T20 World Cup 2021: India Vs England Warm-Up Game Is Heating Up

Virat Kohli and India won the toss and put England in to bat in the first warm-up game

After winning the toss against Jos Buttler-led England on Monday, India skipper Virat Kohli opted to have a bowl first.

Kohli, while talking about the playing XI, also revealed that he will bat at no.3, while KL Rahul will open, saying “it’s hard to look past him”.

Eoin Morgan sits out this game due to IPL fatigue, England announced.

Team India officially begin their T20 World Cup 2021 campaign against Pakistan on Sunday, October 24, in a blockbuster match.

Both teams will see the warm-up game as an opportunity to find the right combination and suss out the opposition in these particular playing conditions.

It may be a warm-up game but a tightly fought contest, as Shami sends back both Buttler (18) and Jason Roy (17) and the dangerous Dawid Malan gets castled by Rahul Chahar for 18, as England is poised at 77/3 in 9.2 overs.
