India vs Leicestershire and India vs Derbyshire Warm Up Matches Live

India vs Derbyshire Warm Up Match Live Streaming Score Info
India has kicked off their tour to England in style! With a good amount of time to prepare for the test series and a chance to get used to the cricketing conditions out there, India is playing couple of warm up matches. We will preview both the matches here but don't forget to enjoy India vs England 2014 live streaming on Star Sports in India. The matches would be telecast live on TV again on ESPN Star Sports TV channels in India. One can enjoy HD telecast also with English as well as Hindi commentary. Before we move on to the five test series, India plays Leicestershire first and then Derbyshire.

The first warm up match has already begun and the Indian batsmen have shown their hunger for runs. Good to see Gambhir, Rohit, Dhawan, etc in some good form. Compared to the last tour to England, India is pitching in highly inexperienced side which is full of fearless players like Rohit Sharma, Rahane, Pujara, Dhawan, etc. Last time India suffered a humiliating 0-4 test series loss to England even in the presence of Dravid, Laxman and Sachin. The good part is Dhoni scored runs freely in that tour and he is confident of a good show this time. On the flip side he is also well aware of the challenges that his team is going to face here.

England on the other hand is down and devastated with a test series loss against Srilanka. It was anybody's series out of the two where both the teams played equally well. Srilanka held their nerves in the last test and clinched a historic test series win. Meanwhile Cook who led the side has faced a lot of criticism from the likes of Shane Warne, Michael Vaughan and Boycott. Let us see how well he reacts with his bat.

The first warm up match against Leicestershire will be played at Grace Road in Leicester. The second warm up match against Derbyshire will be played at the County Ground in Derby. Both the grounds were established in the 19th century and have their unique glorious history. Apart from the county matches, these venues have a long aged history of test nations visiting and playing warm up games against the county teams.

Here is the India's warm up matches fixtures in England:
India vs Leicestershire - 26 to 28 June 2014
India vs Derbyshire - 1 to 3 July 2014
