Ahead of today’s game, former England skipper Naseer Hussain had exclusively asked Pakistan fans to name the team they are supporting. Much to everyone’s surprise, Pakistan declared India as their favourite team with some head-turning replies. India so far have won five of the six league games with one washout. With 11 points from six games, India are currently placed second in the points tally behind Australia.
On the other hand, fifth-placed England have eight points from seven games and will play New Zealand in their final league stage match. Pakistan currently placed fourth moved ahead of England after beating Afghanistan on Saturday. Today clash between India and England is a must-win situation for England who are wobbling badly after two straight defeats to Sri Lanka and Australia.
