Michael Vaughan: Confident England to beat the Indians

Luke Wright battered Afghanistan to all parts

"With a bit of pace in the pitch and playing under lights I fancy England to build on their encouraging performance against Afghanistan with another win."

Fresh from backing Luke Wright to top score at 5/1 last time out, Michael Vaughan is expecting another England victory as Stuart Broad's men face India under lights today

It was obviously a one-sided affair against Afghanistan, but England showed they can hit the ball out of the park and I can see some of the same happening again.

You look at the Indian attack and you fear for them a little bit if the batsman really get going. They were the only one of the bigger sides to give a minnow a look in so far in the tournament, against Afghanistan, and you sense they haven't got going yet.

With a bit of pace in the pitch and playing under lights I fancy England to build on their encouraging performance against Afghanistan with another win at a decent price of 2.1411/10.

Luke Wright was on fire the other night giving us a nice little win at 5.95/1 but I can't see him doing it two matches in a row, so we'll fall back on the tried and trusted route of backing Eoin Morgan for Top England Batsman, at 5.79/2.

As for the Indians, and it has to be my tournament top runscorer bet, Virat Kohli, for Top India Batsman, even if he is a touch on the skinny side at 4.3100/30. He is a class act.
