Sharma says India must learn from England loss

Virat Kohli has notched another milestone in an incredible career

India captain Virat Kohli on Sunday scored his 54th ODI half century and by doing so the right-handed batsman became the first captain to score five consecutive fifties in a World Cup.

Many saw the team under Morgan as the strongest England side in a World Cup but defeats by Sri Lanka and Australia have intensified pressure on the hosts.

India, with 11 points from six games, are now placed second in the table, and need to win just one game of their remaining three matches to qualify for the semifinals.

After recent humbling losses to Australia and Sri Lanka - following an earlier defeat to Pakistan - it was essentially do or die for England against India and it delivered when it mattered most. "Last game, again, he came out, he looked really good, and he got a lovely ball from Kemar Roach", Kohli said during the pre-match press conference for the encounter against England. "To be honest I haven't seen what's been happening outside".

Two-times champions India, by contrast, will guarantee a place in the semi-finals if they win, although there are concerns they are too reliant on Kohli for runs.

'It is not my problem, to be honest, ' he said. To be a good quality side, you need to adapt to the situation that is in front of you.

Not only does Eoin Morgan's side need to beat India, something that no team has done so far in the competition, but they will also have to come out better against 2015 finalists, New Zealand in their last group game on Wednesday to advance to the final rounds.

The wicket at the ground was off-centre, meaning one boundary was noticeably shorter on one side than the other, and England routinely took advantage after deciding to bat first in a 31-run victory.

Bowlers led by Chris Woakes then bowled a disciplined line to choke India in the final overs despite a 138-run second-wicket stand between Sharma and skipper Virat Kohli. That's something we take a lot of pride in as a team, and I just want us to focus on that. They have to sort out their own issues themselves, I guess, ' he said.
