England women looking to level Ashes at Coffs Harbour
Heather Knight’s side slipped to a two-wicket defeat in Brisbane on Sunday as Alex Blackwell’s unbeaten 67 steered them to the victory.
PITCH & GROUND ANALYSIS
It’s a batting paradise and helps batsmen a lot also can convert into big tons but we all know women’s matches are low scoring games.But both teams have good potential to go for big and “like Brisbane pitch slow bowlers can play a crucial role once the game started” said skipper Knight.
TEAM NEWS – AUSTRALIA WOMEN
Apart from Bolton, the rest got decent start which means they go with the same line up. All 5 bowlers of Aus W did pretty good job and tahia McGrath who struggled with both bat and ball may be replaced by Kirsten Beams and there are no injury concerns.
TEAM NEWS – ENGLAND WOMEN
Expecting few changes from England’s side after poor batting performance in first Odi. Sophie Ecclestone who is a bowling all rounder my get a chance and either Marsh or Gunn may make a way.No injury concerns.
Prediction: After loosing first Odi the English women are thinking to bounce back in the series and probably they can steal the second Odi and may level the series.So England’s chances are high but we can’t under estimate Australia as they are defending champions and players like Elyssa Perry are very dangerous to the opponents always.
