That's all from us here at Sportskeeda! Do join us tomorrow as Sri Lanka take on West Indies in a bid to stay in the hunt for the fourth and final semi-final spot! 

Till then, this is Shashwat Kumar signing off! Goodbye!
Morgan: "We had an outstanding day ever since we won the toss. Roy and Jonny at the top were brilliant. The partnership at the top took us to a great total. The period between 11-20 in our batting innings proved to be the difference. We took on their spinners and that worked. We knew the wicket was becoming more difficult to bat on and hence, I was not too worried during India's chase. I was quite happy with how India played at the end. Liam has been brilliant whenever called upon and he was outstanding. He had a really good day out. Every game at the World Cup is difficult and I expect that to continue."
Kohli: "Every team has lost a game here and there. We need to take it into our stride and accept that. We are playing good cricket and we need to maintain that positive feeling. They were a lot more clinical in their execution. The toss was not a massive factor. The wicket was flat and our batting needed to be more clinical. Chahal and Kuldeep could have been a little smarter with their lines but with one short boundary, things were harder. We could have restricted them to 15 more but we were happy at the half-way mark. If the dismissals didn't happen when they did, we would have been in a good position. When Pant and Pandya were in there, we felt we had a good chance. But credit has to go to England. MS was trying really hard to get the boundaries but it didn't come off. We will have to sit down and discuss what went wrong and improve for the next game."
At the end of the day, England's ability to hit the bigger shots put the target beyond India's reach. The hosts hit 13 sixes in comparison to India's one and that is one statistic the visitors would do well to rectify. After all, one doesn't want to lose a crunch knock-out game for a lack of six-hitting power. 
Jonny Bairstow is the Player of the Match!
Bairstow: 
"It was important that we set a platform. We were just reacting to each ball. Spending time with VVS helped me in that regard. They bowled well up front but we capitalised when we could. The closest to a complete team performance we have had so far. New Zealand have had a good World Cup but we will be looking to build on this victory."
India finish with 306 and they fall 31 runs short!
England have convincingly thumped India despite the margin of victory not saying so. In fact, that only flatters India, who were quite dire with the willow in hand, especially at the start and at the death. 

The English started a little circumspectly in the first innings but they had the power of Bairstow and Roy to call upon. The duo conjured a magical partnership at the top and that set the foundation for Stokes and Buttler to apply the finishing touches. 

India, meanwhile, crawled at snail's pace in the opening ten overs and that really set the tone for the rest of the game. Virat and Rohit popped up with handy contributions but both ended with strike rates below 100. As for their middle order, Pant inspired in bits and Pandya did so a little more frequently yet by the time they came to the crease, they already had a herculean task in front of them. With regards to Dhoni, the scorecard might paint a pretty picture but in truth, he was pretty shambolic. 

The old ailments regarding India's ability to hunt down 300-plus totals has resurfaced again and they need to find a tonic soon, especially with the business end of the tournament approaching. As for England, they got the victory they were crying out for and another win would assure them of a semi-final spot.
Over 50 IND: 306/5(RR 6.12) Bowler: C Woakes Summary: 6 . 1 4 . 1 |
49.6 Chris Woakes to Kedar Jadhav. Yorker, down leg side on the back foot working, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Stokes.
49.5 Chris Woakes to Kedar Jadhav. Back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot pulling, to short leg for no runs, fielded by Woakes.
49.4 FOUR! Chris Woakes to Kedar Jadhav. Off cutter back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed in the air under control past deep backward point for 4 runs.
49.3 Chris Woakes to MS Dhoni. Off cutter short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Stokes.
49.2 Chris Woakes to MS Dhoni. Length ball, to leg on the front foot Slog, mis-timed to deep mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Stokes.
49.1 SIX! Chris Woakes to MS Dhoni. Back of a length, middle stump on the front foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs.
Dhoni hits India's first six of the innings!
The above embodies the poor state of the Indian display. Coming back to the shot, it was an old-fashioned hoick over mid-wicket which just beat the fielder at square leg. 
Over 49 IND: 294/5(RR 6.00) Bowler: J Archer Summary: . 4 1 1 1 . |
48.6 Jofra Archer to Kedar Jadhav. Short, outside off stump on the back foot hooking, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Buttler.
India's approach today has been perplexing to say the least. First, Rohit and Virat let the chase get big on them an then Dhoni and Jadhav have contrived to do what they have done. Surely the Indians could have gone down fighting if going down was the only choice?
48.5 Jofra Archer to MS Dhoni. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Steer, to backward point for 1 run, fielded by Root.
48.4 Jofra Archer to Kedar Jadhav. Yorker, off stump on the back foot working, to mid on for 1 run.
48.3 Jofra Archer to MS Dhoni. Slower ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, to deep point for 1 run, fielded by Bairstow.
48.2 FOUR! Jofra Archer to MS Dhoni. Slower length ball, off stump on the front foot Slog, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs, mis-fielded by Stokes.
Dhoni with a four!
Dhoni clubs a full delivery past mid wicket for four. It is certainly a case of too little, too late.
48.1 Jofra Archer to MS Dhoni. Slower ball back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot pulling, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Buttler.
Over 48 IND: 287/5(RR 5.98) Bowler: M Wood Summary: 1 1 1 1 1wd . 1 |
47.6 Mark Wood to MS Dhoni. Slower ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, to deep square leg for 1 run.
India haven't covered themselves in any glory with this chase. They are set to fall well short of the target and unfortunately, a major chunk of it is due to a lack of intent. Poor cricket by India. Very poor. 
47.5 Mark Wood to MS Dhoni. Length ball, to leg down the track driving, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Buttler.
47.5 Wide Mark Wood to MS Dhoni. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Leave, Left to wicketkeeper for 1 run, fielded by Buttler.
47.4 Mark Wood to Kedar Jadhav. Slower ball back of a length, off stump backing away cutting, to third man for 1 run, fielded by Archer.
47.3 Mark Wood to MS Dhoni. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, to deep square leg for 1 run.
