India vs England: Batting First India set a Huge Total of 171

England have won the toss and chosen to bowl first against India in the final Group A match at the World Twenty20 in Colombo.
With both teams assured of a place in the Super Eights and the result making no difference to the opposition they will face in those games, India have made three changes to the side that won somewhat unconvincingly against Afghanistan. Virender Sehwag, R Ashwin, Zaheer Khan have made way for Harbhajan Singh, Piyush Chawla and Ashok Dinda.
England have brought in the seamer Tim Bresnan in for the spin of Samit Patel.
While India would appear to be taking the opportunity to rest key players and take a look at some other members of the squad, England's change looks to be more tactical.
India, helped by some shoddy Afghanistan fielding, won their first game by 23 runs, while England beat the same opposition by 116 runs.
