India will open their campaign against England in Over-50s Cricket World Cup that will commence in South Africa on Wednesday. They looked pretty much on the mark despite losing the warm-up game against West Indies by 2 wickets. In that game, Sanjay Beri and Tushar Zaveri played vital knocks with the bat. In the opening game, India is going to bank upon their form against England. On the other hand, their bowling unit looks balanced that restricted West Indies from chasing a nominal score of 195 runs in the warm-up game.

England looks like the favourites to win the tournament as they have announced a strong squad for the World cup. They boast a strong batting line up that comprises of Stephen Foster, Simon Myles, Mel Hussein, who will have the responsibility to score good runs with the bat. Meanwhile, they have a strong bowling line-up with the likes of Sean Cooper and David Snellgrove, who will look to grab wickets for their side.
