i agree wid sanjay. green tops will make d contest even. english batsmen barring kp arent overly aggressive. on a green top praveen nd munaf become unplayable. if english bowlers fail to get early indian wickets on such tracks it gets easier for india and other way round if india pick early wickets england will struggle. on flat tracks batting of both sides equals out bt there is big difference in fielding capabilities and running between the wickets which puts england ahead

Sanjay, India even with 6 first rate players missing is still a formidable team. They need a couple of good bowlers in addition to Kumar & Munaf. I think Rahul Sharma would have been an excellent economical & wicket taking leg spinner on English pitches. If Ashwin uses his head to keep the runs down, India has 4 bowlers. Can Vinay, RP or Aeron fill in the fifth bowler vacancy? But the Selectors must get Rahul there now that Rohit Sharma is injured. India did very well in batting despite missing Rohit. England is not that good a team as India made them look in the Test series. The batch of youngsters are more confident than the older guys. Parthiv, Rahane, Kohli all exude confidence. That is half the battle - Be confident & play confidently.I feel this ODI series will be close one with 3-2 win for India.
