India Women vs Australia Women Match Prediction

1st T20I, India Tri-Nation Women’s T20 Series 2018

After shocking results in the ODI series against Australia Women, India Women will begin their T20 campaign against Australia Women in the opener of the Tri-Nation Women’s T20 Series. England Women is the third team in the tournament.

It will be a daunting task ahead for Harmanpreet Kaur & Co. to face two strong opponents, although they would take confidence from their 3-1 win against Proteas Women in the five-match T20 series recently.

India would want their star opener Smriti Mandhana to continue her good run and lead the charge with the bat, besides relying on Harmanpreet and Mithali Raj. On the other hand, the Oz team would be looking to keep the winning momentum going.

Date and Time: 22 March 2018; 10:00 AM Local

Venue: Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai
