BANGALORE - England is looking forward to playing India at the Chinnaswamy stadium on Sunday.
“Every game for us is a big one. Even the game the other night (England vs. Netherlands) was a big one for us, especially against India. In India it’s going to be huge, ” said all- rounder Ravi Bopara.
“It’s going to be massive for the fans as well, the English fans, the Indian fans. It’s going to be massive, yes. And I think all the boys are really looking forward to it,” he added.
England has won its opening game, chasing 292 runs to beat the Netherlands by six wickets.
Talking about preparations for the forthcoming match, Bopara said: “Well, look, a lot is going to depend on the conditions. If the conditions don’t suit spin then we don’t have to worry about it too much.”
” If it’s obviously a turning deck, then we have got our own spinners as well. That would also cause problems. Any pitch that spins is going to cause problems to any team. It’s going to cause problems for India as well. We have got two very, very good spinners as well. So, yeah, it’s going to be a good game,” he added.
“To win the World Cup, we need our guys to fire, and hopefully they will do it during this competition,” said Bopara. (ANI)
