The Men-in-Blue and the English team have faced each other in an ODI series in India past year when the hosts were victorious by 2-1.

In the opening ODI, spin can be the key factor as the Trent Bridge ground will be drier than normal.

Currently, Rohit Sharma is the only player who has scored three hundreds in T20Is and three double-centuries in ODIs and when he was asked to rate his hundreds, he said it is hard to do so.
