The ODI World Cup 2023 hosts are set to lock horns with the reigning champions England in their next clash of the marquee ICC event. India, under the leadership of Rohit Sharma, are having a season of their dreams as they dominate the charts with an unbeaten streak of five matches in the current edition. England, on the other hand, are having a nightmare as they sit on the bottom second spot with only one win in the World Cup 2023.
Speaking of team updates, India all-rounder Hardik Pandya is likely to miss the upcoming game due to ligament tear he suffered in one of the previous fixtures in the ICC contest.
In their previous three matches of the multi-national tournament, India captain Rohit Sharma won two out of three tosses. England captain Jos Buttler, on the flip side, came on top of all three tosses in his side’s previous fixtures. Speaking of the forthcoming match, we think Sharma will win the toss war in the upcoming game.
Named as two of the most powerful cricket teams, 2019 winners, England and two-time champions India share an ODI rivalry of 106 matches. Out of those matches, India emerged victorious in 57 matches while England won 44. This makes it clear that India is a fairly stronger team.
In addition to this, the Asian giants have outdone themselves in recent times by winning all five matches they have played so far in the tournament. Considering everything, Rohit Sharma and Co. are clear favourites to win the forthcoming game.
Predicted Powerplay Score and Average First Inning Score
The Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow has been slated to host a total of five matches in the ODI World Cup 2023. Speaking of its overall record, the venue has hosted a total of seven ODI matches with the average first inning score of 226. Considering the score and big hitters that the teams have, we think the first inning score is likely to be around 270-290, while the powerplay score will be 40-45.
