England beat India by 31 runs

The unbeaten side in the tournament has been beaten. England win the match by 31 runs. This win ends Sri Lanka's campaign which means tomorrow's game will be a dead rubber. MS Dhoni remains unbeaten for 42. This is India's first defeat against England in World Cups since 1992. 


The first six of India's innings comes in the final over. MS Dhoni hits a six off Chris Woakes short ball. 

Sourav Ganguly is not happy

Sourav Ganguly does not seem happy with the way Kedar Jadhav and MS Dhoni have approached the run chase in the death overs. Just 7 runs from the penultimate over. IND - 294/5 in 49 overs

No boundaries in death overs

Not a single boundary in the last 15 deliveries. This is disappointing from Kedar Jadhav and MS Dhoni. 51 runs needed 12 balls. IND - 287/5 in 48 overs

No intent at all

Adil Rashid into the attack

Rashid does not let Pandya, Dhoni get a boundary from his sixth over. India need 90 runs from 48 balls. The required run rate is just over 11 runs per over. IND - 248/4 in 42 overs

Pandya keeping India in hunt

Pandya is constantly looking for boundaries. He is keeping India in the hunt. The target still looks achievable with MS Dhoni by his side. India need 95 runs from 54 balls. IND - 243/3 in 41 overs

10 overs left

Hardik Pandya looks in fine touch. He has been hitting the ball well but somehow Jonny Bairstow manages to save the boundary on the leg side. MS Dhoni comes to bat, he leaves the first ball. India need 104 runs to win from 60 deliveries. IND - 234/4 in 40 overs


Chris Woakes takes a spectacular catch diving to his left. Rishabh Pant's inning comes to an end. He scored 32 runs from 29 balls on debut. MS Dhoni comes to bat now. IND - 226/4 in 39.1 overs

Pandya hulks out!

200 up for India

Pant takes charge

Rishabh Pant has made his intentions clear now. With run rate climbing to 10 runs per over, he is going to flash his blade at every ball in his arc. Two boundaries from Wood's over. IND - 198/2 in 36 overs


Rohit Sharma hits his third century of the tournament. He reaches the three figures in 106 deliveries. But the job is only half done as India need 150 runs from 15 overs. IND - 188/2 in 35 overs

Pant smacks Plunkett

Plunkett comes in for his 7th over. Rohit and Pant show that they have developed an understanding between them, dealing in quick singles and twos. Pant eases his nerves by hitting Plunkett for his first four through the covers on the fourth ball of the over. IND are 177/2 after 33 overs.

Rohit maintains momentum

Mark Wood comes in place of Jofra Archer, and he is instantly punished by Rohit Sharma with two consecutive boundaries. Rohit is nearing his century and he knows that much depends on him now. 11 from the over. Rohit on 91. IND are 166/2 after 32 overs. 

India on the backfoot

After losing the captain, India has gone on the backfoot for a while now. Pant is still unsettled swinging his bat with not the fullest of his confidence. Just the 7 runs from the last two overs. IND are 155/2 after 31 overs.

Pant quite shaky

Rishabh Pant, as soon as he is on the pitch, provides England with two run-out opportunities. Plunkett also had a LBW shout against him. The youngster seems shaky so far. IND are 149/2 after 29 runs.


THAT'S A WICKET! Liam Plunkett gets the big one as Kohli is caught after having scored 66. IND are 146/2 after 28.2 overs.

Archer slows down India

Replacing Stokes, Jofra Archer is brought in by Eoin Morgan to slow down the duo of Sharma and Kohli who have been on a boundary spree. Good over from the 24-year old as he concedes just four singles. IND are 144/1 after 28 overs.

Rohit's hat-trick of fours

Rohit Sharma is starting to look dangerous now. He hits three boundaries in a row off Stokes in three different directions. This run chase is still alive folks! IND - 133/1 in 26 overs

Halfway through the innings

India still need 218 runs from 25 overs. The partnership between Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma can be threatening for England as the two batsmen have played themselves in and have the ability to manipulate the field and exploit the short boundaries. IND - 120/1 in 25 overs

Fifty for Rohit Sharma

It has not been easy for Rohit Sharma in this run chase. He has struggled to time the ball but he has ensured he does not lose his wicket and tried to form a partnership with Virat Kohli. IND - 107/1 in 23 overs

100 up for India

Drinks break

Sweet sound of the bat

Virat Kohli plays a cracking shot on the offside for a boundary. That was beautifully timed from the Indian skipper. Meanwhile, 50 up for India in the 14th over. IND - 51/2 in 14 overs

Rohit Sharma looking to hit every ball

Rohit Sharma is throwing his bat at everything. The pressure is building up on him. Two pull shots get him the confidence he needed. 9 runs from Mark Wood's over. IND - 40/1 in 12 overs

Swing and a miss

End of first powerplay overs
