I heard lot of people are keen to go and play and they should. The bulk of the 23,000 to pitch up were cheering for Virat Kohli's newly-arrived side, who repaid the cacophonous support by chasing down 160 for a comfortable eight-wicket win and a significant statement from this summer's marquee tourists.
Now that they are relaxed in the mind, Kohli says India are more than ready for the England tour which comprise three T20s, an equal number of ODIs followed by a five-Test series that begins in August and will run into mid-September. The weather is expected to remain pleasant with no signs of rain and humidity of about 40%. Following the T20I series, the two sides will take on each other in a three-match ODI series as well.
"We expect England to come hard at us but we certainly want to play positive and hard-fought cricket, so it's going to be an exciting series for sure", said Kohli. Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni are certain to feature in the XI and it'll be among Manish Pandey, Dinesh Karthik, Suresh Raina, and KL Rahul that they'll be choosing any 2.
He had a sensational IPL as a wicket-taker in the Powerplay overs, and with Jasprit Bumrah out injured, there's no better time than now for Umesh Yadav to stake a claim to be part of India's first-choice T20 attack.

Besides tonight's defeat against Russian Federation , they had lost to Belgium in 1986 and South Korea in 2002, both in the quarterfinals.

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. It is pleasurable to beat a good team in their own conditions. Jos Buttler has been in some ominous form and will look to stamp his authority on the Indians.
India are coming into the series with two facile victories over Ireland - by 72 and 143 runs respectively but Kohli knows too well that England will be a different proposition. England didn't require his services with the bat but we've witnessed how unsafe he can be on his day.
The bowling department of England also looks strong.
Did Cavs troll Kyrie Irving in revealing Collin Sexton's number?
He's a young guy", said head coach Tyronn Lue. "I think (Knox) is a guy who's really helped him in this pre-draft process. Reports say Collin Sexton won the Cavs' management over with his character. "Go watch the game".
Virat Kohli will be the player to watch out for as he did not have an ideal outing in Ireland and will be itching to get some runs under his belt. The idea of having guys go up and down the order [in Ireland] was to give everyone a go - Guys who had scored in the first game and the guys who needed game time in the second.
"The All-India Senior Selection Committee has named Krunal Pandya as Washington Sundar's replacement in India's T20I side and Axar Patel in the ODI side for the upcoming limited-overs series against England", BCCI acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary said in a statement.
India are in town, and that usually means packed stadiums anywhere in the world, but Old Trafford on Tuesday will be some way short of a full house.
