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

India will look to assert their supremacy in shorter formats as they take on a vastly improved England in the opening T20 global of the three-match series on Tuesday.

A PCB statement on Thursday said that Hassan is well on track of recovery, but confirmed that Hassan is yet to make a successful return to full training in attempt to make himself available for selection. He will be replaced by Deepak Chahar for the England series. "There will be less pressure on the bowling unit with Bumrah not playing the T20 series", More said while adding that the team management would be in a better position to understand the team dynamics. "We have all known all known about his ability in the past, but it is just that he's had more opportunity to play for Rajasthan this season to show his skillset, and he's certainly enjoying that role at the top of the order and he grabbed his chances with both hands".

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.

Kohli said his squad was expecting atough battle against England in their upcoming three-match T20 series, which begins at Old Trafford on Tuesday, as well as in five Tests and three ODIs that will keep them in England until September.

The current Indian team, by far looks the best limited over side India has ever had and they proved it in their tour of South Africa where they thrashed them in the ODIs and emerged victorious in the T20I series as well. And the English skipper said that the hot conditions will be a factor throughout the T20I and ODI series, with spin coming into play.

"What I want is the team to play well and the team to win".

"Take away from this tour will obviously be the way we play our cricket, the mindset and attitude we maintain for the length of the tour that we play". It is pleasurable to beat a good team in their own conditions. In such circumstances, it would be vital to maintain mental balance and team spirit, Kohli pointed out. "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", he said.

Buttler carried stunning IPL form, which saw him hit five consecutive half-centuries for his franchise, into England's global season, nailing his Test recall then starring against Australia in the ODI series.

And while Eoin Morgan suggested that nothing is set in stone with regard to the batting order, claiming he remained "open-minded" about the combinations, he is unlikely to shift Buttler from an opening berth. KL Rahul, Suresh Raina, Manish Pandey, Dinesh Karthik and Kedar Jadhav are the contenders. Their captain, Eoin Morgan, said: "I'm not sure I have the answer" when asked if there is a bigger challenge in world cricket. I don't think it is something. on [in] hindsight when I look at it now I don't think it would've made too much of a difference to my preparation.
