India Women Team News:
After causing problems for Australia Women but failing to win, India Women made two changes for their match against Pakistan Women. Harleen Deol and Rajeshwari Gayakwad were replaced by Sneh Rana and S Meghana. Rana impressed with figures of 2-15, and we don’t expect anything different in this match.
India Women Squad
Shafali Verma, Smriti Mandhana, Sabbhineni Meghana, Jemimah Rodrigues, Harmanpreet Kaur (c), Yastika Bhatia (wk), Deepti Sharma, Radha Yadav, Sneh Rana, Meghna Singh, Renuka Singh, Pooja Vastrakar, Rajeshwari Gayakwad, Taniya Bhatia, Harleen Deol
Players to watch out for:
Smriti Mandhana has scored 87 runs in the tournament on this Edgbaston surface. In her unbeaten innings on Sunday, she hit eight fours and three sixes.
The skipper was not needed with either bat or ball against Pakistan Women, and she gave the rest of her team opportunities. She will undoubtedly be prepared to improve on her first-game performance if necessary.
Renuka Singh Thakur
Renuka Singh Thakur, a 26-year-old medium-fast bowler, has taken the most wickets on this pitch thus far. Six of her last seven international appearances have resulted in wickets.
Possible Playing XI:
Harmanpreet Kaur (c), Jemimah Rodrigues, Smriti Mandhana, Shafali Verma, Yastika Bhatia (wk),Sabbhineni Meghana, Deepti Sharma, Radha Yadav, Sneh Rana, Meghna Singh, Renuka Singh
India Women Team Form
The victory over Pakistan Women on Sunday ended India Women’s disappointing run of two consecutive T20I defeats. The margin of victory was especially impressive.
Barbados Women Team News:
Following their convincing victory over Pakistan Women on Friday, Barbados Women made one change to their starting lineup for the match against Australia Women, with Keila Elliott replacing Aaliyah Williams. We anticipate an unchanged lineup for this ‘must-win’ match.
Barbados Women Squad
Deandra Dottin, Hayley Matthews (c), Kycia Knight (wk), Aaliyah Alleyne, Kyshona Knight, Trishan Holder, Alisa Scantlebury, Shakera Selman, Shamilia Connell, Keila Elliott, Shanika Bruce, Tiffany Thorpe, Aaliyah Williams, Shaunte Carrington, Shai Carrington
Players to watch out for:
The skipper has been the standout performer for Barbados Women in this competition and has mastered the conditions in Birmingham. She was the leading scorer against Australia Women after hitting a fifty in the first game.
Deandra Dottin is the only player in WT20I history to have scored a century and taken a five-wicket haul. However, she has yet to perform at her peak in this tournament.
Shanika Bruce took the only wicket for her team against Australia Women. Her figures of 1-7 from two overs at Edgbaston were impressive given the margin of defeat.
Possible Playing XI:
Deandra Dottin, Hayley Matthews (c), Kycia Knight (wk), Kyshona Knight, Aaliyah Alleyne, Trishan Holder, Alisa Scantlebury, Shakera Selman, Shamilia Connell, Keila Elliott, Shanika Bruce
