When England will take on India tomorrow i.e. on 27th February 2011 World Cup, they are most likely to face a kind of acid test in order to determine how much they have actually improved in the one day format matches. As per some predictions, India will be on the heavier side. On the other hand, England’s error count need to be lower against the Indian team than it actually was when they played against Netherlands as the players now will be alert from the very beginning and will be aware of the consequences if they commit any mistake.
England will be satisfied if the surface is low and slow as the one where South Africa badly beat Australia. However if it turns like it did when Australia lost to India, they might have to struggle against the Indian spinners.
Likely India team: Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh, MS Dhoni, Yusuf Pathan, Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan, Munaf Patel, Ashish Nehra/R Ashwin
Likely England team: Andrew Strauss, Kevin Pietersen, Jonathan Trott, Ian Bell, Paul Collingwood. Matt Prior, Ravi Bopara/Michael Yardy, Tim Bresnan, Stuart Broad, Graeme Swann, James Anderson
