World Cup Prediction India vs England Showdown 29th Match

Being defending champions, the expectations were very high from the Englishmen but their depressive start against New Zealand in their opening game of the tournament indicated a bad world cup campaign.

They lost their footing against Afghanistan in the coming days where they were never really in the fight in both innings of the contest and then a thumping loss to South Africa and Sri Lanka ended their dreams of even making it to the semi-finals.

Jos Buttler and co are placed at the ninth spot in the points table with only two points in hand after five games.

On the flip side, Rohit Sharma and his men have been making hay of home conditions. India steam-rolled through Pakistan, Australia, New Zealand, Afghanistan and Bangladesh.

They are the only unbeaten team in the tournament so far, and playing effortlessly, clicking in every department.

They have amassed a whopping 10 points in just five games. They look like an invincible side as of now regardless of switching of players from the bench to the playing XI.

Even Mohammad Shami, who played his first game of the world cup in India’s last contest against New Zealand was remarkable with the ball. His five-wicket haul crippled NZ’s batting and he was consequently declared the Player of the Match for his spell.

India vs England Head-to-Head Record

In their 106 ODIs together, India won 57 games and England 44. In the ODI world cups, the odds are even as both teams have won four apiece in their eight clashes.

Probable big performers of the match

Both teams are giants of world cricket and brimming with game-changing stars. However, on the basis of their current form, we have picked a few names that are most likely to make an impact on the Sunday’s match.

Virat Kohli

Virat Kohli is in the form of his life this world cup, having won his side back-to-back games. His ability to make big chases look mediocre makes him a player that every team would want to have.

The Indian team has looked upon him every time they have been chasing targets with wickets falling from the other end. Losing partners from the other end has never made him slow his pace or play differently, defensively.

He has been able to pull wins from jaws of defeats even with tail-enders by his side.

To eradicate India’s chances of winning the contest, England will have to try and get rid of the Chase Master as soon as they possibly can.

So far, he is the second-highest run-scorer of the world with 354 runs.

He’s only the second player after KL Rahul (177) to average over 100 (118) in the tournament which shows he likes to finish the games unbeaten, something even most elite batters in the world are unable to do so with this consistency.

Dawid Malan

Malan scored a magnificent century in the game against Bangladesh on October 10 in Dharamsala. His century helped England get their only win of the mega event.

This shows how significant it is for England to have Malan fire up the order and fetch them big runs in the powerplay.

The left-handed top-order batter became a big name through his prolific knocks in franchise cricket and he has transformed himself into a great batsman in the 50-over format as well.

England will need him to stay at the wicket for as long as he can because he likes to play at a high strike-rate.

Rohit Sharma

India captain is in a sublime touch. He has been giving quick starts at top of the innings alongside Shubman Gill.

What makes a threat for the opposition is his aggressive style of play that has fetched him 311 runs. He has hit the most sixes in the tournament (17 sixes) and most boundaries overall (50).

Sharma likes to go big from the get-go regardless of the inning and nature of the pitch. This attitude helps India dominate the bowlers and put the opposition under immense pressure.

His aggression and quick runs then allow other batters like Virat, Rahul and Shreyas Iyer to take their time and build their innings to propel India to a huge target. And so far, this method has been working really well for the hosts.

David Willey

Willey has been a key all-rounder for England. When he can't contribute with the ball, he does the job with the bat. And he’s a handy fielder as well who keeps the batters in check.

India will have to play his inswing with caution when Willey will come down the track running with the new ball.

In Reece Topley’s absence, he will have the main role to give his side early breakthroughs in the opening spells.

While other bowlers were getting smashed all over the park in England's last match against Sri Lanka, Willey was being respected because he kept bowling in the right areas.

Sri Lanka lost only two wickets while chasing the target and both dismissals were taken by him.

India vs England World Cup Prediction

India’s current form coupled with the ongoing momentum makes them clear favourites to win on Sunday.

England looks extremely mediocre in every department. It will be a huge upset if they can break India’s unbeaten streak in this tournament with the kind of cricket they have been playing so far.

Rohit Sharma’s unit should be able to clinch another two points on Sunday against Buttler’s men.

The unit that the Indian team is showing on and off the field will help them ultimately clinch the world title unless a guest team decides to play out of their skin in the later stages.
