Women’s Tri-Nation T20I Series 2018
India Women vs England Women, 6th T20I
The Big Picture
It’s been a disappointing few weeks for the Indian Women who had to suffer the ignominy of three successive losses. The encounter against England gives them the opportunity to salvage some pride into their beleaguered hopes.
When: Sunday, 29th March 2018; 10:00 AM Local
India had a great outing as a batting unit in their last encounter against England with the openers in Mandhana and Raj (53), as the Women in Blue registered their highest total of 4-198 in 20 overs. But it is their bowling that lacked any venom as England strolled to a seven-wicket win over the hosts. Pooja Vastrakar, who replaced Dhar was expensive, so were the other bowlers with Yadav, Patil, Kaur all conceding in excess of ten runs an over. The subsequent match against Australia saw them being blown away by a Megh Schutt hat-trick. With three losses on the bounce, India Women have been knocked out of the tournament and will play with English in a bid to restore some pride

The English Women had a great outing in their first encounter against the Southern Stars, as they overcame their arch-rivals by eight wickets. The duo of Sciver (2-29) and Jenny Gunn (3-26) restricted the Aussies to a substandard 8-149, that was chased down with ease. Natalie Sciver (68) and Beaumont (58) steadied the ship after the initial hiccup.
Sciver for her all-round display was adjudged the Player of the Match and will once again gold key against India. Shrubhole who was ruled out from the previous encounter will undergo a fitness test prior to the match to ascertain her availability for the fixture.
