Sky Sports – Eoin Morgan says England will be “exposed to a different challenge” against India – and that they won’t be afraid to tinker with their batting order during the three-match T20I series.

Summary

  • Speaking ahead of Tuesday’s first T20I at Old Trafford – which you can watch on live Sky Sports Cricket and Main Event from 5pm – England skipper Morgan backed his side to build on their success against Australia.
  • In-form Jos Buttler smashed England’s fastest T20I fifty, from 22 balls, at Edgbaston on Wednesday after being promoted to opener – but Morgan insists his side will continue to be flexible as they look ahead to the World T20 in Australia in 2020.
  • “There generally is a different challenge when you play against subcontinental teams,” said Morgan, whose side will also play India in T20s at Cardiff on Friday and Bristol on Sunday.
  • India captain Kohli believes his team have the nous to stop the England juggernaut and says they will play “positive and hard cricket” to try and take down Morgan’s side.
  • Watch the first Twenty20 international between England and India, at Old Trafford, live from 5pm on Tuesday on Sky Sports Cricket (channel 404) and Sky Sports Main Event (channel 401).
