This is the last practice match of the Indian team before the T20 series against England starting on July 7. India defeated Derbyshire in the first warm-up match.

The Indian cricket team is so busy at the moment that simultaneously two different playing XIs, in two different formats, are on the field, that too at the same time. In a way, the fifth Test match between India and England is going on in Birmingham, England, in which Team India is in a better position in the third day’s play. At the same time, the other team is also frozen in England and is showing its strength in T20 cricket. After the ongoing Test match on England tour, India also has to play T20 series here and a separate team of T20 experts is standing for the preparations for this series. Under the captaincy of Dinesh Karthik, the Indian team took on England’s county club Northamptonshire on Sunday, where the team’s formidable batsmen failed miserably, but Harshal Patel definitely made color with his batting.
