It will be a hot and humid day at Canberra on January 31. The conditions would be windy and the side batting first will have to deal with a track where they won’t be able to force their scoring rate. Fast bowlers are likely to do well in this game. The side batting first will be eyeing a score of 150 plus runs on this track.
Manuka Oval, Canberra is a high scoring venue and over the years we have seen lots of runs being scored here in T20s. The ball comes onto the bat nicely and the smaller size of the ground offers plenty of run scorning opportunities. Slow bowlers have done well here as they create doubts in the minds of the batters.
The pitch is likely to ease on as the game progresses but there would be some assistance for the fast bowlers early on in the game. Most sides prefer to chase than bat first in T20 game these days and hence we expect the side winning the toss to bowl first on this surface.
It is a game between two of the best sides in the world. Both sides would look forward to starting well in this game as a win here would brighten their prospects in the series.
India Women would look to better their record against England Women riding on their recent form and confidence. England Women with their strong line-up aren’t likely to make it easy for their Indian counterparts. Their record against India Women would make them favorites going into this game.
