England's captain Andrew StraussStrauss has said that he wants his team to put their recent One Day woos behind them, and start the ICC Champions Trophy in South Africa.
England were humiliated 6-1 by Australia in a 7 match ODI series and Strauss's men have struggled in ODI cricket over the last few years and they face an uphill battle if they are to progress in this year's Champions Trophy tournament.
England have been placed in a group with South Africa, Sri Lanka and New Zealand the top two teams from the group will make it through to the Semi Finals.
South Africa are the tournament favourites and Sri Lanka have been playing some superb cricket in recent months but Strauss insists that England will do their best to compete and make it through to the semi finals.
South Africa lost their opening match of the tournament to Sri Lanka, who appear to be in great form early on.
If you are a Bettingperson then you would do well to back Sri Lanka and South Africa making the Semis from their group.
