Lokesh Rahul smashed 101 off 54 balls as India brought England back down to earth with an eight-wicket victory in the first of three Twenty20 cricket matches on Tuesday (Wednesday NZ time).

England's spinners tormented Australia so the hosts will be concerned by the ease with which India's middle order largely played them - although Rashid finished with respectable figures of 1-25, Moeen Ali conceded 37 off just 14 balls.

India present a much stiffer test than a weakened Australia. The Men in Blue has played some exceptional cricket off late and will; go into the series as favourites. "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".

For now, there's no talk of the need for India to adjust to unforgiving conditions or for England to pile on the misery with "home advantage". "If we can carry that for the length of the tour, I will be really proud as a captain and we will be really proud of ourselves as a team".

Eight of the team likely to face Chahal again at Old Trafford today were in the one bamboozled by him in the T20 at Bangalore past year.

Belgium look to live up to hype against Japan
That was the first major tournament for many of us, knockout matches have a lot to do with experience and can be complicated. Belgium's second string beat England's second string in a game that no one was entirely sure they wanted to win.

On the personal front, Kohli did not have a great time in England four years ago but he has not set a target for himself.

"This season has broken that barrier to a great extent and I think it will happen in future as well".

"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". Obviously you want to perform as an individual.

"For me, [this] is just a set of worldwide games in another country". So much so that Kohli reckoned the missed County stint with Surrey was hardly worth fretting over.

"Looking at the weather (very hot), no, not at all". I mean it is as dry as I've seen it ever.

Gun rights or restrictions were the most-cited issue, followed by health care, then civil rights. Collins wasted no time following Kennedy's announcement to reiterate that she believes Roe v.

"Playing against a good team in their conditions and at their home, to get the opportunity to be able to beat them in their home conditions, it is a point of excitement for us and not pressure", Kohli said. Especially I spoke to [Cheteshwar] Pujara, and Ishant [Sharma] as well, who've been here before. They could do with picking his wrong' un as well which is easier said than done.

Keeping the 2019 World Cup in mind, Kohli said India will keep experimenting on the tour.

Going by current form, both sides are at par on paper, with India having won 15 of their last 20 T20 Internationals, including the Nidahas Trophy in Sri Lanka and the bilateral away series against South Africa.

The partnership was broken in the next over, Roy (30) dragging onto his stumps trying to pull Umesh and as he walked off, England's momentum went with him as Alex Hales struggled for any kind of fluency and Buttler was starved of the strike.
