In the 2023 Cricket World Cup clash between India and England, England’s decision to field after winning the toss paid off. India managed to post a total of 229/9 in their 50 overs at Lucknow’s Ekana Stadium on Sunday. Despite Rohit Sharma providing a strong start, wickets fell at regular intervals, including the unexpected dismissal of the usually reliable Virat Kohli for a duck in a World Cup match.
KL Rahul joined forces with Rohit, initiating a crucial recovery for India. Rohit took the lead in the partnership and, in the process, reached the milestone of 18,000 international runs, securing yet another half-century. Their partnership reached 91 runs before Rahul was dismissed by Willey in the 31st over. Suryakumar Yadav then took the crease and contributed 33 runs for the fifth wicket alongside Rohit. However, Rohit fell just 13 runs short of his century.
Ravindra Jadeja departed shortly after, and Suryakumar Yadav was left to guide India’s lower order while trying to set a competitive target. He succeeded to some extent but narrowly missed his half-century by a single run. Jasprit Bumrah and Kuldeep Yadav then pushed India’s total close to the 230-run mark. Notably, the Indian team wore black armbands as a mark of respect to their legendary former captain, Bishan Singh Bedi, who passed away earlier in the week.
The forthcoming encounter appears incredibly biased on paper. The Indian cricket team, known as the “Men in Blue,” is becoming more and more formidable with every match that goes on. On the other hand, Jos Buttler’s England squad is dangerously close to losing the World Cup. Their campaign is in shambles after four losses in five games. A victory would give England some hope, albeit a slim one, to salvage their World Cup campaign, even while a defeat would further dim their chances. It seems unlikely that England would make a comeback, though, considering their recent performance and the quality of their opponents.
India’s one-week hiatus could be an advantage for England. India broke their ICC tournament curse against New Zealand in the previous Sunday’s last ODI. They then spent a little time in Dharamsala before traveling to Lucknow earlier this week for training. The biggest news out of the Indian camp, however, is that Hardik Pandya is not available for today’s match or the one that is scheduled for this Thursday in Mumbai against Sri Lanka. After five to six more days, Hardik’s injury—which was first thought to be a simple ankle sprain—has been classified as a Grade 1 ligament tear. Hardik has started bowling again and training at the National Cricket Academy (NCA), but it’s unclear when he’ll be fully fit.
