India got their ICC World Cup off to a strong start as Virender Sehwag's 175 guided the co-host nation to a deserved win over Bangladesh in their opening game.
England however struggled in their match with the Netherlands as a poor performance in the field almost allowed the underdogs to record a famous victory.
Broad has insisted that he and his team-mates will have to be fully focused against India, in what should be an electric atmosphere in Bangalore.
He said: "The sound bounces around the ground, and I think we have to use that to our advantage.
"You are going to get pumped up by the crowds - and as long as we keep our emotions in check, I think that will fire us up really well as a team. It is inspiring.
"The crowd will be Indian-dominant ... but the crowd does not change the way you bowl the ball and hit it - which is what we have to focus on."
