Chasing 160, India quickly overcame the early loss of opener Shikhar Dhawan (4) as the right-handed duo of Rahul and Rohit helped the visitors race to 50 in the first five overs.

Following an easy 2-0 drubbing of Ireland in the just concluded two-match T20I series in Dublin, Team India is on a big mission as it faces off against the mighty English side, which too has been in a phenomenal form of late.

Jonny Bairstow and then Joe Root were both stumped for golden ducks off Kuldeep googlies as the spinner took three wickets in his third over.

In the second ODI of the five-match series against Australia in 2017, Kuldeep Yadav became only the third Indian bowler to take an ODI hat-trick, after Kapil Dev and Chetan Sharma.

"Kuldeep's one over really turned the game for us and it was just wonderful to watch", Kohli said.

It's his length which tests the batsmen, enticing them with flight and the ability to turn and dip the ball.

Rohit's departure brought in skipper Virat Kohli (20 not out off 22 balls), who was seven shy of becoming the fourth batsman to notch 2000 T20I runs. Jos Buttler was batting well against me.

"Obviously they are quality batsmen and it's a good feeling when you take two wickets on the trot".

"Kuldeep is a very good bowler", said Morgan.

Nicoll told Entertainment Tonight that she expected Meghan to eventually follow the lead of her sister-in-law Kate Middleton and recycle some of her dresses and accessories.


The second T20I will be played in Cardiff on Friday, and Kuldeep warned that a repeat performance is not a surety although he will strive for that.

India's fans were on their feet waving their flags on a sun-drenched evening in Manchester when England skipper Eoin Morgan (7) skied a delivery from Yadav and into the hands of India counterpart Kohli at deep midwicket. Kuldeep took three wickets in four balls and deceived us.

Chinaman Kuldeep Yadav's magical spell of wrist spin was complemented by K L Rahul's dazzling strokeplay as India started their tour of England on a resounding note, winning the opening T20 worldwide by eight wickets here on Tuesday evening.

"We didn't get enough runs and were probably 30-40 runs short".

England made a typically quick start to their innings, Jason Roy taking 16 from the first two overs before Buttler got off the mark by scooping an 87mph delivery from Umesh Yadav over the 'keeper's head for head. But dry conditions in the region enabled purchase from the pitches, and the wrist-spinner finished with 17 wickets in six ODIs.

Who knows, we might see them doing commentary in the tournament! "I always try to do what I can do", he said, while talking about the innings-changing 14th over when he ripped out the guts of the England line-up with three wickets in four balls.

Kohli ended the game with a six as India completed the victory with 10 balls to spare. Rahul continued his glorious run with the bat, dominating the partnership with Rohit, who uncharacteristically played the ideal second fiddle to the Karnataka youngster.

Buttler, however continued tormenting the Indians with a 46-ball knock laced with eight fours and a couple of sixes before becoming Kuldeep's fifth victim, thanks to a brilliant catch by Kohli after Rahul dropped him one ball earlier.
