India vs England series opener preview highlights:

- The match will be played at Trent Bridge and will start at 5 pm IST
- Both the teams will play a 3 match series
- India won the recent T20 series 2-1
What a matter of days can do to the confidence of a team. After having lost to India at home in the recently concluded T20 series, the English camp and media have all of a sudden made India the favourites to win the fifty over series as well. Putting the English cricket team on a golden pedestal after their recent demolition of Australia in the shorter formats of the game, some of the leading tabloids as well as captain Eoin Morgan have come out saying they are second to India in the ODI format.
Billed as India’s toughest tour in a year, one that would test their strength and ability to play on fast, pacey pitches and test their ability to play the short, swinging ball, the English tour which sees them play series’ in all three formats of the game has seen the visitors draw the first blood. And in some style too after they comprehensively won the T20 series 2-1. The experienced bunch of Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni, Rohit Sharma and Bhuvneshwar Kumar know that they can’t get cocky or let their guard down in the upcoming ODI series which begin from the 12th of July. With English pitches one of the toughest to play on for Asian teams and the England ODI squad one of the best in the world, the Indian players and support staff knows that they need to train even harder if they are to have any shot at winning the three-match series, irrespective of what the English media says.
India vs England series opener first ODI match takes place at Trent Bridge in Nottingham and will begin at 5 pm IST. The match will be telecasted on Sony Ten 3/HD and Sony Six/HD in both English and Hindi. Tune into the SonyLiv app for live streaming.
