The battle between the India Women and England Women will resurge in Guwahati again. Under the leadership of Smriti Mandhana, India’s youngest captain ever, the hosts lost the first T20I by 41 runs. The side’s batting struggled in the absence of the regular skipper Harmanpreet Kaur. They failed to chase 160 runs and only managed to get 119 in 20 overs.

The initial collapse during the chase ensured that England always remained on the top of the game. Even though they might have lost the ODI series, the Brits are quite a force when it comes to the shortest format of the game. The English women will look to continue their dominance and seal the series.
