India to play Bangladesh in solitary warm-up tie for T20 World Cup, date and venue revealed

Team India is expected to leave for the T20 World Cup in two batches, on May 25 and 26, right after the IPL 2024.

There seems to be a lot of confusion surrounding India’s warm-up fixtures in the T20 World Cup 2024. A report by Cricbuzz suggested that Rohit Sharma & Co. will play only one such practice game, since they’d be coming back after two months of IPL. The same report also said that the team is keen on playing that fixture in New York, and don’t want to go to Florida just for a warm-up tie.

Now, in a report by ESPNCricinfo, India’s solitary warm-up fixture at the T20 World Cup 2024 will be against Bangladesh on June 1, at the Eisenhower Park in New York. It is the same venue, where the much-anticipated India vs Pakistan clash will take place on June 9.

India vs Pakistan Tickets Still Available

ICC’s head of events Chris Tetley said that the tickets for the IND vs PAK encounter are still available. “There are still limited opportunities for people to buy tickets to any of the matches,” he said. “A few tickets and hospitality to all games have been made available, and will be made available as we get the odd returns back from allocations that have had to be withheld.

“So much as I’d like it to be a sellout, right now, not quite. So the last few tickets are available for those that get online quickly.”

Team India Departure Dates

Initially reports surfaced that the first batch of Indian cricketers would leave on May 21, but now it has been made clear that the team will leave in two batches. The teams and players ousted from IPL 2024 already would leave in the first batch on May 25, and the next set of players would leave after the IPL final, maybe on may 26.

India will begin their campaign on June 5 vs Ireland, June 9 vs Pakistan, June 12 vs the United States, and vs Cananda on June 15 in Florida. Then the action would move to the West Indies for the Super Eight.
