Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction - ICC Cricket World Cup - England v India - PrePlay
India and England will be a part of a high-octane World Cup encounter, the 38th match of the ICC World Cup 2019, which will be played at Edgbaston in Birmingham.
England will put all their might into this match as they are coming on the back of successive defeats against Sri Lanka and Australia. That combined with an early loss to Pakistan in the tournament has now put their qualification chances under threat.
Although one win might also suffice, they would like to ensure a semi-final berth by winning both their remaining matches and hence, this clash becomes very exciting.
The hosts are currently placed at the fourth spot in the World Cup points table with four wins and three losses from seven matches and have eight points. India are at the second spot with five wins from six matches and have 11 points.
The two teams met for a three-match ODI series in England last year when England beat the visitors 2-1. However, a lot has changed since then with the surface offering a lot of assistance to the bowlers than it has been offering in the last couple of years in England.
India have won four of their last five matches, while England have lost two and won three.
The two teams have played a total of 99 matches against each other, out of which England have won 41 and India have won 53. This will actually be the 100th ODI that both teams will play against each other.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:
England- Jonny Bairstow, Jason Roy, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan (c), Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler (wk), Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood, Jofra Archer/Liam Plunkett
India- Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli (c), Vijay Shankar, MS Dhoni (wk), Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal
