NEW DELHI, JULY 12
Fresh from their T20I series win, an upbeat India will be eyeing to proceed with the momentum when they take on England within the first of the three-match ODI rubber at Trent Bridge in Nottingham on Thursday. With the ODI World Cup scheduled to be held in England subsequent 12 months, the three-match series will also give Virat Kohli and his teammates an excellent idea of the playing conditions in England.
In his column for the Times of India, former Indian batsman VVS Laxman wrote, “Team India came through another test of character with flying colours by clinching the T20 series against England with a convincing win in the decider. It was India’s eighth victory in a three-match T20 series, reiterating the confidence within the group, especially when it comes to crunch games.”
