New Delhi: Indian cricket team wins the warm-up match by 9 wickets, during the final warm-up game which took place at the ICC Cricket stadium on Wednesday. The sixth bowler’s slot remained a factor of worry though as Virat Kholi rolled his arm over and went to become the tournament proper. Captaining alongside Virat Kholi, Rohit Sharma (60 off 41), and with that, he showed the sublime touch alongside the opening partner KL Rahul (39 off 31), and with this India went on to chase down Australia’s 152 for five in the 17.5 overs. 

Suryakumar Yadav (38 not out off 27), went on to receive the third position due to Kholi’s absence and hence got valuable time in the middle with which he should definitely boost his confidence of moving ahead. Hardik Pandya (14 not out of 8) went on to claim the fourth position to finish the game, and he went on to complete the game with a clean hit over the Blower’s head. Another plus point for India is Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who found a rhythm after he faced a poor outing against England. India had also beaten England during the earlier practice game.Furthermore, Rohit Sharma went on to comment against the warm-up match that, “Hardik is coming along pretty well, but it'll be a while before he will start to bowl.

He hasn't started bowling, but he should be ready by the start of the tournament. India went on to concede 58 runs off the last five overs and this is something which would help them to improve on. On losing the toss India went up for bowling. India had Australia on the mat at 11 for three after Aaron Finch opted to bat first. David Warner's barren run continued after a failed attempt at a reverse sweep had him trapped in front of Ravichandran Ashwin. With his very next ball, Ashwin got rid of birthday boy Mitchell Marsh who played for the turn which wasn't there only to edge it to the first slip.

Ravindra Jadeja had Finch trapped LBW with a slider of his very first ball, leaving Australia with a lot of work to do.

Steve Smith (57 off 48) and in-form Glenn Maxwell (37 off 28) tried to break the shackles with a 61-run partnership.

Here are the squads of both the teams:
India squad for T20 World Cup: Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma (VC), KL Rahul, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Rahul Chahar, Ravichandran Ashwin, Varun Chakravarthy, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Shardul Thakur.
Australia for T20 World Cup: Aaron Finch (C), Ashton Agar, Pat Cummins (VC), Josh Hazlewood, Josh Inglis, Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Kane Richardson, Steve Smith, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis, Mitchell Swepson, Matthew Wade, David Warner, Adam Zampa.
