Lagaan Part 2: Netizens recall Aamir Khan’s movie before India vs England clash

India take on England in Birmingham on Sunday.

Sunday is no ordinary match as India take on hosts England in a crucial ICC Men Cricket World Cup 2019 match at Edgbaston in Birmingham.

IND vs ENG Live Score, Updates

India, who have been unbeaten throughtout the tournament, will look to win the match in order to join Australia in the semifinals. Virat Kohli’s men, who will be seen in orange on Sunday, are at the second spot with 11 points from six games.

Fourth-placed England, on the other hand, require a win in order to survive the competition. They have eight points from seven games and face New Zealand in their last group match.

It will be a huge blow for the Eoin Morgan’s side, who were title favourites at the beginning of the tournament, if they fail to win the match against India. And that they must do in front of the noisiest, drum-banging, trumpet-blasting cricket fans in the land who will cheer every mistake by the opposition.

Conditions are set to be mostly dry and spin-friendly, more to India’s advantage than England’s.
