India stand to benefit from T20I series scheduling

04 July 2018

More surprisingly (or not), a pre-match press conference in Manchester has multiple references to the Indian Premier League, where only recently England had 13 participants - their most-ever. It is a great time to play cricket there. I feel anyone who plays well on that particular day has better chances of winning.

He said: "When you play against sub-continent teams, it normally exposes sides like us and South Africa and Australia to spin, reverse swing - different challenges to that we are normally used to. We have enough T20 experience to know what to do when", he said about England's penchant for high scores. "Let's hope I'm still there".

England shuffled their line-up in their sole T20 against Australia following that ODI win, and that is something Morgan says will continue to happen as they look for the right batting order ahead of the ICC World T20 in two years' time.

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.

Bumrah, on the other hand, has a fractured left thumb and has been ruled out of the upcoming T20I series against England.

"You have to be open-minded about potentially changing the order down the line". It's as dry as I have seen it ever. Especially I spoke to [Cheteshwar] Pujara, and Ishant [Sharma] as well, who've been here before.

"Surprisingly or funnily, I don't think from fans' or outside point of view".

"It doesn't matter whether I get runs or don't get runs [he got 258 at an average of 129], what I want is the team to play well and the team to win".

"Looking at the weather, not at all". "Obviously, you want to perform well as an individual, but I haven't set any benchmarks or targets to come here and do something special just because the last tour here didn't go too well. 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". "In T20Is, we can afford to do that because they are short", he said. The unavailability of the death overs specialist means India will be going into the series with an attack that have little or no experience playing in England and in English conditions.

"It gives an opportunity to test fringe players".

If India's tour of Ireland is to be talked about, it was nothing more than an exalted warm-up series for India before the grueling English summer begins. The pitch for the fifth England-Australia ODI here just over a week ago provided some turn as well, and Moeen Ali prospered to pick up a four-wicket haul.
