Live : India vs England T20 Streaming World Cup 2012 Ind vs Eng
England are likely to start off as favourites in this contest, owing to the form they displayed in their emphatic win against Afghanistan. India on the other hand looked a little nervous in their opening game and it would be fair to say that they allowed Afghanistan to put on quite a show, before finally sealing those two points.
Luckily for the 'Men in Blue', the batting more often than not seems to come to the rescue. Virat Kohli is one man who has been piling on the runs on a consistent basis and has managed to keep the innings together. Yuvraj Singh has looked good in short bursts, however, with the performance that Rohit Sharma put in during the Warm Up match against Pakistan, it might be a wise idea to send the latter in at number four.
As a bowling unit England have always looked very strong. With the likes of Broad, Steven Finn, Tim Bresnan in the line up, the pace attack looks like a potent one and one that could certainly shake up a few batsmen. To add to that, England have variety in the form of Graeme Swann, who could be a handful on Sri Lankan wickets. England will probably go in with the same side as the one that played against Afghanistan.
