Pietersen seeking an Indian revival
Following a successful start as England captain Kevin Pietersen will be hoping for more of the same after a perfect record in full internationals to date.
Although there was a major blip in the Stanford Twenty20 when England lost by 10 wickets and thus missed out on $1,000,000 each.
Following this disaster Pietersen's side now travel to India.
In typical Indian fashion the limited overs format of the game is the preferred option with a staggering seven one day internationals crammed in to the schedule with space only for two tests.
If England's key players manage to stay free of injury and Steve Harmison does not become disillusioned with being too far away from his beloved north east then England should at least be competitive. Ignoring the Stanford Twenty20 debacle England are fresh off a morale boosting 4-0 series victory over South Africa, so should head in to the tour full of confidence.
After all in the ever so reliable official ICC rankings the one day side are now the third best in the world, even ahead of India who are in fifth.
However, India are 1/2 favourites to win the one day series with England available at 6/4. The one day series begins with the first ODI on Friday 14 November.
