Even Yastika Bhatia was able to provide a quick start and hence the problems of batting are solved,. The Indian bowling has performed consistently well in the World Cup and hence no changes are required there. The only worry remains the batting form of Mithali Raj and Richa Ghosh. Thus India would look to go with the same XI that played the game against West Indies
England on the other hand are troubled by the fielding lapses which has to led to their loss in the two previous games and the dip in the form of vice-captain Nat Sciver after hitting a century in the first game. England skipper Heather Knight would hope that this game provides the solution to all her problems. Danny Wyatt needs to fire with the bat and English bowlers must pick wickets early if they are to win this game. In all probability, the English team will also remain unchanged.
