Last but not the least, two England teams will be playing at the same time on Tuesday evening with the football team's pre-quarterfinal match against Colombia in Russian Federation going on simultaneously.

Virat Kohli intends to put team before self during the two-month tour of England that begins in Manchester on Tuesday evening despite the intrigue that surrounds how the India captain will address one of the few gaps in an otherwise stellar CV.

I think this IPL season has broken the barrier to a great extent between the sides - Kohli. "I hear people are keen to play and they should". It is a great time to play cricket there.

Among those set to provide the hosts with plenty more to ponder is leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal - who took a career-best six for 25 as England suffered an alarming collapse of eight wickets for eight runs to lose by 75 the last time they ran into him.

"I am not surprised with the way Jos has played", he said. "We have also the Big Bash to go to - some of our guys might go down there and absolutely tear it up so you have to be open-minded". "I don't think it will be a distraction, the guys are passionate about it but will be focussed on the game", he signed off.

"There was never that familiarity or warmth between the two teams before, purely because we didn't know the guys enough", said Kohli, who captained Moeen Ali and Chris Woakes at Royal Challengers Bangalore.

"I hope it works for us", said Morgan.

"We can be as adaptable as we can going forward with one eye on Australia World Cup [in 2020]". The opposition has to get in. "Hopefully, we will be able to deal with it", Morgan said on Monday.

European Union gives stark warning to USA over auto tariffs
The EU has imposed retaliatory tariffs on goods worth €2.8 billion ($3.27 billion), primarily on US-built motorcycles. The letter also said any auto tariffs would "damage further the reputation" of the U.S. , according to the FT.

Top French criminal Redoine Faid escapes prison by helicopter
Before that incident, Faid had been released from prison after convincing the parole board that he renounced his criminal past. In his 2013 jailbreak, he briefly took four guards hostage with a pistol before escaping in a waiting getaway vehicle .

"Surprisingly or funnily, I don't think from fans' or outside point of view".

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 wicket at Old Trafford showed signs of favouring the bowlers in the ODI between England and Australia with Buttler needing to play a spectacular knock to take the English side home, but things should be different when it comes to the slam-bang format of the game and with the weather expected to remain clear, it could be a batting paradise on offer with runs being scored at will.

A neck injury forced Kohli to pull out of his hyped county stint ahead of the tour but the star batsman now feels he did not miss much. I am really happy to see him at the highest level. I especially spoke to (Cheteshwar) Pujara and Ishant (Sharma), who have been here.

Needless to say, he will be India's greatest threat, albeit the likes of Roy and Alex Hales also add a lot of firepower to the English top-order. It is a great time to play cricket there. If you have a target in mind or a target in front of you, then you play according to that.

Here we predicted a playing XI of the Indian team for the first T20I against England.

With the major tournament away, it gives you an opportunity to test your bench strength, try out fringe players - Kohli.
