Entering into the match today, the stakes were much higher for England that they were for India and it showed in the way the hosts batted. In the process of giving India a target of 338, Johny Bairstow made a century while Ben Stokes scored 79.
India need to score 338 to beat England. #IND will need to chase down a record to win this game.— Nipun Chopra, PhD (@NipunChopra7) June 30, 2019
Would be the highest run chase in Workf Cup history. Possible on a flat pitch, but pretty unlikely.
A win for #IND would benefit Pakistan. #ENGvIND
Even as Shami and Bumrah tried their best, they couldn't help much and now the onus is on the batsmen to redeem the side. As we eagerly wait for India's innings, here are some tweets to pass time.
