On a high after an impressive Twenty20 series win, an upbeat India will eye another dominant performance against hosts England in a three-match One Day International (ODI) series, which can be termed as a "dry run" ahead of the ICC Cup in 2015. The Men-in-Blue and the English team have faced each other in an ODI series in India past year when the hosts were victorious by 2-1.
The series may also enable Indian team management to mix and match the various combinations, keeping World Cup in mind. However, England, the top ranked ODI team in world cricket, come into the series having crushed a below-par Australia 6-0 in their last bilateral engagement. The match will be played at the same ground where England scripted a world record in ODI history after putting 481/6 on board against Australia recently.
India: Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, MS Dhoni (wk), Dinesh Karthik, Suresh Raina, Hardik Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Shreyas Iyer, Siddarth Kaul, Axar Patel, Umesh Yadav, Shardul Thakur, Bhuvneshwar Kumar. England have been one of the finest 50 over sides in recent times and India will have their task cut against a batting line-up comprising Jos Buttler, Jason Roy, Alex Hales, Jonny Bairstow and Eoin Morgan with Ben Stokes as all-rounder makes the English side a formidable team.
