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.


England 67-5 (19) Ali 10, Livingstone 11, Jadeja 0-3 (1)

Jadeja has been brought on after Siraj was unable to find a breakthrough.

Again it was a tight over, just as expected from the spinner, and just the three runs from it.

England 64-5 (18) Ali 9, Livingstone 9, Kuldeep 1-7 (3)

Kuldeep, who extinguished any residual hopes that England might salvage the situation when he took the wicket of Buttler, is back on for his third over.

Kuldeep has bowled another tight over, just three from it.

England 61-5 (17) Ali 8, Livingstone 7, Siraj 0-33 (6)

It’s hard to even know where England go from here other than just stay in damage control and try and do the best they can.

The slip is back in for Livingstone, Siraj is still without a wicket but must be fancying his chances here.

Livingstone has a boundary with the final ball of the over! I can’t remember quite how long it’s been since the last one.

Sonia Twigg29 October 2023 14:35

Wicket! Buttler out for 10! England 52-5

Kuldeep strikes! And that’s the last big wicket left!

Buttler has played all around that which jagged back in a long way and onto the stumps.

There was turn and bounce and England are becoming undone.

Sonia Twigg29 October 2023 14:26

England 51-4 (15) Buttler 9, Ali 6, Siraj 0-25 (5)

Ali and Buttler are in survival mode here and that’s exactly what the situation has called for.

Five runs from that Siraj over and no risks taken more importantly.

Sonia Twigg29 October 2023 14:24

England 47-4 (14) Buttler 6, Ali 5, Kuldeep 0-2 (1)

There was a brief pause for a drinks break which came with a light show, not sure that will be what either side wanted, and especially England.

There will now be a change of pace with Kuldeep Yadav coming on to bowl. There were two runs from the over.

Sonia Twigg29 October 2023 14:21

England 45-4 (13) Ali 4, Buttler 5, Siraj 0-21 (4) - need 185 to win

The batters have just stayed there for a bit and weathered the storm as best they can.

Three from the over, and that was the most England have managed for a while.

Sonia Twigg29 October 2023 14:12

England 42-4 (12) Buttler 4, Ali 3, Shami 2-5 (4)

Shami has been unplayable as far as England have been concerned so far, and he will have another chance to add to his wicket tally here.

Ali hits upwards, but just short of mid off and he will pick up a single.

One run from that over.

Sonia Twigg29 October 2023 14:07

England 41-4 (11) Buttler 4, Ali 2, Siraj 0-19 (3) - need 189 runs to win

Siraj has been brought back on to bowl at the end of the powerplay.

Just the one run from that over.

Sonia Twigg29 October 2023 14:03

England 40-4 (10) Ali 1, Buttler 4, Shami 2-4 (3)

Moeen Ali defends and prevents a hat-trick.

He is off the mark with a dab down to third man. This has all gone wrong for England after their best bowling performance of the tournament.
