England Women vs India Women – Team Previews
Inability to capitalize on crucial times may frequently lead to a dramatic turnaround in fortune; and no team understands this more than England Women. They were defeated by India Women in the lone test match, and then went on to lose the second match of the series in the shorter form of the game. They were ahead for the majority of the time on both occasions.
England Women have been a better overall team, which is evident in the series outcomes thus far. Having said that, their confidence would have been shaken by the setback in the previous encounter. They were ahead for the majority of the game, whether with the ball or with the bat, but couldn’t reach home.
Despite the defeat, Eng Women had enough to be happy about. The manner their bowlers limited India Women after Shafali Verma got them off to a great start was admirable. Also, England Women have been quite steady on this trip; and their loss in the previous match may have served as a wake-up call.
England Women have one of the most well-balanced teams in the world. Nat Sciver and Katherine Brunt, two talented all-rounders, give their team with excellent balance. Tammy Beaumont, Natalie Sciver, Amy Jones, and Heather Knight have all been outstanding. Overall, they have a good team, and a single setback should not hurt them too much. They’ll be anxious to get back to winning ways and bring home the title. Even the joyful India Women team would find it tough to get past them.

Despite not winning as many matches as they would have liked, India Women have fought well throughout the series. They initially drew the test match, which many thought would be a one-sided snoozer. While they struggled in the ODIs, they have mostly completed their task in the T20Is.
In the second match of the series, India Women batted first and rode high on a superb opening combination of Smriti Mandhana and Shafali Verma. Verma has been outstanding on this tour and will remain England’s most dangerous threat. It was also encouraging to see contributions from other players, as India recorded a decent total of 148 runs on the board. The bowlers performed an outstanding job in limiting England to 140 runs on a surface that didn’t provide much for the bowlers.
On paper, India Women have a decent side, but execution has been lacking. Besides, we saw them lack intent with the bat in the last match, which is something they’ll need to work on. If India Women improve their batsmanship, they would pose yet another strong challenge to the hosts.

England Women vs India Women – Betting Tips
Eng Women have definitely been the superior team in the series thus far, but their loss in the last match has certainly re-balanced things. While England is playing at home and has a stronger team, at least on paper, India Women have momentum and will be full of confidence. Considering all factors, we feel England is better suited to manage pressure and, as a result, are our selection to win this next match.
