Preview: India Women are set to face Australia Women in the 2nd of the 3-match T20I series at Carrara Oval, Queensland on October 9, 2021. With the 1st T20I being abandoned due to rain, a win in the upcoming T20I will give a much-needed edge in the series. Both the sides will aim to capitalise on the opportunity and make the most of it.
Analysis: The Australian side will look forward to take a lead in the 2nd T20I with an all-round performance from the women in yellow. Batters Beth Mooney and Meg Lanning are top batting picks from the side with the former being a dependable vice-captain choice. Additionally, wicketkeeper batter Alyssa Healy is a must-have in one’s fantasy team and an excellent captain choice. Besides, Sophie Molineux’s form and Ashleigh Gardner’s performance in the 1st T20I can also result in some fantasy points.
From the Indian side, Smriti Mandhana and Jemimah Rodrigues are the top batter picks from the side with the former being a bankable captain choice. Jemimah Rodrigues’ performance in the 1st T20I was crucial for the Indian side which makes her a dependable pick. From the bowling end, Rajeshwari Gayakwad’s and Pooja Vastrakar’s contributions can also fetch good fantasy points.
