Match 38 of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 will witness a battle between two favourites England and India at Edgbaston, Birmingham. England were in a pretty good position earlier. But two consecutive defeats against Sri Lanka and Australia made their place a little weak for the semi-finals. They are currently at fifth position with four wins from seven games. On the other hand, India placed at second with five wins from six games; where the one against New Zealand was washed out. It would be interesting to see whether England could win the game or India will be able to maintain their winning momentum on. Let’s have a look at the ENG vs IND Dream 11 Predictions.
No injury news from the Indian camp. Jason Roy could be back in the action for England. But their pace spearheads Jofra Archer likely to miss the game.
Predicted Playing 11
England: Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, Moeen Ali, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood

Weather and pitch report
The weather will be clear and fans can enjoy a full 50-over game.
Both the teams have met 7 times in the history of ICC World Cup; where both the teams won 3 times and the rest went on a tie. It would be interesting to see which team will increase their winning percentage in today’s game.
In the ENG vs IND Dream 11 predictions team for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 match, MS Dhoni and Jonny Bairstow have been named the wicketkeeper, keeping their recent form in mind, though Bairstow is not their regular wicketkeeper, he can give a flying start to his team’s innings. On the other hand, Dhoni has been giving stability in the middle-order and scoring constantly and he is terrific with the glovework as well.
Three batsmen have been selected on this Dream 11 team, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Joe Root. Rohit Sharma becomes the obvious choice for the opener as he has been in a great form, scoring 338 runs in the five matches so far at an average of more than 80 with two centuries and a half-century.
Virat Kohli becomes another automatic choice because of his prolific form as he has already scored 316 runs in the five innings, including four fifties. From England, it has to be Joe Root, who has become a threat to their opponent for his performances. He has already scored two centuries in this World Cup so far and expected to do well in their must-win game.
The Dream 11 team also consists of two all-rounders, named Hardik Pandya and Moeen Ali. Hardik Pandya has been in terrific form with both bat and ball and has taken five wickets so far. He played an important role against West Indies and Pakistan with the bat and has the ability to break partnerships in crucial moments for his team.
On the other hand, Moeen Ali’s big-hitting abilities and picking up crucial wickets at an important time is known to all. Along with Pandya, his inclusion is also mandatory in the ENG vs IND Dream 11 Predictions team. Both of them are doing well and that certainly proved beneficial for the team.
Four bowlers have been named in the ENG vs IND Dream 11 predictions team, named Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Liam Plunkett and Mark Wood. Shami came in the place of injured Bhuvneshwar Kumar. He left his mark with 8 wickets in just 2 matches which included a hat-trick against Afghanistan.
Jasprit Bumrah, on the other hand, is the first choice for any team because of his economical spell. He has 9 wickets in his name so far from 5 matches. Mark Wood is England’s second-highest wicket taker with 13 wickets from 6 games while Plunkett played in 3 games where he took 4 wickets so far. With this form, they become the obvious choice for the Dream 11 predictions team
Captain and vice-captain
Virat Kohli and Joe Root have been chosen the captain and vice-captain of the Dream 11 team respectively.
