England side promoted batsman-wicketkeeper Jos Buttler as an opener, helping his side to come out during crucial moments.

"It (the IPL) is going to make relations between the two teams even better".

The visitors will play three T20 matches, three One-day Internationals and five Tests against England, starting with a 20-over clash in Manchester on Tuesday (tomorrow).Pandya will replace Washington Sundar for the T20 match and Patel will step in for Jasprit Bumrah in the ODI, the Board of Control for Cricket in India said. I think this season has broken that barrier to a great extent.

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. Kohli, though, wasn't surprised with Buttler's highly impressive showing. "This next phase is going to be really important to figure all those things out and have the best balance that we need going into that big tournament, but that's quite far away but we have a vision for it". Because it's not such a long batting innings, you can afford to do that. The opposition has to get in. But England were already blessed with top order players before the move and Buttler's elevation has simply added to the number of batsmen who would, ideally, open the innings. However from a relatively comfortable 95 for 1 in the 12th over, Kuldeep removed rival skipper Eoin Morgan (7), Jonny Bairstow (0) and Joe Root (0) in the 14th over, which prevented England from posting a competitive total on a placid track.

"I am looking forward for a good time". From that point of view, we thought why can't we do it.why can't we go over and play in those conditions and get to know how the pitches work and all that.

Here we predicted a playing XI of the Indian team for the first T20I against England. "I hear people are keen to play and they should". 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. "We will play fearless cricket and literally we have nothing to lose". "In T20 cricket, you don't have second chances but we are pretty confident as a side".

Without delving too deep into the issue Kohli said one area India would be keen to fix is the middle order in ODIs.
