IND vs ENG Today Match Prediction, WT20 Warm-up, 18th October 2021

KhelTalk is the only destination that brings you the finest today’s match prediction that you can trust. We are here for IND vs ENG Today Match Prediction, WT20 Warm-up, Online Cricket Betting Tips, which will provide every user with a clear picture of which team and in what aspect they can place their bets.


India will be locking horns with England in their first warm-up game of the World T20 campaign. Both India and England are favorites for this tournament and it would be an ideal chance for India to test their bench strength and batting lineup against a strong opponent before a real showdown on 24 against arch-rivals Pakistan.

India surprised everyone with their squad for World T20  especially surprising inclusions of Ravi Ashwin and Ishan Kishan. Shardul Thakur also has been added to the squad lately replacing Axar Patel to provide cover to Hardik Pandya who is under great scrutiny for his bowling fitness. KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma are likely to open the innings which would spoil the chances of Virat who expressed his wish to open at World T20 in March.

Top Batsmen 

  • Virat Kohli- 2272 runs with 52.65 average
  • KL Rahul- 1557 runs with 39.92 average 
  • Rohit Sharma- 2864 runs with 32.18 average 

Top Bowlers

  • Jasprit Bumrah- 59 wickets at 20.25 average  
  • Bhuvneshwar Kumar- 50 wickets at 25.1 average 
  • Ravindra Jadeja- 39 wickets at 29.54 average 


England is reigning 50-over world champions and they have set their sights on World T20 now. They lost in the final in 2016 against West Indies and this world t20 might be their road to redemption. England have one of the strongest squads of the tournament but are without two crucial players, Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer which leaves a big hole in their lineup.

England’s most players are in good form but the form of their captain Eoin Morgan is the biggest headache for them and warm-up matches are an ideal platform to get into his groove. Tymal Mills is also making a comeback into international cricket and World T20 will be an ideal platform to regain his reputation. It is a warm-up game but still, England will wish to kick off their tournament with a strong win against Tournament’s favorites India.

Top Batsmen

  • Jos Buttler- 1871 runs with 31.71 average 
  • Johnny Bairstow– 1143 runs with 27.88 average 
  • Eoin Morgan- 2360 runs with 28.78 average 

Top Bowlers 

  • Chris Jordan- 73 wickets at 27.16 average 
  • Adil Rashid- 66 wickets at 24.29 average 
  • David Willey- 38 wickets at 22.47 average

Weather Report

Weather is expected to be all clear with no significant chances of rain. We witnessed a bit of dew in the last matches of IPL and definitely dew is going to play a role in the 2nd innings. Conditions will be hot and humid as expected.

  • Rain: 4%
  • Humidity 75%
  • Wind speed: 11 km/h.
  • Temperature- 31 Degree Celsius

Pitch Report

ICC Cricket Academy ground is usually used for practice matches and is historically good for batting. Pitch is expected to be even for both batting and bowling and is slow down in 2nd innings. Although dew might tempt captains to bowl first after winning the toss.

IND vs ENG– Who will win the match, Today Match Prediction:

India  is expected to win the match against England 

KhelTalk experts feel that India will win against England in the WT20 Warm-up match. India is the more equipped side to beat England in these conditions. Although it is a Warm-up game both teams will look to put their strong foot forward. India has a solid lineup and almost all players are in good nick and IPL has helped out of form players like Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav to get into their groove. On the other hand, England also is a strong side but the absence of Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer leaves a big hole to fill. English players might struggle in these conditions and they have only two specialized spinners which could make their work even harder. We expect India to win against England.

Top Batsman from India – KL Rahul 

KL Rahul in UAE conditions is a player of different pedigree and he dominates in these conditions. He again scored more than 600 runs this season and nearly clinched a second consecutive orange cap. Rahul is well equipped for slow pitches and his gameplay is ideal to tackle such pitches. He knows how to make most of the powerplay overs and then play long innings. Rahul holds key to India’s chances in this tournament and can give you good returns from this match. He is our pick for best batsman from India.

Top Batsman from England – Jos Buttler 

Jos Buttler last played in September and is coming off a big break from quality cricket which could work in his favor as he is fresh and full of energy. Buttler has a good record against India and in March also, he played some memorable innings against India in the T20 series. He is an explosive player at the top of the order and can take away games from any opponent in the blink of an eye. He is a T20 specialist batsman and can give you good returns from this match. Jos Buttler is our pick for best batsman from England.

Top Bowler from India – Bhuvneshwar Kumar 

Bhuvneshwar Kumar had an ordinary IPL season and people are questioning his recent form. He is an experienced campaigner but has struggled in recent times because of his declining pace. He is still very economical but is lacking in the wicket-taking column. Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah are likely to get the nod ahead of Bhuvneshwar in their first game if Bhuvneshwar doesn’t perform well in these Warm-up games. He is still a quality bowler and can give you good returns from this match. He is our pick for best bowler from India.

Top Bowler from England– Adil Rashid 

Adil Rashid was with Punjab Kings in 2nd phase of IPL but only featured for one game. He has been a consistent performer in T20Is for England in the last 5 years and his record is impeccable. Adil is a clever bowler and uses his slow leg-spin to trap batsmen. He doesn’t have a fast Googly like Rashid Khan or Rahul Chahar but still has been very effective because of his excellent in-game skills. He is going to be England’s biggest game-changer in the middle overs and can give you good returns from this match.
