Both teams have lost their opening games of triangular series against Australia. Australians beat England comfortably in the first match of series whereas they worked hard to defeat India in previous match. This is going to be crucial match for both sides in terms of the progress in the final of series. Currently India is at the second position in points table of tri-series.
England batting line-up was failed totally against Australia except Captain Eoin Morgan who scored brilliant century. Ian Bell, Joe Root, Moeen Ali need to bat well in these Australian conditions. James Anderson will make comeback in England’s playing XI against India as he was injured. English side is happy on his returning to the team. On his comeback in the team Root mentioned that he will be our key bowler in tomorrow’s game.
Joe Root said, “He’s got masses of experience, he’s a big part of the dressing room, and can only strengthen our squad. He’ll swing it. He’s bowled at the death a lot, he’s got a lot of skills, and in these conditions, on this wicket, he’ll be hard to come up against.”
Indian cricket team fought well in the previous game against Australia but couldn’t win. Rohit and Raina were the stars in Indian innings but all other batsmen were failed. Shikhar Dhawan has been failing to provide good starts since he arrived in Australia. So he needs to bat well to get in form before the world cup begins. Captain Dhoni has got belief in Dhawan and he thinks Dhawan will get form as soon as possible.
MS Dhoni said, “I am not sure about the statistics but I have felt that the openers have been doing a good job. They did well in the Champions Trophy. There will be the odd series here and there where when you are playing the best bowlers in the world in helpful conditions, we will lose the odd wicket. But overall I am quite happy with their performance.”
Bowlers did well in previous match and team India is expecting that bowlers will do well in tomorrow’s match. Axar Patel and Ashwin will be the key bowlers in Indian bowling attack as English batsmen look un-comfortable against spinners.
