England face a difficult task against the unbeaten India on Sunday with their Cricket World Cup hopes hanging by a thread.
The defending World Cup champions slumped to their third defeat in a row after a dismal performance against Sri Lanka, meaning they have won just one of their opening five games and stand on the brink of elimination.
Matthew Mott’s side need to win all their remaining four games and have a number of other results go their way to reach the semi-finals but face a daunting challenge against India.
The hosts could secure their place in the semi-finals with a win and have been imperious so far this tournament, winning all five of their opening games including most recently against 2019 runners-up New Zealand. Here’s everything you need to know about the match and the latest tips and betting preview here.
