Updated News of India (IND) -
- India added Krunal Pandya & Deepak Chahar in the place of injured J Bumrah and W Sundar for T20s.
- Indian captain Virat Kohli announced after the first T20I against Ireland that they will experiment with the middle order a lot
- The Indian think-tank will have some selection headaches ahead of the two T20I series.
- Their middle-order options include Lokesh Rahul, Suresh Raina, Manish Pandey and Dinesh Karthik and it might come to a toss-up between these four for two spots.
- Probably Umesh Yadav will open the pace attack with Bhuvi in the absence of J Bumrah.
- Yuzvendra Chahal & Kuldeep Yadav will handle the spin attack. Both are in very good forms. But traditionally this pitch helps fast bowlers more.
- Probably, Shikhar Dhawan & Rohit Sharma will open for IND.
- KL Rahul almost cemented his place.
Updated News of England (ENG) -

Comparison of Teams-In WK Jos Buttler is the best option. MS Dhoni is also a very good option.
