So bad no warm up game for Pakistan, A big advantage to India ahead of the big clash.
 
no warmup game for Pakistan?

I think ICC must have thought that Pakistan is a complete side and they dont need any warmup to get the rythm. lol
 
As per media reports, Pakistan have opted out of playing a warm-up match in the lead-up to the T20 World Cup next month to ensure better workload management of their players. The decision to keep the players fresh has also been driven by the fact that this will be the biggest T20 World Cup, with 20 teams participating in the 55-match tournament. Pakistan will enter the tournament after playing seven T20Is from 8-30 May. They are currently in England to play the hosts in four T20Is, the last of which will be exactly a week out from their tournament opener.
 
Pakistan have no warm-up matches?

It would have been a good idea to arrange the Pakistan vs. England T20 series in the USA/West Indies.

They are playing 4 games in England - guess enough to see where they stand (or not)
 
Nassau County International Cricket Stadium will open its doors to the public for the first time on 1 June, as Bangladesh plays India in a warm-up match ahead of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024.

“We’re pleased to be able to open this warm-up match to the public, and especially glad to be able to provide another opportunity for local residents to see first-hand what’s happening in their back yard,” said T20 USA CEO Brett Jones.

The official list of warm-up match fixtures for the entire ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 have previously been announced. Matches are scheduled to be played from Monday 27 May to Saturday 1 June across the USA and at two venues in Trinidad and Tobago in the West Indies.

The venues to host the 16 warm up matches are the Grand Prairie Cricket Stadium, Grand Prairie, Texas; Broward County Stadium, Broward County, Florida and Queen’s Park Oval and Brian Lara Cricket Academy in Trinidad and Tobago.

Warm-up fixtures will be 20 overs per side and will not carry international T20 status as teams will be allowed to field all members of their 15-player squad. In a change from the previous rights cycle, teams will now have the option of playing up to two warm-up matches depending on arrival time at the event.

Only the one match at Nassau County International Cricket Stadium and one match in the West Indies will be open to fans.

This is because Pakistan will be playing a T20I series against England. So, no warmup matches for both these teams in West Indies and USA.
 
Bangladesh play a 3 match series against the USA followed by a one match warm up against the same opposition.

Who thought of that?
 
Canada is also looking seriously good in T20 format, in 1st warmup game against Nepal they have scored 183/7 in 20 overs
 
Disciplined Canada plot perfect start to T20 World Cup preparation with Nepal win

Canada steamrolled their way to a 63-run victory over Nepal to begin their ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 preparations.

Readying for their first T20 World Cup appearance, the North Americans played out an ideal warm-up match with challenges and fight back in equal measure.

After being put in to bat first, Canada lit up the first innings with great ball striking on display as they smashed away at 9.15 runs per over.

Nicholas Kirton was the first to shine. Coming in at number four, the left-handed batter played a pivotal role in advancing Canada's innings with well-timed shots, hitting four fours and two sixes in his knock of 52 off 39 balls.

Despite struggling at 135/7 in the 18th over, Canada finished strong by scoring 55 runs in the last three overs, thanks to destructive cameos from Ravinderpal Singh and Dillon Heyliger (13* off 7 balls).

Ravinderpal's extraordinary innings of 41* off 17 balls, which included four sixes and a four at a strike rate of 241.17, propelled Canada to a total of 183/7.

Nepal bowlers were shining bright in the middle overs while bowling – striking with five wickets and conceding 24 runs in the span of 27 deliveries. Canada went from 111/2 in the 14th over to 135/7 in the 18th over with Nepal’s Sagar Dhakal proving to be the most economical (5.50) of the lot.

In contrast, Nepal found it difficult to keep up with the required run rate of 9.2 in their chase of 184. Openers Kushal Bhurtel (10 off 16 balls) and Aasif Sheikh (22 off 22 balls) found it difficult to get going.

Anil Sah was the only Nepal batter who looked comfortable in the middle, batting with a strike rate of 150 for his 24, but holed out to Navneet Dhaliwal off Pargat Singh’s bowling.

Forming the middle order, captain Rohit Paudel (1), Sundeep Jora (6) and Gulshan Jha (0) – all went back to the pavilion with a single digit score.

Heyliger returned to action with the ball this time, snaring four wickets for 20 runs. Canada’s all-round show bowled Nepal out for 120, securing a 63-run win.

I think 3 T20 series right before the World Cup is plenty of practice. Its more practice than practically any other team.
 
Oman get past PNG

Oman chased down Papua New Guinea’s total of 137 with five balls to spare to win their warm-up match by three wickets.

Having been put into bat, Papua New Guinea found scoring tough going with Lega Siaka posting their highest score with 28 off 20 balls before being dismissed to leave his side at 55 for three.

A late cameo of 17 from 10 balls from Alei Nao pushed Papua New Guinea to 137 from their 20 overs as captain Aqib Ilyas disrupted the middle order with three wickets for 22.

Having already delivered with the ball, Zeeshan Maqsood then impressed with the bat.

The all-rounder had conceded just one boundary off his three overs of left-arm spin before making 45 from 42 balls.

Davin delivers for Namibia

An unbeaten half-century from Roger Mukasa was not enough to see Uganda over the line as Namibia triumphed by five wickets thanks to 54 from Niko Davin.

In the battle between two African teams, Uganda were put into bat with opener Robinson Obuya leading the charge.

He made 38 from 27 before Mukasa took over, posting 51 from 41 balls including six fours and one six.

Bernard Scholtz was the pick of the Namibian bowlers, going for just 16 runs from his four overs also picking up two wickets.

Davin expertly steered the chase of 134, compiling a masterful half-century including five sixes.

He and JP Kotze put on the highest partnership of the day with 85 before Namibia wobbled with Davin’s dismissal immediately followed by a duck for Merwe Erasmus.

However, JJ Smit saw off the remaining total to end on 21 not out and hand Namibia the victory.

Warner shines as Australia flex muscle with dominant warm-up triumph

Impressive performances from David Warner, Josh Hazlewood and Adam Zampa ensured a short-handed Australia cruised past Namibia.

Australia have issued a warning to opposition teams at the ICC Men's T20 World Cup with a clinical seven-wicket victory over Namibia in their opening warm-up fixture in Trinidad on Tuesday.

Despite having a host of stars that have failed to arrive in the Caribbean as yet and being forced to use a group of their coaches in the field as substitute fielders, the 2021 T20 World Cup champions looked in good touch as they chased down Namibia's total of 119/9 in dominant fashion with 10 overs remaining with a quickfire half-century from David Warner (54*).

Warner smashed six fours and a trio of massive sixes at the Port of Spain venue, facing just 21 deliveries in an excellent sign for the Aussies after the left-hander struggled for consistency and battled injury during the recent IPL.

Seamer Josh Hazlewood was impressed with what he saw from Warner and expects the veteran to contribute strongly during next month's event.

"When it comes to these tournaments he always stands up as we know so I expect nothing but big things again from the Bull (Warner)," Hazlewood told Cricket Australia post-match.

"He looked good out there on what looked a pretty tough wicket and he timed the ball pretty well from the outset.

"So we always expect big things from Davey."

Hazlewood (2/5) set the tone with a superb opening spell that netted three maidens, while first-choice spinner Adam Zampa (3/25) bowled well yet again as Namibia only snuck past 100 courtesy of some decent late hitting from Zane Green (38).

Australia openers Mitchell Marsh and Warner had 39 on the board inside three overs in reply and the loss of Marsh for 18 and stand-in No.3 Josh Inglis (5) allowed Tim David (23) to arrive at the crease as the Aussies kept the runs flowing by scoring boundaries at ease.

David fell in the ninth over to Bernard Scholtz (2/16), but Matthew Wade (12*) and Warner kept the momentum going as Australia claimed the victory with ease.

Earlier in the day, the warm-up fixture between the USA and Bangladesh in Dallas was cancelled due to rain and the Netherlands registered an impressive 20-run triumph over Sri Lanka in Florida.

In hindsight, Pakistan should have been better off playing likes of Oman etc in USA as opposed to washed out games in UK

I think USA and Scotland should win their games today. USA is in some form after beating Bangladesh in a T20 series.
 
West Indies scored 257/4 in a warmup game against Australia.

Australia needs some miracle now to chase down the huge target.

Yeah but Australia didn't play stones, maxwell, Travis or half their dug out

Amd they were bowling Ashton agar and Tim David 😂😂.

Australia's goal is to prepare themselves for the world cup by mentally putting themselves in extremely difficult situations in warm ups.

Their not Pakistan
 
West Indies issue warning with impressive Australia triumph

The Caribbean side looked in good touch as they eased past the Aussies courtesy of a strong performance with the bat.

The West Indies showed some ominous signs as the ICC Men's T20 World Cup co-hosts registered an impressive 35-run victory over Australia in their warm-up fixture in Trinidad on Thursday.

Nicholas Pooran was the star of the show with a superb 75 as the West Indies posted a massive total of 257/4 at Queens Park Oval and that score proved too much for Australia as the Caribbean side cruised home to victory ahead of their opening match at the T20 World Cup against Papua New Guinea on Sunday.

Pooran smashed a whopping eight sixes during his 25-ball stay and skipper Rovman Powell (52), left-hander Sherfane Rutherford (47*) and opener Johnson Charles (40) also got in the act as the two-time T20 World Cup champions delighted their home crowd with some scintillating power-hitting.

All of Australia's bowlers felt the wrath of the West Indies' top-order, with first-choice spinner Adam Zampa conceding 62 runs from his four overs while picking up two wickets.

Australia put up a decent show in reply despite missing a host of key players, with Josh Inglis (55), Nathan Ellis (39) and Ashton Agar (28) looking the most dangerous in what was always going to be a difficult chase as the 2021 T20 World Cup winners finished with 222/7 in their final warm-up fixture.

Spinner Gudakesh Motie (2/31) and tall pacer Alzarri Joseph (2/44) picking up a pair of wickets each for the hosts.

In the other completed warm-up fixture on Thursday, Namibia narrowly defeated Papua New Guinea by three runs (DLS method) following a rain-affected contest in Tarouba.

Papua New Guinea could only muster 109/7 from their 20 overs, but an inspired spell from Assad Vala (2/17) helped keep Namibia in touch and the African nation were sitting precariously at 93/6 in the 17th over when the match was called off at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy.

Result


Afghanistan beat Scotland by 55 runs

Sri Lanka defeated Ireland by 41 runs


Afghanistan excel in all departments in big warm-up win over Scotland

Scotland v Afghanistan


Having missed out on their batting innings in the warmup game against Oman, Afghanistan made the most of their encounter against Scotland. After a good outing with the bat, the Afghanistan bowlers picked regular wickets and handed the side a solid 55-run win.

Afghanistan elected to bat first in good conditions at the Port of Spain in Trinidad.

All-rounder Gulbadin Naib sent in to open with Rahmanullah Gurbaz helped Afghanistan off to a blistering start. He hit 20 runs off the second over of the innings, hitting two fours and two sixes against Brandon McMullen. Gurbaz and later Ibrahim Zadran tried to match Naib’s hitting prowess but fell to attacking shots within the first powerplay.

There was no stopping Naib as he reached his fifty off just 21 balls in the sixth over. Even as Omarzai added stability to the innings, Naib continued going for his shots and Afghanistan looked set for a big total. However, after hitting 11 boundaries inclusive of six sixes, Naib was dismissed in the 10th over when he drove a ball straight into the hands of Scotland skipper Richie Berrington off the bowling of Chris Greaves.

From here, the Afghanistan batting lost its momentum as Scotland bowlers led by Mark Watt (1/27) and Bradley Currie (2/26) managed to stem the flow of runs by picking regular wickets. Captain Rashid Khan arrived in the death overs to hit a quickfire 15 off seven to help Afghanistan to 178/8 in their allotted overs.

The Afghanistan bowlers were into the act pretty early in the innings, with Mujeeb Ur Rahman breaking the opening stand in the fourth over. George Munsey’s aggressive display came to an end when Naveen-ul-Haq cleaned his off-stump up in the very next over.

Afghanistan spinners soon had the stranglehold over the game, as Mujeeb picked the third wicket and then Rashid delivered the big breakthrough with the wicket of his opposite number, Richie Berrington. Karim Janat made further inroads in the lower order, and the Scotland innings petered off in the face of a stiff ask.

Afghanistan won by 55 runs eventually to complete their preparations for the T20 World Cup. Their first game is against Uganda on June 4 while Scotland play England in Barbados in their opener.

Ireland v Sri Lanka

In the other warm-up fixture of the day in Florida, Sri Lanka took on Ireland.

Sri Lanka saw their batting misfire in the initial phases of the game. Late-order contributions from all-rounders Wanindu Hasaranga (26), Angelo Mathews (32), and Dasun Shanaka (23) helped Sri Lanka post 163 in their allotted overs.

Quickfire knocks from Paul Stirling and George Dockrell were the bright spots in the initial stages of the Ireland chase, but regular breakthroughs kept Sri Lanka ahead, and the island nation took the game by 41 runs.

Dasun Shanaka was the star performer with the ball picking 4/23 in his spell.
