Dubai: England`s top-order batsman Jonathan Trott has expressed confidence that his side can beat India in the forthcoming series between the two sides.

"I think we have a good all-round side that can beat India, who are currently number one in the world, and I think it will be a mouth-watering summer of both Test and one-day cricket for fans and the players," Trott said.

While the Indian team enjoys the numero uno status in the five-day format, Andrew Strauss` England are currently ranked third in the world.

Trott, who has played in 18 Tests and 25 ODIs for England, played a key role in the team`s triumphant Ashes campaign Down Under last winter.

"The current team is trying to get better and better and that`s the drive and mentality that Andy Flower and Andrew Strauss have created," Trott said on ICC Cricket World Radio Show.
