IND vs BAN: India get quality practice against unqualified Bangladesh

Virat Kohli missed out on India's only T20 World Cup 2024 warm-up match but with Bangladesh offering hardly any competition, India cruised to a 62-run win.

IND vs BAN Live Score: Rohit Sharma & Co warm up for T20 World Cup with a 62-run win over Bangladesh. But in the only warm-up match, India did not face any quality from the opponent. The batters had it easy barring Shoriful Islam’s opening spell while the bowlers had a day out with the new ball until Shakib Al Hasan and Mahmudullah offered some resistance with a 75-run stand. But they could not deter a rout for India anyway.

Earlier, India posted 182/5 in 20 overs after opting to bat. Rishabh Pant (32-ball 53) and Hardik Pandya (23-ball 40) powered India to a competitive total in their first outing in New York City. In the only practice-match before T20 World Cup, Rohit Sharma opted to bat against Bangladesh. However, Virat Kohli missed out having just arrived in New York 12 hours earlier.

Rohit Sharma speaks

We will bat. Not for any particular reason, conditions here look a bit challenging. Virat has just arrived yesterday, he’s going to miss out, the rest are all available and we’ll see how to use them. We arrived quite early, so the body clock has adjusted, we just have to see how well we can adjust to these conditions.

No Virat Kohli

However, Rohit Sharma has confirmed that Virat Kohli is missing out as he just arrived.

India bat first

Rohit Sharma has won the toss and opted to bat first against Bangladesh in the only warm-up clash.

Pitch report

It’s a fresh pitch in a fresh stadium. Nassau County International Cricket Stadium has been set up in just 3 months time. And now, it’s time for its debut. Russel Arnold says the drop-in pitch which has been brought in from Adelaide will aid batters with 180-190 total expected.

Virat Kohli begins practice

Since joining India squad, Virat Kohli has begun practice for the first time.

Dada’s message to Team India

Former India captain Sourav Ganguly has a message for Team India.

Ro-Ko reunite

After missing the England series, Virat Kohli returns in India colours for the first time. And he reunites with Rohit Sharma.

Kohli arrives at stadium

While speculation is rife about Virat Kohli whether he will play today’s match or not, he has arrived in the stadium.

Rishabh Pant returns

All eyes will be on Rishabh Pant, who will return in India colours for the first time since his near-fatal car crash in December of 2022.

Security beefed up

With fears of ISIS and lone wolf attack, security has been beefed up for Team India in New York.

India fans queue up

Some Indian fans have already begun queuing up ahead of the IND vs BAN warm-up.

Will Virat Kohli play?

Virat Kohli arrived in New York on Friday and joined the squad. But after travelling 12,000 kilometers from Mumbai to New York, it’s uncertain whether he will play the only warm-up. He hasn’t had a practice session in New York yet. The only practice session he would have is against Bangladesh. But for obvious reasons, Kohli will be jetlagged and that could prevent him from playing.

Warm-up rules

The IND vs BAN warm-up will be in the same format (20 overs per side) as regular T20Is but won’t carry international T20 status as teams will be allowed to field all the players in the squad, including reserves.

NY buzzing for Rohit!

Rohit Sharma’s projection is at the famous Rockefeller Center in New York.
