14:10 hrs IST: Hello and welcome to our live coverage of the India vs New Zealand, ICC Champions Trophy 2017 warm-up match.
After a hectic six weeks of Indian Premier League, the two warm-up games, the second against Bangladesh, will help the ‘Men In Blue’ get back into the 50-over groove and the emphasis will be on team combination moving into the tournament-proper.
However, the BCCI medical team has confirmed that Yuvraj Singh, who is presently down with viral fever, will miss the match. Rohit Sharma, who will join the squad in England today, will also not be available for the match.
All eyes will be on Ashwin as he is coming from a two- month break after the BCCI wanted him to opt out of the IPL in order to recover from fatigue after playing all 13 Tests in a gruelling home season.
