Despite suffering three defeats in first five matches, Pakistan have managed to stay in the race for semi-finals after winning against South Africa and New Zealand.
On the other hand, England had won four out of their first five games, but consecutive defeats has added pressure on the home side.
England will be hoping to register a win against India to increase their chances to a book semi-final berth....
