With the temperatures in England currently more like Madras than Manchester, the upcoming 50 over series between England and India could well feel more like a home series for the tourists – especially with the fantastic and fanatical support India receive at limited overs game in England, where Indians come out in their droves to support their heroes on English soil when the opportunity arrives.
The three matches 50 over series also sees the arrival of an excellent test for England’s No 1 ranked side. India are a power house limited over line up with a star-studded batting line up and high-class spinners to complement their bowling line up. The dual between the teams should be fascinating with England currently looking at taking the one-day game (particularly batting) to a new level which was seen with their total demolition of Australia 5-0 and in the process scoring the highest international 50 over score of all time with an incredible 481 in the third ODI.
The volume of international cricket can sometimes see a one-day series lack great context or the power to capture the public’s imagination, this series has no such problem with two sides desperate to assert their authority over the other and loud passionate crowds supporting players eager to show their skills at the highest level.
The series could well hinge on the intriguing matchup of India’s two excellent wrist spinners in Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal. The pair have been an absolute revelation in the last year and it seems incredible how easily they have ousted arguably two of the best spinners in the world in Ashwin and Jadeja from the Indian line up to stake their claim in the side. If England’s dominant batsman have had a problem in recent times its against the highest quality spinners and it will an excellent test of how far they’ve come when they go head to head against the Indian pair.
The 50 over games are preceded by a 20/20 series and should give some excellent insight into how the sides and match ups are fairing going into the longer format. From a betting perspective it offers a good opportunity to look at how the form and confidence of England’s batters go against the spin duo and where the main threats are in both batting and bowling markets. Its recently been a case of England’s explosive top 3 batting so well that they have totally dominated the innings and not offered any opportunity to the rest of the line-up. The step up in class offered from the Indian attack could see it take a different tack, with England’s better players of spin being more attractive propositions. Aside from the result of the 20/20s – the sub plots of both sides offer plenty of added interest.
