A break of almost 12 days post finishing the last ODI against New Zealand must have given Indian cricketers some time to relax which is needed most at this phase and refill energy for the new event, which kicks off today. Recharging is important in view of the fact that overdose of cricket leaves players restless.

Not to forget that a lot of traveling and playing the sport in a short span of time leave players restless in the next tournaments.

India is a country where cricket is just not a game; people eat cricket and sleep cricket. As per latest available updates, England skipper has won the toss and decided to bat first.

The decision is sufficient to tell how eagerly England want to put India under stress by mounting up a number of runs in the team’s total score. Indians, on the other hand, would look forward to do well at home by giving no space to the opposition to feel comfort in gathering runs in speed. Win is expected taking into consideration their current performances but ignoring defeat part would not be right too. After all, only a team logs victory in the last part. If opportunities are outstandingly capitalized then ongoing series help them grow as players and teammates. Apart from Kohli, Cook’s leading ability will be watched too. With several upcoming challenges, expectations soar from dynamic cricketers of both the countries.
