...
India play a rather insignificant third group game against Scotland tomorrow at 4:30 PM IST. 
...
With this loss, India are more or less out of the tournament. There's no way they can make it to the next round. They needed to win at least two games. A disappointing end, really. The first game could have been clinched and this was just an embarrassment. 
...
Despite the game being so lopsided, Amjyot Singh played all 40 minutes of the game. He registered 10 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists but no doubt, fatigue caught up with up at some point as he also recorded 10 turnovers for the game.
...
That's the FINAL WHISTLE!
...
India at 54.
...
England reach 100 points!
...
India with their highest quarter tally of the game, with 16 points but then too, they allow England to score 18 in very insignificant fourth quarter.
...
With around two minutes left in the game, India trails 38.
...
Really no silver linings in this game, unlike the Cameroon game. 
...
Really weird why Amjyot is clocking minutes in the game, with the game more or less done given the size of the lead.
...
All points just a consolation right now. India up to 46, with 9 in this quarter so far.
...
India begin with a 3 but it's really insignificant. Lead reduced to 37.
...
Once again, Amjyot Singh has played 10 minutes of the quarter and the team has gone nowhere. Just scoring 9 points and allowing 29. Surely Amjyot should be sitting in the final period, given the lead is at 40 points.
...
India tie their points tally from the second quarter, score 9 in the third period. 
...
The disastrous quarter continues. Only a minute left, India have only scored 7 points and have allowed 27. Trail by a huge unassialable margin of 42 points with just over a quarter to go. 
...
Make that 24 that India have allowed. India trailing right now by 44.
...
1It's been a terrible quarter again for India. Halfway into the quarter, India have only scored 2 points and given away 21.
...
Just two minutes in and England are on fire. Already outscored India 11-2 in the quarter so far. Lead at 57-26
...
Once again, England begin a quarter with a three-pointer. Increase their lead to 25 (49-24).
...
Third quarter is minutes away. Stay tuned!
...
India are out-rebounding their opponents 19-12 but they are simply lacking in number of field goals made. It's as simple as that. 
...
It's scary. The team's best player Amjyot has played all 20 minutes in the first half but still the team is down by 22 at the half. 
...
Against Cameroon, India led by 24 at the half. In this game, however, their trailing by 22 heading to the locker room. It's been a disappointing half, to say the least, especially the second quarter, where India only managed 9 points. 
...
Satnam knocks down a bucket but it hardly makes any dent in the England's huge lead, which now stands at 18.

...
England starting to solidify this lead, scoring four more unanswered. They now lead by 11 (30-19)
...
India register a couple of buckets via Satnam and Jeevanantham Pandi but the team simiply can't stop England from scoring. England score 4 points as well, maintaining their lead at 26-19.
...
England begin the second quarter with a 3, extending their lead to 7 (22-15)
...
Aravind was India's best player through the first quarter, scoring 7 points on 3-3 shooting including one 3-pointer.

Last four minutes of the quarter, India score four points and let England score five. No ground made. At the end of the first quarter, India trails England 15-19, despite starting 11-4.

On Day 3 of the 2018 Commonwealth Games, the Indian Men’s Basketball Team is set to face England in their second match of the group phase in Pool B. Just like India, England too lost their opening fixture to Scotland (65-78).

India suffered a gut-wrenching loss in their first game of the tournament, giving up a 24-point halftime lead to lose by nine points (87-96) against Cameroon. In what was a very winnable game, Amjyot Singh was the team’s best player as he recorded 23 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists on 44.0% shooting from the field. The team had other valuable contributions from Aravind Annadurai (15 P), Joginder Singh (14 P) and Justin Joseph (14 P) but India couldn’t knock down buckets when it mattered the most, which is when Cameroon were making their second half comeback.

This fixture is a must-win for India, if they want to make it to the Qualifying Finals of this tournament.

Other than Amritpal Singh, who has announced that he has suffered a knee injury, here’s the available roster for the game: Yadwinder Singh (Captain), Ravi Bhardwaj, Arvind Arumugam, Satnam Singh, Arshpreet Singh Bhullar, Aravind Annadurai, Akilan Pari, J Justin, P Jeevanantham, Joginder Singh, and Amjyot Singh. The team is headed by coach Rajinder Singh.
