England Women vs India Women, 1st T20 Preview: The match is of T20, where the decision is to be made by playing only 20 overs. The face of the Indian women’s team will have changed in this format.
First T20 between India and England women’s teams today
The T20 battle between the women’s cricket teams of India and England has started from today. The first match of the 3-match series will be played in Northamptonshire today. The only test match played between the two teams was a draw. After this, the 3 ODI series was captured by hosts England 2-1. In such a situation, it will be the effort of the Indian team that by winning the T20 series, they not only equalize the account with England but also end the tour in a great way.
The match is of T20, where the decision is to be made by the game of only 20 overs. The face of the Indian women’s team will have changed in this format. And the biggest change will be seen in the captaincy. Where Harmanpreet Kaur will now be the captain in place of Mithali Raj. Harman’s performance in the one-day series or the Tests played before that was lackluster. In the T20 series, he will not only have to mix the spice of his innings in that fade of his performance, but in doing so, the team will also have to lead the front foot.
Remember the last ODI win and break down!
India won the last ODI against England as Mithali Raj led the team from the front. He played the captaincy innings. When she landed on the wicket, she returned only after winning. Harmanpreet will have to do something similar in the T20 series. The victory in the last ODI of the series against England would certainly have boosted India’s morale. The Indian team would like to maintain that momentum. There are strong batsmen like Shafali Verma and Smriti Mandhana to take on England’s attack in the top order. If Harman made up his mind to return to form in the middle order, then the Indian team could easily play the band of England in this format of cricket.
