India Women and England Women will be facing off each other for one final time in the ongoing ODI series. Though the home side have already won the series, the two Championship points will be at stake in this game. India Women wouldn’t be wanting to lose the opportunity of clean-sweeping the series either. England Women, on the other hand, have looked clueless so far in the first couple of matches.

While it was the spin-attack which strangled them in the series opener, the pace bowling duo of Jhulan Goswami and Shikha Pandey shared the spoils between them. England’s batters have been at fault in both the games not supporting their bowlers who have done a decent job. The World Champions will be playing for pride and get a win under their belt ahead of the three-match T20I series.
