The 25-year-old is also a part of the India A team, which is now in England playing tri-series with England Lions and West Indies.

India were dealt a double injury blow ahead of their limited-overs clashes against England with Washington Sundar joining Jasprit Bumrah on the sidelines.

About the takeaways from a long England tour, Kohli said: "The focus obviously will be on the way we play our cricket and the attitude we carry on throughout the tour".

In the second, there were three golden ducks and only one double-figure score between eight batsmen after Buttler (69) and Roy had shared a 50 opening stand.

India probable XI: Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Suresh Raina, KL Rahul, MS Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umesh Yadav.

England, meanwhile, made a few strategic changes by putting assistant coach Paul Farbrace in charge of the T20 team for the Australia and India series, while head coach Trevor Bayliss simultaneously took to domestic cricket scouting.

Maintaining such high, competitive spirit over such an extended period of time will never be easy especially if things do not go as India intend.

Bumrah's replacement for the upcoming T20 series has been confirmed as Deepak Chahar, who took part in the recent Indian Premier League for franchise Sunrisers Hyderabad. Therein, they did endure a torrid time in the tri-series against the latter two sides (earlier in March), losing three out of four games.

Eoin Morgan (7) holed out to the first ball and after Buttler took a single, Jonny Bairstow (0) and Joe Root (0) were both completely flummoxed as they played forward, over-balanced and were stumped, Bairstow beaten past the outside edge and Root through the gate. The unavailability of the death overs specialist means India will be going into the series with an attack that have little or no experience playing in England and in English conditions. England didn't require his services with the bat but we've witnessed how risky he can be on his day.

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

The right-hander then picked the leg-spinner Adil Rashid for a boundary to third man to get to his half century off just 27 balls, before launching Liam Plunkett for two sixes and as many fours to milk 20 runs from the paceman.

In the bowling department, it was magical Kuldeep who wrecked the English havoc in England's middle-order. If they don't, India's spinners could have a field day in this series.

To start off the series, the Indian team management is to go in for set combinations.

Catch all the action from the 1st T20I of India's Tour of England from Old Trafford in Manchester, on Tuesday 3rd July, 10:00 PM IST, 4:30 PM GMT.
