India vs England: India hopes to maintain its domination at the ICC Cricket World Cup. In the 29th game, they play England, and a victory would guarantee them a spot in the semifinals. India defeated New Zealand on their way here, and their main players are doing well. After losing to Sri Lanka in the most recent match, England’s path to the semifinals appears arduous. To maintain their aspirations, they need to win this game by a significant margin.
England’s claim to be the greatest white-ball team hasn’t held up. They rank ninth on the points standings and have only triumphed once in their last five games. They need to play their best game to win here because they have a bad record against India when playing on Indian soil. With five straight victories, the Indians are riding high and will try to secure a spot in the following round. It would be intriguing to watch if England, the reigning champs, can halt the Indian might.
The 29th ODI match between India vs England will take place on October 29, 2023, at Ekana Sports City, Lucknow, Lucknow, India.

He plans to form alliances with KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer. Along with Mohammad Shami, Suryakumar Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja bring firepower to this batting lineup. They will want to take on the England bowlers in the final overs.
Since the England top order has struggled in most games, the bowling attack has performed well in the competition. As such, the team will look to Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammad Siraj to take early wickets. Considering that he took five wickets in the last game, Mohammad Shami will feel secure. The combination of Kuldeep Yadav and Jadeja strengthens this attack.

In their most recent encounter with Sri Lanka, Jos Buttler’s team suffered yet another humiliating defeat. They were defeated by eight wickets after being knocked out for 156 runs. The reigning champions have lost this championship in a humiliating fashion. To advance to the semifinals, they will need to rely on luck, and Buttler wants his team to put on a strong performance to regain their self-esteem.
Jonny Bairstow and Dawid Malan are starting, and the team will need a strong first-wicket stand from them to win this match. They will need runs from Joe Root, Jos Buttler, and Ben Stokes because the middle order has let the team down on multiple occasions. Chris Woakes, Moeen Ali, and Liam Livingstone must perform well in the lower middle order for the side to prevail.
In the competition, the bowling attack appears to be rusty. The Indian top-order is playing well, therefore Chris Woakes and David Willey will need to do well with the new ball for the team. In the middle overs, Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali need to use their experience. Mark Wood and Livingstone both play significant supporting roles.
Jos Buttler (c), Moeen Ali, Gus Atkinson, Jonny Bairstow, Sam Curran, Liam Livingstone, Dawid Malan, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Harry Brook, Ben Stokes, Reece Topley, David Willey, Mark Wood, Chris Woakes.
Players to watch out for:
It’s not been a great World Cup for the English side and playing against the most promising side of the tournament will be the biggest challenge. Jonny needs to step up in the toughest situation for the team.
Woakes the right-arm fast-medium bowler will be the player to watch out for.
Possible Playing XI:
Jos Buttler (c & wk), Jonny Bairstow, Dawid Malan, Joe Root, Ben Stokes, Liam Livingstone, Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, David Willey, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood

India vs England Toss Prediction:
In the last two India vs England games, the teams chasing the score won handily. In the second half of the game, the dew factor makes it challenging to handle the ball. The side that wins this toss will thus not think twice about bowling first.
India vs England Pitch Report:
As the game India vs England moves into the afternoon, the sky over Lucknow would be clear and the day would likely be hot and muggy. It will be a difficult pitch to bat on since hitters would have to get used to the slow surface. On this surface, the first team to bat would aim for 300 to feel at ease.
India vs England Match Report:
The last three games have seen the English batting lineup falter. They need to rise beyond the formidable obstacle the Indians will present in this game because they are lacking confidence. To prevent the Indian batters from taking the game by storm, the bowling attack needs to perform well. The top order has been playing exceptionally well, and the Indians are in the lead. The Indians are clearly up in this game based on their recent form.
