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.
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.
India vs England Predicted Playing 11, World Cup 2019 LIVE Updates:
Dossier ready, execution awaited
Ahead of the win-or-bust game against India on Sunday, The Telegraph (London) has tried to make the job a tad simpler for Eoin Morgan and Trevor Bayliss. In an article: ‘How to dismiss India’s top order’, Cricviz analyst Patrick Noone has laid down the plans for the England bowlers to be employed against Virat Kohli and company.
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.
Pakistan cheering for India
Former English cricketer and commentator Nasser Hussain asked Pakistani supporters Wednesday who they would support in the match between England and India. The former England skipper tweeted his question after the match between Pakistan beat New Zealand by six wickets. In response, many cricket enthusiasts from across the border said that they would back the Men In Blue.
Is this the first time the whole of Pakistan 🇵🇰 will be cheering for India 🇮🇳!? #CWC19— Michael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) June 30, 2019
