India vs England Warm-up T20 World Cup 2021 Live Score: Live Updates from Dubai

India vs England Live: India would look to fine-tune their preparation for the 2021 men's T20 World Cup as they take on England in their first warm-up match in Dubai. India will square off against England and then play Australia before the high-octane opening clash with Pakistan on October 24.

England too will look to decide on their best combinations in batting and bowling during the warm-up matches.  The form of skipper Eoin Morgan, who had a very woeful IPL 2021 with the bat, will be of major concern for the think tank. [India vs England Live Streaming T20 World Cup 2021: How to Watch IND vs ENG Warm-Up Match Online]


23.05 IST: India beat England in their first warm-up match

Rahul (51) and Ishan (71) set the tone as India chased down the 189-run target with an over to spare in Dubai. Kohli and Co are off to a good start in the T20 showpiece. They next face Australia on October 20 at 7:30 PM IST.

22.54 IST: WICKET! Surya nicks a short delivery to Buttler. Hardik joins Pant when India need to score 21 in 15 deliveries. 

22.45 IST: Livingstone drops Ishan but the latter decides to walk. He makes way for Suryakumar after taking India closer to victory. 

22.23 IST: WICKET! Kohli falls to Livingstone. The Indian skipper comes down the track but lobs it towards the backward point. India 126/2 after 13 overs.

22.15 IST: Fifty for Ishan! He slams two sixes against Rashid to take India past the 100-run mark. He's anchored India's run-chase after the departure of Rahul (51). 

21.50 IST: Straight as an arrow! Rahul hammers one straight down the ground for a six off Chris Jordan. Rohit Sharma has been rested for this game but Rahul and Ishan have propelled India to a solid start in his absence. India 59/0 after 6 overs. 

21.35 IST: Rahul is putting on a show! 18 off Woakes' over as Rahul hits three fours and a maximum to mid-wicket. A strong start by India as both openers are off with a fearless approach. India 33/0 after 4 overs. 

21.10 IST: India need 189 runs to win 

A late flourish from Moeen Ali (43 off 20) has helped England notch up 188/5 in 20 overs against India. Earlier, Bairstow set the tone with 49 from 36 deliveries after Shami rocked England's top-order. The Indian paceman removed Roy, Buttler and then castled Bairstow to pick up three-fer in the warm-up contest. Bumrah and Chahar also added one wicket each to their name. 

20.59 IST: A brilliant yorker from Bumrah and Bairstow falls a run short of his fifty. He walks back on 49. England 163/5 after 18/2 overs. 

20.35 IST: Shami back into the attack and he strikes immediately! Livingstone tries to go towards mid-wicket but plays far too across the line. Shami disturbs the woodwork to pick up his third wicket of the evening. England 130/4 after 15 overs. 

20.33 IST: 17 off Chahar's over. Livingstone hammers a six down the ground and then gathers two fours to boost the run-flow. England have added 44 in the last five overs. England 118/3 after 14 overs. 

20.20 IST: WICKET! Third blow for England. Chahar castles Malan. A delight for Chahar as he completely outfoxed the England batter. England are now 79/3 at the halfway mark. 

20.00 IST: Shami has taken two to put India in the driver's seat. A short delivery to Roy and he tries to find the gap on the backfoot. He picks out Bumrah instead. Bairstow and Malan are currently at the crease. England 51/2 in 6 overs. 

19.30 IST: Ravi Shastri - "Boys have been playing IPL for the last 2 months, so I don’t think they need too much of preparation. It’s more about them getting together and adapting together. Get some rhythm going, some energy going. We’ll just try to see how much dew is around and accordingly decide to bat/bowl first. Also helps us decide about playing an extra spinner or seamer."

19.00 IST: India have won the toss and have opted to field. Skipper Kohli to bat at No.3 in the T20 showpiece

Virat Kohli: "We will bowl first. We have had success in the past. So we want to create that same energy. The IPL is right up there, but this is paramount. Adaptability, how plays where is what matters. We are pretty solid in how we are going to start in the first game. We will look to give game-time to most of them. Things were different before IPL, now it's difficult to look beyond KL Rahul. He's been solid upfront. I will be batting at 3."

Jos Buttler: "Everyone is excited. Good to get together. Obviously, he (Morgan) is having a rest after those weeks in the IPL. Gives others a chance of exposure. I’m sure India are going to come hard at us, there will be a lot of intensity. Some have come from the IPL for us while many are coming directly from back home. It’s about adapting to the team roles. Pushing for places is important, it’s something that’s driven us over the last many years. There is a lot of competitiveness and it really drives the guys. It’s been healthy for us."

IND vs ENG T20 World Cup: All-rounder Hardik Pandya's form and few batting slots will be foremost on captain Virat Kohli's mind as India look to make the most of two T20 World Cup warm-up matches starting with a game against England on Monday.

With all the Indian players coming straight from the recently-concluded IPL, match practice isn't a problem for Kohli and his men but getting the perfect combination on the park before the high-profile opening game against Pakistan on October 24 is a priority.

Against England and Wednesday's game versus Australia, the Indian team management would look to give the players who are still not automatic choices in the playing XI, more overs to bat or bowl to get a better idea about their current form. Vice-captain Rohit Sharma is a certainty at the top but it would be a tough choice between Ishan Kishan and KL Rahul as his opening partner. [FULL PREVIEW]
