In the 11 T20I matches played, England have won 6 while India could manage 5 out of those 6 games.

No wonder India are well placed to face a formidable England side in the three-match T20I series, the first of which is in Manchester on Tuesday.

The first T20I between England and India will be played from 5:30 pm BST, 10 pm IST.

While Indian skipper Virat Kohli now at the the fourth spot in the list of highest run scorer's in T20I cricket.

The injury to Jasprit Bumrah has depleted India's bowling strength to a great extent. No one can guarantee results, but just wanting to win every session and every ball that we play, if we can carry that on for the length of the tour, I will be really proud as a captain and we will be really proud of ourselves as a team.

"The way we play our cricket, the mindset and the attitude will be what we would like to take away from this series", the Indian captain said in his first press conference in England.

Jos Buttler's stunning form continued though, the opener hitting 69 from 46 balls as the wickets fell around him.

Samsung was ordered to pay $1.05 billion in damages by jurors in 2012, which was reduced on appeal to $930 million. Neither Samsung nor Apple clarified what the terms of the settlement were.

Buttler carried stunning IPL form, which saw him hit five consecutive half-centuries for his franchise, into England's global season, nailing his Test recall then starring against Australia in the ODI series.

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. KL Rahul, Suresh Raina, Manish Pandey, Dinesh Karthik and Kedar Jadhav are the contenders. In T20 cricket, you have to be at your absolute best because the game is so short and you don't have second chances. Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow got them off to sensational starts against Australia in the ODI series.

In the bowling department, Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid have been doing a great job and the two picked 12 wickets apiece in the ODIs against Australia. While Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan are most likely to open the innings, India will also like to accommodate KL Rahul somewhere in the middle. While Jordan and Plunkett looked impressive against Australia, picking three and two wickets respectively, Willey was slightly more economical and had a wicket to show for his efforts. England has several stars in their squad and so does India.

Buttler is in the form of his life and having played successfully in the IPL, he does know what the Indian bowlers have to offer.

Of course, one defeat does not suddenly make England a bad side but there were clearly areas where they were exposed in Manchester.

There was little fortunate from that point though, as he put on a staggering display of power hitting, leaving the equally destructive Rohit Sharma just to work singles and let Rahul get on with it.
