Cricket World Cup U.S.A. TV: How to Watch England vs. India, Live Stream, Odds

Before the World Cup started, England's game against India was supposed to be a dress rehearsal for the two favorites ahead of the semi-finals.

For one of the teams, however, it will be anything but. Having wobbled against Pakistan and Sri Lanka, England's World Cup campaign was dealt a major setback by Australia on Tuesday—and a loss to India could extinguish it completely.

The loss left England on eight points, just one above Bangladesh and Pakistan, who will face each other on July 5. Their other games are against India and Afghanistan, respectively, which puts Pakistan in pole position to qualify for the semifinals at England's expenses.

The hosts' destiny is still in their own hands but they must win at least one of their two remaining games. Unfortunately for them, those games are against India and New Zealand—two of the teams above them in the table.

India is the only team yet to taste defeat in the tournament, but England captain Eoin Morgan remains confident his team can rediscover the form that propelled it to the top of the world rankings.

"We are in charge of how we go from here on in," he told BBC Test Match Special.

"We win two games, we definitely go through. It's a matter of producing a performance in one, if not both, of the next two games."

After sweeping opponents aside over the last two years, England has been found wanting when it mattered most. The defeat against Pakistan earlier this month was considered a minor blip, but losses against Sri Lanka and Australia within five days have highlighted much bigger issues.

India has no such issues, having won every game it has played so far bar the one against New Zealand, which was washed out due to adverse weather.

Here's everything you need to know ahead of Sunday.

When and where is the game?

England takes on India at Edgbaston Cricket Ground in Birmingham on Sunday, June 30, with play scheduled to start at 10:30 a.m. local time (5:30 a.m. ET). England might be hosting the tournament but this will feel like a home game for India, given the huge Indian ex-pat population in Birmingham.

TV channel and live stream

The game will be broadcast in the U.S. by Willow TV and Hotstar, with a live stream available via Sling TV.

The latter is one of the official partners of Willow TV and is available across various platforms such as Apple TV, iOS, Android TV, XBOX, Chrome TV, Fire TV and Roku.

Match odds

England might have lost the last two games while India is still unbeaten but for the bookmakers there's little between the two teams. According to Oddschecker, the hosts are 1/1 shot to win on Sunday, while India is a 4/5 favorite.


England and India arrive into the game in contrasting moods. The hosts' 64-run loss against Australia on Tuesday was much more painful than the margin suggested.

Having reeled Australia in after a difficult start, England's batting line-up crumbled for the second time in five days as Australia's bowlers dismantled the hosts' top order.

As he did against Sri Lanka, Ben Stokes was the only England batsman to stand up and be counted, departing for 89.

India, on the other hand, continued its march towards the semifinals by ending the West Indies' slim hopes of qualifying.

Virat Kohli scored 72 and MS Dhoni was 56 not out as the 2011 winners reached 268-7 after winning the toss, before bowling the West Indies out for a mere 143.
