On the other hand, India will play its second warm-up game against Australia ahead of its titanic clash against arch-rivals Pakistan on October 24.

India too won its first warm-up match against England held on October 18 at Dubai International Stadium. 

India’s third practice match will be against South Africa on October 20 at same venue but it would be an afternoon game.

Post warm-up matches, arch-rivals India and Pakistan will begin their ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2021 campaign in Dubai in a Super12 Group 2 stage clash on October 24th.

Scotland, who began their T20 World Cup campaign on a resounding note, will point their guns at Papa New Guinea for the fifth match of the tournament on Tuesday at the Al Amerat Cricket Ground in Al Amerat.

Scotland sent shock waves on Sunday by edging out Bangladesh by six runs through Chris Greaves’ heroics.
