Birmingham, June 30, Sunday at 03:00 PM IST
The hosts England will take on India in a must-win game to save their ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 campaign which is hanging in the middle. England needs to win both of their remaining games with a good margin to seal a semi-final birth.
With eight points in 7 games, England is fighting for the semi-final birth alongside Pakistan and Bangladesh. One more defeat can end up England’s World Cup campaign.
India, on the opposite, is still unbeaten in the tournament and will look to continue the same way. A win here will also confirm a semi-final spot for team India.
The coin toss will take place at 03:00 PM IST.
The last game played here was between Pakistan and New Zealand and a total of 450+ runs were scored. It is a good wicket to bat on. The surface is expected to be flat and drier which could provide some extra turn than usual. Batsmen may find some difficulty early on but can play freely once set.
There are no chances of rain and a bright sunny day is forecasted in weather updates.
