However, England hasn’t been able to have a successful run of play in the competition. The team enters the match fresh off a defeat to Sri Lanka in their previous encounter.

Pitch Report for Ekana Cricket Stadium:
The pitch at Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow is renowned for being bowler-friendly. This is a great place for spin bowlers to bowl since they get more help than pacers. As a result, the hitters will try to start the inning slowly and pick up speed later. Choosing to bowl first could prove to be a prudent move.
