Originally, this match was scheduled at Eden Gardens in Kolkata, but the International Cricket Council moved the venue due to delay in renovation work at Eden Gardens. Group ‘B’ teams, India and England, will play their second match in the ongoing tournament.

Two days before the match between India and England, Indian in-form batsman Virender Sehwag survived an injury scare during the practice session on Friday after being hit on his ribs by Indian bowling spearhead Zaheer Khan. Meanwhile, Sehwag has been declared fit to play.

At the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore, Dhoni may play with two specialist spinners. It is likely that Piyush Chawla may come in the playing XI in place of Sreesanth. And if Dhoni wins toss, he’s likely to opt bat first.

Team India won against Bangladesh in the inaugural match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 by 87 runs. During the match team India scored 370 runs with the help of brilliant hundreds by Virender Sehwag and Virat Kohli. Dashing Indian opener scored 175 runs in 140 deliveries, whereas young gun Virat Kohli scored 100 not out. Indian pacer Munaf Patel claimed four Bangladeshi wickets for 48 runs.

The English team started their Cricket World Cup 2011 journey with a win against the Netherlands. In a close fight in the orange city Nagpur, England defeated Netherlands by 6 wickets with 8 balls remaining. After batting first the Dutch team set the target of 293 runs for the English team.

Team India and England met last time in a world cup match during the 2003 Cricket World Cup at Durban in South Africa. In that match Ashish Nehra picked six wickets for 23 runs and India beat England by 82 runs.

Two teams have played 71 times with each other, and India have won 38 matches and England 30.
