England will play its first match on 23 October

England have to play another warm-up match against New Zealand on Wednesday. In the World Cup, he will start his campaign against West Indies on Saturday (23 October). To test its preparations in the World T20, India played its first practice match on Monday night. In this match against England, Indian players got full opportunity to open their hands and feet.

After losing the toss, England, batting first, set a huge target of 189 runs. In response, India won the match by seven wickets due to Rishabh Pant’s sensible innings after half-centuries from backup opener Ishan Kishan and KL Rahul. India expressed confidence in the new opening pair in the practice match. Both the batsmen were visible from the first over itself. In the IPL, Rahul’s bat had scored a lot of runs. Here too his form remained intact.

Rahul was dismissed after scoring 51 runs in 24 balls. Now it was Ishaan Kishan’s turn. Captain Kohli was standing at one end, while Ishan kept firing in the air from the other end. Soon he also completed his half-century with sixes. This brilliant batsman, who scored 33 runs in the first 29 balls, scored 37 runs in the last 17 balls of his innings at a strike rate of 217.64. Scoring 70 off 46 balls, he left the field for Suryakumar Yadav so that he too could get a chance to practice match.
