Players to watch out for –
Opener, Smriti Mandhana was the top run scorer of the previous Commonwealth Games by scoring 159 runs in 5 matches with an average of 39.75. Her performance in the first T20i wasn’t up to her standards and we expect her to bounce back and score some runs for her team.
Our Prediction – Smriti Mandhana to score over 40 runs in the second match.
Alice Capsey has been performing consistently for England in this tour. She was the highest run-scorer for England in the previous Commonwealth Games and is currently the second highest run scorer in this T20i series.
Our Prediction – Alice Capsey to score over 50 runs in the second match.
Sophia Dunkley is the player India should watch out for as she can give England a great start by scoring 30 plus runs.
Harmanpreet Kaur might be lethal for the Indian batting line-up in the upcoming fixture.
Shafali Verma will give India a strong start and we expect she will score above 45 runs.
Renuka Singh was seen in good touch in the previous match and might be the highest wicket-taker in the 2nd match by taking 3 plus wickets.
Pitch Report –
The surface at the Riverside Ground is generally a slower side, but it will still be a good one to bat on. There should be some movement with the new ball, making for a good contest between the pacers and batters. As the game progresses, the pitch should slow down, allowing the spinners to come into play.
The temperature is expected to hover around 13°C on the matchday with 98% humidity and 14 km/hr wind speed. There are no chances of precipitation during the game.
