Highlights: England beat India by 31 runs

ENGLAND ARE ALIVE IN THIS WORLD CUP! They have beaten the unbeaten side in this tournament and that too quite comprehensively. What a time for all the players to step up. This is also, their first win over India in World Cups since 1992.

23.05 IST: Chris Woakes to Kedar Jadhav, A single to end the innings! A full ball on middle, Jadhav whips it through mid-wicket for one. ENGLAND WIN BY 31 RUNS!

22.57 IST: Mark Wood to MS Dhoni, Dhoni comes down the track and swings hard but misses. Buttler does well to move to his left and collect it.

22.53 IST: Jofra Archer to MS Dhoni, Good length ball on off, Dhoni guides it down to third man and keeps the strike. 57 needed in 18 balls now.

22.51 IST: Jofra Archer to Kedar Jadhav, Good length ball on off and middle, Kedar glances it to deep mid-wicket and takes a single.

22.46 IST: Mark Wood to MS Dhoni, FOUR! Much-needed but they need a lot more! This is short and down the leg side, easy pickings with fine leg up in the ring. Dhoni helps it no its way to the fine leg fence.

22.43 IST: Liam Plunkett to Hardik Pandya, OUT! Pandya holes out! Plunkett gets another important wicket. Something had to happy, the pressure of the increasing run rate was getting to Pandya and Dhoni. Pandya takes the risk of clearing the ropes. He tries to hit this slower length ball over long on. He only manages height on it.

22.41 IST: Liam Plunkett to MS Dhoni, FOUR! That has been hit with brute force! Poor ball. A length delivery and on middle, Dhoni powers it through mid-wicket and it races away to the fence. Need a couple more in this over.

22.35 IST: Jofra Archer to Hardik Pandya, Pandya misses out! Short and down the leg side, Pandya looks to pull it fine but fails to beat short fine leg.

22.28 IST: Chris Woakes to MS Dhoni, FOUR! One bounce over the ropes! 250 up! Clever batting. Picks his spot, sees mid off is up and just lofts this length ball over mid-off and it crosses the ropes on the bounce. A boundary early in the over, pressure on the bowler.

22.26 IST: Adil Rashid to MS Dhoni, Another single! Singles won't hurt India at the moment. This is flatter and on middle, Dhoni hits it down to long on for one.

22.23 IST: Chris Woakes to Hardik Pandya, FOUR! Just wide! Much-needed boundary! A full toss outside off, Pandya carves it uppishly but just past the diving Rashid at backward point. Less than 100 needed now.

Powerplay 3 starts! A maximum of 5 fielders can be allowed outside the 30-yard circle till the end of the innings. The equation for India to win is 104 off 60 balls.

22.16 IST: Liam Plunkett to Hardik Pandya, Yes, he has! What fielding that is. That seemed a certain boundary. This is short and on middle, HP pulls it firmly trough mid-wicket. Bairstow in the deep covers ground quickly to his left, dives and manages to push it back in. Stokes who runs in from the right, does the mopping up job. The umpire goes upstairs to check and replays show that it is fine. Two taken.

MS Dhoni walks out to bat. All hopes on him now.

22.12 IST: Liam Plunkett to Rishabh Pant, OUT! What a catch that is! Wow! How many good catches have we seen today? Woakes is the man this time. Once again the change of bowling works immediately. This is shorter and on the pads, Pant flicks it uppishly.

22.06 IST: Chris Woakes to Hardik Pandya, FOUR! Make that three in a row! This guy can really hit the ball well. This though was right in the slot. Full and on off, it is the slower one. Pandya shuffles across and whips it through wide long on for a boundary.

22.05 IST: Chris Woakes to Hardik Pandya, FOUR! Back-to-back boundaries! This is powerful! Another slower one and it is outside off, Pandya hammers it past cover and it races away.

22.04 IST: Chris Woakes to Hardik Pandya, FOUR! Woakes gets too straight and pays the price. This is right on middle, Pandya goes right back, uses the depth of the crease and hits it past mid on for a boundary. A four early in the over, need to make it count.

22.03 IST: Mark Wood to Rishabh Pant, FOUR! A welcome, welcome boundary for India. Not sure why Wood goes for the slower one. It is full and on middle, Pant lofts it over the bowler's head for a boundary. 128 needed in 72.

21.56 IST: Chris Woakes to Hardik Pandya, Slapped! Some shot to get off the mark! Shorter and around off, Pandya hits it hard through covers. Bairstow runs to his right, pushes it back in with a dive. The ball however, rolls back towards the ropes, Jonny though shows good awareness and he manages to push it back in. Three taken.

Hardik Pandya walks out to bat.

21.53 IST: Chris Woakes to Rohit Sharma, OUT! EDGED AND TAKEN! Woakes strikes on his first ball of his new spell! Rohit departs shortly after getting to his ton. He walks back disappointed, India's hopes of chasing this down has been dented big time here. They needed Rohit to bat longer. Woakes bowls this outside off, Rohit swings across the line but the ball kisses the outside edge and Buttler takes a good catch stretching both his hands to the right. A brilliant innings from Rohit comes to an end. 140 needed in 83 balls.

21.51 IST: Mark Wood to Rishabh Pant, FOUR! He did not intend to that there but a boundary! India won't care how they come as long as they come. This is short and around off, Pant looks to pull but is late in the shot. It somehow hits the middle and goes over mid-off for a boundary. 10 from the over despite the first two balls begin dots.

21.48 IST: Mark Wood to Rishabh Pant, FOUR! That should release the pressure! That has been powered! Short and on middle, Pant goes back and powers the pull through backward square leg for a boundary.

21.45 IST: Liam Plunkett to Rohit Sharma, 100 for Rohit Sharma. This is what happens when you drop quality players. His third in this World Cup and 25th in ODIs. He needs to be there till the end though. Holds the hope for his side. He gets there by guiding it past point and takes two.

21.38 IST: Mark Wood to Rohit Sharma, Good short ball! That skids through and hurries the batsman. Rohit looks to pull but the ball hits the higher portion of the bat and rolls on the leg side for one.

21.32 IST: Liam Plunkett to Rishabh Pant, FOUR! Crispy! Fuller on off, Pant gets on his front foot and drives it beautifully through covers. Chris Woakes runs to his left from sweeper cover, he puts in a dive but in vain.

21.28 IST: Mark Wood to Rohit Sharma, FOUR! Up and over! Consecutive boundaries! Full and on middle, Rohit lofts it over mid on and bags a boundary. 8 from the first two balls. This could well be a big over here.

21.27 IST: Mark Wood to Rohit Sharma, FOUR. Welcome back into the attack, Wood! Lovely shot. There is width on offer outside off, Sharma guides it past point and the ball races to the fence.

21.20 IST: Jofra Archer to Rishabh Pant, Pant is off the mark with three! This is on a length and around middle, Pant works it towards mid-wicket. Stokes at mid on runs forward and the dives over the ball. 150 up. India need 186 in the last 20 overs.

21.16 IST: Liam Plunkett to Rishabh Pant, A huge shout but not given! This is around leg, Pant plants his front foot across and looks to flick but misses to get hit on the pads. An appeal but the umpire turns it down. The ball rolls down to third man. A leg bye taken.

Rishabh Pant comes on to bat. He needs to stick around with Rohit here and try and build another good partnership.

21.14 IST: Liam Plunkett to Virat Kohli, OUT! TAKEN! A wicket out of nowhere! It is completely against the run of play! A soft, soft end. England are delighted and the bowling change has worked brilliantly. It is a gentle delivery, it is on a length and outside off. Kohli looks to drive it square on the off side but does not keep it down. It goes straight to the substitute, Vince, who makes no mistake. Kohli once again fails to covert his half ton into a century.

21.09 IST: Jofra Archer to Rohit Sharma, Another slower one on off, Rohit guides it down to third man for one.

21.05 IST: Adil Rashid to Rohit Sharma, FOUR! Another boundary! 4th in the last 7 balls for India. He makes this into a full toss by going down on one knee and stretching out. He sweeps it through square leg and the ball races away.

21.02 IST: Ben Stokes to Rohit Sharma, FOUR! Three in a row! Rohit Sharma has got into his elements! This is fuller and outside off, he just guides it through point and once again beats the sweeper with ease. 12 from the first three balls, this is probably the over which changes the momentum.

21.01 IST: Ben Stokes to Rohit Sharma, FOUR! Save your legs, you need not run for those shots! This is a cracker! It is a length ball outside off, Rohit cracks it through cover-point. The sweeper did not have a lot to cover but he stood no chance.

21.00 IST: Ben Stokes to Rohit Sharma, FOUR! Another over which starts with a boundary! Poor ball! It is short and on the body, sits up to be hit. Rohit pulls it through backward square leg and it races away.

20.58 IST: Adil Rashid to Virat Kohli, FOUR! Lovely, just lovely. How crisp was that? What sound it made off the bat. This is floated up on off, Kohli leans into it and hits it through covers for a boundary. Good start to the over.

20.56 IST: Adil Rashid to Virat Kohli, FOUR! Lovely, just lovely. How crisp was that? What sound it made off the bat. This is floated up on off, Kohli leans into it and hits it through covers for a boundary. Good start to the over.

20.54 IST: Ben Stokes to Virat Kohli, Another one which is angled into the batsman, Kohli works it on the leg side for a single.

20.52 IST: Adil Rashid to Rohit Sharma, FOUR! Brings up his fifty in style! It has not been a trademark innings by him but he is slowly getting into his own. It is his 43rd ODI half ton. He too needs to continue. Rashid gives it a lot of air and lands it outside off, Rashid goes inside out cover covers and bags a boundary. The last ball spoils the over.

20.48 IST: Ben Stokes to Rohit Sharma, FOUR! That has been creamed! England are leaking boundaries now. This is full and outside off, Rohit waits for the ball to come to him and the hits it through coves for a boundary.

20.45 IST: Adil Rashid to Rohit Sharma, FOUR! Second boundary in the over! Runs coming thick and fast for India now. This is short and outside off, turning away. Rohit goes back and slaps it past cover-point for a boundary. 10 from this one and 19 from the last two.

20.43 IST: Adil Rashid to Rohit Sharma, FOUR! Not sure what the idea was over there. Rashid floats it up outside off, easy pickings for Rohit as there is no fielder out on the off side. He lofts it over the in-field and bags a boundary.

20.41 IST: Ben Stokes to Virat Kohli, 54th ODI fifty for Kohli, 5th fifty in this World Cup! He holds the key for his side. There is still a long way to go. This is fuller and on off, Kohli leans into the stroke and pushes it through covers for two.

20.40 IST: Ben Stokes to Virat Kohli, FOUR! Lovely use of the wrists! Slightly fuller and on middle, Kohli whips it through mid-wicket and the ball races away to the fence. They need to hit boundaries at consistent basis.

20.38 IST: Ben Stokes to Virat Kohli, Well fielded! Fuller and on middle, Kohli strokes it towards mid on. Wood runs to his left, dives and saves three for his side.

20.36 IST: Adil Rashid to Rohit Sharma, Another single as Rohit pushes it down to long on. A good start by Rashid too.

DRINKS! The Chase for India didn't start as it was expected. Once again the Indian Openers failed to give a brisk and solid start to the run chase. KL Rahul failed to negotiate the bounce and gave a simple return catch to Chris Woakes. Rohit Sharma has failed to time his shots and Virat Kohli is as usual doing his job.

20.28 IST: Mark Wood to Rohit Sharma, BEATEN FOR PACE! Shorter and outside off, Rohit looks to cut but is late on the shot.

20.25 IST: Liam Plunkett to Rohit Sharma, FOUR! Trademark pull shot! This is short and on middle, it sits up to be hit, Rohit goes back and pulls it over mid-wicket for a boundary.

20.23 IST: Liam Plunkett to Virat Kohli, FOUR! Liam Plunkett to Virat Kohli, FOUR! Cracked! Magnificent shot! slightly short and outside off, Kohli goes back and punches it past cover and it races away.

20.21 IST: Mark Wood to Rohit Sharma, Back of a length on off, Rohit waits for it and then guides it down to third man for one.

20.18 IST: Mark Wood to Virat Kohli, A couple! Shorter and on middle, Kohli drags his pull through backward square leg and the batters take two.

20.15 IST: Liam Plunkett to Virat Kohli, Quick run! Fuller and on off, Kohli hits it towards mid off and takes one quickly. Archer did have a shy but misses.

20.14 IST: Mark Wood to Virat Kohli, FOUR! That has gone to the fence lkike a tracer bullet! Shot of the day for me. This is slightly fuller and outside off, Kohli times it through covers, it is right off the middle. Boundary.

20.12 IST: Mark Wood to Virat Kohli, Another brace! Short and on middle, Kohli pulls it through mid-wicket. JB runs to his left and saves two for his side.

20.09 IST: Liam Plunkett to Virat Kohli, Goes slightly fuller this time and outside off, Kohli reaches out for it, it goes off the outer half towards third man for one.

20.07 IST: Mark Wood to Rohit Sharma, FOUR! Second boundary of the over and a good way to end it for India. 9 from it and a much-needed good one for India. This is short and on the body, Rohit swivels and pulls it behind square on the leg side and it races away.

20.04 IST: Mark Wood to Rohit Sharma, FOUR! Not off the middle but Rohit won't care! India will hope this gets him going. Slightly short and on middle, Rohit clears his front leg and drags it over wide mid-on for a boundary.

Mark wood comes on to bowl. He will extract some extra bounce with his pace.

20.01 IST: Liam Plunkett to Rohit Sharma, Beautiful shot but just for a single. Full on off, Rohit plays a good looking cover drive but there is a man in the deep so just one.

Powerplay 2 begins! A maximum of 4 fielders can be allowed outside the 30-yard circle till the 40th over.

19.59 IST: Jofra Archer to Rohit Sharma, A dot to end Powerplay 1! Good length and on off, Rohit guides it to point. Just the single from the 10th. England at the top for the moment. India are 28 for 1. Another 310 needed in 240 balls.

19.58 IST: Jofra Archer to Virat Kohli, Shorter and on off, Kohli stands tall and guides it down to third man for one.

19.54 IST: Chris Woakes to Rohit Sharma, Sharma now comes down the track but Woakes sees that. He bowls it short. Rohit looks to flick but gets an inside edge onto his pads. The ball rolls on the leg side. Rohit wants a run but is sent back.

19.51 IST: Chris Woakes to Virat Kohli, FOUR! Up and over! First sing of aggression. Kohli dances down the track and also makes room. He lofts this length ball over covers for a much-needed boundary.

19.48 IST: Jofra Archer to Rohit Sharma, Good running! Rohit pushes this with soft hands towards mid on and takes one.

19.47 IST: Chris Woakes to Virat Kohli, Smart batting! Kohli shuffles right across and works this through mid-wicket. Calls for two straightaway and takes it.

19.44 IST: Chris Woakes to Virat Kohli, Kohli would feel he misses out there! Woakes bowls a straighter line and fuller. Kohli flicks it but it goes to mid on. He just needed to beat that fielder.

19.41 IST: Jofra Archer to Virat Kohli, FOUR! This is right off the middle! Trademark Kohli. Slightly fuller this time by Archer and it is on off, Kohli leans into it and times it through covers. No stopping those. Consecutive boundaries for India.

19.40 IST: Jofra Archer to Virat Kohli, EDGY FOUR! Lucky boundary for Kohli to get off the mark! This is on a length and just around off, Kohli pokes at it and gets an outside edge, past the second slip fielder and into the third man fence.

19.37 IST: Chris Woakes to Rohit Sharma, Another length ball on off, Rohit looks to hit it on the up but finds mid off. 5 dots again, can Woakes bowl three maidens in a row?

19.34 IST: Jofra Archer to Rohit Sharma, Goes short this time and on the body, Rohit looks to pull but the ball hits the glove and rolls towards fine leg for one. So no maiden.

19.32 IST: Chris Woakes to Virat Kohli, A good drive! Fuller and on off, Kohli strokes it to covers. Another maiden. This time it is a wicket maiden.

Virat Kohli, the Indian skipper comes out to bat.

19.28 IST: Chris Woakes to KL Rahul, OUT! CAUGHT AND BOWLED! Rahul goes for a duck! Dreadful start for India.

19.26 IST: Jofra Archer to Rohit Sharma, FOUR! Adding salt to the wound! Got dropped on the last ball and now a boundary on the next. Archer looks to bowl a similar delivery like the last one. Rohit leans into this one and caresses it through covers for a boundary. Second in the over. An expensive start by Archer.

19.25 IST: Jofra Archer to Rohit Sharma, EDGED AND DROPPED! This is a costly drop! You do not drop Rohit Sharma. A big let off for India. This is fuller and outside off, Rohit goes after it, the ball flies off the outside edge towards second slip where Root spills it.

19.24 IST: Jofra Archer to Rohit Sharma, FOUR! Rohit Sharma is off the mark in excellent manner! Just used the pace of the ball there. India begin the run chase with a boundary. Archer goes full and on middle, Rohit strokes it past mid off and the ball races away.

19.22 IST: Chris Woakes to KL Rahul, Another mistimed stroke! This is shortish and outside off, Rahul looks to force it through the off side but there is no timing at all. 5 dots.

19.20 IST: Chris Woakes to KL Rahul, Some movement for Woakes! This line though is outside off, goes away further. Rahul lets it be.

* We are back for the chase, KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma to start the chase for India while Chris Woakes will bowl from the new ball here for England.

What a batting performance from England! After back-to-back failures from their batting line-up, they have bounced back in some fashion in this must-win game. They are surely the happier side at the moment.

18.50 IST: Jasprit Bumrah to Liam Plunkett, Just a single to end! A yorker on middle, LP jams it out on the off side and takes one. End of an outstanding last over. Just three from it. ENGLAND FINISH ON 337/7!

18.47 IST: Jasprit Bumrah to Ben Stokes, OUT! The last over keeps getting better for Bumrah but what an innings from Stokes.

18.45 IST: Jasprit Bumrah to Ben Stokes, Just a single! This is very full and on middle, Stokes squeezes it out towards fine leg. He takes the first one quickly but then slips as he looks to turn for the second.

18.43 IST: Mohammed Shami to Ben Stokes, FOUR! Raining boundaries here! Shami bowls another length ball, Stokes slaps it wide of long off. Kohli runs to his right but can't get there.

18.42 IST: Mohammed Shami to Ben Stokes, SIX! All the way! Poor ball! With square leg up, Shami bowls it on the body, Stokes pulls it over that fielder and it carries all the way.

18.41 IST: Mohammed Shami to Ben Stokes, FOUR! That has been nailed! Shami misses his length by just and pays the price. Full and on middle, Stokes whips it through mid-wicket and the ball races to the fence.

18.40 IST: Mohammed Shami to Chris Woakes, OUT! FIFER FOR SHAMI! He has a hat-trick in this World Cup and now a fifer! He bangs this short and around off, Woakes looks to pull but one again does not get on top of the bounce. A top edge is induced which goes towards deep square leg. Rohit Sharma runs in and takes a fine, fine catch.

18.35 IST: Jasprit Bumrah to Chris Woakes, On the bounce! A short one on the body, Woakes looks to pull but it goes off the top edge as he fails to get on top of the bounce. It lands just short of the fielder running I from fine leg. A single taken.

Chris Woakes replaces Jos Buttler in the middle.

18.33 IST: Mohammed Shami to Jos Buttler, OUT! In the air... dropped, no, it has been taken! 17 from the over but Shami has got the dangerous Buttler who won't be in for the last 18 balls. India will surely be relieved to see the back of him.

18.32 IST: Mohammed Shami to Jos Buttler, FOUR! Easy-peasy! Another full toss by Shami, this is a high one. Buttler pulls it through square leg, he did not get it off the middle but just had to beat the man in the ring and it races away.

18.30 IST: Mohammed Shami to Ben Stokes, In the air... just wide! FOUR! Ideal start to the over for England, pressure on the bowler. A full toss by Shami on middle, Stokes hits it down the ground. Long on runs to his right but fails to get to it.

18.27 IST: Jasprit Bumrah to Ben Stokes, Excellent slower one! A dipping slower one outside off, Stokes is completely foxed by it. In the end he manages to jam it out. A dot which is gold dust at this stage.

18.20 IST: Mohammed Shami to Jos Buttler, SIX! That is some way to get off the mark! Slightly short and it is the slower one. Buttler stays back and pulls it flat over the mid-wicket fence.

Jos Buttler comes out to bat now.

18.18 IST: Mohammed Shami to Joe Root, OUT! Another good catch by an Indian fielder! This time it is Hardik Pandya. Shami gets his third. Root looks to play the paddle to this very full ball on middle. He wanted to hit it a lot finer than he did. Hardik Pandya at fine leg runs to his right and takes a good sliding catch. This wicket though could prove to be a blessing in disguise for England as he was struggling to find the boundaries.

18.13 IST: Hardik Pandya to Ben Stokes, FOUR! Stokes does take full toll of the full toss. It is on the pads, Stokes flicks it powerfully through mid-wicket, it is in the gap and the ball races away.

18.09 IST: Jasprit Bumrah to Ben Stokes, Stokes looks to be innovative but it does not come off. He tries to paddle scoop it but Bumrah bangs it short. Stokes still goes ahead with the shot but misses.

18.05 IST: Yuzvendra Chahal to Ben Stokes, SIX! Chahal is just not sure where to bowl to Stokes. Once again he is hit out of the park. Stokes comes down the track, gets to the pitch and hits it with the turn over the mid-wicket fence. A biggie to begin the over. Also, the 50-run stand is up. They will now look to up the ante.

18.04 IST: Jasprit Bumrah to Ben Stokes, Another short one on the body, Stokes pulls it down to fine leg for one. 8 from the 41st.

18.01 IST: Jasprit Bumrah to Ben Stokes, Good shot! Stokes dances down the track and Bumrah bangs it slightly short. Stokes slaps it over covers, it does not go all the way and the batters take 3. 250 up for England.

Powerplay 3 begins! A maximum of 5 fielders can be allowed outside the 30-yard circle till the end of the innings.

17.57 IST: Yuzvendra Chahal to Ben Stokes, SIX! Outrageous, unbelievable! That is some shot. That is deliberately played as it is the shorter side and India had no one back on the off side. He brings out the reverse sweep, hits it hard and takes the aerial route. Clears the cover fence.

17.54 IST: Yuzvendra Chahal to Jonny Bairstow, FOUR! One bounce and over the fence! lovely shot! This is tossed up on the leg stump, it is a little too full. Bairstow whips it over wide mid-on and gets a boundary.

17.52 IST: Hardik Pandya to Joe Root, Another ball on a length and outside off, Root guides it down to third man for one.

17.45 IST: Yuzvendra Chahal to Ben Stokes, FOUR! Welcome boundary for England. Stokes innovates and plays the reverse sweep. Hits it nice and fine to the third man fence.

17.42 IST: Hardik Pandya to Joe Root, On off, Root pushes it towards mid-on and initially looks for a single but the fielder gets to the ball quickly so they retract on the single.

Hardik Pandya comes back!

17.38 IST: Mohammed Shami to Ben Stokes, Well bowled! The slower one around off, this one pitches and grips. Stokes looks to flick but closes the face of the bat early. He gets a soft leading edge to point.

17.34 IST: Kuldeep Yadav to Ben Stokes, Edgy run! A loopy ball on off, it pitches and turns away. Stokes looks to defend but it goes off the outside edge past first slip and towards short third man for one.

*Ben Stokes is the new man in.

17.26 IST: Mohammad Shami to Eoin Morgan, OUT! In the air... and another good catch! Almost a replica of how Morgan got out against Australia. The Indians are absolutely pumped up. Shami gets his second and India are fighting back really well.

*Drinks

17.18 IST: Mohammad Shami to Jonny Bairstow, OUT! This was on the cards wasn't it? He was struggling to get the ball away in the last few overs, he was started to get frustrated and perishes in an attempt to find the fence. The bowling change has worked wonders for India. Shami dishes this shorter and outside off, Bairstow slaps it hard but it is the longer part of the ground. It goes straight to Pant at sweeper cover who makes no mistake. This is a good passage of play for India. They have not only got the centurion but have also applied the brakes on the scoring a little.

*Mohammad Shami replaces Hardik Pandya

17.06 IST: Hardik Pandya to Joe Root, 1 run. 200 up for England!

16.59 IST: Kuldeep Yadav to Jonny Bairstow, FOUR! Another reverse and another boundary! This time it is through backward point. Two boundaries and 4 dots in the over. Another good one for England.


16.58 IST: Kuldeep Yadav to Jonny Bairstow, FOUR! Excellent! Once again brings out the reverse sweep, Kuldeep helps him by bowling this quicker. JB just guides it through cover-point and it races away.

16.57 IST: Hardik Pandya to Jonny Bairstow, CENTURY! 100 for Jonny Bairstow! A quality, quality 100 from him. The whole crowd and his teammates are up on their feet applauding as they know how crucial and important this knock is. Pandya bowls another short ball which JB pulls through mid-wicket for one.

16.56 IST: Hardik Pandya to Jonny Bairstow, Good bouncer! He goes for a surprise short one and on the body, Dhoni looks to pull but is beaten by pace. JB may not have been expecting it.

*Hardik Pandya is back on for India

16.50 IST: Kuldeep Yadav to Jonny Bairstow, FOUR! Reverse sweep and Bairstow moves to 96. This is outside off, JB hits it fine on the off side and bags a boundary.

16.49 IST: Jasprit Bumrah to Joe Root, FOUR! Not sure he wanted to hit it that fine but he won't care! A full toss outside off, Root opens the face of the bat, it goes off the outside edge, past Dhoni and into the third man fence. An expensive start to Bumrah's second spell.

* The reason why KL Rahul left the ground and Ravindra Jadeja took his place and later took a stunner to dismiss Jason Roy

Joe Root walks out at number 3. He has been their batting mainstay.

16.41 IST: Kuldeep Yadav to Jason Roy, OUT! WHAT A CATCH THAT IS! Roy is shocked as he walks off. It is from the substitute and one of the best fielders in the World, Ravindra Jadeja. Surely one of the catch of the tournaments. Something special was needed to break this stand and Jadeja has provided it.

16.35 IST: Hardik Pandya to Jason Roy, Another swing and another miss! This is outside off, Roy looks to go big but once again misses as there is not a lot of bounce.

16.32 IST: Kuldeep Yadav to Jonny Bairstow, SIX! Bairstow is dealing in sixes! 150 up for England. Bairstow dances down the track and lofts this over long on for another biggie. Kuldeep is taking a real beating here.

16.29 IST: Hardik Pandya to Jason Roy, Good change of pace! Slower one and outside off, Roy swings but the ball does not bounce a lot and Roy is beaten.

16.23 IST: Yuzvendra Chahal to Jonny Bairstow, SIX! Just clears the ropes! Spoils the over completely! This is short and on middle, Bairstow goes back and pulls it high up in the air. He hits it well enough though to clear the mid-wicket fence.

16.18 IST: Kuldeep Yadav to Jason Roy, SIX! This is unreal hitting from England! Roy comes down the track, gets to the pitch of it and lofts it with ease over the long on fence.

16.12 IST: Yuzvendra Chahal to Jonny Bairstow, SIX! JUST OVER! Bairstow brings up his fifty in style. What a timely knock by him, he hasnt't had the best of World Cups but finds form in this must-win game. His 12th in ODIs. Chahal tosses this up on middle, Bairstow lofts it towards long on. Rahul there leaps and stratches his hands up but the ball goes just over. Also, the 100 is up for England. The platform is set for a huge score.

15.58 IST: Hardik Pandya to Jonny Bairstow, FOUR! Short ball and it is not going to trouble Bairstow at Pandya's pace. He goes back and pulls it through backward square leg. Beats Chahal's dive in the deep and a boundary. 14 from Pandya's last three balls.

15.57 IST: Yuzvendra Chahal to Jonny Bairstow, BEATEN! This is quicker and on off, it pitches and straightens. Bairstow goes back to defend but the ball whizzes past the outside edge.

15.53 IST: Hardik Pandya to Jason Roy, FOUR! This is even more frustrating for India! A six followed by a boundary. This is uppish but in the gap. On a length and around off, Roy lifts it wide of mid off and bags a boundary.

15.52 IST: Hardik Pandya to Jason Roy, SIX! Running salt to the wound! They missed a review against him on the last ball and now he blasts this into the stands. Roy dances down the track and also makes room. He then lofts it over the extra cover fence.

15.31 IST: Jasprit Bumrah to Jonny Bairstow, Slightly shorter and on off, this one skids through. Bairstow looks to pull but misses to get hit high on the back leg.

Change of ends for Bumrah!

15.27 IST: Yuzvendra Chahal to Jonny Bairstow, FOUR! One bounce and over the fence! lovely shot! This is tossed up on the leg stump, it is a little too full. Bairstow whips it over wide mid on and gets a boundary.

Bairstow once again plays a loose stroke away from the body, it takes the inside edge, goes over the stumps and into the fine leg fence.

15.20 IST: Jasprit Bumrah to Jonny Bairstow, FOUR! A very good effort by Pant but it goes in vain! This is on the pads, Bairstow flicks it through square leg. It is the shorter side so it is racing away. Pant runs to his left, dives but can't stop the ball.

15.16 IST: Mohammed Shami to Jonny Bairstow, Close shave! That did not bounce! Good change of pace there by Shami. It is the off-cutter which pitches outside off. Cuts back in and also stays low. Bairstow is beaten by the lack of bounce and Dhoni stops it with his pad. So just the fortunate boundary from the over. Good comeback by Shami after an expensive first.

15.11 IST: Mohammed Shami to Jonny Bairstow, ANOTHER INSIDE EDGE! This time a FOUR! This is outside off and on a length, Bairstow looks to push at it away from the body, it goes off the inside edge, past the off pole and into the fine leg fence.

15.06 IST: Jasprit Bumrah to Jonny Bairstow, BEATEN! Well bowled! Bumrah goes wide of the crease and angles it into the batter. Bairstow plays the original line but then the ball moves away and beats the outside edge. Three good deliveries to start with by Bumrah.

15.04 IST: Mohammed Shami to Jason Roy, FOUR! Cracking, cracking shot! Second boundary in the over! Slightly fuller this time and around off, Roy just leans into the stroke and times it through the left of mid off. This is a good start for England.

14.52 IST: 
Time for the National Anthems! The teams make their way out to the middle. India will sing their's first followed by England's.

14.45 IST: Captains at toss:

Virat Kohli: "Never a problem.. Love chasing. But honestly, we would have batted first today. We haven't chased after the first game in the tournament, so it's a good challenge for us. We haven't really focused on the opposition in this tournament, that's why we have been consistent. We do have one change. Vijay Shankar has a toe niggle, Rishabh Pant is in. He brings in a lot of fearlessness. He has a small boundary. Once he gets to 20, then it's a different ball game. To be honest I haven't seen what's been happening outside. But I do believe the Pakistani fans will be supporting us, which is a rare thing."

Eoin Morgan: "We are going to bat first. Two games to go, looking to win both and go through. Tactical move to bring in Plunkett in place of Moeen. There could be a bit more pace and bounce. Looks like the wicket will not offer much of turn, so we feel Liam will be more effective today. Jason Roy has trained well and fit to play. We are rejigged and reset as a team."

14.37 IST: Playing XIs:

England: Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan (C), Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler (WK), Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid, Liam Plunkett, Jofra Archer, Mark Wood

India: Lokesh Rahul, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli (C), Rishabh Pant, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni (WK), Hardik Pandya, Mohammed Shami, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah

14.30 IST: PITCH REPORT -- It's a hard pitch and rolled properly and it is a flat track at Edgbaston and runs will be scored at will here. So win toss, bat first should be the motto.

Brief preview: England can rely on playing its must-win game in front of the noisiest, most passionate, drum-banging, trumpet-blasting cricket fans in the land who will cheer every mistake by the opposition. But the World Cup hosts will also have some supporters of its own in Birmingham. India's so-called Bharat Army fans are expected to outnumber England's Barmy Army supporters in a Sunday sellout at the around 25,000-capacity Edgbaston in what will feel like a home game for India.
