The return of Harmanpreet Kaur after his injury will strengthen India as they face Australia from Thursday in a T20I series of three games.
Harmanpreet missed the one-day international stage and the day Night test against Australia due to a thumb injury. But she’s back on the team now to add firepower to a batting team that includes a swashbuckling opener in the young Shafali Verma, which complements the extravagance of Smriti Mandhana at the top of the order.
Mandhana comes before the final section of the Australian tour feeling confident after scoring a great First Test 100 less than a week ago. Attention will also be directed to the formally strong Shafali.
The upcoming games will give Harmanpreet the perfect opportunity to find her touch in the shorter formats before the ODI World Championship next year. She remains one of the biggest match winners in the game’s shorter formats and will treasure her chances in the days ahead.
The attacking batsman Jemimah Rodrigues didn’t have the best time with the national team, but will be impressed by her impressive performance in The Hundred « Build self-confidence. The springy Australian playing fields will make Jemimah’s free flowing game easier, something her captain would love to use too, as she’s a natural hitter too.
Harmanpreet Kaur: « We will give everything in the T20 series, they have to win at all costs »
A multitude of all-rounders make Australia an impressive team in the shorter formats, but this Indian team has what it takes to shake the host. For inspiration, the Indians can look back on a steep chase against Australia in a T20I before last year’s World Cup and Harmanpreet’s attack on his bowlers in the 2017 World Cup semi-finals not playing. India is expected to be well served by the likes of Meghna Singh, Pooja Vastrakar and Shikha Pandey.
Australia will rely on its all-rounders to stay ahead. Captain Meg Lanning is confident that a few of her eclectic young stars can make a difference with the bat. Australia will be making a T20I debut to the formidable all-rounder Tahlia McGrath, who made an impressive appearance in the Pinkball game.
On the back of her most recent form with the ball, Annabel Sutherland also advocates the selection, while Nicola Careys good track record will ensure she stays on target.
You can catch the first T20I between India and Australia on Sony Sports Network. The game will also be streamed live on the Sony Liv app.
