Women T20 World Cup: India-England clash today, Shrubsole’s record will be Deepti’s eye, know pitch report and possible playing XI

Women T20 World Cup 2023, INDW vs ENGW: Team India has had a good journey so far in the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup being played in South Africa. Team India has played two matches in this competition so far, which it was successful in winning. Harmanpreet Kaur’s team will take on England in their third match on 18 February. If the Indian team defeats the England team by a big margin in this match, then it will occupy number one position in its group. In this match, India’s Deepti Sharma will be eyeing England’s Anya Shrubsole’s record. Deepti needs three wickets to break the record of wickets in her T20 International. Let us tell you about the pitch report and the possible playing XI of both the teams before the match. 

Dipti eyes Shrubsole’s record

England’s Anya Shrubsole is the eighth bowler in the world to take the most wickets in Women’s T20 International. He took 102 wickets in 79 matches in his 12-year T20 career. India’s Deepti Sharma has so far taken 100 wickets in 89 T20 Internationals. In the last match against West Indies, he took 3 wickets. These days she is bowling well. If she takes three wickets in the match against England on Saturday, she will leave Shrubsole behind. 

Pitch Report

This match between the women’s teams of India and England will be played at St. George’s Park in Gekberha. So far 2 matches have been played at this ground. Here the teams batting first have lost both the matches. The last two matches proved that this ground is very difficult for the batsmen while playing first. In the first match played at St. George’s Park, Bangladesh scored only 107 runs while batting first. In the second match, the Sri Lankan team was able to score 112 runs while playing first. It is not that it is difficult to score runs on the pitch here. But it has become clear from the last two matches that it is very difficult for the batsmen to score runs in the first innings. Therefore, after winning the toss between India and England, the team fielding first will be in advantage. 

Probable playing XI of both the teams

India’s Probable Playing XI: Shefali Verma, Smriti Mandhana, Jemimah Rodrigues, Harmanpreet Kaur (c), Richa Ghosh, Devika Vaidya, Deepti Sharma, Pooja Vastrakar, Radha Yadav, Rajeshwari Gaikwad, Renuka Singh.

England Possible Playing XI: Sophia Dunkley, Denny Wyatt, Ellyse Copsey, Nate Siver, Heather Knight (c), Amy Jones, Katherine Brunt, Sophie Ecclestone, Charlie Dean, Sarah Glenn, Lauren Bell.
