India Women vs England Women, 3rd T20I: Match details, Key Players, and Predicted XI
The Indian Women team is set to host the English Women team for the final T20I at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati. After sealing the series, an exuberant England team will look to clean sweep the Indian Team while the hosts will be determined to finish this series on a winning note. Both the sides will collide with each other for one last time in this Indian tour in the shortest format of the game.
Team India has to tick many boxes in the upcoming match as they are struggling in the T20I format. They have lost another T20I at home series following their series defeat in New Zealand. Smriti Mandhana’s form is also a sight of worry for the hosts who are already without their regular skipper Harmanpreet Kaur in this series. Having lost both their matches at the same venue, India would be eyeing to bounce back in this final game against an in-form opponent.
On the contrary, England Women have made a sensational comeback in this series. After being hammered in the ODI series, the visitors toiled hard to clinch another T20I series. Their bowlers have been on fire in the previous game as Katherine Brunt, and Linsey Smith combined to take five wickets. The ace duo’s heroics made sure that the Indian team was bundled out for 111 on the board. In reply, Daniel Wyatt 64(55) led the chase well and took her side over the line with five wickets in hand. Having won the T20I series, England would be hoping to whitewash the hosts heading into the final game of this Indian tour.
