India vs England (Ind vs Eng) World Cup 2019, Birmingham Weather Forecast Today and Pitch Report: Team India take on hosts England at Edgbaston in Birmingham on Sunday. While India are riding high after their last win, this is a must-win game for England as they struggle to stay in the tournament after two straight losses.
The visitors, who are in the second spot on the points table, did not have a great outing with the bat in the last game against West Indies but the bowlers did the job for the men in blue. India will sport the much-hyped orange jersey in their match on Sunday.
