ENG-W vs IND-W 2nd ODI Match Prediction & Betting Tips
England Women will take on India Women in the second WODI at St Lawrence Ground, Canterbury. The second game of the series begins at 13:00 local time on Wednesday 21st September.
After winning the WIT20 series 2-1, England Women were well beaten by India Women by seven wickets and 34 balls remaining in their opening WODI in Hove. Not only did England’s batters not score runs quick enough, but their bowlers lacked an ability to trouble the opposition batters.
Danni Wyatt batted at number five in the opening WODI of the series and impressed with 43 runs from 50 balls. She was the most comfortable of all the batters with the four players who went before her with strike-rates from 33.33 to 67.85. All-rounder Alice Davidson-Richards top scored with 50 not out from 61 balls.
Kate Cross was England Women’s standout bowler in Hove. She took the most wickets (2), had the best economy rate and bowled the only maiden of the innings. Charlie Dean was the only other bowler to bowl all 10 overs and to take a wicket.
The inconsistency, particularly in the batting department, continues for this inexperienced England Women’s side. They have not won or lost back to back games across India’s tour as yet.
It was a very impressive performance from India Women in Hove with the visitors excellent value for their convincing victory. Only one bowler, Pooja Vastrakar, struggled to maintain control, before the top order batters dominated the England Women’s bowlers.
There were half-centuries for opener Smriti Mandhana, keeper-batter Yastika Bhatia and captain Harmanpreet Kaur in the opening WODI of the series. Mandhana’s 91 runs from 99 balls set the foundation before Kaur took her team home with 74 not out from 94 balls.
Six of the seven India Women’s bowlers picked up at least one wicket in Hove with some excellent economy rates alongside the dismissals. Jhulan Goswami produced figures of 1-20, including two maidens, with Deepti Sharma also impressive with figures of 2-33 from 10 overs.
India Women continue to fight back across this tour. They have lost two games but won the subsequent game on both occasions.
