As for coach Phil Simmons, he pointed out batting as the primary concern. With India missing Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, it could give them the chance to take on Indian bowling attack.

“The main thing is how we bat our 50 overs. We have to bat 50 overs and put our innings together and partnerships together. Somebody has to be looking to score a hundred and hold the team together. Batting-wise that is it,” Simmons said.
