Bring on England, says Virat Kohli after Ireland rout

DUBLIN: Virat Kohli is happy that India are well prepared to take on in-form England when their much-awaited series starts on Tuesday with the first of three Twenty20 Internationals.

India completed the formality of a 2-0 win in Ireland on Friday with their biggest ever T20 victory, by 143 runs.

Although they were two one-sided games, after scoring over 200 in both, the India captain says they were ideal preparation.

“We wanted to go into the (England) series with all the guys having a hit and all the bowlers making a contribution so, I´m happy with the batting performances in both innings,” said Kohli.

“Everyone is batting so well, but it´s a good problem to have. Anyone who has been given a chance has grabbed it with both hands and that´s something that´s good for any side and our bench strength is shown in these type of games.

“It´s a great phase that India cricket is going through and I´m happy to see all these young guys taking their chances.”
