After the completion of the exciting T20I leg, England and India are all set to lock horns in the ODI series, starting Tuesday, July 12, at Kennington Oval in London.

The visitors lost the thrilling third and final T20I but have already clinched the three-match series after winning the first two T20Is. India will look to carry the same momentum and capture the three-match ODI leg as well.

On the other hand, England will be focusing on making the first move by recording a win in the opening game to take the early lead.

Pitch report:

The track at Kennington Oval generally offers decent support to batters. However, initially, bowlers will have some support from the surface. The pitch will become more batting-friendly as the game progresses, so teams winning the toss might be tempted to chase here.

Probable XIs:

England: Jos Buttler (c/wk), Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Liam Livingstone, Ben Stokes, Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, Craig Overton, David Willey, Matt Parkinson, Reece Topley.

India: Rohit Sharma (C), Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant (wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal.
