IND vs ENG: India’s warm-up game against County Championship XI in Durham Live Streaming, Date, Time, Venues – All you need to know: Team India will play a three-day practice match from 20 – 22 July against a County Championship XI to prepare for the five-match upcoming England series. The Indian players who are currently on a break will gather in Durham for the three-day practice match and will use Emirates Riverside as a home venue for the test series against England in August.
“Durham Cricket are delighted to announce that Emirates Riverside will host India against a County Championship XI as the tourists prepare for their test series against England later this summer,” a release from Durham Cricket stated on Wednesday.
Earlier, ECB had confirmed that no practice games will be scheduled and the visitors were to play two intrasquad matches as preparation for the forthcoming five-match Test series against England. However, with BCCI’s request after the WTC Final defeat, ECB finally agreed to a three-day practice match. The match will be played behind the closed door.
ECB has named a 14-man squad led by Warwickshire captain Will Rhodes that also features England’s recent Test debutant James Bracey and Haseeb Hameed, who made his Test debut against India in 2016.
Meanwhile, wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant has been tested positive for Covid-19. Pant will not travel to Durham with the rest of the squad and won’t take part in the warm-up game. He is instead in quarantine and will only join the squad after regaining full fitness.
