England will try to make their chance better by winning this game and keep their hopes alive for the semi-finals. The Host are in good form and played really well in this World Cup so far but in the last two games they showed an unusual performance. They have pretty much balanced batting and bowling attack but need to do excel if they really want to qualify for the top four.
