In women’s cricket, India will take on England in the first T20 International at Northampton tonight.
The one-off Test between the two teams ended in a draw while England won the ODI series 2-1. Test and ODI skipper Mithali Raj was the lone performer in the ODI series as she racked up three half-centuries in three matches, including a 75 not out in the last match that took the team to a face-saving win. However, Mithali is not a part of the T20 International squad.
India have played 19 T20 Internationals against England and have won only four of the matches. They have lost 15. In England, they have managed to win only one out of the five matches they have played against the host.
Second and third T20s of the series will be played on July 11 and 14.
