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 98-6 (28) Livingstone 27, Woakes 10, Kuldeep 1-19 (6)

Kuldeep will come back on. While net run rate might not matter for England, it will matter to India, who will want to keep their hold at the top of the standings table.

Livingstone has gone for a slightly risky drive to a full ball but gets away with it.

Woakes hits a single from the final ball to move into double figures.

England 94-6 (27) Livingstone 25, Woakes 8, Jadeja 0-15 (5)

Woakes and Livingstone have just managed to rotate the strike a bit more against Jadeja, three runs from that over.

England 91-6 (26) Livingstone 23, Woakes 7, Shami 3-12 (6)

A murmer of excitement when England race through for a single.

Shami has continued to bowl, and starts the over with incredible figures of three for six from his five overs before this one.

Woakes has his first boundary with a lovely lofted shot into the off side.

Seven from that over, by far Shami’s most expensive.

England 84-6 (25) Livingstone 22, Woakes 1, Jadeja 0-12 (4)

Another over where England are just hanging on. Lots of defending and not many runs, three runs from it.

Sonia Twigg29 October 2023 15:05

England 81-6 (24) Livingstone 20, Woakes 0, Shami 3-5 (5)

Woakes defends down the ground first ball. And has successfully seen out the end of the over.

Liam Livingstone could count himself lucky after he was struck on the pad, not given and India chose not to review, had they done he would have been out.

That is a wicket maiden for Shami who has been unplayable here.

Sonia Twigg29 October 2023 15:02

Wicket! Ali out for 15! England 81-6

England have a new problem to contend with here, Shami is back into the attack and strikes immediately.

Moeen Ali has edged behind outside the off stump!

Shami has another and England are floundering.

Sonia Twigg29 October 2023 14:57

England 81-5 (23) Ali 15, Livingstone 20, Jadeja 0-9 (3)

Jadeja has continued to keep things tight here and cause problems.

But Ali and Livingstone have kept going and plugging away at this total.

Sonia Twigg29 October 2023 14:55

England 79-5 (22) Ali 14, Livingstone 19, Kuldeep 1-15 (5)

The first stroke of fortune for England, a miss-field brings a four and with that Livingstone has passed Malan’s total of 16 to become the highest scorer in this innings.

Sonia Twigg29 October 2023 14:51

England 72-5 (21) Ali 13, Livingstone 13, Jadeja 0-6 (2)

Jadeja really does rattle through his overs, he bowls quickly, some were almost 60mph.

After 20 overs England will just have to question how they’ve yet again got themselves in this situation.

Four runs from the over, and if they can survive for a bit there is so much time left in this match.

Sonia Twigg29 October 2023 14:48

England 68-5 (20) Ali 11, Livingstone 11, Kuldeep 1-8 (4)

Livingstone was completely undone by that last delivery, it beat the inside edge and just missed the stumps, that was a beautiful delivery.
