IND-W vs AUS-W 1st T20I Preview: Leaving behind the disappointment of the ODI series, the Indian women’s team will go out to win the first T20 International match, will clash with Australia – Bollywood Keeda

Sports Desk. After defeating Australia in the Test match, disappointed with the clean sweep in the three-match ODI series, the Indian women’s team would like to make a comeback in the three-match T20 series starting from Friday (January 5). Captain Harmanpreet Kaur and her team are fully prepared for the first T20 International match to be held at DY Patil Stadium (Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy, Navi Mumbai). In front of a strong team like Australia (IND-W vs AUS-W 1st T20I), Indian players will have to learn from their mistakes and take the field. On the other hand, the Kangaroo team is full of confidence and its players seem confident of a positive start to the T20 series. Of the 31 T20 matches played so far between the two teams, Australia has won 23 and India has won only seven, while the result of one match has not been achieved.

Let us tell you that explosive batsman Shafali Verma, who sat on the bench in the last two matches of the ODI series, may return to the Indian team for the first T20 match. She will open the innings with left-handed Smriti Mandhana. The biggest matter of concern for the team is the form of captain Harmanpreet. His bat remained silent in the three-match ODI series against Australia and this right-handed batsman scored only 17 runs. In the middle order and lower middle order, big shots will be expected from wicketkeepers Richa Ghosh and Pooja Vastrakar. The onus of fast bowling will again be on Renuka Singh Thakur. He will get the support of Titas Sadhu and Pooja. Deepti Sharma and Shreyanka Patil may get a chance among the spinners.

It is noteworthy that Australian batsmen are in excellent form. Opening batsman Phoebe Litchfield played explosive innings of 78, 63 and 119 runs respectively in the three matches of the recently concluded ODI series. She would like to give a good start to the team along with captain Alyssa Healy. Healy has also shown signs of returning to form by playing an inning of 82 runs in the last ODI. After the destructive opening pair, power heater batsmen like Ellyse Perry, Tahlia McGrath, Annabel Sutherland have the ability to devastate the Indian bowling order. In such a situation, along with achieving initial success, Indian bowlers will have to give shocks to Australia at regular intervals. Australia’s bowling is much stronger than India’s.

Probable playing eleven of both the teams for the match

India : Harmanpreet Kaur (captain), Smriti Mandhana (vice-captain), Shefali Verma, Jemimah Rodrigues, Richa Ghosh (wicketkeeper), Deepti Sharma, Pooja Vastrakar, Shreyanka Patil, Saika Ishaq, Renuka Singh Thakur, Titas Sadhu.

Australia : Alyssa Healy (captain & wk), Phoebe Lichfield, Ellyse Perry, Beth Mooney, Tahlia McGrath, Ashley Gardner, Annabel Sutherland, Georgia Wareham, Alana King, Kim Garth, Megan Schutt.

The match will be played from 7 pm Indian time.
