    Let India beat WI first. It's Wankhede and should perfectly suit their style of play.

Obviously their is doubts overs England against elite spin and India should be favs if they meet, but whatever pitch, flat, grassy or even a turner, England will have a chance on all and even the most die hard Indian fan wouldn't disagree.
    Yeah, I dread the prospect of playing Moeen on a turner... he's done us enough damage in the past already.

    I wonder if they should consider Harbhajan Singh. Surely he'd bowl better than Yuvraj and he can also bat a bit. Of course they'd be light in the batting, but this might just be worth the risk. West Indians dont play spin all that well.

    I'd surely play Rahane and have him up at 4 instead of Raina depending on how the game goes.Thats the only change i'd make.I dont understand what's the rationale behind playing Pandey like some are suggesting ?

    Rahane is the more experienced player.Can score runs quickly with Wankhede being his home ground as well.Can hit the big shots when needed and most importantly rotates strike better than most.I'd have Raina play the 'big hitter' role down the order and have Rahane play at 4.
    Rahane's criminally underrated in this format.Wouldnt take that Australian series into context at all.We're playing on a different surface in different circumstances altogether.

    Toss is the most important thing here though.Win the toss and chase.

    I don't fear India on any pitch really, Kohli's wicket dictates the game to a large degree. Get them batting first and chase them down.

    Guys any idea on whether Pandey or Rahane is playing?

    My heart will be with WI for this one, England vs WI final has far better meme value.

    But f***king Kohli will no doubt float onto the ground with more gold pouring out his anus than King Midas after taking a box of laxatives.

    Don't think India need to get too funky with selection. Pick Rahane and bat him at 4/5. Don't think it needs to be much much more complicated than pick your best overall batsman available seeing as we're at the business end. Just because it's not a perfect fit doesn't mean it's not the best option. It's not like you're trying to build the side around him.
