IND vs ENG Prediction

India Team News & Playing 11

Team News

Yuvraj Singh has been included in the ODI team.

Key Players

Virat Kohli, Lokesh Rahul, and MS Dhoni will be the key batsmen for the team, as the players  have been in brilliant form lately. Yuvraj Singh will be returning to the ODI format after a long break and will be expected to give a smashing performance. Shikhar Dhawan and Ajinkya Rahane will have to work hard on scoring runs and getting back in form. Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin have been the most successful bowlers for India for the test series, and will surely take their form ahead in the ODIs as well. Amit Mishra and Umesh Yadav are expected to give full support to the bowling side too and take important wickets.

Recent Form

India have been playing in brilliant form with all the players contributing to the team's wins against England. They won 4 test matches against England back to back, and are pumped up to thrash them in the ODIs as well.

India Predicted XI

  • Virat Kohli (c), Lokesh Rahul, MS Dhoni (wk), Shikhar Dhawan, Ajinkya Rahane, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Amit MIshra, Umesh Yadav, Yuvraj Singh, Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

England Team News & Playing 11

Team News

Joe Root will be joining the team for the ODI series.

Key Players

Joe Root, Moeen Ali, and Ben Stokes form the bright side of the England batting side, which is having a hard time standing against the Indian bowlers. England batsmen have had a few hits and misses in the test series but are lacking a certain consistency, which is a hinderance in their performance against India. Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali are the 2 pillars on whom the bowling line will stand. They've been consistent in their bowling and have taken a lot of important wickets in the test series. Ben Stokes is also catching up to a good form and is most likely to perform well.

Recent Form

England has good players in both batting and bowling sides but are failing against the Indian squad. They lost the test series without a single win, and will hopefully turn their fate around in the ODI series.

England Predicted XI

  • Joe Root, Moeen Ali, Ben Stokes, Adil Rashid, Eoin Morgan (c), Jonny Bairstow (wk), Sam Billings, Liam Dawson, Jason Roy, David Willey, Jake Ball.

­India vs England 1st ODI Betting Odds

Indian players are in a very good form and have been winning matches back to back against England, and their odds to win the 1st ODI are 1.5 with betfair and 1.53 with bet365. England have also given decent performances, and have the full potential to take on India and bag some wins, their odds being 2.62 with betfair and 2.50 with bet365.

­India vs England 1st ODI Prediction

India have been playing very well in both batting and bowling departments and are giving the visitors a hard time. England have been trying hard to confine India and grab a win but all their efforts have gone in vain. England will be trying hard to take revenge against India in the ODI series.

India have a strong team and are utilising their players far better than England, and we predict them to win this match
