On the other side, India last played a limited overs tournament in England when they featured in the ICC Champions Trophy earlier this year. Virat Kohli-led Indian team had a decent run in the tournament where they registered a berth in the final but lost to arch rivals Pakistan and failed to defend the title.
Presently, England are playing a three-Test series against West Indies that is squared at 1-1 with one match remaining. On the other side, Kohli’s men are on a tour of Sri Lanka.
The Men in Blue have already clinched the Test and ODI series, 3-0 and 5-0 respectively and will play the only T20I on Wednesday.
