Welcome to Sports star Live coverage of the 2021 T20 World Cup warm-up match between India and England at the ICC Academy Stadium in Dubai.
The game started at 7:30 in the evening. Toss at 7 o’clock in the evening.
Virat Kohli’s team will fill some gaps in the T20 World Cup XI before the Super 12 match against Pakistan on October 24th, as they will face Eoin Morgan’s England in today’s warm-up match.
The focus will be on whether the all-rounder Hardik Pandya can bowl and whether the team is considering playing him as a professional batsman. In this case, the bowling combination may need to be modified.
It remains to be seen whether India will adopt the speed duo of Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, or choose fewer spinners and open the gate for Shardul Thakur, which will add a bit of depth to the shot.
With the position of Ravindra Jadeja in the last 11 games almost confirmed, we may see the mysterious spinner Varun Chakaravarthy and the experienced Ravichandran Ashwin vying for the second spinner position.
As KL Rahul and Ishan Kishan compete with the deputy captain Rohit Sharma for a position, people are looking forward to the opening combination. After India hosted five T20Is earlier this year, Captain Kohli also became a candidate for this job.
In the mid-level, goalkeeper Rishabh Pant’s role as a terminator also needs to be consolidated, as we may see Hardik promoted to No. 5, allowing him to attract attention after the lackluster season of IPL.
Since many questions may be answered during the game, the warm-up game will be an exciting prospect that will set the tone and team composition for the game.
