The event, which formed part of the Nissan Trophy Tour, was a partnership event between Warwickshire County Cricket Club, the European Central Bank, the National Asian Cricket Council (NACC) and Attock Cricket Club, aimed at deepening the ties between Birmingham's South Asian communities, ahead of India's clash with Pakistan at Edgbaston on June 4. He has the strength within himself.

"On paper it looks very good".

Domingo said the series will also provide a chance to settle on the best combinations for certain conditions in the Champions Trophy, with South Africa's group matches being played at the Oval (Sri Lanka), Edgbaston (Pakistan) and against India, also at the Oval. People like R. Ashwin have got enough rest; Jadeja did not play all matches.

"If I see all these players, I don't think anybody else can fit in".

Ajinkya Rahane, who has struggled for form in IPL 10, scored an impressive half-century in Rising Pune Supergiant's win over Mumbai Indians in the IPL Qualifier 1 on Tuesday.

"Ajinkya Rahane has shown time and again that he has the ability and temperament to score runs.

But Willey is not reading anything into the expectations surrounding the team, particularly having been part of the side that unexpectedly reached the World T20 final in India a year ago.

"The Indian team obviously looks far better. I'm not too anxious about it honestly, I'm really excited to move forward, I'm hitting the ball as well as ever so I think there are some big scores to come", he added.

They also play Northamptonshire before the first ODI against England next Wednesday at Headingley in Leeds.

Mohammed Arif, ECB National Growth Manager for Diverse Communities, said: "The Edgbaston Fans Trophy match was a great example how to engage with true fans who have followed India and Pakistan around the world through cricket". Pakistan has nothing to lose at this stage.

David Willey believes the "massive" competition for places in the England team can bring the best out of the squad as they head into a crucial summer of ODI cricket. They have everything to gain and they are the underdogs. They are far better.
