All the teams are well prepared for this Tournament while team India is already busy at playing some great cricket in England, nothing better than playing consistently cricket before big tournament, it will help India team if they manage their fitness issues after playing some valuable cricket.
On the other hand Pakistan is unfortunate in this case as they are not playing any cricket series after Zimbabwe Series, they will need to sort out this issue immediately to bring some realization playing against top team like India, pitches will favor Pakistan but none the less India is already known these kind of surfaces because they are used to playing on similar pitches.
