A rather humdrum ODI series between India and England women was concluded with a nail-biting result with the visitors finally getting a win to their name. The win for England has set up the upcoming three-match T20I nicely - all three matches of which are set to be held in Guwahati. The first match of the series will be played on 4th March where both the sides will be looking to register a win and get the momentum going. England and India both have a few injury concerns to deal with which has certainly paved the way for new talent to showcase their skills. The proceedings of the third ODI may well have been the signs of the things to come and we expect a cracker of a contest in the first T20I of the series.
In the last three T20Is India played in New Zealand, their performance wasn't impressive at all primarily due to an under-performing middle order. While the problem was still pretty much apparent in the recently concluded ODI series, the assured return of in-form Mithali Raj into the fold should offer some respite.
Priya Punia's poor form against the Kiwis was a matter of concern and it is highly likely that we will see Jemimah Rodriques back in action at the top with Smrithi Mandhana. Another major for India will be the captaincy shift from Harmanpreet Kaur, who is out due to injury, to Smrithi Mandhana. Although Mandhana has been in superb form with the bat, it will be interesting to see how he deals with the responsibility at hand.
Krishnamurthy Veda also returns to the national side following a brief break and her experience could come in handy in the middle-overs - both with the bat and the ball. On paper and with the home advantage, this Indian side looks pretty good and was the case in the ODI series, it won't be easy for the tourists to get past them.

For the visitors, the key takeaway from the ODI series was the way the likes of Natalie Sciver, Danielle Wyatt, and Heather Knight handled the Indian spinners by deciding to sweep and executing the shot well.
Not unlike India, the English women, too, have been hampered by a few injuries. Having said that, despite the injuries, they did exceedingly well in the third T20I - which they won by two wickets. The win would certainly act as a huge confidence booster for them.
England chased down a total of 205 in the last ODI. The chase was led by skipper Heather Knight and with excellent support from Danielle Wyatt, who scored 56, and Elwiss' unbeaten knock of 33, England got across the line with more than an over to spare.

Historically speaking, England have always been an overall better side as compared to the Indians - both on paper and on the field. They'll derive confidence from their win in the ICC World Cup and the win in the third ODI. They also happened to handle spin well as the ODI series went on which could be a huge deterrent to India's plans. With India still unable to find a concrete solution to their middle-order problems, England look better placed to emerge on top in the upcoming fixture.
