COLOMBO: India won the toss and elected to bat against Pakistan on Monday in a warm-up match ahead of the World Twenty20.
The match, part of the warm-up schedule drawn up by the International Cricket Council, is the only one of 12 practice games that will be beamed live by the host broadcasters.

The two nations have played just two official Twenty20 internationals against each other, both during the inaugural world event in South Africa in 2007.
