India have been dominant in all departments, with their top order scoring heavily, their middle order providing stability and their bowlers picking up wickets at regular intervals.

England, on the other hand, are in a dire situation. The defending champions have lost four of their five matches and are languishing at the ninth spot with only two points.

England have been plagued by injuries, poor form and lack of consistency in their performance.
