Importantly, the Australia v West Indies game will be played on the 481 pitch, so big hits might well be the order of the day.
That could benefit the West Indies, who are the World Twenty20 champions and have a number of players more accustomed to the game's shortest form. South Africa will be same. England will be the same. If the powers that be decide it is a 25 or 30-over game then we adapt to that as much as we can.
"They're obviously a very risky team - the way they bat [and] they're very aggressive with their bowling - but they've got weaknesses", Australian coach Justin Langer said.
Steve Waugh has warned Australia that the West Indies array of strokemakers and aggressive bowlers will pose the first serious threat to the World Cup holders. Like I said, we're not under any pressure.
But what a brilliant turnaround the cricketing world witnessed on Monday when "David slew Goliath" and the greenshirts emerged deserving victors by 14 runs after a hard-fought contest in which they outplayed hosts England in batting, bowling, and delightfully, also in fielding. They're not necessarily going to be bowling the same spot every ball, but going to be exciting to watch. "In this World Cup, we will have to play nine matches and a good start is very important", he said. "When I was growing up they were my heroes".
Van Dijk doesn't want to influence De Ligt's decision on his future
Van Dijk and Wijnaldum were applauded by the squad and staff, including coach Ronald Koeman , as they arrived in camp. I don't know if he'll play this game, but we'll see'. "You can't really miss it - everyone is talking about".
Australia are wary of the fact that West Indies line-up boast of having some of the biggest hitters in world cricket at the moment and it would really require some effort from the Aussie pacers to control the likes of Chris Gayle, Russell and Carlos Brathwaite. Raina said that no team will be able to obstruct India from reaching into the semi-finals if they managed to register a victory in their first three matches.
After their dismal returns since the last World Cup, many would have sidelined the team and not given them a chance, but the way the team has been shaping up over the last couple of years, especially with the return of their stars Chris Gayle, Evin Lewis and Andre Russell, they are a formidable unit, which you can discount, at your own peril.
The ground is renowned as a batsman's paradise, with England having twice set the world record for the highest score in a one-day global -- 444 for three against Pakistan in 2016 and last year's 481 for six - on the very pitch that will be used for Monday's match at Trent Bridge.
"We´ve all seen the way world cricket has gone the last two years", he said. Langer welcomed David Warner's innings of 89 not out in Australia's win against Afghanistan, his first official worldwide match since completing a one-year ban for ball tampering.
Well, I don't want to be the one who says, I told you so, but I can't help but tell you exactly that. "Looks determined. For him to battle through 90 or 80, whatever it was, and to still be there at the end and get the job done for the team, that's a great sign for us".
