  • India won the first ODI by 7 wickets
  • England beat India 2-1 in T20 series
  • Shefali Verma’s form will remain a matter of concern

ENGW vs INDW 2nd ODI: The Indian women’s cricket team will be eyeing to win the ODI series after losing the three-match T20I series on the ongoing England tour. After winning the first ODI by 7 wickets, Team India would like to capture the series by winning the second match in Canterbury on Wednesday. The Indian women’s team had earlier lost the T20 series 2-1. The Harmanpreet Kaur-led team will not want to repeat the mistake there in ODIs. Also, this is a farewell series by experienced bowler Jhulan Goswami, so there can be no bigger gift than a series win in England.

The responsibility of the Indian batting order will once again be on captain Harmanpreet Kaur and vice-captain Smriti Mandhana in this match. Both the players played brilliant half-centuries in the last match. Apart from this, wicket-keeper batsman Yastika Bhatia also scored a quick fifty in the first ODI. So there will be a lot of expectations from them too in this important match. At the same time, the form of Shefali Verma, the second opening batsman who landed with Smriti, is a matter of concern. The team management will definitely discuss with them and hope for some special performance in this important match.

Will Renuka Thakur return?

By the way, in the first ODI, the Indian bowlers performed brilliantly. Experienced Jhulan Goswami, where he was a wicket-taker for just 20 runs in 10 overs and he also got good support from Meghna Singh. At the same time, the spin of Sneh Rana and Deepti Sharma was also amazing. But Renuka Singh Thakur, who was the star of Commonwealth Games in this match, could not get a place. Now in this match it has to be seen whether Renuka gets a chance or not. Renuka has come to be called the swing master of the women’s team and if she gets a chance, who goes out will also be a matter to be seen. Because Pooja Vastrakar can do wonders with the bat in the last. Harleen Deol also took a wicket in the last match.

Good chance to beat injured England!

The host England team is worried about the exclusion of three players, including the injured captain Heather Knight, from this series. In such a situation, India has a good chance of defeating England on their soil. Amy Jones is captaining the team, who herself is failing to make a significant contribution with the bat. The problem B of India’s middle order has been there for a long time and the team management was unable to find a solution even in three T20 matches against England. Jemima Rodriguez may have been included in the team but her fitness has been questioned. She withdrew from ‘The Hundred’ competition due to injury.

The squads of both the teams are as follows:-

India: Harmanpreet Kaur (Captain), Smriti Mandhana (Vice-Captain), Shefali Verma, Sabineni Meghna, Deepti Sharma, Tania Bhatia, Yastika Bhatia, Pooja Vastrakar, Sneh Rana, Renuka Thakur, Meghna Singh, Rajeshwari Gaikwad, Harleen Deol, Dayalan Hemlata, Simran Dil Bahadur, Jhulan Goswami, Jemima Rodriguez.

England: Amy Jones (Captain), Tammy Beaumont, Lauren Bell, Mya Boucher, Alice Capsi, Kate Cross, Freya Davis, Elise Davidson Richards, Charlie Dean, Sophia Dunkley, Sophie Ecclestone, Freya Kemp, Issie Wong, Danny Waite.
