India vs England, Bengaluru

India is going to play its second match in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 on Sunday against England. The match will be played at M.Chinnaswamy stadium in Bangalore. Both the teams played only one match each in the tournament and won them. India played its first match against Bangladesh and won it comfortably by posting a big score on the board. But the bowling performance of the Indians is not very impressive as they let the Bangla tigers to score freely and get to a situation that anything under 300 could be easily won by them. The bowling and fielding are the areas India has to improve and move forward into the next match. Sehwag, the hero for India in the last match is suffering from an injury and is recovering fast for tomorrow’s match.

On the other side England faced a tough challenge against the Dutch team. The match between England and Netherlands came very close that at a certain time it was thought that England might loose. But the English team somehow fought with Bopara playing well at the end of the match when England were facing a high required rate to win the match. But tomorrow’s match between the two teams will be quite interesting and is expected to be a certain thriller. There is growing demand in fans about the tickets available for the match. To meet this demand the ICC has decided to sell the tickets online which were blocked for Kolkata and English fans. But as there is less interest among these fans in coming to Bengaluru from Kolkata the ICC decided to sell these tickets online to meet the requirements of the fans. The India vs England match will be played at Bengaluru from 2:30 pm (9:00 GMT). The live match will be broadcasted on Star Cricket and Star Sports.
