A relatively high-scoring game is expected at Harrup Park with ample help on offer for the bowlers. The pacers will get some extra bounce and swing early on, keeping the batters on their toes.

Wickets in hand will be key, with both teams likely to prefer batting first upon winning the toss.
Today’s AU-W vs IN-W Dream11 match top picks
Alyssa Healy: Alyssa Healy is one of the best batters in the world, with her ability to provide Australia with fast starts being highly-valued. She is also capable of scoring big runs at the top of the order, which should give her the nod ahead of Taniya Bhatia in your AU-W vs IN-W Dream11 fantasy team.
Jemimah Rodrigues: Jemimah Rodrigues comes into the series on the back of a stunning Hundred Women's campaign for the Northern Superchargers. With prior experience of playing in Australia as well, she is one to watch out for in this game.
Ellyse Perry: Star all-rounder Ellyse Perry provides the balance in the Australian side with her all-round skills. Apart from exceptional ability to swing the ball and hit the right lengths, Perry provides a lot of value in the middle overs as a batter as well, making her a must-have in your AU-W vs IN-W Dream11 fantasy team.
Jhulan Goswami: Veteran pacer Jhulan Goswami is still India's best bet with the ball, given her experience and ability to extract an uncomfortable bounce off a good length. She is still going strong despite her age and should pick up a wicket or two in this game.
