But, don't expect the English team to accept the defeat so easily; they are not going to let the Indians walk away with the trophy without a strong fight back. They came back from 1-0 in the Test series to clinch the title, so they are not new to coming back from a losing position. They still have a chance to win the series by winning the last two ODIs.
Indian team cannot take them lightly as they have players such as Kevin Pietersen, Cook and Ian Bell who on their day can win matches single-handedly. With India in such positive form, it might take some special doing by the English players to defeat India.
If the Indian team manages to win the series, it is going to hold them in good stead with an important series coming up against Australia. Though the format of the game against Australia (Tests) may be different but players from this current ODI team such as Gambhir, Dhoni and Kohli, etc are regular members of the Indian team, so they are going to carry the confidence and positive attitude in that series as well, which will auger well for the Indian team.
