In-form India will look to seal the T20I series when they take on England in the second game at Edgbaston, Birmingham on Saturday.
Star India batter Virat Kohli would be desperate to come out of his prolonged lean patch when he makes his T20 return after five months.
Virat Kohli returns
Kohli, who last played a T20l in February, has featured in only two games since India's underwhelming campaign in the T20 World Cup in October-November when he was captain of the national side.
The only T20 cricket he played since then was in the IPL but there too he was far from his best.
Kohli and other seniors are getting frequent breaks as part of the team's rest and rotate policy giving an opportunity to fringe players like Deepak Hooda, who will be difficult to drop on Saturday after the performances he has come up with.
Besides Kohli, Rishabh Pant, Jasprit Bumrah, Ravindra Jadeja and Shreyas Iyer have also joined the T20 squad following a break after the fifth Test .
Hardik Pandya had a game to remember with both and ball and his presence is surely a big boost to the side in a World Cup year.
Focus on fielding
Rohit will also want to see a marked improvement in team's fielding, especially catching after an ordinary show on Thursday.
England, who were blown away by the visitors at Southampton, will back themselves to make a strong comeback.
