But our bowling needs to be on the mark.
For you, I would imagine the likes of Stuart Broad and Swann for me are a big key, we do play Spin really well but Swann can always be a handful thats a match up that will be a challenge.
I do think though that playing Yardy would be a mistake for England he is a useful bowler but it would weakern your batting and I would be far more concerned about Bopara coming in towards the death, he has the ability to be a superb finisher for England!
Yes fair assessment. Broad for his variations, his aggressive bowling and knack for taking wickets. Swann against this Indian line-up will make for absolutely fascinating viewing. India do play spin very well, yet Swann generally rises to the challenge.
I'm hoping another player that rises to the challenge will be KP. Although I don't necessarily agree with his move to the openers spot, tomorrow will be just his type of game with the spotlight on him from the first over (should we bat first). He can be the man that can take it to the spinners, if he can manage to get set against pace from the off, then in a controlled manner attempt to dominate the spinners, it should set us up nicely whether we're setting a total or chasing it.
