Select your Indian team for the first ODI against England

It's less than a month since Team India returned from England empty-handed, humiliated during the course of the tour. M S Dhoni's team was whitewashed 4-0 in the Test series, beaten in the lone T20 and swamped 3-0 in the One-day series that followed.

The upcoming ODI series, beginning Friday, presents the team an opportunity to not only get back at the visitors, but also take the No. 4 slot in the ICC ODI rankings.

The home side can take inspiration from the fact that they had trounced the Englishmen 5-0 the last time they toured back in 2008.

But what will worry new coach Duncan Fletcher and Dhoni is the fact that India has not won at the Rajiv Gandhi International statdium in Uppal, Hyderabad, where the Friday's match will be played.

What should be the team composition for the match? You can be of help before the eleven are selected.

Put on your thinking caps and pick the best possible combination to take on England.
