In the World Cup, Team England will play its opening game on October 5 while Team India will play its opening game on October 8. But first, today's practice match will be the first of two for both sides.
The Indian squad will play its first exhibition game against England at Barsapara Stadium today to assess its readiness for the World Cup, which will begin on October 5. Since these games are not official, both teams are free to use as many of their players as they choose. Any side would, however, prefer to play these games without disclosing its tactics. In all three formats, England has altered their approach throughout the years and has a potent batting order. Any kind of attack can be destroyed by batsmen like Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler, Dawid Malan, Ben Stokes, Harry Brook, Liam Livingstone, and Moeen Ali; in this case, the Indian bowlers will have a chance to put their skills to the test.
Chance To Test Spinning :
Kuldeep Yadav, Ravichandran Ashwin, and Ravindra Jadeja, three Indian spinners, will have a fair chance to put themselves to the test. All of India's bowlers might get to bowl a few overs in this encounter. The depth of the England team's batting lineup is its strongest point. Eighth batter is the all-arounder Sam Curran, while ninth batter is Chris Woakes. Shreyas Iyer, an Indian batsman, will undoubtedly be inserted into the middle order. Despite playing spinners effectively, he frequently struggles with injuries. Ishan Kishan, a left-handed batsman, enters the fray in this circumstance. When given the chance, he has proven himself in every batting order.
Today's high is predicted to be 36.6°C in Guwahati, the capital of the North East State of Assam, with a possible overnight low of 25.6°C. The Barsapara Cricket Stadium is regarded as a batsman's paradise. Shot-making is simple on the pitch because of its high bounce, but as the game goes on, the spinners start to work their magic. India and Sri Lanka played their last ODI match here, which the hosts won by a score of 67 runs. India scored a whopping 373 runs as a result of Virat Kohli's 113 runs. Dasun Shanaka, the skipper of Sri Lanka, got a century in 88 balls, but his team was unable to prevail.
Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul, Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ishan Kishan, and Suryakumar Yadav are the other members of the squad.
Joe Root, Harry Brook, Ben Stokes, Reece Topley, David Willey, Mark Wood, Chris Woakes, Moeen Ali, Gus Atkinson, Jonny Bairstow, Sam Curran, Liam Livingstone, Dawid Malan, Adil Rashid, and Jos Buttler are the captains.
