The Women in Blue bounced back from their 62-run defeat against New Zealand women by thrashing West Indies women by 155 runs in their previous match. Earlier, the Mithali Raj-led side beat arch-rivals Pakistan women by 107 runs in their opening fixture of the tournament. With four points from three matches, India women are currently placed third in the ICC Women's World Cup 2022 standings.
On the other hand, England women have had a torrid start to the ongoing edition of the ICC Women’s World Cup in New Zealand. Led by Heather Knight, England women have lost all of their three matches so far, suffering defeats against Australia, West Indies and South Africa. The England eves are currently languishing seventh in the eight-team tournament.
EN-W vs IN-W Dream11 prediction
England women have an edge over India women in their One-Day International (ODI) head-to-head record, winning 39 of the 72 matches that they have played so far. India women have secured 31 victories while two matches have ended with no results.
IND-W will look to avenge their heartbreaking nine-run defeat against EN-W in the 2017 World Cup final at Lord’s.
Going by current form, India women will start as slight favourites, however, England women will come hard considering it’s a must-win game for them.
EN-W vs IN-W Dream11 team tips for ICC Women’s World Cup 2022
Top tip: Best batter
India women vice-captain Harmanpreet Kaur has been in great form in the ongoing ICC Women’s World Cup. The 33-year-old has scored 185 runs in three matches at an impressive average of 61.66 and a strike rate of 100.54. Kaur smashed a scintillating hundred against West Indies women in their last match and will look to continue her good form versus England on Wednesday. Harmanpreet has already accrued 245 fantasy points and will be a worthy fantasy pick for this clash at 9.5 credits.
Top Tip: Best bowler
Spinner Rajeshwari Gayakwad has been the standout bowler for India women in the Women’s World Cup so far. The left-arm spinner has claimed seven wickets in three matches at an economy of just 3.36. Having already accumulated 267 fantasy points, Gayakwad is a must-have fantasy pick for this high-profile encounter.
Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
As far as all-rounders are concerned, picking England women’s Natalie Sciver in any fantasy team is a no-brainer. Even though England women have struggled, the 29-year-old all-rounder has scored 127 runs followed by four wickets in three matches so far. Sciver has already amassed 287 fantasy points, the most by any player involved in this upcoming clash.
England women’s Amy Jones pips Richa Ghosh of India for the wicket-keeper spot due to her better batting capabilities. Apart from fulfilling her wicket-keeping responsibilities, Jones has scored 58 runs in the tournament coming lower down the batting order.
EN-W vs IN-W probable playing XI
EN-W playing XI (probable): Tammy Beaumont, Danielle Wyatt, Heather Knight (captain), Natalie Sciver, Amy Jones (wicket-keeper), Sophia Dunkley, Katherine Brunt, Kate Cross, Sophie Ecclestone, Charlotte Dean, Anya Shrubsole
IN-W playing XI (probable): Smriti Mandhana, Yastika Bhatia, Mithali Raj (captain), Deepti Sharma, Harmanpreet Kaur, Richa Ghosh (wicketkeeper), Pooja Vastrakar, Jhulan Goswami, Sneh Rana, Meghna Singh, Rajeshwari Gayakwad
