India's series against England has gone exactly like the way it did against the Kiwis. After winning the ODI series comprehensively, Indian women failed to produce similar effort in the shortest version of the game. With 2-0 down in the series, Indian women will meet the English team for the one final time in the series where they will be looking to redeem themselves by scoring a consolation win in the T20I series. The match is to be played at the same venue on 9th March.
Coming into the last game 1-0 down in the series, Indian Women needed to produce a big effort to level the series, but failed miserably - first with the bat and then with the ball on a surface which had something for the bowlers.
Batting first, Indian women never looked in control and were restricted to just 111 runs despite getting off to an aggressive start. Smriti Mandhana looked in complete control in the first two overs but tried to play one shot too many as her departure in the third over brought two more leaving India at 34 for 3. Mithali Raj and Deepti Sharma tried hard to rebuild, but India kept losing wickets at regular intervals and ended up with a paltry total on the board.
It was twice in a row that Indians were restricted to a sub-120 total. They produced a similar effort in the first innings while chasing 161. As seen in the ODIs as well, the Indian lineup appears to be over-reliant on Smriti Mandhana to do the talking with the bat which has put them in trouble more often than not.
Smriti Mandhana, Harleen Deol, Jemimah Rodrigues, Mithali Raj, Deepti Sharma, Bharati Shrikrushna Fulmali, Taniya Bhatia, Anuja Patil, Shikha Pandey, Ekta Bisht, Poonam Yadav.
Hampered by injuries, this English side has certainly punched above their weight in their last three matches beginning with the final match of the ODI series. They've outperformed India in all departments of the game with almost everyone contributing well to their cause.
The last match was a prime example of teamwork where their bowlers first restricted Indians to an easily changeable total and then batsmen did well to chase it down without too much fuss. Danielle Wyatt and Tammy Beaumont started off well in their chase of 112 with the former playing a dominating role in the 28-run opening stand.
Although England lost four quick wickets after the opening stand, Wyatt played a decisive 64-run knock to guide her team home with five wickets in hand. Along with Lauren Winfield, she slowly but steadily dragged her team closer to the target eventually overhauling it with reasonable ease.
Danielle Wyatt, Tammy Beaumont, Amy Ellen Jones, Natalie Sciver, Heather Knight, Lauren Winfield, Laura Marsh, Sophia Dunkley Brown, Anya Shrubsole, Kate Cross, Linsey Smith.
Quite clearly, Indian middle-order woes haven't really gone away. They are over-reliant on Smriti Mandhana to not only score quickly but also stay at the wicket for long times which isn't really possible every time she comes on to bat. On the other hand, English women have improved massively as compared to how they fared in the opening match of this tour. It has been a commendable effort on their part, especially in the way they've handled the spinners and with a better-balanced side, they are favorites to win the upcoming match and complete a whitewash.
