India will hope to continue their dominant run when they take on England in the upcoming match of this ICC ODI World Cup. The big-ticket clash will take place at the Ekana Sports City in Lucknow on October 29. India have been unbeaten thus far in this World Cup. With five back-to-back victories, the Men in Blue are holding the second spot in the points table. They will look to reclaim the top spot in the points table.

In their previous game, India were up against New Zealand, who also look to be in red-hot form this year. The hosts had the last laugh in the high-voltage face-off, securing a four-wicket victory. Virat Kohli was the game-changer for India as he played a gritty 95-run knock, helping India chase down a 274-run target at ease.

Meanwhile, England are going through a lean patch since the beginning of this World Cup. The defending champions have managed just a single win in their five appearances. Going by the situation of the points table, it will be difficult for England to return to the semi-final race. The English batting department faced a massive collapse in their last game against Sri Lanka. Batting first, Jos Buttler’s men could produce only 156 runs and eventually lost the match by 8 wickets.
