After beating Australia in an ODI home series, Team India is now gearing up for their first warm-up match ahead of the 2023 ICC Cricket World Cup. India have been in sensational form in recent times. They put up a dominant performance in the Asia Cup to secure the continental title for the record-extending eighth time. Now it’s time for India to replicate the result in the ODI World Cup to lift the trophy for the third time in history. The warm-up games will be crucial. These matches will provide the opportunity to test every cricketer in the squad before deciding on a solid playing eleven.

India will be up against reigning champions England for the first of the two warm-up matches on September 30. The face-off will take place at the Barsapara Stadium in Guwahati at 2 PM IST. The English squad has already touched down in India. They arrived at the Guwahati airport on Friday. England will be led by Jos Buttler. Star batter Jason Roy who was a key to the 2019 triumph, will miss this World Cup due to back spasms. Eyes will be on all-rounder Ben Stokes, who has reversed his ODI retirement to take part in the blockbuster event.

Pitch Report:

The wicket at the Barsapara Stadium is known as a batting-friendly surface. The conditions are expected to remain the same during the ODI World Cup warm-up match between India and England. Batters will find a good connection, with the pitch providing a conducive bounce. Pacers can also enjoy bowling with the new ball, while spinners will come in handy in the latter half of each innings.

Weather Report:

The weather in Guwahati is expected to remain mostly overcast on September 30. There is also 70 percent possibility of rain in the evening. So the warm-up match between India and England can see some interruptions due to bad weather. The temperature could hover around 26 degrees Celsius to 34 degrees Celsius, while the humidity is anticipated to be around 76-92 percent. The wind speed will be around 5-10 km/h during the 50-over clash.
