Important News :
- Poonam Raut was dropped from squad and Devika Vaidya added. Already Vaidya scored a century in practice match and she also took a wicket. Her playing chances are very high in this match.
- We are thinking Shikha Pandey will play this match. Vastrakar is batting well but her bowling is not good.
- Either Bikst or gayakwad will play.
- Heather Knight will miss this match with an injury. She remains sidelined by the hamstring injury.
- In the absence of Knight, Shrubsole will lead the side.
- Expecting Smith and Davidson will make their debut.
- In wicket keeper section Beaumont is first pick because she is in very good form. Amy Jones is second choice and she played well in tri series. Beaumont can open the innings and Amy Jones can bat at 5th position. Indian wicket keeper Sushma bats down the order that’s why she is not safe.
- In batting section from India Mandhana and Mithali should be mandatory. You can also try Rodrigues becasue she is also a good player. Harmanpreet Kaur is not in good form and think once before you pick her. From England Wyatt is important. Try Wilson and B. Smith in grand leagues.
- In all rounder section from India Deepti Sharma is only safe. Devika Vaidya has high chances of playing this match and she has been taken by 24.48 %. If she plays well, you can easily win the match. From England Sciver and Gunn should be mandatory. try Elwiss and Davidsojn in grand leagues.
- In bowling from India Goswami and Poonam Yadav are only safe. Don’t know who will play between Bikst and Gayakwad. From England Shrubsole should be important. Ecclestone is another good and safe player.
