After the first ODI at Bristol was washed away because of rain, India have done exceedingly well in the next two ODI’s and took a 2-0 lead with two more matches still to go. The fourth ODI is taking place at Edgbaston, Birmingham in less than a day’s time and it is one of the venues where India have a proper track record in ODI’s. India seven played four matches at Birmingham and has won four losing the remaining three. It is also one of the venues where the crowd and the conditions will back India.

The current team led by MS Dhoni will have fond memories of the victorious moments of 2013 ICC Champions Trophie at the very ground and will look to continue the winning run at Edgbaston. Winning the match will give India an unassailable 3-0 lead in the five match series after a poor run in test matches.
