World Cup 2019, Ind vs Eng Playing 11, Squad, Players List: India face the hosts on Sunday

World Cup 2019, India vs England (Ind vs Eng), Players List Buildup: The men in blue will turn orange on Sunday as they eye pole position with a solid knockout punch on hosts England in Birmingham in what is being seen as a high-profile ICC Men Cricket World Cup 2019 encounter. With an unbeaten record in six encounters so far, Virat Kohli’s men are all but through to the semi-finals with 11 points but a win against England will further tighten their grip at the top and in the process oust World’s No 1 ODI team from the global event.

IND vs ENG Live Score, Updates

The middle-order batting still remains a concern and Vijay Shankar’s performance at number four certainly makes him a weak link. The team management has shown no inclination to field the exciting Rishabh Pant so far. Meanwhile, England was ranked No. 1 at the start of the tournament and was the early title favorite. Eoin Morgan’s team is not out of contention if it loses to India, but its fate will no longer be in its hands, and its dreams of a one-day international cricket revolution potentially over.

    Eng rely on Afghan foresight

    Nasser Hussain feels India may not be able to cope if the England batsman play to their usual standard on Sunday. “I am not sure they (India) can go up if England do raise the bar in terms of a batting total. That, plus the fact that India’s batsmen did not particularly play the Afghanistan spinners well and England’s recent statistics versus spin are excellent, is why I think they are vulnerable,” Hussain wrote in Daily Mail.

    Hello and welcome to India's next Cricket World Cup match. This time the men in blue, supporting orange today, face none other than the hosts England in Birmingham. We bring to you all the talk around the match in the cricket fraternity, action off the field ahead of the match and Predicted Playing XI

    England can rely on playing its must-win game in front of the noisiest, most passionate, drum-banging, trumpet-blasting cricket fans in the land who will cheer every mistake by the opposition. India's so-called Bharat Army fans are expected to outnumber England's Barmy Army supporters in a Sunday sellout at the around 25,000-capacity Edgbaston in what will feel like a home game for India.
