India is placed on second on the points table with 11 points and bangladesh is placed on seventh place with 7 points. Shakib Al Hasan has already impressed everyone with his performance in this world cup and on the other hand Rohit Sharma, Mohd Shami and Jasprit Bumrah has been excellent so far.

India's unbeaten streak in the tournament was broken by England in their last match as they defeated them by 31 runs. India is currently at the second position of the teams standing with 11 points in seven matches. The Men in Blue have to win at least one match to get to the knock out stage.

In case, Sri Lanka somehow manages to win their next two matches including one against Windies, then they will move to ten points. Apart from winning their games, they have to hope for the loss of Pakistan, England and Bangladesh in their upcoming fixtures.

After opting to bat first, England racked up 337 runs on the scoreboard which they defended easily to secure a 31-run victory over India. Rohit Sharma scored a brilliant century, his third in the edition of the premier tournament. However, Sharma's 102 and Kohli's 66 was not enough for the Indian side to chase the target.
