Summary

  • LONDON: India will provide far stiffer opposition for England than Australia did when it was whitewashed 5-0 in a one-day series then thrashed in a Twenty20 match, Indian captain Virat Kohli said Monday.
  • Kohli said his squad was expecting a tough battle against England in their upcoming three-match T20 series, which begins at Old Trafford on Tuesday, as well as in five Tests and three ODIs that will keep them in England until September.
  • “We expect England to come hard at us, and we certainly want to play some positive and hard-fought cricket,” said Kohli.
  • His England counterpart Eoin Morgan said regardless of Australia’s side being under-strength, his side had come out of it with many positives to take into the India series.
