Cricket World Cup matchday 29: India bid to take a step closer to semi-final spot

UK Sport | Published:

Virat Kohli’s side are unbeaten in the tournament so far.

India will bid to edge one step closer to a semi-final spot when they take on West Indies at Old Trafford on Thursday.

Virat Kohli’s side, unbeaten in the tournament so far, lie third in the table and one point better off than fourth-placed England having played two games less.

The West Indies still have a mathematical chance of a top-four finish and will be determined to keep their hopes alive after their agonising five-run defeat to New Zealand in their last match.
