Pitch Report & Toss Prediction:
The Pitch at Trent Bridge has always been flat, and there is not much swing with the white ball as opposed to the red ball. It is a batting paradise. The match will be a high scoring one, and the team that wins the toss will look to bat first. The hitters will have a good time batting on this track because of which a score of 300+ on the scoreboard will be a chasable target. The bowlers can put on some magic at this track as well because the pitch will get used to the ball; giving an upper hand to the team bowling in the second innings. The toss can change the match prediction.

Sarfaraz will be leading the side with not much changes to the team. The champions of the ICC champions trophy will be a significant threat to a team like India.
