England vs India – Cricket World Cup LIVE: Follow all the action from Edgbaston as Eoin Morgan’s side bat first in crucial game
- England face India at Edgbaston after successive losses at the World Cup
- Eoin Morgan’s side have slipped to fifth in the table in bid for semi-finals
- Jason Roy looks set to return at the top of the order after hamstring injury
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.
