England Women are set to lock horns with Indian Women in the 2nd ODI on June 30th at The Cooper Associates County Ground, Taunton. The Heather Knight -ed side lead the series 1-0 after securing a comfortable win against India in the 1st ODI. After restricting India Women to 201/8 in 50 overs, Tammy Beaumont 87*(87) and Nat Sciver 74*(74) smashed half-centuries to lead them to an easy victory. The Indian side would look forward to bounce back and limit the English Women, from sealing the deal in the 2nd ODI of the 3 match series.
Having won the 1st ODI through an all-round performance by the batters and bowlers, England will aim towards clinching the series in the 2nd ODI. Among the batswomen and all-rounders, Tammy Beaumont and Nat Sciver will be of prime importance to the Heather Knight-led side. Coming to the bowlers, Sophie Ecclestone and Anya Shrubsole look like the best picks given their current form.
Mithali Raj-led India Women would definitely look forward to bounce back in the 2nd ODI and take the series till the decider in the 3rd ODI. The balanced duo of young gun Shafali Verma and experienced Mithali Raj will be crucial for Team India to win the game. Besides, Harmanpreet Kaur and Jhulan Goswami’s contribution in their respective departments can also help India achieve their first win of the England tour.
