Weather, Pitch and Venue Stats:

The pitch at Edgbaston, Birmingham gives an equal opportunity to the pacers and the spinners. Pacer would be difficult to play in the initial overs of the match, whereas, spinners will come in the game in the second half of the match. The weather is expected to to be sunny on the match day with few changes of rain.

India team news:

England team news:

  • Jason Roy who was seen in the nets ahead of the Australia match but didn’t feature against Aussies, but he is likely to replace James Vince against India.
  • Liam Plunkett might come in place of M Ali due to his swing bowling ability.

X factor:

Mohammad Shami came in to fill Bhuvneswar Kumar shoes and he did that perfectly. So far, M Shami has bagged four wickets in two games for India and would definitely trouble the English openers. He even has holds a good record against England where he has scalped 12 wickets in 74 over at an economy of 4.79. He could be an X-factor against England.

Ben Stokes scored some valuable run in his last two games. He has scored 82* in the defeat to Sri Lanka and then 89 against Australia. He even has the maximum wickets for England in the World Cup 2019. He has bagged six wickets at an economy of 4.59. He could be really dangerous with the ball as well.

ENG vs IND Dream11 Team Prediction
Fantasy picks from England: |

J Root

has an average of 57.00 against India with the highest score being 113* and at present, he is the leading run scorer for English in the World Cup 2019 with 432 runs in 7 innings at an average of 72.00. He can be your captain too.
Jofra Archer could be really lethal to the Indian batsmen as they haven’t played him much except in IPL this season. Archer has bagged 16 wickets in his first ever World Cup and holds an economy of 5.09. He could be your vice-captain.
Mark Wood has been exceptional with the ball in the World Cup. He has bagged 13 wickets in 6 innings at an economy of 5.07. Don’t miss out.
Fantasy picks from India:

Virat Kholi has an average of 44.48 against England with highest being 122 runs. In World cup 2019, Kohli has slammed 316 runs in five innings at an average of 63.20. You can choose him as your captain.
Even after coming at No 5, MS Dhoni holds an average of 45.58 against England with highest being 134 runs. He has got 146 runs at an average of 36.50 in the World Cup 2019 and would definitely make an impact with the bat and also standing behind the wickets.
Kuldeep Yadav would definitely create problems for England middle order. He has bagged 9 English wickets in just 30 overs at an economy of 4.93. Don’t miss him out.
Captain and Vice-Captain: V Kohli & M Shami
Captain and Vice-Captain: J Root & H Rashid
