Match number - ODI no. 417

 

Two of the pre-tournament favorites, India and England, are going to be playing against each other in one of the most important matches of the ICC World Cup 2019. India and England have been the top-ranked ODI teams in the last couple of years. They are both very good sides that know each other’s strengths and weaknesses quite well.

This was the same venue where the spinners got a lot of help in the match between Pakistan and New Zealand. There has been some murmuring in the media about England not getting the kind of pitches it needs and this may be in a bid to pressure the groundsman at Edgbaston to prepare a flat batting track.

 

ENGLAND

England has struggled in the ICC World Cup 2019. It has now lost to Pakistan, Australia, and Sri Lanka. It still has to play India and New Zealand, two of the in-form sides, and the knives are already being sharpened. England has not become a bad side overnight but it looks like the pressure of expectations is getting to it. The mental battle will be the toughest one it faces in this match.

 

INDIA

The only side still unbeaten in this tournament, India is under little pressure. It must win another match to be certain of its semi-final spot but it has two relatively easier opponents to face after England. Even if it loses this game, nothing much will be lost.India is going to be the far more confident side going into this match on a pitch expected to take a lot of turn.

Bears vs Bulldogs .... I hope it turns out to be the game of the tournament :dance:

 

Bears just need to win 1 game in 3 matches to confirm its place (assuming some of the teams can get to 11) so can enjoy themselves 

 

Go Bears .... Swipe, Swipe, Swipe! :ahaa:

This match is a WIN-WIN match for India lol You win you move to semi final  and put England away potentially. You lose you put Pakistan away potentially. 

Oh really ?

 

One can just as easily argue it is a lose lose situation.

 

You win and Pak controls its own destiny in reaching the SF.

 

You lose and two of Pak, England and BD can still advance kicking you out :p:

No. Even if India loses all due to their better NRR they will advance. ENgland will end up with 10 points as against India's XI. Both BD and Pak has inferior NRR.

Bro, your team has only 6 batsmen. And Pant's batting is highly unreliable. Like Shahid Afridi. Hit or Miss.

Effectively 5 batsmen. If we lose early wickets, it would be curtains.

Its going to be curtains in any case if we rely on Shankar. Bhuvi can hold an end up to some extent if there is a collapse. Even if there is a collapse and we have 6 batsmen, we wont win.

 

This team is very very reliant on Hitman and Kohli to win the game. If they go early, India will lose no matter what.

Once kohli reaches India people should put garland of shoes on his neck

Sala deliberately qtiyapa karta hai,yeda banta hai

Wonder where is his integrity?this man is the only reason even ardent fans are going away from the prospects of another India-pak face off

,His love for pak over Indian fans speaks volumes about his integrity,traitor

Enough of this pessimism related to Poyzz qualifying and steam rolling other teams. I say beat the hell out of Poms and aim for the top slot. 

 

Many posters sounding as if this Pak team is a ressurected force that is going to defeat us, if they manage to qualify. We already showed them in Asia cup twice and will gladly do it again, I dearly hope we get SF match against Poyzz.

 

I'd say crush Poms black and blue, and steam roll other matches to be at the top of the table. 

 

True champions dont care about who's playing against them, rather how they beat them comprehensively!!:yess:

Dhoni might deliver one of the greatest mind fks to padosis. While chasing 300+ score he will go all tuk-tuk. Padosis won’t know if he is deliberately  throwing the game or just being himself. They won’t have a clue what hit them :hysterical:

 

Now if he plays an uncharacteristic big shot and gets out then sure I will jump on the bandwagon with them to accuse he is doing it on purpose :giggle:

It's a great opportunity to test the bowling reserves. Kohli should hold Pandya back and bowl Kedar-Shankar . Yesterday Aus tried every possible bowling option they have.

Kedar's usefulness or uselessness as a bowler has to be tested before big games

He was useless against Proteas and the Aussies.
