Well, as India & England are meeting at the ICC World Cup again, how can we forget the last defeat? India played against England in the 2019 ICC World Cup. That match was widely criticised because of Team India’s attitude. According to the critics Team India was not aggressive enough during the chase of 338 runs which was set by England. Critics slammed MS Dhoni & Kedar Yadav for their non-aggressive &  reluctant attitude.

Current condition of both teams:

2023 is just the opposite of 2019. Now Team India is in great condition. India has not lost a single match till now on the other hand England bagged their first win of the event against Bangladesh. India is holding the 1st position on the point table with a run rate (NRR) of +1.353 and England is holding the 9th position (second last) on the point table with a run rate (NRR) of -1.634.

Our prediction:

We predict that India will maintain their winning streak. If India wins the toss, they should opt for fielding first and if this happens the win will be buttery smooth. However, if England wins the toss and chooses to bowl first, India will win but with a little more effort.

Final words:

India is going to win anyway. So, do not forget to watch the match & stay tuned with sprinters.news & sprintersgames.in to get all the sports updates on time.
