Watch England take on India live on Sky Sports Cricket World Cup from 9.30am on Sunday.

Meanwhile, a political war broke over the orange colour in the new jersey of Team India.

With Australia already having secured their semi-final berth, one more win for Team India in their remaining three league matches, would be enough for them for making it through to the knock out stage.

"They have brought him over here now, he is ready to go and, most importantly, he has played in England before so understands the conditions", Srikkanth said. Previously, India's T20 jersey was partly orange in colour. Australia emulated India in 2015.

Cape Town - Opening batsman Jonny Bairstow is unhappy with how quickly the media have jumped on the backs of an under-performing England side, specifically targeting Michael Vaughan. "It's a typical English thing to do, in every sport", he added.

Former star player and now critic Kevin Pietersen's line about England skipper Eoin Morgan being "scared" when batting had rattled the team too though the skipper put up a fearless face and dismissed the ridiculous charge.

They added that Vettel's face camera was "new but not significant as the evidence can be seen within other available video". I was in that meeting watching all the bosses of F1 and the FIA and all the Formula One teams and trying to get involved.

Kohli, who has scored four half-centuries so far at the World Cup, is yet to score a century at the tournament this time and has England in his sights when they take on each other at Birmingham.

India and Australia have been made joint favourites by bookmakers and placed around the 2-1 mark for the cup ahead of England who have drifted out to almost 4 to 1. Will the colours play any role in Sunday's game.

A second jersey is required by India as part of ICC's new ruling which requires the the team that has been drawn away to wear a different coloured jersey to the team that has been drawn at home. The men in blue will go orange for their "away" jersey with a strip of blue around the collar.

Interestingly, some opposition members had slammed the BJP-led NDA government for "saffronising" the Team India jersey.

Writing in his column in The Guardian, Ali said that Indian captain Virat Kohli will know that he is out to get to him.
