    Eoin Morgan: “I thought we had a perfect start. Winning the toss and batting first wasn’t an easy decision but it turned out to be the best decision. Partnerships throughout took us to a really formidable total. From 10-20 overs we got about 90-95 runs. It lays a huge platform and the two main spinners of India were taken on. Hopefully, this is the brand of cricket that we want to play and it has taken off. The slower balls were gripping and were taking off the deck, so we weren’t really worried. I was really happy with India’s approach sitting back. But our bowlers were superb. Liam has been outstanding for us, especially in the middle overs. There is absolutely no easy game in this tournament, as Pakistan’s game against Afghanistan showed yesterday.”

    Virat Kohli: “If batsmen are able to reverse sweep for a six you can’t do much as a spinner. They had to be more smart with their lines as it was difficult to contain runs with one short boundary. I thought they were going towards 360 at one stage, so we did well to pull things back. We were happy to restrict them to 330. If we were clinical with the bat, the result could have been different, I think. We had a decent chance when they (Pant and Pandya) were in there. We kept losing wickets and that doesn’t help in a big chase, but credit goes to England in the end. It’s up to discussions with the two guys who were in there. They bowled in good areas and the ball was stopping, hence it was difficult to bat towards the end.”

    Jonny Bairstow: “It was important to set a platform and assess the conditions early after winning the toss. It’s been frustrating for the guys as we’ve played well but the results have not gone in our favour. We can improve things going forward against New Zealand. I was reacting to each ball. VVS definitely helped me with his knowledge against spin (while playing for Sunrisers). They bowled well upfront as they got few edges but we capitalised later. We have three must win games in the next two weeks but we need to focus on the next game that we play against New Zealand.”

Hello and welcome to our live coverage of Match 38 of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 between India and England at Edgbaston, Birmingham on Sunday.

IND vs ENG Match Preview

Up until a week ago, the India-England clash was supposed to be the marquee clash of the tournament. Two sides that were most audience’s favourites even before the World Cup started. Forget Australia, who are at the top of the table. No buzz about New Zealand either, who are one win away from joining Australia in the semi-finals. Everything was about India and England – the No 1 and 2 ranked sides in the world.

Yet, in a matter of four days, the entire complexion of the contest has changed drastically. India are on the brink of a place in the final four and England in a spot where they need to beat the best side in the world to keep their chances alive. How did it come down to this? Only England know. But in a tension-filled environment, where shots are being exchanged between current and former players, England can reinvent themselves to be the team which started this tournament as co-favourites. Win the next two and advance. But lose one and it appears tough.

The rain has subsided and the sun is out bright, but the real chill seems to be missing in the dressing room. Admit it or not, Eoin Morgan and his team are under extreme pressure. They need to beat India and later New Zealand to ensure they go through. If not, Bangladesh, Pakistan and Sri Lanka continue to breathe down England’s neck. Their problems are self-inflicted. On the traditional flat surfaces, they score, and score big. But whenever their batsmen are subjected to a surface which tests their technique and skills to adapt, they go down.
