Hello and welcome to the live coverage of the third and final ODI between England and India in Taunton. It is Lavanya Lakshmi Narayanan and I take you through the day with the help of my colleague Ayan Acharya.
Update: Cover is still running on Worcester. An inspection must take place at 15:45 IST.
SERIES UPDATE: India need a win today to stay afloat for a series win (via points). As things stand now, England lead the points ladder 6-2 with the Test draw and two ODI wins. If India lose, he can only then try to level the series.
India has several questions to set itself up for when it comes to this ODI. How many more chances does Harman get? Should the opening combination be adjusted? How is India working on a slow strike rate especially in its middle order? Should it try another custodian? Much remains to be seen when the teams face the field today. Before that, here’s the preview of the game for this game.
An Indian women’s team that is under fire will be desperate to address the long-running slim patch of vice-captain Harmanpreet Kaur, as it wants to stop a looting English team from getting a 3-0 result in the final here on Saturday. To complete ODI.
After losing six of the last seven ODIs, Mithali Raj’s team finds it difficult to stop the rot, as it faces the prospect of another one-sided series defeat after being knocked down by South African women at home. is.
While the bowlers did their game in the second one-day match with a much better performance, the batting made the team drop again with captain Mithali to do all the heavy work, which also affected her game.
One of the most important aspects that has been overlooked over the past four years has been Harmanpreet’s poor performance.
Harmanpreet, whose epic 171 against Australia in the 2017 World Cup became an important moment for the country’s women’s match, has since declined from the boiling point.
In the 28 WODI matches (in which she has not been able to bat six times) since the final of the World Cup in 2017 against England, the Indian vice-captain has scored only two fifties and two scores above 40, which is the maximum pressure on the scoreboard .
With Mithali and like Jemimah Rodrigues, Punam Raut, Deepti Sharma and Taniya Bhatia not having the ability to play the showdown, a lot of pressure is being built on the starting servants Smriti Mandhana and the teenage sensation Shafali Verma.
For India, Mithali scored half a century with her strike rate in the 60s, but she left no choice because in both matches the Indian batsmen splashed on dots like millionaires.
It will be interesting to see if coach Ramesh Powar has a solution for Harmanpreet’s skinny patch, and if he thinks he can place this series, she’s going to have to smell the coffee, as the national team has for years a non-performer can afford.
In the first game itself, 181 points were consumed against a bowling attack that Katherine Brunt, Anya Shrubsole, Nat Sciver, Kate Cross and Sophie Ecclestone had.
It was relentless with its tight lines, and it was Jhulan Goswami’s cameo that helped India cross 220 in Taunton.
As wicketkeeper Bhatia is not the most reliable victim in the shorter format, and Deepti cannot play the big shots towards the end, it could again depend on Mandhana and Shafali, who are half a century plus in the Test as well as the second gave place. WODI.
Indrani Roy, an exciting domestic talent, had to be tried as an enforcer, but Bhatia’s better holding skills earned her the voice.
In the bowling division, both Goswami and leg-spinner Poonam Yadav were brilliant, but the scoreboard pressure was always on India, who were at least 40 runs short on a good batting line-up.
With Tammy Beaumont and Sciver in good condition, home side captain Heather Knight wants to insult the injury because she has a good score against the Indian attack.
Proverbs Raj update: The Indian captain is today able to take the field in the third ODI. This will be her last game of the series as it moves to the T20Is immediately thereafter. Mithali has the chance to make this one memorable. She is 13 runs away from the highest scorer in international women’s cricket.
The weather forecast does not seem too encouraging. It’s cloudy and the BCCI Twitter handles shared images of light showers on County Ground in Worcester. We will keep you informed of the weather as we find out.
