After facing a heart-breaking defeat in the T20I series, India started the ODI series on a high note by bagging a seven-wicket win at the County Ground in Hove. The Women in Blue now need just one win to seal the series, and they would be looking to achieve that early, without taking the series into the final decider game.

Valiant efforts from Jhulan Goswami with the ball, and comprehensive batting efforts from Smriti Mandhana, Yastika Bhatia, and Harmanpreet Kaur helped India clinch a victory. On the other hand, Alice Davidson-Richards and Danni Wyatt showed some composure with the bat in the first innings, which helped England post a competing total.

ENG-W vs IND-W, 2nd ODI, Pitch Report

The St Lawrence Ground in Canterbury has hosted only eight ODIs to date and has put for an equal record. While four games have been won by the teams batting first, as many games have been won by the teams chasing. The surface will be suited more to the batters, and they will be able to put up some runs early in the first innings. Thus, the captain winning the toss might look to defend the score.

ENG-W vs IND-W, 2nd ODI, Probable Top Performers

Probable best batter

Smriti Mandhana:

The Indian opening batter has been at her best in recent times in the white-ball formats of the game. Being backed with a tremendous amount of cricket, Mandhana has only gotten better and has improved with every game. She was the reason behind India’s win in the second game of the T20I series, an led the team to victory with her 99-ball 91-run knock in the first ODI

Probable best bowler

Jhulan Goswami:

The legendary pacer will strive to give her team an early advantage this time as well. In the first game, she was the most economical player with an economy of 2.00 as she conceded just 20 runs in her 10-over spell and also added one wicket early in the powerplay. With an aim to end her two-decade-long career on a high note, she will be at her best.
