India Women vs England Women 2019 1st ODI: After leading India to a historic ODI series win in New Zealand, Mithali Raj and Co. will look to continue the winning momentum against a strong England side as the women in blue look to add some more crucial points in their kitty to solidify their position in the ICC Women’s ODI Championship table. The two teams will meet each other in the first encounter of the three-match series beginning Friday (February 22) at the iconic Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. India have begun the new ICC championship cycle with three series win on foreign soil under their belt. The bandwagon started with a fin win over South Africa in 2018, besides another 2-1 victory over England in Nagpur last year. Barring a whitewash against Australia at home, the Indian women’s team had a stellar run in the 50-over format and it will give them a significant boost ahead of this home leg against reigning ODI champs England.

However, the home advantage is negated by a couple of crucial setbacks. The exploits of ICC Player of the Year Smriti Mandhana and the prodigious Jemimah Rodrigues at the top of the order have often left the fragile middle-order with little or no work, thereby masking a key chink in their armour. And now, the home side have lost their vice-captain Harmanpreet Kaur to an ankle injury. The bulk of batting responsibility will again be on Mandhana and Rodrigues, with skipper Mithali Raj possibly dropping down a slot in a relatively inexperienced middle-order.
