Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium had not been used ever for international test cricket before it means it will be the very first test match of England tour of India Nov 2016.

If we watch ODI stats then we can take a little hint about batting and bowling performance from some teams or players. England is the highest runs scorer against India in ODI format in this venue with 325 runs four down on 11 January 2013 and India scored 316 runs with nine down in that match.

Toss: England have won the toss and chose to bat first.

Second time against SA India scored 252 runs with six down and lost that match from eighteen runs. V Kohli is the second most runs scorer in this ground with 92 runs in two innings. AN Cook scored 75 in one inning, IR Bell scored 85 runs. JC Tredwell is the most wicket-taker in this ground with four wickets in one inning.

After the analysis of ODI format previous performance, we got that this pitch is so good for English batsmen and also bowlers. But one more attraction is there which is, when those ODI’s had been played then Indian bowling was not so good then these days it means this time India has the opportunity to take maximum advantage of home ground with their best seamers.
