In another marquee fixture of the World Cup 2019, England are all set to host India at Edgbaston. Having lost two games on the trot, England have to defeat India if they want to be in a strong position to qualify for the semi-finals. The English Lions are precariously placed at the fourth spot in the points table with 8 points in 7 outings.
On the other hand, Virat Kohli & Co will seek this as an opportunity to spoil England’s party and maintain their winning streak in the tournament. If they get another win under their belt, India would become the second team to make it into the semis, after Australia.
The fans are in for a treat as both these giants will likely bring out their best in Birmingham tomorrow. It’s going to be a fascinating contest as the tournament favourites fight for survival while the only unbeaten team look to maintain their dominance.
