IND vs ENG Team Previews

India

India has been in scintillating form of late and is currently the top-ranked team across all 3 formats of the game. The recent victories in the Asia Cup and the home series against Australia are likely to give a big boost to the team’s morale.

There were quite a few eyebrows raised when the 15-member squad saw the omission of some quality players. However, the off-field controversies have had no effect on the team’s on-field performance. The 2 warm-up matches including this one will give the selectors one last opportunity to fine-tune the squad.

India’s batting has been in superlative form. The likes of Shubhman Gill, Rohit Sharma, and Virat Kohli are peaking in form just at the right time and will look to give the team a good start. KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer have recovered from their injuries well and are solid performers in the middle order.

With Axar Patel still recovering from a niggle, we might see Ravichandran Ashwin or Washington Sundar take his spot. (Update: R Ashwin has replaced Axar Patel in the squad).

Coming to the pace attack, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, and Mohammed Siraj have all bowled well and should be looking to take some quick wickets with the new ball. Kuldeep Yadav will lead the spin attack and will have the support of Ravindra Jadeja at the other end. 

A warm-up match is not about winning, even though all teams would like to win. It is more about getting the players ready and testing the team balance.

England

Just like their opponents, England are coming into this contest on the back of some excellent performances. They have won consecutive series against Bangladesh, New Zealand, and Ireland and will be feeling pretty confident when they take the field.

England has one of the most explosive batting line-ups in this tournament and will rely on that to help put up big totals. The ultra-aggressive approach has worked well for the team and there are no signs that the team will go slow on the opposition’s bowling.

Johnny Bairstow is likely to open the batting here alongside Dawid Malan, while the likes of Joe Root and Harry Brook follow them lower down. Ben Stokes, who was one of the key architects of England’s maiden World Cup title during the last edition is in excellent batting form since coming out of retirement.

England also has some quality all-rounders in the form of Moeen Ali, David Willey, and Sam Curran who can contribute to all departments.

The bowling is a bit of a weakness for England especially as they miss out on Jofra Archer due to injury. The pace attack, consisting of Gus Atkinson, Mark Wood, and Reece Topley has limited experience of bowling in Indian conditions and may struggle against the quality batting of India.

England’s lone specialist spinner, Adil Rashid, isn’t a 100% fit, which gives the team very little room to maneuver. 

This warm-up match is a lot more important for England as it would like to get acclamitized to the conditions early. <br />

Pitch and Conditions

The pitch at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium is a batting paradise and we can expect plenty of runs to be scored. While the stadium has hosted just 2 ODIs to date, all 4 innings played have seen over 300 runs being scored. The team batting first will look to get over 350 runs to give the bowlers a good chance to defend. There is very little help for the bowlers and they will need to be accurate with their line and length.

The weather is expected to remain warm and humid and we may see some showers during the day. 

 

IND vs ENG Betting Tips

England and India are two of the strongest teams in this tournament and we can expect a close contest in this match. However, we feel that India is more likely to win this match given its stronger bowling line-up. The seam attack for England is relatively inexperienced and the the team is a bit thin on spin too.

Bet on India to win.
