The wicket in County Ground is expected to provide an even contest between bat and ball. The venue has hosted four ODIs and is yet to host a T20I. It generally assists the new ball bowlers, providing seam and shine. The weather conditions are expected to be overcast and temperatures would be around 20 degrees during the day, which is why the first innings powerplay would be particularly challenging for the batters.
Probable Playing XIs:
Sophia Dunkley, Danni Wyatt, Alice Capsey, Amy Jones (c), Maia Bouchier, Bryony Smith, Sophie Ecclestone, Freya Kemp, Sarah Glenn, Freya Davies, Lauren Bell
Smriti Mandhana, Shafali Verma, Dayalan Hemalatha, Harmanpreet Kaur (c), Richa Ghosh, Kiran Prabhu Navgire, Deepti Sharma, Pooja Vastrakar, Sneh Rana, Radha Yadav, Renuka Singh
