England captain Andrew Strauss has backed his side to rise to the occasion in Sunday's World Cup showdown with India in Bangalore.
Both teams come into the Group B clash on the back of victories in their opening game, albeit in contrasting style.
Virender Sehwag hit 175 as India overwhelmed co-hosts Bangladesh, while England were extremely ragged in the field before chasing down a target of 293 to see off the Netherlands.
"This is a huge occasion and is going to be a great atmosphere in Bangalore," said Strauss.
"It is one of those games that you dream of - playing against India in the World Cup on their own turf.
"It's a great opportunity for us and one that we're very excited about.
"... In some ways perhaps there is more pressure on India in this game.
"We've played a lot of good cricket in big games over the last 24 months or so - that is something we're very proud of.
"In big, high-pressure games we have performed well. This is one of those games and we're very confident of doing well again."
England, who have a full-strength squad to choose from with paceman Stuart Broad expected to overcome the upset stomach that prevented him training on Saturday, are considering playing two spinners.
Left-armer Michael Yardy, a key member of the side that won the World T20 last year, could be brought in to supplement Graeme Swann's off-breaks.
That would likely mean one of the seamers put to the sword by the Netherlands - James Anderson, Tim Bresnan and Broad - dropping out.
The alternative is to omit Ravi Bopara and push wicketkeeper Matt Prior up to number six in the batting order.
"If it (the pitch) is going to turn like it did in Australia's warm-up game (here) then two spinners is a very strong option for us," admitted Strauss.
"But I think it's important not to be too blinkered into assuming it's just going to do something - you have to take a look at conditions, there is a bit of (wet) weather around so that might change the look of the wicket and we're going to have to make a smart choice at the toss."
India, meanwhile, have been boosted by the news that Sehwag has recovered from the bruised rib he suffered during net practice on Friday and the knee injury that saw him bat with a runner for the latter part of his masterclass against Bangladesh.
"His most important role is that of an aggressor (and) to give us a good start, give us the momentum on which the middle order can capitalise," said India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
"At times when we needed him to bat more than 30 overs, he has done that for the side. But if he bats 50 overs I don't really have a problem with that."
Left-arm Ashish Nehra, who did not play against Bangladesh, is the only fitness concern in the squad.
