The T20I series between England and India ended in favor of the hosts as England won the series by 2-1 by winning the decider game. India could win only one game, but the lower-order batters showed some great potential and depth by helping India survive through a scare. England will be confident while walking into the ODI series, whereas India’s aim would only be at winning the series and redeeming themselves for the loss.

England announced their squad on Friday and gave maiden call-ups to Alice Capsey and Freya Kemp, who were the standout players for the side in the T20Is. They’ll be the players to watch out for in the ODIs alongside senior pro Sophie Ecclestone who is currently the world No. 1. On the other hand, India will have the services of veteran Jhulan Goswami who will be playing her final international series with an aim to ending her glorious career on a high note.

ENG-W vs IND-W, 1st ODI, Pitch Report

The pitch at the County Ground in Hove has hosted very few international games, and thus the turf will be fresh. Of the three ODIs played at this venue, the average first innings score here is 263, making it a batter-friendly pitch. The ball comes onto the bat nicely, and thus the captain winning the toss would opt to bat first to pile up runs and then defend it.

ENG-W vs IND-W, 1st ODI, Probable Top Performers

Probable best batter

Emma Lamb:

In the last ODI series that England played against South Africa, Emma Lamb emerged as the leading run scorer as she displayed consistent performances throughout the series. In the three games, she notched up two half-centuries and a ton, thereby providing England with the perfect start while batting at top of the order.

Probable best bowler

Jhulan Goswami:

The Indian legendary pacer is currently the leading wicket-taker in Women’s ODIs. With just three games remaining before she ends her magnificent career, she will try to seize the opportunity and give her best. The retirement factor would play a big role in her game against England and all eyes would be on the veteran.
