Having overcome England in the absorbing T20 series, India now move into the ODIs series high on confidence.
It won’t be an easy task though as England are a totally different side in ODIs, in fact the number one team in the format.
India have been in supreme form so far with Rohit Sharma returning to form with a blistering knock. Virat Kohli and Lokesh Rahul have also been among the runs. Shikhar Dhawan form is possibly the only worry in the batting. In the bowling, the wrist-spin duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal will be key. If fit, Bhuvneshwar Kumar should join Umesh Yadav.
England will not read too much into the T20s. Instead, they would focus on their ODI success. There are in an interesting dilemma. With Ben Stokes fit, and the top and middle-order all but decided, it will be a toss up between Alex Hales and him for the one remaining spot. Moeen Ali should also be back after missing out on a couple of T20s.
