India, as expected, won the first T20 fairly comfortably in the end, although it wasn't the worst performance in the England.
It's always hard, coming off the back of what was a monumental effort in the Test series, to raise yourself for a short one-day series and facing India is daunting enough in itself.
While England played well in patches, the consistency wasn't there; you have to expect that with a young side.
It's a bit worrying that big players are being rested from these important series' - you can understand managing workloads, but administrators need to be careful. I was amazed at how small the crowd was for the first game - that's not a trend the game needs to encourage.
Looking at the second T20, and it's impossible to look beyond India even at short odds of [1.57]. They are simply too strong for this inexperienced England side.
