India hopes to secure a spot in the knockout round of the Women’s T20 World Cup against England.

When playing against England, India’s top order will need to maintain stability in their innings to prevent the pressure from moving down the order to the middle order.

 

On the 18th of February, both the India Women’s team and the England Women’s team will compete in the third match of their respective T20 World Cup campaigns. Team India started off the mega event with a victory over Pakistan by the score of 7 wickets, and then went on to crush West Indies by the score of 6 wickets in their second match. In order for them to ensure that they have a spot in the knockout stage, they will want to keep their winning streak going in the third match.

 

In the Women’s Twenty20 World Cup match that will take place at St. George’s Park in Port Elizabeth, India’s opponent, the formidable England team, will leave no room for error. The women wearing blue will advance to the knockout stage if they are victorious against England, who are ranked second in the world. In the knockout stage, the top two teams from each group will compete against one another to see who will advance to the semifinals.

 

When playing against England, India’s top order will need to maintain stability in their innings to prevent the pressure from moving down the order to the middle order. After making her comeback from injury, Smriti Mandhana appeared to be in imperious touch as she timed the ball to perfection but was unable to go the distance. On the other hand, Jemimah Rodrigues will want to play with consistency, and captain Harmanpreet Kaur has also appeared to be in good touch so far.

 

They will have to contend with the English spin trio consisting of Sarah Glenn, Charlie Dean, and Sophie Ecclestone. In order to beat England, the Indian bowlers will need to be at the top of their game. England will come into the match full of confidence after scoring the joint-fastest fifty runs in the history of the Women’s Twenty20 World Cup.

 

Pooja Vastrakar, Renuka Singh, and the invariably dependable Deepti Sharma have all contributed to an impressive bowling performance for their team. There have been some misfields and dropped catches that the team will want to learn from when it comes to fielding.

 

On the other hand, England, who have also played two games without suffering a loss, are leading candidates to make it into the semifinals as well. England and India both have the same number of points, but England’s net run rate (NRR) is higher, putting them ahead of India in the standings. England’s NRR is +2.497, while India’s NRR is +0.590.

 

Full Squads:

 

India: Harmanpreet Kaur (c), Smriti Mandhana, Shafali Verma, Yastika Bhatia, Richa Ghosh, Jemimah Rodrigues, Harleen Deol, Deepti Sharma, Devika Vaidya, Radha Yadav, Renuka Thakur, Anjali Sarvani, Pooja Vastrakar, Rajeshwari Gayakwad and Shikha Pandey.

 

Lauren Bell, Maia Bouchier, Alice Capsey, Kate Cross, Freya Davies, Charlie Dean, Sophia Dunkley, Sophie Ecclestone, Sarah Glenn, Amy Jones, Katherine Sciver-Brunt, Nat Sciver-Brunt, Lauren Winfield-Hill, and Danni Wyatt represented England in this match. Heather Knight captained the team.
