India expect high scoring ODI series against England

While Mahendra Singh Dhoni has many big records to his name, the former Team India skipper could achieve yet another monumental feat on Thursday by becoming the 12th batsman in ODI cricket to join the 10000-run club.

Fifth-placed Pakistan will have to win the series against Zimbabwe by a margin of 4-1 in order to ensure they do not slip behind sixth-placed Australia, while 10th-ranked Zimbabwe will have to pull off a 4-1 win over Pakistan in order to leapfrog Afghanistan and move up one spot in the rankings table.

This was a throwback, with England prodding around and seemingly failing to pick the variations of the 23-year-old Kuldeep, who now seems sure to be fast-tracked into India's squad for the five-Test series that begins next month. I am sure those two will have lots of conversations about the role of being England cricket captain whether it is a red or a white ball. Add Ben Stokes to it and England bear a formidable look. There are signs of Joe really getting to grips with the Test match team as a captain.

England and India, now ranked first and second respectively, play the first match of their upcoming series in Nottingham on Thursday, in what will kick off a month-long extravaganza of One-Day Internationals featuring 10 sides, spread across four continents.

England lost the T20 series 2-1 to India after going down by seven wickets at the County Ground on Sunday.

"It is important in low-scoring games on tough wickets, you need people who can manipulate the strike, who can play spin bowling well, and can keep you in tight games. I'm sure he was bitterly disappointed to be left out because he wants to play every game for England and he wants to show he's a high-quality player in all forms of the game", Paul Fabrace said. "He will be spurred on by that and he will do everything he can to make sure he is ready for Thursday's game at Trent Bridge", Farbrace was quoted as saying by the media. "That's a skill that Joe has - he has the ability to hit boundaries", he said.

However, Root hasn't been in the best of forms in the shortest format of the game. It's a great opportunity for us to play a strong Indian team who will pose different challenges to what Australia did at the start of the summer.
