England eye whitewash in the ODIs too

England paceman Tim Bresnan on Tuesday said, “They are looking to hit India hard in the upcoming One-day series as they aim to inflict another whitewash on the hapless World Champion side.” India will go into the five-match ODI series, starting September 3, without five of their World Cup heroes due to injuries.
Virender Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh, Harbhajan Singh and Zaheer Khan have all been ruled out of ODI action and Gautam Gambhir is also likely to miss the series due to concussion. “India might be favourites because they won the World Cup only a few months ago.
But we’re quite difficult to beat at home in one-day cricket as we showed against Sri Lanka,” Bresnan said. “If we hit our straps against India we should get the result we’re after. We hit them hard in the Test matches and we’ll be looking to do the same in the one-dayers,” he added.
The burly pacer said they were eyeing nothing short of victory in all the remaining matches in the tour, which also included a one-off Twenty20 on Wednesday. “India are a top side and we have to respect them in all forms, especially the shorter ones. But we’re out to win every game, that’s our mentality,” he said.
Bresnan believed that it was right decision to rest Kevin Pietersen for the ODIs.
“It’s good for him to get a break. No Kevin Pietersen in the side just provides a chance for someone else to step up to the plate and show us what they can do,” he added.

    They have a better chance since one Umpire will be local and the other possibly the one who does not like Dravid.
