Cricket news - Live Cricket Score - England vs India, Match 38, ICC World Cup 2019, Edgbaston

KL Rahul injury update - He landed on the boundary and hurt his bat. The umpires think it's an external injury and he can open the innings.

Morgan bounced out, AGAIN

Shami gets his second. Pieterson would be happy. He predicted that Morgan is susceptible to the short ball and two consecutive games he's caught at deep fine leg. Short ball outside off, top edge carries easily to Jadhav at fine-leg. India have got two at very crucial junctures. He ends it with a maiden.

England 207 for 3

Two down

You could feel this was coming. In the last 4.4 overs, only 14 have been scored. Bairstow got frustrated and gifted his wicket away. Shami gets his first and gets rewarded for bowling well early on. Length ball and slashed to deep point.

England 205 for 2

Ton up

He drew a lot of flak for being critical of the fans and media. He now creams a 90-ball first World Cup century to make them love him again. England needed this and he's walked the talk.

England 183 for 1 in 26 overs

WOW!

Jadeja on the field and he once again makes things happen. Tossed up from Kuldeep and it was a wrong one. Roy smashed is straight and it flew to the left of Jadeja and low. He dives to complete low catch to give India a much-needed breakthrough. They were desperate for something special. England still on top as India believe.

England 160 for 1

England 150 for no loss in 20.1 overs

Twin 50s

Bairstow continues to test his luck. Tossed up and he just about manages to get it over KL Rahul at long-off to get to his half-century off 56 balls. The second century stand between these two in this World Cup. Roy has eased his way to 51 off 41 balls.

England 118 for no loss

England bossing

Pressure on India as all five bowlers used inside the first 15 overs. India's spinners haven't been able to contain and England are now making full use of the early luck.

England 97 for no loss after 15

Oh, dear!

India have missed a big opportunity. Down the leg and it took the glove of Roy. It was called a wide and India didn't review. That one kissed the glove and there was a big spike. Next two balls? A huge six and a boundary.

England 60 for no loss

Powerplay done

England win the first ten overs with a lot of luck. Chahal's introduction slowed down Roy but he managed to slog his way out. At one stage he had played 11 dot balls. Bairstow has settled in and the pressure is now on India.

England 47 for no loss

Bairstow living on the edge

Shami is troubling the England opener but isn't getting the reward. Two inside edges have flown past the stumps. Bairstow was struggling at 5 off 15 and now is 17 off 22. Roy looking good and leaving well. Testing times for England openers but they've got the runs on the board.

England 28 for no loss after five

Contrasting starts

Shami bowled a good first over but was struck for two boundaries. Bumrah started with five dot balls and then an outside edge helped Bairstow open his account.

England 10 for no loss

Alrighty then, the national anthems are done and Edgbaston is absolutely buzzing. Roy and Bairstow to open. Shami to start with the ball for India. Are you set?

TOSS - England opt to bat; Plunkett and Roy come in.

Teams:

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

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

JUST IN - Pant set to play and making way is Vijay Shankar. The track looks full of runs.

Here's what England need to do to qualify:

Pakistan's win over Afghanistan nudged Eoin Morgan's side out of the top-four, and leaves them with quite the most challenging four days ahead. Two wins - against India on Sunday, and New Zealand on Wednesday (July 3) will seal their berth in the last-four.

Should England win only one game, then they'd need Bangladesh to lose to India and beat Pakistan. In such a scenario, England will finish with ten points while Pakistan and Bangladesh can end up with a maximum of nine points. Even if Sri Lanka beat both West Indies and India and get to ten points, that won't suffice as England will have more wins (five to Sri Lanka's four).

It is mathematically possible for England to go through with eight points i.e. they lose to both India and New Zealand, provided both the below scenarios occur:

- Sri Lanka suffer defeat in at least in one of the two games left and end on a maximum of eight points

- The game between Pakistan and Bangladesh end in a stalemate and both lose their other remaining game (Pakistan play Afghanistan next and Bangladesh play India). Then all three sides will finish with eight points and England advance by virtue of more wins (four to three each).

Hello and welcome to the live blog of the ICC World Cup clash between England and India in Birmingham. Big game this for both side. India need a win to earn a place in the semifinals. England are wobbling and desperate to gain back the momentum. They have been pushed out of the top four and are fighting Pakistan for the fourth spot. A loss will not only hurt them, it'll also help New Zealand earn a place in the semifinal.

England are looking to play Jason Roy. Jofra Archer will undergo a fitness test and only then a call will be made. Morgan admitted that they'd take a risk on both if there was no danger of a long-term injury. Those sessions though indicated that the latter could very well miss out, having bowled very little of his full run-up and none at all in the nets, which brings Liam Plunkett into the equation.

India, on the other hand, won't look to change the winning combination. Stay tuned as we bring you more updates. This will be a cracker.
