Birmingham: Jun 23, 2013

India and England are set to clash for the coveted title of ICC Champions Trophy 2013 on Sunday. While India have looked invincible, England have remarkably implemented their strategies to work their way upto the final.

The home side England have been stable, but not spectacular. Alastair Cook, Jonathan Trott, Ian Bell and Joe Root form a solid top four that often sets the base for a later assault. Later in the innings you have Eoin Morgan, Ravi Bopara and Jos Buttler to capitalise on that. But, do England leave it too late? One thing that they might consider is the fact that India’s death bowling is still a concern and they can exploit that weakness.

India have been boosted by a strong opening combination that has done majority of the job. Shikhar Dhawan has been the star of the tournament. Rohit Sharma has supported him well with patient efforts, but needs to build on the starts. Virat Kohli got runs in the semi-final and that should hold him in good stead. Dinesh Karthik has also been in good touch. The middle-order hasn’t had much to do because of the top, but that shouldn’t worry India a lot.
