India vs England: preview 

At polar opposite ends of the table, the undefeated India meet crushed reigning champions England in Lucknow today in a 2023 Cricket World Cup group match. But England showed glimpses of their old selves with the ball, restricting the hosts to a very mediocre 229/9 from their 50 overs.

India really have earned that imperious, unblemished record in their home tournament. In wins against Australia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh and New Zealand, they've barely had to get out of first gear. The showdown last Sunday against the Blackcaps was supposed to be where they were going to face their sternest test, but they strolled to a comfortable four wicket-win as Virat Kohli and co easily chased down the 273 target.

With Kohli, KL Rahul and captain Rohit Sharma all scoring runs for fun and a rejuvenated Jasprit Bumrah formidable with the ball, it's hard to know who's going to be able to stop them in their remaining four group games.

Not even the most ardently optimistic England fan would imagine that it will be Joss Buttler's sorry band of men. Following losses to New Zealand, Afghanistan and South Africa, they needed to turn things around last Thursday against Sri Lanka. What actually happened was a complete unravelling, getting bowled out for 156 and falling to a devastating eight wicket loss.

With one foot back on the plane to England, it's only pride that's now salvageable for the champions who have opted to play the same XI that were defeated so convincingly to the Lions. India are similarly unchanged from last time out.

India: Rohit Sharma (captain), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul, Suryakumar Yadav, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj

England: Jonny Bairstow, Dawid Malan, Joe Root, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler (captain), Liam Livingstone, Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, David Willey, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood

How to watch India vs England live stream from outside your country

Below we've got you covered with your official broadcasting options for more cricket-loving countries (and the US!), but if you're outside your country of residence – whether that's India, Pakistan, Australia or anywhere else – and try to start streaming the 2023 Cricket World Cup via your typical broadcasting service, you'll soon discover that you can't, as it's location restricted. But there is a way to tune in regardless.

By downloading and installing a VPN, you can effectively trick your computer into thinking that it's back at home. That way you can enjoy your home coverage without having to find an illegal stream – assuming you comply with the broadcaster's fine print, of course – specifically its terms and conditions.

USA flag

How to watch India vs England live stream in the US (and Canada) and without cable


Every game of the 2023 Cricket World Cup is being shown on both ESPN Plus online and Willow TV in the US. Willow is also available in Canada.

We'd recommend ESPN Plus to sports fanatics watching online, as it also has the rights to the NFL, MLB, NHL, PGA Tour golf, Top Rank boxing and EFL, FA Cup, Bundesliga and La Liga soccer.

Monthly plans cost $10.99 a month, while the cost-saving annual subscription is priced at $109.99 a year.

But there's even better value to be had if you grab ESPN+ as part of the big Disney Plus Bundle. As well as ESPN Plus live sports and documentaries, you'll get access to the hugely impressive Disney Plus catalog, which features Marvel movies, every Simpsons episode ever, the complete Star Wars canon, Pixar films, and much more, plus all the great shows and movies that Hulu offers.

And the cost is super reasonable – you only have to pay $14.99 a month for the Disney Plus bundle – $24.99 if you want to ditch the ads.

Willow TV, meanwhile, is available from a number of cable providers including Dish, Spectrum, Xfinity, Verizon Fios and more. It's also accessible via OTT provider Sling TV across a range of devices. There are options to pay just for Willow (from $10 a month), or add it to your existing Sling plan. You can check out your options and sign up on its website.

Out of the US and want to watch your home coverage? No worries – just use a VPN as described below.
