The Indian vice-captain is known to have injured her finger during the warm-up game against Australia. So Smriti might miss the big clash of the tournament.
There is no official confirmation of the injury from the team management, the stylish opener did not come to bat in India’s last warm-up game against Bangladesh. It might be a tactical move by the Indian team to provide game time to the other teammates. Reports claimed that Smriti was seen with a heavily-bandaged middle finger on her left hand in the warms against Bangladesh.

Smriti missing out will be a great loss for the team. It is also reported that the opener injured her finger during India vs Australia warm-up match. Rumors are passing that the Indian skipper is also having a niggle. Hopefully, both the star batters recover soon and end the trophy drought.
