Tweeting about the same, BCCI wrote: “🚨 UPDATE: Virat Kohli and Arshdeep Singh were not considered for selection for the first ODI against England. Virat has a mild groin strain while Arshdeep has a right abdominal strain. The BCCI Medical Team is monitoring them. #TeamIndia | #ENGvIND”.

Arshdeep Singh in his first international match managed to display all the skills that he possesses. He swung the ball early in the innings and in the end overs he bowled Yorkers at will and also displayed the variety of slower balls at his disposal. There were calls for him to play in the remainder of the T20 matches but he wasn’t considered. Arshdeep broke his way through into the Indian team after performing well for Punjab Kings in back-to-back IPLs.
