India warm up match today timings: Team India will play a couple of T20 practice matches ahead of the limited Overs series versus England.
After registering a 2-0 T20I series victory against Ireland a few days ago, a second-string team India have arrived in Derby to play the first T20 warm-up match today against the English County team Derbyshire, at the County Ground in Derby.
With the Test team currently playing the rescheduled ‘fifth’ Test match against England at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground in Birmingham, the ‘Indians’ T20 squad would be led by the experienced wicket-keeper batter Dinesh Karthik, in place of all-rounder Hardik Pandya, who was the captain during the tour of Ireland.
