CWC 2019 Match 38 – England vs India Fantasy Preview

With Pakistan winning against Afghanistan and Australia beating New Zealand, Australia still remains the only team to quality to the ICC 2019 World Cup semi-finals and suddenly, this tournament is wide open. Everyone wants India to beat England now in Game 38 today which still keeps countless opportunities open. Considering England have lost their last two games and India is still the only unbeaten team in the competition, the latter is a clear favourite.

However, England is one of the best ODI teams in the world at the moment, having also given Indian trouble in the sub-continent. In CWC 2019 so far, India have 5 wins in 6 games while England has slipped out of the top 5 with 4 wins in 7 games and this is a must-win for them.

  • 2 CWC 2019 matches here – both have been won batting second.
  • Both those games saw 240-odd totals.
  • England have won 22 of their 38 ODIs at this ground.
  • India have won 7 of their 10 ODIs at this ground.
  • Virat Kohli here – 243 runs in 5 ODIs (dismissed only once).


With the ball, Jofra Archer has quietly climbed up the wicket-takers charts at CWC 2019, with 16 wickets in 7 games so far while Mark Wood is the next best with 13 wickets in this tournament. Archer’s surprise bounce and pace could be a surprise factor and you should pick him while leg-spinner Adil Rashid could also be an important part of the team today. While he only has 7 wickets in the tournament, he has 10 wickets in just 3 ODIs at this ground in the past.

The next must-have in your fantasy picks is Ben Stokes. The all-rounder is back to his most destructive best and it has been brilliant to watch him take control in the last couple of games, scoring 82* and 89 and also bagging a wicket. With the bat, Joe Root has been England’s best this tournament with 432 runs, 2 centuries and 3 fifties. Against India, he has 684 runs in 15 ODI innings, averaging 57! Jason Roy may find his way back in for James Vince, if fit.


Will India replace Vijay Shankar with Ravindra Jadeja? Ideally, they shouldn’t. Shankar has scores of 15*, 29 and 14 but he’s just one knock away from making a statement. If India shows the faith in him, he should repay it with a good innings. With Stokes taking one all-rounder slot, I’ll be adding Shankar and Hardik Pandya to my all-rounder list too, with the latter having 142 runs and 5 wickets in CWC 2019 so far.

Virat Kohli became the first Indian captain and third Indian overall to score 4 successive fifties in the World Cup, with scores of 82, 77, 67, 72 so far in CWC 2019, so include him in your Nostragamus (sign-up with “READSCOOPS” for Rs.100 FREE) fantasy picks as he isn’t far away from a century. With the ball, Mohammed Shami has shown brilliant rhythm since his return to the side with two 4-wicket hauls and he will be one of the first names in my fantasy side today.
