England captain Eoin Morgan ready for India challenge

And we certainly want to play positive and hard-fought cricket.

At the very venue, Buttler hit a valiant and unbeaten 110 to help England complete the ODI series whitewash. It's going to be an exciting series for sure, we believe that we have the side to put up a great fight. "Because when they came to India last time, we won the series and the trophy is with us, and now they are on home soil and they need to play well to win it back". Expect both teams, therefore, to play two spinners.

India A squad for four-day matches: Karun Nair (captain), R Samarth, Mayank Agarwal, Abhimanyu Easwaran, Prithvi Shaw, Hanuma Vihari, Ankit Bawne, Vijay Shankar, KS Bharat (wicket-keeper), Jayant Yadav, Shahbaz Nadeem, Ankit Rajpoot, Mohammed Siraj, Navdeep Saini, Rajneesh Gurbani, Rishabh Pant.

Umesh Yadav feels two new balls system has killed reverse swing in ODIs.

The injury to Jasprit Bumrah has depleted India's bowling strength to a great extent.

Nonetheless, Umesh Yadav, who impressed in IPL 2018 with raw pace, will open the bowling alongside the impressive Bhuvneshwar Kumar. He performed admirably in the Indian Premier League and finished as the leading wicket-taker for the Royal Challengers Bangalore. They have been quite spectacular in the a year ago and is undoubtedly the spin bowling duo to look out for in the series and beyond. Their batting line-up looks solid and has the ability to turn any match on its head.

They had started at a decent lick too, with Jason Roy opening up with a frenetic 30 from 20 balls, only for his demise - chopping on to the stumps via the pull shot that had met fresh air a couple of times previously - to bring Alex Hales to the crease for what proved a torturous 18-ball eight that gummed up the works. Adil Rashid will be the man to look out for.

The death bowler came for the practice the next day, but did not train during the session.

"We expect England to come hard at us".

Nonetheless, they are expected to face a stiff test against England, who are high on confidence after whitewashing world champions Australia in a five-match ODI series and a one-off T20I to kickoff the English summer in style. "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 not pressure".

Kuldeep Yadav (11.2) and Yuzvendra Chahal (13.0) have the best and third-best strike rates among all spinners who have bowled in ten or more T20I innings.

India were so comfortable that when Rohit Sharma fell for 32, picking out Eoin Morgan at cover off Rashid, Rahul and Kohli could just knock around singles in a sedate conclusion. If you have a target in mind or in front of you, then you play accordingly.
