Mumbai: England batsman Jonathan Trott on Wednesday said that the visitors are determined to level four-match series against India in the second Test in Mumbai starting Friday after losing the opener by nine wickets in Ahmedabad.

"I think it will be good to strike early and go to Kolkata 1-1. It is very important that we have that mindset. I think the conditions are bit different here but it will work in both the team's favour with regards to bounce and turn. Touring India is fine but playing good cricket is more important," he told reporters here.

"We need to produce on the field. We are looking forward to Friday. It is a fantastic opportunity for us to get 1-1," the South Africa-born English cricketer added.
