England beat India by 31 runs

England defeated India by 31 runs in a must-win clash to keep their semi-final hopes alive in the Cricket World Cup 2019. 

After opting to bat first under a slightly overcast Birmingham sky, Eoin Morgan-led side set 338-run target for India at Edgbaston on Sunday. 

Chasing the same, India scored 306 runs in their allotted 50 overs. 

KL Rahul departed without even opening his account but the other opener Rohit Sharma smashed a brilliant century before losing his wicket to Chris Woakes. 

Virat Kohli scored 66 and all-rounder Hardik Pandya scored crucial 45 runs. 

Debutant Rishabh Pant looked nervous with his bat in the beginning but scored 32 runs before losing his wicket to Liam Plunkett. 

Earlier, Jonny Bairstow smashed a belligerent 111 and Jason Roy returned from a hamstring injury to feature in the tournament's highest opening stand and power England to a commanding total. 

Bairstow nearly deflected a couple of inside edges on to the stump and Roy got a caught-behind reprieve on 21 when he gloved Hardik Pandya. 

The umpire, however, declared it wide and the Indians deliberated for a while before deciding against reviewing the decision.

England reached the 150-run mark in the 21st over and it took a stunning catch by substitute fielder Ravindra Jadeja in the deep to send back Roy for 66.

Bairstow brought up his eighth ODI century off 90 balls, celebrating by dropping his helmet, stretching out his arms and soaking in the applause.

Mohammed Shami (5-69), who bowled well without luck in the morning, returned to end Bairstow's 109-ball blitz which included six sixes and 10 boundaries. 

India stemmed the run flow in the 30-40 over period but Ben Stokes (79) provided the late assault to help England get close to the 350 mark.

A game for a good cause:



Jun 30, 2019, 02.22 PM

India's new colour:

Virat Kohli-led team will put on a different jersey other than their usual blue as ahead of the World Cup, ICC had issued a guideline, requiring teams to have two different uniforms for all its televised tournaments except hosts England. 

Keeping ICC's verdict in mind, India will be wearing an orange-blue jersey which was unveiled on Friday to distinguish themselves from hosts England who wear a lighter version of blue. 

India's alternate jersey

Virat said, "For one game, it's fine. I don't think permanently we'd be heading in that direction because blue has always been our colour, very proud to wear that. For a change and looking at the occasion, it's a very smart kit." 

Kohli, however, loved the designed and gave it an eight out of 10. "The fit is great, it's a nice change," he said. 

Jun 30, 2019, 01.36 PM


England: Eoin Morgan (c), Moeen Ali, Jofra Archer, Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler (wk), Tom Curran, Liam Dawson, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, James Vince, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood

Jun 30, 2019, 01.35 PM


Training is different than usual for the big game.

Jun 30, 2019, 01.32 PM


There's bright sunshine, the baked pitch on the drier side with a promise of more turn than usual. 

The weather for today's game is set fair and the temperatures will reach as high as 25 degrees Celsius. 

Not to forget the New Zealand's match against Pakistan in which, pitch provided assistance for spin. 

Jun 30, 2019, 01.29 PM


Both the teams have played a total of 99 one-day matches. India dominate the tally by winning 53, while England won 41. Two clashes were tied. 

Jun 30, 2019, 01.20 PM


India, 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 the hosts from the global event. 

Not long ago, England were considered to be favourites to win the tournament but Eoin Morgan's men have bungled big time in crucial games, which has now brought them at the verge of exit with only eight points from seven games.

But with their backs against the wall, Eoin Morgan and his boys can be expected to give it their all as they must win their match against India and then against New Zealand to make it to the semis.

For India, playing two wrist spinners in these conditions along with a lethal Jasprit Bumrah could well spell doom for an English side. 

The middle-order batting still remains a concern and Vijay Shankar's performance at number four certainly makes him a weak link.
