India has a strong team all round.India have dominated with the bat thanks to their opening pair of Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan who have been playing out the new ball with extravagant shots. Their bowling has also been exceptional with the likes of Ravindra Jadeja and Ishant Sharma claiming 37 wickets. However, England are known for their excellent bowling and players such as James Anderson have been troubling many batsmen. They also possess a solid Batting line up with the likes of the dangerous Alastair Cook and the consistent Jonathan Trott. India have by far looked the best side the whole tournament, and go into the finals as favourites. However, England being the home team are not like any of the opponents they have faced. The finals will be interesting to watch, and a great game of all round cricket is certain.

Well. In this particular tournament what we saw is strong Indian batting, and strong England bowling. So clearly it will be the test of Indian batting and England bowling. Interestingly both India and England are no.1 and no.2 team respectively in icc odi ranking. So it will be a great contrast and fight. Just absolute ending will be done in this last champions trophy.

Yes, India will be hard to beat. They have the best balanced young multi-talented ODI team. This team is determined to do well each day & this is an added asset. As long as this team keeps its nerves & plays to its full potential, it is not easy to beat India.

well no doubt India is the strongest side at the moment but saying this that its the most strongest team ever appear is not right, however there are couple of teams who are capable enough to beat India , Windies,SL & Pakistan....they just need to adjust few things
