Fresh from the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021, Indian players will be at 'home' in Dubai on Monday night when they play England in a T20 World Cup 2021 warm-up match. India and England are in different groups in the ICC men's T20 World Cup in the UAE and Oman but have a great chance to clash in the knockout rounds. Rival captains Virat Kohli and Eoin Morgan will like to utilise the practice game to score some much-needed runs. Morgan was in horror for in IPL 2021 and his repeated failures cost Kolkata Knight Riders the trophy against Chennai Super Kings in the IPL final in Dubai on October 15. Kohli was relatively better but not his usual self. India and England clashed in a T20 series in March this year. India won the series 3-2 at home. While the entire Indian team is ready for the T20 World Cup after the UAE leg of the IPL, England players were involved in 'The Hundred' earlier in the season. England's top players like Jonny Bairstow and Jos Buttler, who gave Part 2 of IPL 2021 a skip, will be fresh for the World Cup. But all eyes will be on the in-form Moeen Ali, who played a crucial role in CSK's title win in IPL 2021. Follow live cricket scores of India vs England warm-up match here.
