Preview

England Women are set to host Indian Woman in a one-off Test at Bristol County Ground in Bristol from 16th June to 19th June 2021. India Women’s team will be playing a Test match for the first time after almost a gap of seven years. England women on the other hand, have a better experience of playing Tests and might start as favourites in this one-off Test. However, since England Women have never won a Test match at home against India Women, it’ll be interesting to see how the match pans out.

Analysis

India Women last played a Test match in 2014 against South Africa at home, over 7 years back and since then this will be their first time that the women will be seen donning the Test jersey. Led by veteran Mithali Raj, India Women will have their eyes on the record for the most consecutive wins in Women’s Tests. The women’s team have won their last three Tests, with a record of having most consecutive Test wins alongside Australia. A win in this one-off Test against England Women will register them as sole team with the most consecutive wins in the Women’s Test.

However, given the experience that the England Women team holds, especially in their home playing conditions, the Heather Knight-led team might have an edge over India. Since 2014, England Woman have played three Test matches against Australia in Ashes which gives them a clear edge, besides the home factor.
