Team India will look to add misery when they face out-of-form England which will take place in Lucknow on 29th October 2023. It has been a smooth journey for Men in Blue as they registered a thrilling 4-wicket win over New Zealand at Dharmshala.
India will miss the services of Hardik Pandya due to an injury. They are currently 2nd in the points table and would look to go to the top of the points table with another impressive win. On the other hand, England is on the verge of being knocked out as they lost their previous match against Sri Lanka.
England’s batting looked out of sorts as they could only 156 runs and lost the match in a one-sided contest.
Details– India vs England, Match 29, ICC Cricket World Cup 2023
Venue– Ekana Stadium, Lucknow
Date and Time– 29th October, 2.00 PM IST
India and England played a total of 106 matches so far with the Indian team winning 57, England 44, 3 ending in no result, and 2 ending in a tie.
Since the 1975 World Cup, India and England played a total of 8 matches with India winning 4, England 3 and 1 ending in a tie match. The last time these two teams met in World Cup history was during the 2019 World Cup where England defeated India by 31 runs.
The previous match was played between Sri Lanka and the Netherlands. It had some seam movement, but it became good for batting afterwards.
Indian team management might use black soil pitch that would help the spinners which would create doubt in the batter’s mind. The captain that wins the toss will likely bat first posting a decent total before putting pressure on their spinners.
