Indian women lost the opening match of the T20 series against the English women by a very convincing margin. It was their fourth consecutive defeat in T20 internationals and highlights the amount of work that needs to be done by the Indian women at this level.
England women will be very pleased with their victory in the last match and they now have a chance to register a series win by emerging victorious in this match. There is nothing that is going to please the side more than a 3-0 victory, if they can achieve it, considering the upcoming Women’s T20 World Cup 2020.
Underestimating India at home can be dangerous and we expect to see a better fight from the home team. Will it be enough for them to keep the series alive?
An all-around poor performance by the Indian women in the opening match of the T20 series raises some serious concerns about the team. There was never a point in the match when it seemed that the Indian women had come in a winning position. In fact, we think they were lucky to not have suffered a heavier defeat than they eventually did.
India is without its regular captain and ace batter, Harmanpreet Kaur, for this series and that meant that Smriti Mandhana moves into the captaincy role. She is another world-class batter at the top of the order but it looks like she is going to have a tough time shepherding the team without Kaur in the middle order.
Smriti Mandhana and Jemima Rodrigues are the two batters to watch out for in the series. They have to set the tone and do the bulk of the scoring, otherwise, we fear the Indian women are going to end up short of runs on more than one occasion.
Mithali Raj is one of the legends of Indian women’s cricket but she does not seem to be a great fit for the T20’s. There was a lot of furor around her and the strained relationship with Ramesh Powar but we cannot help but think that Mithali Raj is not a good fit for the T20 side.
She played 11 deliveries for 7 runs before getting out and did not once try to take on the bowlers or play with some intent. Veda Krishnamurthy and Deepti Sharma are slightly raw but they could benefit from a move up the order.
It looks unlikely India will drop Raj after the first game but she is surely going to be under tremendous pressure to prove her T20 capabilities.
The bowling for the Indian women was also quite poor. Shikha Pandey and Poonam Yadav came away with respectable figures but Deepti Sharma, Arundhati Reddy, and Radha Yadav had a pretty forgettable outing.

England women finally seem to have got some momentum in their tour of India as they win their second consecutive international match. Of course, winning the last ODI after having already lost the series would have been a consolation but this win in the first T20 definitely counts for something more.
England women started perfectly with the bat as their openers put together a partnership of 89 before being separated. Danielle Wyatt and Tammy Beaumont played very well and set the platform for the win.
Beaumont top-scored with 62 and is going to be the main threat to the Indian women in the up0coming match as well. Natalie Sciver was unable to contribute in the last match but we all know what she is capable of as well.
The icing on the cake was put by Heather Knight who scored 40 off just 20 deliveries and showed just how much of an advantage England women have over India in the power department. The English women bat deeper than India and have more power to call upon. If they can continue to negotiate India’s spinners as they did in the previous match then they are going to be very hard to stop.
The bowling was very impressive as well. None of the bowlers gave any loose deliveries and piled on the pressure from the very start. Once Mandhana and Rodrigues were gone, the task was always going to uphill for India but England never even gave them a chance.
Natalie Sciver, Anya Shrubsole, Katherine Brunt, and Linsey Smith all returned excellent figures and are going to be full of confidence heading into the next match.

The side winning the toss is likely to want to bat first

The second T20 between India women and England women is going to be played at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium, Guwahati. Clear weather has been forecast for match day and we should not have any interruptions to the match.
The pitch in Guwahati was helpful to the spinners without being overly so. We think England played well and got a total that was about 20 runs over par in the previous match. A total of around 140 should be competitive in the upcoming game.
India is short on batting power without Harmanpreet Kaur and her loss is going to be very hard. England, on the other hand, has adjusted well to the conditions and appears to be miles ahead of India in the T20 format. India only has the spin card to play right now and it looks unlikely to have the same effect in the shortest format of the game that it did in the ODI’s.
Back England women to win.
