The warm-up games for the marquee international tournament will commence on May 27 to conclude on June 1.

Meanwhile, England and Pakistan have no warm-up game as both teams will take on each other in the four-match T20I series, starting next week on May 22. The dates of England vs Pakistan T20I series clash with the dates of the T20 World Cup’s warm-up games.
