Today’s live cricket streaming international cricket is New Zealand v West Indies and India v Bangladesh warm-up matches, 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup.

May 28, New Zealand v West Indies, 9th practice match, 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup


The last official warm-up match of the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup for both New Zealand and West Indies will be played at Bristol in Ashley Down.

New Zealand are coming off a thumping win over India in their last match and would be raring to go again. Trent Boult put up a masterclass of swing bowling in helpful conditions at the Kennington Oval in the game against India, dismissing both Indian openers in quick succession. He ended up taking four wickets from 6.2 overs and broke the back of the Indian batting line up.

James Neesham did a fine job, picking up three wickets at an economy of under five. Tim Southee, Colin de Grandhomme and Lockie Ferguson also played their part, picking up one wicket each.

In reply, it was up to Martin Guptill, Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor to help New Zealand to an easy win.

West Indies, on the other hand, were marred by rain and could only get to play 12.4 overs. The brief period of the match was dominated by South Africa's Hashim Amla and Quinton de Kock.

Each of the bowlers used by West Indies went for plenty and could not break the opening partnership. The team will be fretting over the fitness of pace bowler Shannon Gabriel, who walked off the field in the warm-up match after bowling just two deliveries.

New Zealand should win this match if things go as usual, but if even one of the many match-winners in the West Indian line up get going, they very well have the ability of decimating the Kiwis.

Let's have a look at the squads of both teams.

New Zealand- Kane Williamson (c), Ross Taylor, Tim Southee, Martin Guptill, Colin de Grandhomme, Colin Munro, Trent Boult, Tom Latham, Ish Sodhi, James Neesham, Matt Henry, Mitchell Santner, Lockie Ferguson, Henry Nicholls, Tom Blundell

West Indies- Jason Holder (c), Chris Gayle, Kemar Roach, Darren Bravo, Andre Russell, Ashley Nurse, Shannon Gabriel, Carlos Brathwaite, Evin Lewis, Sheldon Cottrell, Nicholas Pooran, Fabian Allen, Shimron Hetmyer, Shai Hope, Oshane Thomas

May 28, India v Bangladesh, 10th practice match, 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup

All the fanfare and expectations were met with a jolt as India were reduced to 39-4 in no time in their first warm-up match against New Zealand.

However, as Ravindra Jadeja said in the post-match press conference, there is no need to press the panic button. The conditions at the Kennington Oval were not your everyday conditions that you will face often during the World Cup. Regardless, it was a welcome reminder that the Indian batting continues to struggle when there is something in the wicket for the bowlers to exploit.

After the openers were dismissed cheaply, Virat Kohli and Lokesh Rahul looked settled but they only flattered to deceive. Hardik Pandya looked impressive for his 30. Despite a quickfire half-century from Ravi Jadeja, the team only managed 179, which New Zealand chased with almost 13 overs to spare.

Among the Indian bowlers, Jasprit Bumrah and Ravindra Jadeja were outstanding, while Mohammed Shami, Hardik Pandya and Yuzvendra Chahal also did a decent job. However, the spotlight would be on Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Kuldeep Yadav in this game. The two were initially expected to be in India's first XI but another bad outing can lead them to the bench for India's first match against South African on June 5.

On the other hand, Bangladesh were robbed of match practice as their first warm-up match against Pakistan was washed out without even a ball being bowled. With several match-winners in the squad, the chances of the Tigers pulling off an upset cannot be ruled out.

Let's have a look at the squads of both teams.

India- Virat Kohli (c), Dinesh Karthik, MS Dhoni, Rohit Sharma, Ravindra Jadeja, Shikhar Dhawan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Lokesh Rahul, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Kedar Jadhav, Vijay Shankar

Bangladesh- Mashrafe Mortaza (c), Mushfiqur Rahim, Shakib Al Hasan, Tamim Iqbal, Mahmudullah, Rubel Hossain, Mohammad Mithun, Sabbir Rahman, Soumya Sarkar, Abu Jayed, Liton Das, Mosaddek Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman, Mehidy Hasan, Mohammad Saifuddin
