England Women vs India Women, 2nd T20I: Fantasy Preview

Here are a few tips that might help you in creating your fantasy team for the second T20I between England Women and India Women

Rain or no rain, India women have been a step behind their English counterparts in the white-ball. In the first T20I, despite picking wickets at regular intervals, a joint-fastest half-century from Nat Sciver, well assisted by Amy Jones set up a record chase for India.

India lost Shafali Varma early. Though Smriti Mandhana hung around for a bit but India lost her and the captain Harmanpreet Kaur before rain intervened giving the hosts a victory by DLS method.

From the country ground in Northampton, the series will move to the county ground at Hove.

Ground Details and Team Combination

There isn’t a lot of data available to infer from for the County Ground at Hove. There has been only one WT20I played here since 2018. Batting first, England managed a mere 121/8 before Australia knocked down the target with ease. However, the wickets to fall were shared equally by pace and spin.

Suggested Team

While you could go for the above team, you also have the option of choosing your own team from Cricket.com’s Fantasy Research Centre. You can use this tool to build your team with the help of algorithms. Based on your preferences, the platform will guide you to create the ideal fantasy XI. 

Captain Suggestion

Katherine Brunt has not been wicket-less in the last seven T20Is. He has taken 11 wickets in these games. Batting at seven, she might get a chance to get among some runs as well. She is expected to fetch the most points by criclytics.


  1. Since 2018, no other women’s cricketer has scored more runs than Smriti Mandhana. Even in the first T20I, she looked impressive but failed to build on. With 1387 runs, she averages a healthy 29.51 and has a strike rate of 130.7 since 2018.
  2. Like Mandhana, Nat Sciver too is among the highest run-getters in T20Is since 2018. No other English batter has scored more runs in WT20Is than her.

Here are the top-10 picks as per criclytics projected points-
