England Women vs India Women Prediction and Pick

England have the upper hand when it comes to head-to-head records. They have won 17 of the previous 24 meetings in T20I cricket against India, while the women in blue have had the last laugh on only five occasions, with two games getting abandoned. Given that they have not put a foot wrong so far in this competition, we have predicted Natalia Sciver’s team to win this match and book their place in the final.

Hosts England Are Favourites, but Rejuvenated India Can Pose a Strong Challenge

The English women will take on the Indian women in the second semi-final of cricket at the Commonwealth Games 2022. The match will be played on Saturday, 6th August, at Edgbaston in Birmingham.

Hosts England are among the favourites to win the gold medal, and looking at the way they have played so far, it is certain that they are capable of beating any given side. Natalie Sciver’s girls started their campaign with a five-wicket win over Sri Lanka, before they defeated South Africa by 26 runs. In their last match, they handed New Zealand a seven-wicket defeat.

India, on the other hand, did not have a great start as they suffered a three-wicket defeat against Australia in their first match. However, their second game saw the women in blue beating arch-rivals Pakistan by 8 wickets, while in their last match, India secured a massive 100-run win over Barbados.

Team News

Given that they have won all of their three group stage matches, England do not really have a reason to make changes to their playing XI. However, if they still want to, there is room to make one tweak. Freya Kemp could not pick up any wicket in the last match, while if we consider statistics from all of England’s three matches, she happens to be the only bowler who has conceded more than six runs per over. Hence, she could be dropped to the bench in this game. Her namesake, Freya Davies is a good alternative England possess in their ranks.

Like the English side, it will not be surprising to see one change in their Indian team despite their clinical display in the last match. Owing to her failures in the first two matches, wicketkeeper Yastika Bhatia was dropped for Taniya Bhatia in the last match, but the latter could not utilize the opportunity. Taniya struggled to get a move on and could score only 6 runs from 13 deliveries. Hence, in this fixture, India could revert back t what was their ‘Plan A,’ and reintegrate Yastika Bhatia into the team.

Key Players

Alice Capsey: The English side is packed to the brim with quality batters, in the likes of Amy Jones, Natalie Sciver and Danielle Wyatt. However, among all the big names, youngster Alice Capsey has been the Lionesses’ most impressive batter in this competition. The 17-year-old has scored 117 runs in three matches, maintaining an average of 39 and a strike rate of 115.84. Her best knock came in the match against South Africa, where she struck a half-century.

Renuka Singh: Like England, India also have had some fantastic performers with the bat, especially Shafali Verma and Smriti Mandhana. However, if we are to pick India’s best performer in this competition, it will have to be a bowler – Renuka Singh. The pacer is doing amazing things with the ball and is currently leading the wicket-taking charts for her team, having scalped 9 wickets in three matches. She has scalped two four-wicket hauls already – against Australia and Barbados. Besides that, the lady from Shimla is also very miser in terms of conceding runs, having maintained an economy rate of only 4 runs per over.
