ICC Champions Trophy Warm-up Matches

India v Sri Lanka

India won by 5 wickets (with 6 balls remaining)

Indian players are out and Tillakaratne Dilshan and Kusal Perera will open for Sri Lanka. Irfan Pathan will open the bowling for India with two slips.

Each side will consist of a maximum of 15 players, out of which 11 can bat and field at a time. Any player among the nominated ones can bowl or keep wickets.

There's some crowd in Birmingham for this match, support for both the teams in these breezy and cold conditions.

Manprabh: "I was just wondering, do the warm-up matches statistics/records count towards the players personal ODI records?" Nope, this is a warm-up match and records won't be counted.

Toss 10am India have won the toss and will bowl first.

MS Dhoni thinks it's a good wicket and there will be swing for fast bowlers. He also admits death bowling has been a concern for them. Angelo Mathews said he would have batted anyway and is looking to give opportunities to most of the players.

Both the teams can use as many players from the squad of 15 and it is likely only 11 will bat.

India players have hardly had any time to regroup after the IPL which ended barely a week ago. Some Sri Lanka players also played in the T20 tournament but they didn't do particularly well, and the others were practising in Sri Lanka.

9.50am Hello and welcome to the coverage of the warm-up match between India and Sri Lanka. It's sunny and partly cloudy in Birmingham after lots of rain.

The teams are warming up on the field in sweaters and the Sri Lankans are also wearing gloves and beanies.
