LIVE Score, India vs England, 2nd T20I at Hove: Visitors lose Shafali, Mandhana in quick succession
England women vs India women, 2nd T20I, LIVE score and updates: Off-spinner Mady Villiers brought into the attack in the 10th over as Knight continues to shuffle her bowlers around. And the move proves effective for the home side as Verma ends up getting caught at wide long on courtesy a fine effort by Nat Sciver as India lose two wickets in quick succession — both set batters departing in space of a few deliveries. Big responsibility on the captain’s shoulders now as she seeks to make the most of the second half of the Indian innings.
Preview, 2nd T20I: It’s a must win game for Harmanpreet Kaur and Co if they wish to keep themselves alive in the three-match T20I series.
After showing tremendous grit, India managed to pull off a draw in the one off Test. Moving onto limited-overs, India lost the three-match ODI series 2-1 and this was followed by a loss in the opening T20I encounter by 18 runs by virtue of the DLS method.
India will heavily rely on their openers Shafali Verma and Smriti Mandhana to do bulk of the scoring in the batting department.
All eyes will once again be on skipper Harmanpreet, who is in the middle of woeful run with the bat. The bowlers would want to put on a much improved show, especially at the death, having conceded 177 in the first T20I.
England seem to have all bases covered at the moment and skipper Heather Knight will be mighty pleased with how they have gone about their business, especially in the limited-overs matches thus far.
India: Harmanpreet Kaur (captain) Smriti Mandhana, Deepti Sharma, Jemimah Rodrigues, Shafali Verma, Richa Ghosh, Harleen Deol, Sneh Rana, Taniya Bhatia, Indrani Roy, Shikha Pandey, Pooja Vastrakar, Arundhati Reddy, Poonam Yadav, Ekta Bisht, Radha Yadav, Simaran Dil Bahadur.
England: Heather Knight (captain), Tammy Beaumont, Katherine Brunt, Freya Davies, Sophia Dunkley, Sophie Ecclestone, Tash Farrant, Sarah Glenn, Amy Jones, Nat Sciver, Anya Shrubsole, Mady Villiers, Fran Wilson, Danni Wyatt.
