A total of 16 warm-up matches are set to take place ahead of the T20 World Cup starting from May 27. The tournament proper will commence on June 1 but the participating teams will gear up in the upcoming matches for the competition. It has been an unusual build up for the mega event with few teams being involved in bilateral series while the Indian Premier League (IPL) is concluding only six days prior to the World Cup.

Moreover, England, Pakistan and New Zealand have decided to skip the warm-up games. While England and Pakistan are involved in a four-match T20I series currently that will end on May 30, the Kiwis have decided to completely skip the exercise. India will be facing Bangladesh on June 1 while the hosts West Indies will be playing only a solitary match.

Interestingly, South Africa have opted to play an intra-squad encounter. The warm-up matches will take place across three venues - Brain Lara Cricket Academy in Tarouba and a couple of US venues in Dallas and Florida. The match between India and Bangladesh will take place in New York where the arch-rivals India and Pakistan are scheduled to face-off on June 9.
