The last warm-up match of the day will be played between India and England at the ICC Cricket Ground in Dubai from 7:30 pm. The first warm-up match between Pakistan and West Indies will be played on this ground. The main stadiums are not being used because those grounds have recently played IPL matches and are being prepared for the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. In such a situation, the main stadium will be available for matches.
All the teams have a chance to hone their preparations before the T20 World Cup 2021, as almost all the teams have been away from international cricket for a long time. However, the good thing is that most of the players have been busy in one or the other league or tournament. In such a situation, match fitness will not be a problem, but everyone will have a chance to regain their lost momentum.
