BCCI treasurer Arun Dhumal told The Indian Express, “Jay Shah will be speaking to ECB and its Chief Executive Officer Tom Harrison to make an arrangement for two warm-up games before the five Test match series.”

“The Secretary felt that the BCCI should request the ECB to give at least two warm-up games so that players can get in some good match practice before the series starts,” he added.

Indian cricket team did not have any warm-up matches before their World Test Championship final against New Zealand. After their defeat, the Indian team has been on a 3-week break. While they have been allowed to travel, they have been told to report immediately whenever called.
