be a distraction - the guys are passionate about it, but will be focused on (this) game. Having had a few days off and time to reflect on the series, it's something we can call upon -and might need to in either series, the Twenty20 or the ODIs, when our backs are against the wall".
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. Obviously you want to perform as an individual. He subsequently underwent scans and was seen by a specialist. So much so that Kohli reckoned the missed County stint with Surrey was hardly worth fretting over.
"So we haven't completely drawn a line under it. India are a tough team and we will have to be at our best to beat them", said Morgan. Even as the format that pleases those with commercial interests in the game the most, and rakes in advertisement moolah like no other, the absence of cricketing context is quite stark. Especially I spoke to [Cheteshwar] Pujara, and Ishant [Sharma] as well, who've been here before. "In T20Is, we can afford to do that because they are short", he said. But we will play fearless cricket.
