The T20I tournament opener between India Women and England Women will take place on Friday at the County Ground, Northampton. Coming into the T20I leg of the tour, England will be high on confidence, having defeated India 2-1 in the recently concluded three-match ODI series.
On the other hand, Harmanpreet Kaur-led Team India will take confidence from their win in the final ODI against England Women. Women in Blue will hope to continue their winning momentum when they cross swords with the same rivals in the shortest format of the game.
Historically, India will enter this tournament as underdogs. However, with the likes of Shafali Verma, Smriti Mandhana and Harmanpreet Kaur in their ranks, they are very much capable of upsetting the Heather Knight-led outfit.
