India will be aiming to keep their unbeaten run intact against the hosts England during their ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 clash at Edgbaston in Birmingham on Sunday. Meanwhile, the hosts England will be looking to keep their semifinal hopes alive after back-to-back losses against Sri Lanka and arch-rivals Australia respectively. 

There have been a lot of talks about Team India's new Orange jersey for this match. However, there is also another important thing and in fact, a huge moment for one of the promising young players. He is none other than Rishabh Pant. Yes, that's right. The young wicket-keeper batsman got the privilege of making his World Cup debut against the hosts. The 21-year-old was roped in as a replacement for India's most dependable batsmen in ICC tournaments, Shikhar Dhawan, who was ruled out of the ongoing showpiece event due to a thumb fracture.
