#1. English summer is not very different from Indian summer
The climatic conditions that India have had to experience so far have been quite similar to what they are used experiencing in India. The late England summer has been quite hot and humid because of which the Indian team has not had to worry about adjusting to the conditions.
The wickets have been quite hard and batting friendly, just like the Indian wickets, which has resulted in increasing the importance of spinners. Spinners enjoy bowling on tracks like these and India being used to such conditions and wickets, gives them the edge over England.
Kuldeep Yadav had also mentioned that he was feeling like he was playing in India after his emphatic performance of 5 for 24 runs in the first T20I.
