India vs England 1st T20I With Rain on Cards Will the Game be A Sacrificial of First T20I's Entertainment

Skipper Eoin Morgan and batting mainstay Joe Root engineered England's easy chase to secure their seven-wicket victory against India in the first Twenty20 global on Thursday.

England completly outclassed the Indians in every department of the game at Green Park to take a significant 1-0 lead in the three-match series.

Virat Kohli credited England's bowlers for their variety and discipline shown in containing his side to a modest total. But the ICC rankings hardly do any justice to the talented and balanced T20I side that England is at this moment. "Everyone is included in the squad is because we feel that they can contribute". I think we have played some really good cricket this season and deserve to enjoy these T20s.

"England got an explosive start at the top". First restricting hosts to a paltry 147 in 20 overs, the visitors then took on the offensive against Indian bowlers while chasing.

The only England player who might not feel entirely thrilled by his night's work was Adil Rashid. "With the ball we kept taking wickets, put them under pressure and not let them have partnerships", Root said. "If we had bowled better, we could have made a good fight of the total we had on the board, but about 170-175 would have been a more competitive total, I wouldn't say a match-winning one still because the ball was coming on nicely". Kohli accepted his team has to learn to respond when the opposition is dominating you.

England's excution of plan was much better than India's and even their playing combination looked more settled.

India captain Virat Kohli has become well used to toasting wins over England in recent months but was happy to accept the tourists as worthy winners on this occasion.

Opening the innings with Lokesh Rahul, home captain Virat Kohli made 29 but with no width to play with the Indian batsmen were straitjacketed at the crease.

Getting hit for just one six speaks volumes about their preparation as a bowling unit. This is the first match wherein Kohli will captain the Indian cricket team in a T20I match and quite obviously, will seek a fruitful start to his new journey.

India's trump card has to be the form of their skipper.

Also, no middle-order batsman showed any positive intent or aggression against English bowlers. Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya and Ashish Nehra will be the names who will be interesting to watch. The teams will meet for the first of a three game series on Thursday at 4:30 p.m. local time (11 a.m. GMT/6 a.m. ET) from Kanpur.
