Bresnan was unavailable for the semi-final victory over South Africa at The Oval, because of the birth of his first child. England stuck, meanwhile, with in-form off-spinner James Tredwell - who has performed so well in this tournament in place of injured first-choice Graeme Swann.
Alastair Cook won an important toss on a cloudy but fresh morning, and unsurprisingly chose to bowl first.
India, as expected, made no changes to their winning team.
