India Women vs England Women: The India Women’s tour of England will begin on Saturday, September 10, with the opening T20I of the three-match series. Both teams will face for the first time since the Commonwealth semi-finals in Birmingham.
England will be anxious to revenge for their humiliating home series defeat to India. Amy Jones, an all-rounder, will lead a youthful generation of English ladies eager to exhibit their talent on the international arena. Alice Capsey, eighteen, will be a significant player for the Brits, while pacer Lauren Bell will make her T20I debut. Katherine Brunt, England’s most senior player, has been rested for the series.
Meanwhile, Team India will enter the series with the same confidence that they had after thrashing England in their own backyard in the CWG 2022. Harmanpreet Kaur and her teammates would be eager to wrap up the series and show that their success at the games was not a fluke.
The Indian delegation that has traveled to England appears to be similar to the team that won the silver medal in the CWG 2022. Smriti Mandhana and Shefali Varma will open the batting, while Rajeshwari Gayakwad will headline the Indian bowling assault. Jemimah Rodrigues, India’s great all-rounder, will be a significant player for the ladies in blue, since she has been in spectacular form in English conditions, playing in the Hundred tournament.

How the pitch will play?
The batters prefer to play shots on this surface. The outfield in the stadium is quite fast, and the pitch has a regular bounce. The batter benefits from shorter boundaries as well. The wicket also helps the pacers. The ball swings and the enhanced bounce on the pitch help the bowlers in the first few overs of the game. The average first-inning total in this city is 163.
What to expect in middle?
We can expect a good fighting from both the teams. Team India is looking in good form and we can expect 35+ runs in the powerplay, 30+ in death overs, and an overall score of 150+.
England is playing in their home and they surely would like to dominate the Indian bowlers. We can expect a total of 160+ from them if they bat first and a score of 40 in powerplay and 35+ in death overs.
