India’s arrival in England began in a rather disappointing manner as they lost to New Zealand by 6 wickets on Saturday. On a seaming green track at The Oval, India’s top-order couldn’t excel against the Kiwi pacers who felt like bowling at home. They will face-off Bangladesh team who they last faced in a thrilling Asia Cup final. Their first warm-up against Pakistan ended without a result which was also supposed to be played in Cardiff.
India will be hoping to see all their batsmen get a few runs under the belt before getting into the main event. The Indian vice-captain Rohit Sharma usually fails in the warm-up games ahead of the ICC ODI competitions hosted by England. He scored a total of 16 runs across the three matches prior to the Champions Trophy 2013 and 2017. However, he ended up as the 2nd highest run-getter for India in both tournaments. He was dismissed for just two runs against the Blackcaps.
The 10th warmup game of the ICC World Cup 2019 will be played between India and Bangladesh at Sophia Gardens in Cardiff.
The match starts at 10:30 AM local time (9:30 AM GMT) (3:00 PM IST).
The game will be live on Star Sports 1 and Star Sports 1 HD. Live streaming available on Hotstar.
The Sophia Gardens in Cardiff is usually a high-scoring venue but can witness a bit of help for the pacers with the aid of the weather. Under overcast conditions, the Sri Lankan pacer got to swing till the end of the first powerplay against South Africa in the first warm-up game played at this venue.

Hardik Pandya was sent at No.5 in the previous game a move which could continue in the absence of Kedar Jadhav.
