Fresh on the back of a seven wicket win against Derbyshire, India will face Northamptonshire in their second and final T20 warm-up match ahead of the three match series against England. With Hardik Pandya given rest after the 2-0 T20I series win in Ireland, Dinesh Karthik had been named captain ahead of the match on Friday.
“Have been around for many years but this was the first time I led the team in blue,” Karthik had written on social media.
“Even though it was a warm-up game, it felt special and a great honour. Big thanks to all who have always supported and for the wishes. Proud of being a part of this team.”
India sailed comfortably to victory against Derbyshire having restricted them for 150 in 20 overs and chasing it down with 20 balls to spare. Whilst Umran Malik and Arshdeep Singh picked a couple of wickets each, Deepak Hooda was once again, India’s highest run scorer with another good outing at number three (57 off 36 balls). Sanju Samson (38 off 30) and Suryakumar Yadav (36* off 22) also added valuable contributions.
