A three-day warm-up match between India and County Select XI will be held today. The match will take place at the Riverside Ground on Chester Lee Street. According to Indian time, the match will have to be played from 3:30 pm. The good news for cricket fans is that you can also watch live coverage of the match. The match will be broadcast live on Durham Cricket’s YouTube Channel. This practice match will be very important for Team India under the leadership of Virat Kohli. India will play a five-match Test series against England from August 4 and this is the only practice match before that, which will help Team India regain momentum. For players who have not played in the final of the ICC World Test Championship, this may prove to be their last chance to find momentum and retain their place in the team.
Senior batsmen Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane may be under pressure during this period. There has been a lot of talk about the two of them for some time. Bowling also puts pressure on Jasprit Bumrah. This is a great opportunity for Bumrah to regain his momentum. Team India definitely wants to try Mohammad Siraj in the bowling department. KL Rahul will play for India as wicketkeeper batsman. Both Rishabh Pant and Vriddhiman are also in isolation. While Pant was found positive in the Kovid-19 test, Saha was also in touch with the paramedics who found him positive on the Kovid-19 test. Will Rhodes will captain the 14-man Select County Eleven team.
