HIGHLIGHTS

  • 23:08 (IST)

    Dhoni and Jadhav manage to get a six and a four, respectively in the final over. But it is too little too late. England register a 31-run win and move back into the top four. Sedate ending to what should have been a hard-hitting game. 

  • 22:43 (IST)

    OUT! Pandya was feeling the pressure - despite a boundary from Dhoni - and he goes for a big shot. Sub fielder James Vince takes the catch in the deep. Big big wicket this for the hosts. 

  • 22:24 (IST)

    FOUR! Pandya thrashes at a wide full toss and just about squeezes it past point to get a boundary. Some running between him and Dhoni sees them take 9 runs off the over. 

  • 22:13 (IST)

    OUT! Plunkett strikes but what a catch that was from Woakes. Pant goes for an aerial flick on the leg side and Woakes runs to his left then completes a diving catch at deep backward square leg. Match all but over now, surely! 

  • 22:08 (IST)

    They're not going down without a fight. Pant hits Wood for a boundary towards long-on to end the 38th over. Pandya then gets a boundary off Woakes in a similar field position. He follows that up with a slap through deep extra cover before smoking one through long-on again. Phew! What hitting. 

  • 21:54 (IST)

    OUT! Short and wide from Woakes - who rolls his fingers on it too - and Rohit can only edge one to Buttler behind the stumps. This is exactly what England needed at this stage. 

  • 21:51 (IST)

    FOUR & FOUR! Pant is going hard - even managing to send his bat flying on one occasion - but he finds the leg-side boundary with a well timed pull. He then slams one just over the covers that runs away for a four again. 10 come off the over, exactly what is needed. 

  • 21:29 (IST)

    Four and Four! Wide outside off and then a slower ball - both result in crisp and beautiful looking shots from Rohit Sharma that fetch him 8 runs. He's found his touch. 

  • 21:14 (IST)

    OUT: Virat Kohli has been dismissed and the Indian fans have gone silent. Outside off from Plunkett and Kohli gets a thick edge which finds James Vince at point. India two down now. 

  • 21:02 (IST)

    Four, Four and Four! Rohit Sharma has started to get a move on now and the crowd's enjoying it. First on the on side with an expansive pull before he frees his arms on the offside, twice in fact through the cover and point region. Excellent batting from him to complete a hat-trick of boundaries of Stokes

ICC World Cup 2019 | Bairstow Ton Helps England Beat India and Inch Closer to Semi-finals

Jonny Bairstow's solid century, combined with dazzling fifties from Jason Roy and Ben Stokes gave England a crucial 31-run victory over India in a high-octane 2019 World Cup encounter at Edgbaston on Sunday (June 30).

23:08 (IST)

Dhoni and Jadhav manage to get a six and a four, respectively in the final over. But it is too little too late. England register a 31-run win and move back into the top four. Sedate ending to what should have been a hard-hitting game. 

23:03 (IST)

Dhoni manages to get a boundary in the mid-wicket region but only a further three runs come off the over. India need 44 runs in the last over. Well... that isn't happening. 

22:59 (IST)

A sedate 47th over is followed by a sedate 48th over. This time 6 runs come off the over but the absolute lack of intent shown here has been baffling. Neither Dhoni nor Jadhav are able to connect. 

22:53 (IST)

Dhoni and Jadhav are employing a baffling of looking for singles when the asking rate is nearing 20. 5 runs come off the 47th over. The lack of intent is shocking even to the commentators. 

22:49 (IST)

Dhoni manages to get a boundary off the 46th over but only 9 runs come off it; nowhere near enough as India's required rate is over 15. 4 overs to go and India need 62 runs. 

22:43 (IST)

OUT! Pandya was feeling the pressure - despite a boundary from Dhoni - and he goes for a big shot. Sub fielder James Vince takes the catch in the deep. Big big wicket this for the hosts. 

22:36 (IST)

Dhoni manages to get a boundary off Woakes but the rest if the over yields only 3 more runs. England won't mind that in the slightest; they're inching closer towards a win. Archer then comes back with another economical over. 

22:28 (IST)

Adil Rashid comes back into the attack and bowls a wonderful over, conceding just 5 runs. Exactly what England need at this point. Dhoni and Pandya will need to work extra hard now. 

22:24 (IST)

FOUR! Pandya thrashes at a wide full toss and just about squeezes it past point to get a boundary. Some running between him and Dhoni sees them take 9 runs off the over. 

22:19 (IST)

Dhoni is the man who comes out to join Pandya. A win seems a little out of the question for India now but if Dhoni can conjure up some magic to compliment Pandya, anything is possible. 

22:13 (IST)

OUT! Plunkett strikes but what a catch that was from Woakes. Pant goes for an aerial flick on the leg side and Woakes runs to his left then completes a diving catch at deep backward square leg. Match all but over now, surely! 

22:08 (IST)

They're not going down without a fight. Pant hits Wood for a boundary towards long-on to end the 38th over. Pandya then gets a boundary off Woakes in a similar field position. He follows that up with a slap through deep extra cover before smoking one through long-on again. Phew! What hitting. 

22:01 (IST)

Pant definitely has a knack to go leg side. Will England manage to stick to such a strategy?

21:54 (IST)

OUT! Short and wide from Woakes - who rolls his fingers on it too - and Rohit can only edge one to Buttler behind the stumps. This is exactly what England needed at this stage. 

21:51 (IST)

FOUR & FOUR! Pant is going hard - even managing to send his bat flying on one occasion - but he finds the leg-side boundary with a well timed pull. He then slams one just over the covers that runs away for a four again. 10 come off the over, exactly what is needed. 

21:47 (IST)

Rohit brings up his century and he's going to want keep going from here on out. Plunkett's over is a decent one though, going for just 5 runs. Required run rate for India now at exactly 10 an over; these two will need to hit out soon. 

21:40 (IST)

Mark Wood completes another over, his sixth of the day and has also gone for six runs in the form of six singles shared between Rishabh Pant and Rohit Sharma. India are 183/2 after 34 overs and it's time for drinks! 

21:35 (IST)

Another good over for India as Plunkett goes for a few runs and Pant gets his first boundary. 11 runs to be precise with Pant driving through covers and beating Woakes in the deep. Both Rohit and Pant are running hard in between wickets and ensuring there isn't the pressure of dot balls. India are 177/2 after 33 overs.

21:31 (IST)

Good over for India after Rohit finds the fence twice against Mark Wood to take the pressure off a bit. The boundaries are followed up by three singles between Rohit and Pant to take India to 166/2 after 32 overs.

21:29 (IST)

Four and Four! Wide outside off and then a slower ball - both result in crisp and beautiful looking shots from Rohit Sharma that fetch him 8 runs. He's found his touch. 

21:26 (IST)

Pant seems a little nervous here and Rohit must help him calm down on his World Cup debut. Plunkett makes good use of that and hustles through a tidy over where he conceded two singles and a wide. India are 155/2 after 31 overs.

21:22 (IST)

Good bowling at the other end from Archer too to keep the pressure on the batsmen with a flurry of dot balls. Four dots after which India pick up four runs of two balls to take the score to 152/2 after 30 overs. Required rate at this point is 9.33. 

21:19 (IST)

Nervy Plunkett over for India as Rohit and Pant have a couple of moments of miscommunication after the Virat dismissal. But both survive thankfully and India are 148/2 after 29 overs.

21:16 (IST)
Everyone's shocked!
21:14 (IST)

OUT: Virat Kohli has been dismissed and the Indian fans have gone silent. Outside off from Plunkett and Kohli gets a thick edge which finds James Vince at point. India two down now. 

21:11 (IST)

England bring back Jofra Archer as they look to break this important partnership. Both Rohit and Virat are watchful and play Archer out without too much trouble and add four singles to the score. India are 144/1 after 28 overs.

21:07 (IST)

Rohit begins the next over against Adil Rashid in similar fashion to the previous one and sweeps him away with power for a boundary. Rashid however comes back well in the over and concedes just three more runs to finish off. India are 140/1 after 27 overs.

21:04 (IST)

Expensive over from Stokes as Rohit takes him to the cleaners to begin with three consecutive boundaries. Rohit then ends the over with a single to take India to 133/1 after 26 overs. 13 runs of the over.

21:02 (IST)

Four, Four and Four! Rohit Sharma has started to get a move on now and the crowd's enjoying it. First on the on side with an expansive pull before he frees his arms on the offside, twice in fact through the cover and point region. Excellent batting from him to complete a hat-trick of boundaries of Stokes

India vs England, ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 Match at Birmingham Highlights: As It Happened

India vs England Live Score, ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 ODI Match at Birmingham Latest Updates: Dhoni and Jadhav manage to get a six and a four, respectively in the final over. But it is too little too late. England register a 31-run win and move back into the top four. Sedate ending to what should have been a hard-hitting game.

India vs England in the ICC World Cup 2019 on June 30 (Sunday) will be broadcast on the Star Sports network and Live streaming will be available on Hotstar. The match will be played at Birmingham and will begin at 1500 HRS IST. You can also follow all the action on our live blog. (IND vs ENG).

PREVIEW: It was touted to be the battle of the big boys as India and England were tagged favourites going into the 2019 World Cup. But come Sunday, it will be a battle of survival for England as they look to keep their hopes alive of making it to the knockout stages when they take on Virat Kohli and boys at Edgbaston in their second last group game. On paper, the records are stacked in favour of India as the English outfit hasn't defeated them in World Cup encounters in the last 27 years, but then, cricket isn't a game played on paper. With their backs against the wall, Eoin Morgan and his boys can be expected to give it their all as they must win their match against India and then against New Zealand to make it to the semis. For India though, it will all be about keeping the momentum going as they are all but through to the knockout stages. They need just one point from three games to qualify and considering that their next two games after the England match are against Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, it shouldn't be a huge task, especially considering the form that the Men in Blue have shown.

The only concern for India would be the number four slot as Vijay Shankar has failed to make it his own after three attempts at that spot. While he was unbeaten for 15 in the first game against Pakistan, he managed 29 against Afghanistan before getting done for 14 against the West Indies on Thursday. Considering the importance of the position, the Indian team management could look at trying Dinesh Karthik at that position if they feel that Rishabh Pant isn't cut for the slot. Apart from that, it all looks good for the Indians as the top-order has done well and the bowlers have been impressive from the word go. M.S. Dhoni's slow knock against Afghanistan did see some pundits raising their voices, but the former India skipper silenced them with his knock against West Indies on a slow track at the Old Trafford on Thursday. In fact, he picked 16 runs from the last over of the innings to finish with an unbeaten 56 off 61 balls at an impressive strike rate of 91.80.

For England, it has been another round of poor shows after starting well. Coming into the World Cup, England were considered favourites and all-rounder Ben Stokes had told IANS that the tag had been earned with consistent performances over the years. But with seven of the nine games done with, the picture doesn't look too bright for the Three Lions. While they started off with a brilliant 104-run win over South Africa in the tournament opener, they were handed a blow by Pakistan in their very next game. The mercurial side led by Sarfaraz Ahmed beat the hosts by 14 runs in a thriller. Morgan's men came back strongly in the next three games as they beat Bangladesh by 106 runs, West Indies by 8 wickets and Afghanistan by 150 runs. But that is where the fortune took another turn as they lost to out of touch Sri Lanka by 20 runs. Chasing Sri Lanka's score of 232/9, all England could manage was 212 as Lasith Malinga bowled brilliantly to take the Island Nation home.

The loss saw England faced with a situation wherein they needed to win two of their three games against Australia, India and New Zealand. The Australians beat England by 64 runs and from here on, the Englishmen have a simple task. They must win against India and New Zealand. The absence of Jason Roy has been spoken about as one of the reasons for the team's poor show, but Roy alone cannot be the reason for a team doing so well over the last three years to suddenly flounder. It is a clear case of big stage nerves and Morgan's men must get their act right come Sunday.

Squads: England: Eoin Morgan (c), Moeen Ali, Jofra Archer, Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler (wk), Tom Curran, Liam Dawson, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, James Vince, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood

India: Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma, M.S. Dhoni, K.L. Rahul, Ravindra Jadeja, Kedar Jadhav, Dinesh Karthik, Hardik Pandya, Vijay Shankar, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav and Rishabh Pant
