The 29th match of the ICC World Cup 2023 will see England taking on India on Sunday, October 29 at Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium, Lucknow.
The Men in Blue have been on a winning streak in the ongoing 2023 World Cup, winning five consecutive matches. They are currently second in the points table with 10 points and are determined to make it six wins in a row to regain the top spot.
On the other hand, England’s performance in the 2023 World Cup has been lacklustre. With just one win in five matches, they find themselves at the bottom of the points table. Their semi finals hopes are almost dashed, and they must be looking to salvage some pride by winning these few games.
However, before heading into this game, let’s take a look at the pitch report, and ground stats of the Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium, Lucknow:
IND vs ENG: Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium, Lucknow
At Ekana Stadium, the pitch is well-suited for batting, and it offers opportunities for spinners to make an impact. Fast bowlers will have to focus on their line and lengths to be effective. Historically, teams winning the toss and opting to bowl have had the upper hand, so the toss-winning team is expected to choose to field. Scoring between 300-310 runs would pose a serious challenge here.
