Bangalore: England batsman Ravi Bopara on Thursday said that their clash against India would be one of their toughest ones in the ongoing cricket World Cup.

He added that English spinners could trouble the hosts if the game is played on a turning track.

"This is one of our toughest challenges in this tournament. We know what the Indian batsman are capable of, but we do have our plans to keep them quiet. We will see on Sunday," said Bopara during team's training session at the Chinnaswamy Stadium.

Aware of the enormity of the game, Bopara said, “Every match is big for us. Even the game the other night was also big for us. But against India in India is going to be huge.”

"We are not thinking too much about it. If you think too much about it you will get out of the mould. We want to stay relaxed."

Divulging details about his strategy, Bopara said, “We have plans against each bowler and every batsman but it is how the batsmen feel on the day. We generally play aggressive cricket. We know in places like Bangalore, there can be high totals like 270-300. It is a good wicket to bat on, especially against the seamers. It slides on to the bat quite nicely. Last time I played in Bangalore it did not spin.”
