Jos Buttler (C and wk), Jason Roy, Dawid Malan, Liam Livingstone, Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, Chris Jordan, David Willey, Reece Topley, Tymal Mills, Matthew Parkinson.

Probable Top Performers

Probable best batter of the match

Jos Buttler:

England’s new skipper Jos Buttler will want to perform well with the bat against India and help his side in giving a quick start during the field restrictions. The right-handed batter likes to take his time to get his eyes in, but he can be very brutal once settled.

Probable best bowler of the match

Harshal Patel:

Talented pacer Harshal Patel was excellent during the second warm-up game against Northamptonshire after he grabbed two crucial wickets for his side and gave away just 23 runs in 3.3 overs. The right-arm pacer has a variety of slower deliveries and he can be a very tough customer to face during the death overs as well.
