New Zealand On Top, India Third

New Zealand On Top, India Third

The average swing generated by bowlers sits at 0.649°, compared to 1.130 in the Caribbean in 2007 and 0.993 in Australia and New Zealand in 2015 World Cup.

"I know we've played like this for four years now, and there's been some remarkable things, but to do it in a World Cup game speaks volumes about how Eoin wants the team to play and the values we've kept going throughout those four years".

What works in England's favour is that nobody else can win six matches in a row, so this keeps the home team in the green zone.

The ICC has said in a press release that ball has not swung as much as expected at this edition of the World Cup.

What happens if they win just one more game? On Tuesday, Eoin Morgan's team plays defending champions Australia.

Jofra Archer has given England's attack a new dimension with his raw pace, taking 15 wickets so far to top the charts at the World Cup alongside Australia's Mitchell Starc and Pakistan's Mohammad Amir.

England will need to win at least one, and possibly two, of their remaining group games if they are to qualify for the semi-finals. This was then followed by two more back-to-back defeats against Sri Lanka and New Zealand respectively.

Roy sustained the injury while fielding in the match against West Indies in Southampton on June 14.

Virat Kohli has gone on record, time and again during WC19 to state that his team is not going to take any match lightly.

How does the loss affect England? This comes after the Afghanistan squad failed to reach the paltry target of 225 runs in 50 overs at Rose Bowl Cricket Ground.

Sri Lanka's total of 232-9 did not appear to leave England, yet to win the World Cup, with an especially stiff chase on Friday. Other results will have to go their way. Sri Lanka, who won the match by 20 runs, have suddenly opened the tournament which was, in a way, meandering towards the predictable. Today they play Afghanistan, who beat them at last year's Asia Cup, India and Pakistan.

Pakistan, after beating South Africa by 49 runs at Lord's, have five points.

England take on Australia at Lord's on Tuesday before facing India at Edgbaston on Sunday and New Zealand in Durham three days later. "If Australia can hold their ground against the onslaught and put pressure back on England, that'll be key". And their next three games in this WC are against these three teams!

Aside from their century stand in their only victory, over Afghanistan, South Africa's opening average is just 27. Each could do damage to others, provided they really lift their games. But Avishka Fernando playing in his first World Cup match and Kusal Mendis repaired the early damage and following their dismissals it was left to another experienced campaigner Angelo Mathews (85 not out) to see his team to a decent total on a pitch that was beginning to play slower and slower.
