Eoin Morgan hails "complete" England as tourists eclipse India in Twenty20 opener

Kohli opened the innings in the first T20I against England along with KL Rahul

Ali justified his captain's decision of bowling first as he struck with his opening ball to send back opposition skipper Virat Kohli for 29.

Kohli, the captain, had no hesitation in admitting it as well. As I mentioned, it is more about providing balance to the side.

They have a deep batting line up and batsmen capable of pulling off things easily for their side. "Everybody within the unit produced exactly what we talked [about], we executed our plans", Morgan said.

Mills, who ended with figures of 1-27 in his second game for England as they restricted India to 147 runs, believes that his future now lies in the T20 format but is unwilling to get too carried away. Later, Pervez Rasool, who made his T20I debut on Thursday, sent Morgan back to hand India some hope.

Jos Buttler and Sam Billings already have existing deals in place while a host of others, including Eoin Morgan, Ben Stokes, Jason Roy, Chris Woakes and Moeen Ali are heading into the draft on February 4.

"We definitely want to play more expressive cricket, play more positively than in the past and not worry about the result much", he said.

The proposal wouldn't fully repeal the law and would push numerous toughest decisions about coverage to the states. Paul's plan would provide a tax credit of up to $5,000 per person to use as part of a Health Savings Account.

But skipper Kohli, who has destroyed the tourists' attack so far this winter, sneered: "Ninety miles an hour is no problem".

"Today England performed the way we know they can".

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. Even the intensity of the hosts was visibly less than their English counterparts. England will also come on a mental high note after having won the last ODI played at Eden Garden stadium in Kolkata on 22 January. Feel free to watch England v India 2017 cricket live score on this page. From T20s to ODIs and then Tests, it has to be a gradual progress, giving them ample confidence on the way.

Of course, the game is also important for experienced player like Suresh Raina and Yuvraj Singh and veteran left-arm seamer Ashish Nehra.

Billings, one of the game's most exciting talents, played the shot of the night when he walked across his stumps and flicked seamer Jasprit Bumrah over fine leg for six. While England have nearly the same squad they had for the ODIs, they are a far more stronger unit when it comes to the shortest format of the game.

Contrary to his reputation of being an aggressive batsman in the death overs, the former India captain couldn't explode the way team and fans wanted him to.
