India squad for England T20Is:Virat Kohli (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Suresh Raina, Manish Pandey, MS Dhoni (wk), Dinesh Karthik, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Washington Sundar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Siddhart Kaul, Umesh Yadav.

Virat Kohli has been omitted from the solitary test against Afghanistan, with the captain set to take heed of his commitments in the English county for the month of June. At night there is no spin, there is moisture and bit more movement.

And that Rohit will not be in the red-ball plans for the England tour, especially given that Karun Nair - his replacement - is also the captain for the India A side that will play four-day matches in England and thus seems a better bet to have on the Test team.
