That's it from this warm-up match! The next set of warm-up games will be played on 20th October. At 2 pm local (10 am GMT), India will be in action against Australia and England will be entertaining New Zealand whereas at 6 pm local (2 pm GMT), Afghanistan will face West Indies and Pakistan will meet South Africa. Do join us then. Cheers!

The bowling from India though was good only in patches. In fact, both teams struggled with the ball. Barring Ravichandran Ashwin and Jasprit Bumrah, all the Indian bowlers proved to be expensive. For England, David Willey and Liam Livingstone were decent but the rest struggled. Dew also played its part late in the evening and this will be another challenge in the coming games.

At the halfway stage, India needed another 97 runs and had they lost a few wickets there, this game could have slipped away. Ishan Kishan's stunning attack on Adil Rashid in the 12th over eased down the equation for India and from there on, they kept on finding the boundaries to always stay close to the required rate. Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya staying in the middle and closing the chase would please India even more.

A dominating batting show by India to pocket this warm-up game! It got a bit close towards the end but it was always their game to lose. The Men in Blue got most of the boxes ticked, if not all, in their batting department. KL Rahul and Ishan Kishan displayed great form in the recently concluded Indian T20 League and showed that they are not done yet. Their opening partnership almost did half the job and Ishan extended his stay after that to carry on with his onslaught.

Chris Jordan to Rishabh Pant, SIX! There is the winning blow! Rishabh Pant finishes the game off in style! Back of a length, around off, angling in, Rishabh Pant waits for it and then swivels to smoke this one over deep square leg. INDIA WIN BY 7 WICKETS!

1
Chris Jordan to Hardik Pandya, NO BALL! Jordan oversteps this time. Not having the best time, is Jordan! Outside off, length, drilled through covers for one. Free Hit coming up now. Just 3 more needed for India! Can Pant smack one out of the park and end the game?

Chris Jordan to Hardik Pandya, A full toss, around off, flicked to the left of mid-wicket, who dives that side and partially stops the ball. Two taken this time. 5 more needed! 
18.4

Chris Jordan to Hardik Pandya, FOUR! Edgy but India and Pandya won't care! A fuller delivery, around off, Hardik Pandya looks to whip this one to the leg side but the ball catches the outside edge and flies over short third man. Boundary. 7 needed in 8 now! 
18.4

Chris Jordan to Hardik Pandya, NO BALL AND FOUR BYES! Oops. Looks like the ball slipped out of Jordan's hand. A waist-high full toss, way outside off, Pandya looks to connect with this but misses. It is too quick for Jos Buttler to stop and the ball speeds away to the ropes. Free Hit coming up too.

Chris Jordan to Hardik Pandya, Another dot ball! A full toss, on middle, clipped straight to the mid-wicket fielder. Hardik is not too happy with himself.

David Willey to Hardik Pandya, Back of a length, around off, slanting away, slower again, Hardik Pandya waits for it and looks to dab it to the off side but misses. 'SLOW DAAL RAHA HAI NA?' is what Hardik asks Pant, which means that he is asking if Willey is bowling slow. Looks like Pant replies in the affirmative. 
17.4
0
David Willey to Hardik Pandya, Slower and shorter on the body, Pandya looks to pull but he gets an under-edge to Buttler, on the bounce. 

Hardik Pandya is in next.

David Willey to Suryakumar Yadav, OUT! EDGED AND TAKEN! SKY's short stay has come to an end. He was looking to be cheeky but it proves to be his undoing. Willey bangs this one short, slightly slower though, on middle, Suryakumar Yadav makes room, by moving to the leg side and he looks to ramp it over the keeper. He only manages a thin edge, which goes to Jos Buttler, who ensures to pouch this. 21 more needed in 15 balls now! 
17.2

David Willey to Suryakumar Yadav, FOUR! He gets the placement right this time around! On middle, on a length again, Suryakumar Yadav moves inside and connects with his shot past short fine leg for a boundary.

Chris Jordan to Ishan Kishan, DROPPED! Liam Livingstone drops this chance and also hurts himself in the process. On a length, around middle, Ishan Kishan uses his wrists and whips this towards deep mid-wicket. He does not get the distance on this and Liam Livingstone runs to his left but drops an easy catch. The batters take one and it looks like Liam has injured himself in the process. He walks off and Sam Billings comes out to replace him out on the field. 

Liam Livingstone is leaving the ground. Let's hope it's not a fracture. Also, Ishan Kishan is done with his warm-up, enough of practice and he is making way for Suryakumar Yadav.

13.4

Moeen Ali to Rishabh Pant, SIX! Pant didn't quite hit that one cleanly but such is the raw power that this gentleman generates, that the ball still flies past the ropes. Loopy, fuller, around off, Rishabh Pant skips down and smacks this, one-handed, over the wide long off fence for a biggie.
