Michael Lumb has led a solid start for England in their run-chase of 179 against India in their ICC World T20 2014 warm-up match at the Shere Bangla National Stadium. They did lose Alex Hales as he was bowled by Bhuvneshwar Kumar for 16. But, Lumb has been aggressive in his approach and has kept England in the hunt. In the first seven overs, they have scored 54 for one.

 

Moeen Ali is the new man in the centre and he would partner Lumb. For this run-chase, Lumb is crucial as he is the man in form. This chase won’t be easy although there has been a good start.
