England Women are set to host Indian Woman in a 3-match ODI series, with the first game being played on June 27 at 3 PM at County Ground, Bristol. India Women managed to draw the one-off Test against England owing to the phenomenal display of cricket by Indian lower order on Day 4. The Mithali Raj–led side will aim to walk off with a trophy win, by winning the ODI series against England whereas England Women would want to mark a series win at home. That being said, it’ll be interesting to see how these two teams play against each other and who comes out on top.
The Mithali Raj–led side faced a massive loss in their last ODI series, having lost 2-1 to South Africa Women earlier this year. However the Women in Blue looked in great form, with the likes of Harmanpreet Kaur, Punam Raut and Mithali Raj amongst others putting massive runs on the board. India players like Smriti Mandhana, Shafali Verma and Deepti Sharma will aim to make match-winning contributions in this game.
On the other hand, England Women walk in the series having won their last ODI Series against New Zealand 2-1 earlier this year. The Heather Knight-led side failed to convert the one-off Test into a win, though they dominated the game throughout. Following which, England Women will be optimistic to win the ODI series at home, with skipper Heather Knight, all-rounder Natalie Sciver and batswoman Tammy Beautmont looking in their best form.
