In another marquee fixture of the 2019 ICC World Cup, England is set to host the Indian Team at Edgbaston. Having lost two games on the trot, England has to defeat India if they want to stay alive in this World Cup. For the English Lions, it’s a do-or-die situation as they are precariously placed at the fourth spot in the point table with 8 points in 7 outings.
Kohli & Co will seek this as an opportunity to spoil England’s party and maintain their unbeaten run in this tournament. With another win under their belt, India would become the second team to make it into the semis after Australia. Team India, which remains the only unbeaten team in this World Cup, would be hoping for another clinical performance against England.
The fans are in for a treat as both these giants battle it out at Birmingham tomorrow. It’s going to be a fascinating contest when the tournament favorites will fight for their survival while the Wolrd No. 1 ODI team would be eyeing to maintain their dominance.
