England and India, now ranked first and second respectively, play the first match of their upcoming series in Nottingham on Thursday, in what will kick off a month-long extravaganza of One-Day Internationals featuring 10 sides, spread across four continents.
The Virat Kohli-led side won the recently concluded T20I series 2-1 and the team management hopes for another valuable performance by the team.
He has played 65 ODI games and scored 2302 runs at a decent average of 38.36 with the best knock of 171 against Pakistan at Trent Bridge.
Nepal will debut in ODIs when they play two matches against the Netherlands on August 1 and 3 while the Netherlands will be turning out in ODIs for the first time since losing ODI status in 2014 at the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier in New Zealand. After winning the T20I series, India will eye to defeat England in ODIs as well under the captainship of Virat Kohli.
The men in blue carry a deep batting line-up with most of their batsman in good touch with the willow. However, Mahendra Singh Dhoni and all-rounder Hardik Pandya are expected to form the lower middle-order.
In the bowling department, Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal will once again be the key. If Bhuvneshwar Kumar recovers from the stiff back, he will be sharing the new ball with Umesh Yadav. Kuldeep has claimed 20 wickets in his last eight ODIs while Chahal scalped 24 wickets in his last ten outings.
The hosts are without Alex Hales who is ruled out through injury, with Dawid Malan replacing him in the squad.
England got off to another blistering start at Trent Bridge - a ground where they posted a world-record 481 against Australia last month - and were 71-0 at the time of Kuldeep's introduction after 10 overs.
With the ball, spinners Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali will be a major threat to the visitors.
