The 29th game of Cricket World Cup 2023 will be played between India and defending champions England at the Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow. India need just one more win to become the first team to officially make it to the semifinals. England, unfortunately, have less than 10% chances to make it to the top four.
India is the only unbeaten team in the tournament and currently holds the second place in the rankings. England have just one win in of five games and are at the second-last place on the points table.
India faced New Zealand in their last game, who scored 273 runs in 50 overs, with Rachin Ravindra and Daryl Mitchell delivering a half century and a century respectively. For India, Mohammed Shami picked up five wickets. Later in the game, India successfully chased down the target of 274 in 48 overs.
