England will hope to crusie Group A in their quest for the ICC Champions Trophy 2017
The winner of Group A will then play the runner-up in Group B for place in the final, while the other top two teams will make up the other semi-final.
The teams who qualified for the competition were set six months before its commencement, with the top eight teams in the ICC ODI rankings granted an automatic place.
This meant West Indies, in ninth, missed out for the very first time since the competition's inception in 1998.
India, the defending champions, have bitter rivals Pakistan in their group as well as Sri Lanka and South Africa.
Meanwhile in Group A, hosts England face Australia, New Zealand and underdogs Bangladesh.
