In the 38th match of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, the advertised favorites prior to the World Cup to lift the trophy will be squaring off against each other at Edgbaston in Birmingham. We are talking about the hosts England and India who are unbeaten in the competition so far.
With two games left for England, a semi-final spot looks in deep shallows for them as they need to win bot their encounters to go through the semi-finals. Any lapse here will dent their chances of making it to the semis.
As far as India are concerned, the only thing in their mind as of now would be to claiming the top spot which is currently in the possession of Australia.
