Earlier, Cook won the toss and decided to bat on what looked like a dry surface for the first Group A match of the Champions Trophy. England dropped Steven Finn, who returned for the final ODI against New Zealand after suffering shin soreness. Graeme Swann was out ruled out of the game courtesy of a sore back. James Tredwell, who picked up three wickets against New Zealand in the third ODI, replaced Swann. Bopara, who batted at No. 6 and Joe Root will be expected to play the role of the fifth bowler.
