October 20, 2012 16:05 IST

The touring England cricketers will take on India A in their opening warm-up game ahead of the four-Test series against India starting November 15, the BCCI announced on Saturday.

The England cricket team will be playing three warm-up matches prior to the start of the Test series.

"The visitors will play India 'A' at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai from 30 October 2012 to 1 November 2012. They will play Mumbai 'A' at the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai from 3 November 2012 to 5 November 2012," BCCI Secretary Sanjay Jagdale said.

England's opponents in the four-day game to be played at Ahmedabad from November 8 will be announced shortly.

"The India 'A' team for the game at the Brabourne Stadium will be picked on Wednesday, 24 October 2012, at Chennai," the Board statement read.

After the four-Test series, England will play a couple of Twenty20 games (on December 20 and 22) followed by a five-match ODI series starting January 11 next year.
