IND vs ENG Match Prediction - Oct 18, 2021

Two of the leading contenders for the T20 World Cup 2021, India and England, are going to be playing their warm-up match against each other. These two teams have a lot of depth in their squads but have taken a dramatically different approach to the kind of players they have picked.

While India has gone with a spin-heavy lineup, England has opted for more pacers in its squad. Both teams have a number of strong batting options that they will be trying to help acclimatize to the conditions.

From a betting perspective, we strongly suggest that you wait for the final playing eleven as there can be a number of unexpected inclusions.

Match prediction and cricket betting tips for India vs England T20 World Cup 2021 Warm-up match. The match is going to be played at the ICC Academy Ground, Dubai on the 18th of October 2021.

IND vs ENG Team Previews


All of the Indian players picked for the T20 World Cup 2021 have been playing the IPL in UAE and so are very well versed with the conditions. We think India’s main focus is going to be trying out a few players to try and finalize its playing eleven.

We should also get a hint about the possible batting lineup that India plays. Players like R Ashwin, Hardik Pandya, Ishan Kishan, and maybe even a struggling for form Virat Kohli should all feature in the lineup.

India has a strong batting lineup but making sure that Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli are in form could be a priority for these warm-up matches.

A possible shootout between R Ashwin and Rahul Chahar for the third spinner’s spot in the squad is also likely. With so much cricket in recent matches, it would not surprise us if India chooses to play a couple of players from its reserves and rests its fast-bowlers.

India Playing 11

Lokesh Rahul, V Kohli, SA Yadav, RR Pant, Ishan Kishan, Ravindra Jadeja, Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ravichandran Ashwin, Mohammed Shami, SN Thakur, Rahul Chahar, JJ Bumrah.


We think England is going to play more or less its best playing eleven for this match. It will want its leading players to get used to the conditions a lot of them were missing from the IPL this season.

In terms of batting power, England is very dangerous and players like Jos Buttler, Jonny Bairstow, Jason Roy, and Liam Livingstone give it an advantage over India. Of course, these players are often found struggling in spin-friendly conditions.

The position of Moeen Ali in this lineup is going to be very interesting to watch. He is at his best at number three but that place just does not seem to be available for him right now.

England’s bowling attack has two bowlers that can hit India with high pace like Tymal Mills and Mark Wood. Mills is also very good with his change of pace deliveries. Adil Rashid and Liam Livingstone should lead the spin-bowling attack.

England’s lineup is very strong and is going to be tough to get past.

Pitch and Conditions

There is no threat of rain and the pitch is going to be a bit of a mystery till we actually get to see a few matches being played. Early reports from the ground suggest that the surface is going to be good for batting and not offer much spin. If that is indeed the case then England will have a good chance of winning.

A score of around 170 should be seen as par.

IND vs ENG Betting Tips

We are going to bet on England to win this match. The difference between the two teams is not much but we have a feeling that India is not going to play its strongest eleven for this match. England should also enjoy the conditions at the Academy ground more than what it gets once the T20 World Cup actually starts.

Bet on England to win.
