Alec Stewart expects that Graeme Swann, Craig Kieswetter, Kevin Pietersen and Jonny Bairstow will be England's key men in India.

Former England captain Alec Stewart believes that there are four players in the current squad that could prove the difference during the upcoming series in India.

Stewart has highlighted spin-bowler Graeme Swann, along with batsmen Craig Kieswetter, Kevin Pietersen and Jonny Bairstow as the men that should be able to take advantage of Indian conditions.

"Spinner Graeme Swann will have a big part to play because he's a handful anywhere in the world, even against the very best players," Stewart told BBC Sports.

"England also have more big hitters in their squad from the side that fell in the World Cup quarter-finals, so the performances of Craig Kieswetter, Kevin Pietersen and Jonny Bairstow could be important."

Touring England won their final warm-up fixture against a Hyderabad X1 yesterday.
