England face India in a must-win clash at Edgbaston on Sunday as they aim to get their World Cup campaign back on track.

Back-to-back defeats by Sri Lanka and Australia have seen Eoin Morgan’s side slip to fifth in the table and out of the semi-final spots.

They face an in-form India in Birmingham with Virat Kohli’s side yet to lose a game at the tournament.

The pre-tournament favourites face elimination if they fail to beat India and then New Zealand in Durham on Wednesday.

England are set to bring Jason Roy back in the side after a hamstring injury and Morgan remains confident of their chances. 

‘Last time we played India, we beat them in a series,’ he said on Saturday.

‘We lost away in a very close series but we believe, because we have beaten them before. There are two more group-stage games left. 

‘If we win them, we go through to the semi-finals and if we win that, we get through to a World Cup final. There’s still a lot on the line.
