Following a narrow defeat in the 1st ODI, the England women’s team bounced back to register an emphatic win against India in the 2nd ODI to level the 3-match ODI series 1-1. The teams are now ready for the decider tomorrow in Nagpur.
This will be India’s chance for a series win after a disappointing performance in the T20I tri-series that took place last month involving Australia and England.
Though England leveled the series by registering an eight wicket win in the second game, something to keep in mind is that India have never lost a home series against England, and when they take the field in the series decider, their aim will be to keep that record intact.
The 3rd ODI will be played at the same ground as the first two games and the teams should have enough of a clue by now about how the pitch is going to play. We don’t expect much team changes.
India: Mithali Raj (captain), Harmanpreet Kaur (vice-captain), Smriti Mandhana, Deepti Sharma, Jemimah Rodrigues, Dayalan Hemalatha, Veda Krishnamurthy, Devika Vaidya, Jhulan Goswami, Shikha Pandey, Pooja Vastrakar, Ekta Bisht, Poonam Yadav, Sushma Verma (wicket-keeper), Rajeshwari Gayakwad.
England: Heather Knight, Tammy Beaumont, Kate Cross, Alice Davidson-Richards, Sophie Ecclestone, Tash Farrant, Katie George, Jenny Gunn, Alex Hartley, Danielle Hazell, Amy Jones, Nat Sciver, Anya Shrubsole, Bryony Smith, Fran Wilson, Danni Wyatt.
