England Women will be hosting India women for a 3-match T20I series starting today. India Women lost in the Commonwealth Games to Australia Women and had to settle for the silver medal. England Women too lost against India and New Zealand during the Commonwealth Games. The onus will be on Amy Jones and Danni Wyatt to lead the charge for England Women against India Women in today’s first T20I.

Players to avoid for ENG-W vs IND-W Dream11 Match:
Bouchier’s career hasn’t taken much flight yet and in just 11 matches, she has scored 86 runs at an average of 16.66 because of which England Women must not pick her for today’s match.
Vastrakar bats way down the order and is also a part-time bowler for India Women. Vastrakar has 185 runs at an average of 15 in just 30 matches and hence must not be picked as there are better options available for India.
