Rain delayed the start of the final, which has now been shortened to a 20-overs-a-side match.

Earlier before the showers came, England captain Alastair Cook won what many believe is an important toss and chose to bowl first and will be looking for an immediate impact on the cloudy day.

England made one change from the side that defeated South Africa in the semi-finals, with Tim Bresnan returning in place of Steven Finn.

Bresnan missed the last game at The Oval, because of the birth of his first child.

India, on the other hand, made no adjustments to the team that easily defeated Sri Lanka in their semi-finals.
