England have set a challenging 338 run victory target for India

Birmingham:30/6/19:In the ICC Cricket World Cup, England have set a challenging 338 run victory target for India at Birmingham.

Earlier,  in their World Cup survival fight,  England elected to bat first and amassed 337 for 7 in the stipulated 50 overs. Openers Johnny Bairstow and Jason Roy became the first opening pair to put up a 100 plus run stand against India in this World Cup.

The first English wicket fell at 160 when Roy was out for 66.  Bairstow took 90 balls to reach his first ever World Cup century before getting out for  111. B.A.Stokes stitched 79.

For India,  Mohammed Shami was the most successful bowler who claimed 5 wickets, giving away 69 runs. Jasprit Bumrah and Kuldip Yadav shared one wicket each.
