India produced an energetic performance with the bat on Monday to beat England by 7-wickets in their first T20 World Cup warm-up match in Dubai. Chasing 189 for victory, the 2007 champions rode on destructive half-centuries from Ishan Kishan and KL Rahul to cross the finish line with 6 balls to spare. Kishan and Rahul opened the batting and added 82 for the first wicket to lay a solid foundation for the run chase before the latter got out against the run of play for 51 to Mark Wood. Virat Kohli, who dropped to No. 3 to accommodate Rahul at the top, suffered a rare failure with the bat, scoring just 11 off 13 balls. Kishan carried on attacking the England bowlers and top-scored with 70 not out of 46 balls with 7 fours and 3 sixes before being replaced by Suryakumar Yadav, but this move did not work because he couldn't fire as according to expectations and got out for 8 with India needing 21 off 15 balls. Fortunately, the duo of Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya did what was needed and knocked off the required runs without much trouble. Pant finished the match with six and finished with 29 not out while Pandya scored 12 not out.Impressive batting performance Fine bowling display #TeamIndia beat England & win their first warm-up game. #INDvENG #T20WorldCup : Getty Images pic.twitter.com/jIBgYFqOjz— BCCI (@BCCI) October 18, 2021Earlier, Mohammed Shami snapped three wickets but Jonny Bairstow smashed a 36-ball 49 to help England post a challenging 188 for 5 after being asked to bat first by Virat Kohli. Besides Shami (3/40), fellow pacer Jasprit Bumrah (1/26) and spinner Rahul Chahar (1/43) were also among wickets at the ICC Academy Ground in Dubai. Bairstow hit one six and had four hits to the fence in his knock, while Liam Livingstone (30) also contributed with the bat. But it was Moeen Ali's whirlwind 20-ball 43 which powered England to a good score in the end. India will next face Australia in their second warm-up match at the same venue on Wednesday (October 20) while England will lock horns with New Zealand in Abu Dhabi.

On Wednesday, Sreesanth had posted a video where he said that Gambhir had called him something which was very rude.In an emotional video shared on his Instagram channel, S Sreesanth disclosed the content of his heated exchange with Gautam Gambhir during a Legends League match between Gujarat Giants and India Capitals.Sreesanth revealed, "He repeatedly called me a fixer, saying 'Fixer, fixer, you're a fixer... you f**k off, fixer.' These were the words he used on live television at the center of the wicket. He continued using this language, and even in front of the umpires as they tried to intervene.""I maintained my composure and did not utter a single offensive or abusive word towards him. I simply questioned him, asking 'What are you saying?' and responded with a sarcastic laugh," added Sreesanth during an Instagram live video on Thursday.The incident had happened in the second over, when Gambhir hit a six and a four against Sreesanth. Then, the bowler bowled a dot ball after which there was a flare-up between the two.It must be noted that the Delhi police had alleged that Sreesanth and two other cricketers were involved in spot-fixing during the 2013 season of the Indian Premier League. But the charges were later dropped by a Delhi court.“Just wanted to clear the air with what happened with Mr fighter. One who always fights with all his colleagues. For no reason whatsoever. He does not even respect his senior players, including Viru bhai. That’s exactly what happened today. Without any provocation, he just kept on calling me something which was very rude which shouldn’t have been said by Mr Gautam Gambhir,” the former India bowler had said in a video on Wednesday.He went on to add: “I am not at all at fault here. I just wanted to clear the air straightaway. What Mr Gauti has done, sooner or later all of you will get to know. The words which he used and the things he said on a cricket field, live, is not acceptable. My family, my state, everybody has gone through so much. I fought that battle with all your support. Now people want to down me for no reason. He said things he shouldn’t have said. I will surely let you know what he said.”
