Squads

India

Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Rahul Chahar, Ravichandran Ashwin, Axar Patel, Varun Chakaravarthy, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami

Probable best batter of the match

KL Rahul (India)

KL Rahul is coming off a brilliant IPL season where he ended as the third highest run-getter with 626 runs to his name in 13 innings. Moreover, he also smashed a scintillating century in the last league game for his side and would love to carry on this form in this encounter.

Probable best bowler of the match

Tymal Mills

England pacer Tymal Mills has stunningly made it to the World Cup squad thanks to his performances in The Hundred. With Jofra Archer getting injured, the selectors decided to give him an opportunity and may end up playing in the first XI during the Super 12. Expect him to get a chance in this warm-up game.
