Indian cricketers to sport orange jersey in England clash

India, the only unbeaten side so far in the tournament, will not be expected to relax against an England side which humiliated them at home on a number of occasions in the past. The Pakistani fans have kept the rivalry aside and want India to uproot England from the event as it would help the Sarfaraz Ahmed-led side enter the semi-finals smoothly.

Sri Lanka can not reach the Cricket World Cup semi-finals after England's win over India left them unable to finish in the top four. There's bright sunshine, the baked pitch on the drier side with promise of more turn than usual. A tetchy media appearance following defeat to Australia, during which he suggested some pundits were willing the team to fail, hinted that he was working himself into a siege mentality that could yet pay dividends, even if former England captain Michael Vaughan did not see it that way. I noted Kevin Pietersen's comments as well that he was scared, which was interesting.

"Losing an early wicket always puts you under pressure, and we lost KL right at the start, and they bowled pretty well in the first 10 overs", said Sharma.

Mohammad Shami took to Twitter and said he is ready for the next match. "Rather than thinking about opposition, it is better that we focus on our own skills".

"They mixed the short ball and the slower ball and forced us to hit at the longer boundaries which was a lesson for us for our next game".

The home team made the most of favourable conditions after winning the toss and batting, bouncing back from recent lacklustre efforts to post 7/337. Smith had achieved the same feat in the 2015 World Cup.

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.

Roy has been crucial to England's rise to the top of one-day rankings and Morgan said he would risk playing the 28-year-old unless it meant long-term injury for the opener.
