India vs England is the 38th match of the World Cup, and an important one for the hosts as they need to win the match to make sure their retain control of their destiny. So far, England have done all things right, with Eoin Morgan winning the toss and his batsmen doing their job by posting 337 runs on the board. While India know a victory will seal their spot in the World Cup semi finals, with two games remaining after this one, there is some room for error for Virat Kohli's men, though they will want to maintain their perfect journey so far in the tournament. The hosts, however, were under pressure going into the India vs England game, having lost their two previous matches against Australia and Sri Lanka. Pakistan's win against Afghanistan on Saturday means England have dropped to fifth in the table, out of contention for the last semi finals spot. England know a victory in the match against India is the only way of ensuring that their World Cup 2019 destiny stays in their own hands.
England have won the toss and opted to bat first, no doubt hoping they put on a big score and put India under pressure. This is only the second time in the tournament India will be chasing, having won their first game of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 against South Africa by 6 wickets. India have made one change in the playing XI compared to the previous game, with Vijay Shankar missing out thanks to a "toe niggle", and Rishabh Pant taking his place in the Indian team. England, meanwhile, have made two changes with Jason Roy and Liam Plunkett coming in for Jason Vince and Moen Ali respectively.
