India’s bowling has been unimpressive in the two games so far
- England Women have won 19 out of 26 matches against India
- England defeated India by 2-1 in their most recent T20I series in September last year
England and India women are set to lock horns in this Group 2 fixture of the women’s T20 World Cup 2023 at St George’s Park on February 18th. England Women are coming off back to back comfortable victories over West Indies and Ireland. They are the favourites to win this match with odds of 1.57
The women in blue defeated Pakistan by seven wickets in their opening game and went on to beat West Indies by six wickets in the second match on Wednesday. India’s chances of winning this one stand at 2.25
Recent history between two teams
This will be the first time these two sides will compete since the infamous Run-out at Non-striker’s end incident in the ODI series that India won by 3-0 in England. They have shared a competitive rivalry in T20Is as well, with the scoreline reading 3-3 in the previous six games.
Our pick: Both teams look pretty strong on paper and are in top form. England just seems to have an edge. Back England Women to win the match at 1.57!
England have won both their games on the back of strong bowling performances from Sophie Ecclestone and co. Their batting has enough firepower and they bat deep.
India will rely on the big names to step up with the bat. Richa Ghosh has been superb in the finisher’s role. India’s the top order needs to fire collectively, while Deepti Sharma remains the key in the bowling department.
Keep an eye on…
Deepti Sharma had an off day versus Pakistan but returned to her usual routine in the second game, picking 3 for 15 against West Indies. The off-spinning all-rounder has been terrific in T20Is over the last year or so.
Alice Capsey showed what she is capable of, when she hammered 51 in just 22 balls against Ireland. The 18yr old all-rounder has smashed 298 runs in 12 T20Is at an average of 33 while striking at 139.
