The Indian women’s cricket team will have pride to play for when they take on England women in the third and final ODI of the series on Saturday, July 3 at the New Road cricket ground in Worcester.
India have already lost the series following back-to-back defeats in the first two ODIs. They suffered an eight-wicket loss against England women in the opening match and the hosts continued their domination by beating the Mithali Raj-led team by five wickets in the second match to seal the series.
Despite poor batting performances in both matches, Mitali Raj has shone the brightest, scoring 131 runs at an average of 65.50. The Indian captain has scored two half-centuries so far. As for the others, the lack of contribution from the middle-order means the Indian eves have struggled to put big totals on board.
England women, on the other hand, have had several contributors with the bat. The likes of batters Tammy Beaumont and Natalie Sciver will be brimming with confidence, while there are as many as two bowlers in Kate Cross and Sophie Ecclestone from England Women who have taken six wickets in two matches.
