India vs England Live Score, World Cup 2023 warm-up match: Rain forced an abandonment in India's first warm-up match in Guwahati after Indian captain Rohit Sharma won toss and opted to bat against England. The defending champions, England arrived in Guwahati on Thursday following over a 38-hour travel, while India landed in the city a day prior, immediately following the series win against Australia....Read More

England's cricketing philosophy underwent significant changes in recent years, with their batting lineup now including formidable players like Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler, Dawid Malan, Ben Stokes, Harry Brook, Liam Livingstone, and Moeen Ali. Facing this lineup is a daunting task for any bowling attack, and India lost an ideal opportunity for bowlers to challenge themselves.

On the batting front, the ongoing debate between Shreyas Iyer and Ishan Kishan for a place in the middle-order added an interesting dimension to India's team composition. While Iyer has a commendable record in ODIs, Ishan's recent performances and versatility make him a strong contender for selection. As a left-hander who aggressively takes on bowlers, Ishan offers a different dynamic to the lineup. As KL Rahul is likely to fulfill the dual roles of wicketkeeping and batting at No. 5 in most matches, Ishan Kishan's main competition for a spot in the XI remains Shreyas Iyer. Iyer recently displayed his batting prowess with a century against Australia in Indore, reinforcing his credentials for selection.

Key points

  • Match was called off due to rain in Guwahati
  • India had won toss and opt to bat against England. Everyone is fit, says Rohit
  • India face defending champions England, who boast of an incredible batting depth with the likes of Sam Curran, Chris Woakes, and even Mark Wood providing much-needed cushion to the batting-order.
  • Ravichandran Ashwin was called as a last-minute change for the injured Axar Patel in the World Cup squad, and it will be crucial to give him game time ahead of the tournament proper.
  • Shreyas Iyer vs Ishan Kishan conundrum gives an interesting dimension to the warm-up game against England. While Ishan has been a mainstay in the side for the past few months due to injuries to Iyer and KL Rahul, the former's return to run-scoring could spice things up in the middle-order.

India vs England Live Score, World Cup 2023 warm-up match: Jadeja woes

India vs England Live Score, World Cup 2023 warm-up match: Ravindra Jadeja's batting performances have been a cause of concern for the team management for some time. The Indian all-rounder still remains lethal with the ball, but his batting leaves much to be desired; as a high-pressure home world cup approaches, Jadeja would be aiming to make an impact in the lower-middle order

India vs England Live Score, World Cup 2023 warm-up match: India had a chance to play the trio of Ishan Kishan, KL Rahul, and Shreyas Iyer in the playing XI against Australia in the 3rd ODI; however, Ishan was ruled out with illness on the day of the clash, making it a fairly straightforward choice of XI for Rohit Sharma. Yet, India would take relief in the fact that they have two unofficial games to test their combination

Sep 30, 2023 11:34 AM IST

India vs England Live Score, World Cup 2023 warm-up match: Rahul at 4?

India vs England Live Score, World Cup 2023 warm-up match: Even as KL Rahul batted at no.5 in India's previous game against Australia, his performaces at the fourth spot have been exemplary. The star batter smashed a solid century against Pakistan in the Asia Cup, and also made important half-cntury contributions in the first two games vs Australia. Can he return to the 4th spot?

India vs England Live Score, World Cup 2023 warm-up match: Iyer vs Ishan

India vs England Live Score, World Cup 2023 warm-up match: A major talking point heading into this warm-up match. Shreyas Iyer batted at no.3 in the first and second ODIs, and at no.4 in the third, raking up a century and a solid 48 off 43 balls in the final match. Ishan, on the other hand, delivered consistent performances for the side as an opener; in the middle-order, however, the youngster failed to make a mark after his 81 against Pakistan in Asia Cup. He scored 5, 18, and 31 in his next three gams in the middle-order.

India vs England Live Score, World Cup 2023 warm-up match: Batting order

India vs England Live Score, World Cup 2023 warm-up match: 2023 has been the year of experimentations, largely because of consistent injuries to some of the key players in the Indian team. And these experiments gave India a problem of plenty – Ishan stepped up with brilliant performances in ODIs, and with Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul returning from their injuries last month, India enter the World Cup with a middle-order dilemma. New edition, same headache!

India vs England Live Score, World Cup 2023 warm-up match: Rest to pacers?

India vs England Live Score, World Cup 2023 warm-up match: The team management might opt for a more conservative approach towards pacers, with Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj being the first-choice attack. Bumrah participated in two one-day matches against Australia, and if the team management chooses to include him, Rohit might as well use him rather judiciously

India vs England Live Score, World Cup 2023 warm-up match: Kuldeep Yadav was one of the players rested for the first two ODIs against Australia, and a batting-paradise in the third match didn't bide well for the bowlers in Rajkot.

India vs England Live Score, World Cup 2023 warm-up match: Game-time necessary for Ashwin

India vs England Live Score, World Cup 2023 warm-up match: India wicketkeeper-batter Dinesh Karthik had revealed last week that Ashwin was the first-choice for Indian team management when Axar picked up an injury ahead of Asia Cup final. However, Ashwin refused to fly to Sri Lanka owing to lack of game-time, and Washington Sundar was drafted in instead. Ashwin did get two games against Australia, but it is important the off-spinner bowls today and gets as much practice as possible before India's opener on October 8

Sep 30, 2023 10:53 AM IST

India vs England Live Score, World Cup 2023 warm-up match: The return of Ashwin

As the World Cup came closer, it was expected that Ravichandran Ashwin could make a late entry into the squad for Team India. Axar Patel's injury in the Asia Cup game against Bangladesh forced him out of the Australia series and eventually the World Cup, and Ashwin entered the 15-member squad earlier this week. Remarkably, Ashwin is one of the only two members in current Indian team from the 2011 World Cup-winning squad – the other being Virat Kohli
