The Indian team had a hot and cold outing in the two warm-up games that they played since their arrival in the United Kingdom for the upcoming ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. They were first outplayed by New Zealand in London by six wickets. The 'Men In Blue' then came back strongly in the second warm-up game by registering a comprehensive 95-run victory over Bangladesh. The 12th edition of the World Cup kicked off on Thursday as the hosts England comfortably overcame South Africa in the curtain-raiser at Kennington Oval. Meanwhile, Team India will begin their World Cup campaign against South Africa on June 5 at Southampton.
