England have put up a good show in the warm-up matches leading to this Group Match winning both their fixtures. They especially impressed in their win over Pakistan, who are being seen as a dangerous team and the dark horse for winning the World Cup.
The England team would ideally want to win the toss and bat first today. This would allow their batsmen the right kind of match practise as it is likely that Netherlands may get skittled out quickly were they to bat first. That would leave the English batsmen with not much time on the wickets.
