England has won the toss and will throw first. No Kate Cross or Issy Wong. That’s a strange choice. However, Lauren Bell will make her T20I debut and will hope to harass the Indian batters early on.

What are the problem areas of India?

  1. India is plagued by a shaky middle order. The infusion of D Hemalatha and Kiran Navgire, who both have many runs to their credit in the domestic circuit, was a move to solve this problem. The duo looked confident in the warm-up, but it still wasn’t enough as they couldn’t get going for long, with India squandering a good start.

  2. Positive: Meghana on the runs. With Jemimah injured, this gives Meghana a chance to underline that she is in great shape and keep herself in the mix of things for next year’s World Cup

  3. India’s inability to close games. India often loses the plot of winning positions, as seen most recently in the Commonwealth Games final. Harmanpreet Kaur says the team is working on all these chinks in the armor. Today marks a fresh start for this side and it will be interesting to see how India uses the clean sheet.

England captain Heather Knight locked himself out of competitive cricket for the next few months to get some much needed rest after hip surgery. She hopes to return to cricket by the end of the year.

Stand-in England captain Nat Sciver has withdrawn from the upcoming series against India to focus on her mental health and wellness. “I’ve been playing a lot of cricket in the last nine months and I’m very emotionally fatigued,” said Sciver. “Elite sport demands a lot and at the moment I cannot perform without jeopardizing my own well-being so I need to take some time off from cricket to focus on myself. It’s the right decision for me and it’s the right decision for the team.”

no Katherine Brunt or. That means, no Shafali confrontations.

There is a 30 minute delay for the procedure in Chester-le-Street. The toss is now at 11:30 PM IST and the game starts at 12:00 PM. No overs lost from now on. This is of course subject to rain interference.


The focus will be on India’s finishing capabilities as it looks set to make a fresh start after the Commonwealth Games high in the T20I series of three women’s games against England, starting at Chester-le-Street on Friday.

It was only last month, not far from Chester-le-Street at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground, where the Harmanpreet Kaur-led side defeated England in the semi-finals, en route to a silver medal in women’s cricket’s first appearance at the Commonwealth Games. .

Although it was a historic achievement, the small loss of nine points to world champions Australia in the final exposed India’s problems.

Chasing a par 162, India appeared to be in control with the blacksmiths of Harmanpreet (65) and Jemimah Rodrigues (33), in what looked like a match-winning partnership. It took just 44 runs from the last five overs, but then lost eight wickets for 34 runs to miss out on historic gold.

Since then, India’s second wicketkeeper, Yastika Bhatia, has been eliminated with some daring inclusions in the uncapped Kiran Prabhu Navgire and Dayalan Hemalatha, the two power hitters.

Maharashtra batter Navgire, who plays for Nagaland, took the spotlight earlier this year with a record 162 not out against Arunachal Pradesh in the Senior T20 Trophy to be snagged by Velocity in the T20 Challenge.

Navgire showed off her power-hitting abilities, beating the fastest fifty in the T20 Challenge in May and it remains to be seen if she will be selected for senior teammate Hemalatha, who is making a comeback after two years and competing in both T20 and ODI squads. is called.

The three ODIs, which will be Jhulan Goswami’s swan song series, will follow the three T20Is.

“We did well in the Commonwealth Games, but there is still room for improvement,” Harmanpreet had said.

India may want to go in with six batters and have the squad ready for the T20I World Cup next February.

“I feel like no matter what format you’re playing, you should have six batters on the side,” she said.

“Having two-three pure bowlers and two-three all-rounders can give you a great balance on the side. We’ve got a few new players to fill in those areas we weren’t in, like in the slogovers, when you need 10 runs or more per over.

“If they can get equal opportunities before the World Cup, then you have a good idea to select the team. We will certainly try new things and at the same time give equal opportunities so that we can form a good team,” added the skipper.

For England, this will be a chance to redeem itself after returning empty-handed from the CWG.

England lost to New Zealand in the bronze play-off. But it will certainly be a challenging task for the host, who will be without his regular skipper Heather Knight who is recovering from hip surgery.

In Knight’s absence, her partner, Nat Sciver, was appointed skipper, but she too has withdrawn citing “mental fatigue”. Katherine Brunt, by the way, was “equipped” for the series.

Wicket-keeper batter Amy Jones will lead the squad in the absence of Sciver and Knight and it’s up to the England youngsters to make a mark.

“We are very motivated… It is a very exciting series that will offer many challenges along the way. As a group, we are really excited to step in and have to adapt and overcome those challenges,” said talented 18-year-old all-rounder Alice Capsey.

After making her Test and ODI debut earlier this year, navigator Lauren Bell will also make her first T20I appearance, joining the young seam bowling duo of Freya Kemp and Issy Wong, who will have the grand task of bringing the Indian power -stop hitters.
