India outgunned by Ali and Morgan in 1st T20I

In fact it was not until Sunday that England finally squeaked out a 5-run win in the final ODI - one that was meaningless after India had taken the first two matches and won the series. Losing four wickets in the middle stages of the innings and not scoring too many runs in the middle overs perhaps cost Team India.

"You then can play an extra batsman in the middle-order, a player like Suresh Raina gets more unsafe at No.3, so when Rohit is not around as an opener, I can anytime step up because it provides more balance. Everybody within the unit produced exactly what we talked [about], we executed our plans", Morgan said. "My opening gives more balance to the team", Kohli said after India's crushing defeat in the opening T20 worldwide, here.

While Mills' status as a T20 freelancer means he can play the whole competition, those centrally contracted by the England and Wales Cricket Board are only available for limited windows - a factor the home captain feels will count against them at next month's auction. The India skipper, who was conferred with the prestigious Padma Shri, opened the innings along with KL Rahul. "It's up to us seniors to take the load off them".

India were coming after a ODI series win against England, but their performance in the first T20 was disappointing.

Now that we see Murali Vijay, R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja doing well for the team, we must give Dhoni credit for their success and also trust Virat Kohli over the team selection. And I thought we handled that pretty well. They (England bowlers) showed character.

Defending the target, Yuzvendra Chahal (2/27) shone with the ball for India and Kohli was full of praise for the young leg-spinner.

Mills is possibly the fastest bowler in England and sent shock waves around the county circuit when he rattled West Indian superstar Chris Gayle with a 93mph delivery last summer. The vision has to be that, you have to understand that even me or anyone can't play forever, so you need to understand who are the guys who are going to slowly blend in and take Indian cricket forward. "There were some loose shots from us as well - it was a combination of the two". When the players get experience and become confident, opening partnerships give you a lot of benefit.
