England have slumped to yet another heavy defeat, this time collapsing in a run chase as India claim victory by 100 runs to maintain their flawless start to their Cricket World Cup.

The defending World Cup champions have lost four matches in a row, are all but eliminated and had no answers to the bowling of Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah. They both starred in the powerplay as England collapsed from 30 without loss to 39 for four and were unable to recover and even get close to the total.

India, meanwhile, have been outstanding, Rohit Sharma’s side have won every game to justify their position as favourites with real quality and depth with the bat and ball.

Liam Livingstone top-scored with 27 in a sorry-looking scorecard for England, but that should take nothing away from India who were exceptional.

The hosts all but secured their place in the semi-finals with a win and maintained the form shown in the win against 2019 runners-up New Zealand. Follow all the updates from the match below and the latest tips and betting preview here.


India beat England by 100 runs

Here is a match report from Lucknow:

England were counting the cost of their worst ever World Cup campaign after they flopped to a fifth defeat in six games against hosts India.

Despite a rocky history in one-day cricket the defending champions of 2019 have plumbed new depths over the last four weeks, racking up their most losses at a single tournament and an unprecedented sequence of four-in-a-row.

A 100-run thrashing in Lucknow, where they were skittled for a paltry 129, leaves them rooted to the foot of the table in 10th place and on course to embarrassingly miss out on the 2025 Champions Trophy.

Woakes: “I don’t think we’re embarrassed because you put yourself out there to be judged every day in training and performing for England, we’re over the moon to be able to put the shirt on.

“I think frustrating is the right word for it, because there are world-class players in there who have done it in world cups before, it is hard to put your finger on why such a talented group of players haven’t been able to put it right.”

Woakes added: “We’ll be turning up to every game from now on trying to win. 2015 was a low point back then I thought we were playing an old-school brand of cricket.

“At the moment we’ve not got the confidence in winning games of cricket.

“If you could bottle that up you could see a whole different team turn up against Australia.

“At the half way point the confidence was there and the feeling that we could go and do well, but we didn’t.”

Woakes continued: “I think if we could buy some confidence at the minute we’d spend a lot of money.

“When you’ve not got confidence you can play some bad shots, I think Ben was trying to counteract Shami by playing some more attacking shots but that didn’t work out.

“First and foremost we need to build partnerships to get close to that score on what was a difficult pitch and we couldn’t do that.”

On confidence loss: “I think that’s top elite level sport, you have no god-given right to perform at this level, World Cups are incredibly hard to win, some of us were here in 2019 and 2022.

“You have to have every part of your game ticking, and for us it’s been the whole team has not played well.

“It’s certainly low in the dressing room.”

Chris Woakes to Sky Sports: “Disappointing again I suppose, at the half way stage we thought we were in a good position.

“We haven’t performed as well as we’d like with the ball in this tournament so it was nice to put that right and we fielded exceptionally as well.

“The wicket wasn’t easy to bat on but under the lights it felt a bit easier. From 30 for none and losing two in two balls and then another couple and it’s hard to come back from that.”

Jasprit Bumrah to Sky Sports: “I was not thinking about the hat-trick but just trying to be in the moment and think what was working for me.

“We anticipated the new ball would do something, we knew that when the temperature falls down there might be a little bit of help with the swing.”

On Shami: “He’s outstanding, all the legends I feel like he’s always been quite calm, but the way that he was bowling it was like he was playing a Test match, I am really happy with the way that he was going.”

Rohit Sharma: “It’s not something that you see every day, when you have a pair like that you know when you start your innings that you have to take two wickets and when you have them you can put pressure back on the batters.

“They exploited the conditions pretty well and I thought they put the ball in the right areas.”

On his bowling attack: “We’ve got a good balance there, a couple of good spinners and the seamers have a lot of experience of playing in this conditions, if I look a the options I have when it comes to bowling I have a fair bit.

Jos Buttler continued: “Some top players and we’re a long way short of our best.

On the bowling innings, he said: “It was excellent, a great start in the powerplay, the guys found some movement and there was a bit of bounce, the ground fielding was as good as it’s been, today felt like a day it was all turning round, but the way we batted we didn’t bat that up.

On the Champions Trophy going to the top eight teams: “We’re aware of that and it just proves that we have a lot to play for.”

Jos Buttler: “Very disappointed, I think at the half way stage chasing 230 we fancied ourselves and same old story.

“A gut feel that we wanted to chase, that was the best we’ve been with the ball in the tournament.

“Personally I felt like i wanted to soak some pressure up and come through that phase, but it’s about executing your skill, at that stage there wasn’t scoreboard pressure, but we’re just falling short whichever way we’re doing it at the moment.”

India return to the top of the table with six wins from their six matches, South Africa might have a higher net run rate, but if the host nation keep winning all of their matches, it will not matter and they will finish top of the standings.
