India will be locking horns against the hosts England in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 clash at Edgbaston on Sunday. Team India are the only undefeated side in the tournament. They are at the second spot in the points table with five wins in six matches and 11 points on the board. Meanwhile, England are at the fourth position with four wins in seven games and three losses. They have eight points in their tally. The hosts will now need to win their last two encounters against India and New Zealand respectively to be assured of a spot in the semis while Virat Kohli & Co. need just one point to consolidate their top four spot.

English skipper Eoin Morgan won a crucial toss and elected to bat first. For India, Rishabh Pant is all set to make his World Cup debut. Pant will be replacing all-rounder Vijay Shankar. Meanwhile, England will be boosted by the return of explosive opening batsman Jason Roy from an injury.

Here are the Playing XI of both sides.

England have failed to get the better of India in World Cups since the 1992 edition. India were successful against the three-time finalists in 1999 and 2003 respectively. The last time these two sides met in 2011, the game had gone all the way down to the wire and ended in a tie.
