Harmanpreet Kaur-led team India’s (IND-W) impressive run in the ongoing Women’s T20 World Cup 2023 came to a halt after enduring a loss against Heather Knight’s England. The Women in Blue are currently walking on a tight rope in terms of the points table as they face stiff competition from the likes of West Indies and arch-rivals Pakistan for the second spot.
With England nearly cementing their spot in the semi-finals of the event after three back-to-back wins, team India faces a must-win scenario in their forthcoming fixture against Ireland. On the other hand, Ireland (IRE-W) have lost all three fixtures and will head back home after the match against Harmanpreet Kaur and Co.
On one side, the Irish team plays for their pride while the other side sees India fighting for a spot in the last four of the marquee event. The two sides last crossed swords in the 2018 edition of the T20 World Cup wherein India comfortably registered a win under the leadership of Mithali Raj. Now, Harmanpreet Kaur will aim to replicate a similar result and get her side to the semi-final of the ICC event.
The 22-yard strip at the St. George's Park has been quite challenging to bat. Additionally, the surface gets slightly slower as the match progresses. This essentially means that the spinners will come handy for both the sides in order to get the crucial breakthroughs.
