Rohit: "Nice and hard track, looks like it won't change over 100 overs. Nice to have a score in front of us. We didn't play well enough in that last game but hopefully we've got our learnings. The bowlers have come out with great guns, so hopefully restrict them to a reasonable target."
Bumrah misses out with a back spasm, Siraj is in.
Buttler would have batted first, and announced an unchanged side.
England: 1 Jason Roy, 2 Jonny Bairstow, 3 Joe Root, 4 Ben Stokes, 5 Jos Buttler (capt & wk), 6 Liam Livingstone, 7 Moeen Ali, 8 David Willey, 9 Craig Overton, 10 Brydon Carse, 11 Reece Topley.
India: 1 Rohit Sharma (capt), 2 Shikhar Dhawan, 3 Virat Kohli, 4 Suryakumar Yadav, 5 Rishabh Pant (wk), 6 Hardik Pandya, 7 Ravindra Jadeja, 8 Mohammed Shami, 9 Mohammed Siraj, 10 Yuzvendra Chahal, 11 Prasidh Krishna.
India in Manchester - it is a love-hate relationship. At the 1975 and 1979 World Cup, India lost to NZ and Sri Lanka (the latter a shock defeat), but then defeated West Indies and England at the 1983 edition. Venkatesh Prasad got his five-for against Pakistan in the 1999 World Cup right here too and repeated a victory over their rivals here in 2019 as well. However, it is also the scene where India lost the 2019 semis.
