Indian Women Team is set to host England Women for the second T20I at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium, Guwahati. After tasting defeat in the opening T20I, the hosts will be eager to bounce back in the upcoming match while the English side will try to seal the series in the second game. The pressure is on the Indian Team to deliver without their regular skipper, Harmanpreet Kaur. Having lost the ODI series, England has this golden opportunity to end this tour on a high.

The Indian Team lost the opening T20I by 41 runs while chasing 161 runs on the board. Having won the toss, the hosts elected to field first, but the decision backfired soon enough as England got off to a flying start. Indian Women have an uphill task ahead of them as they have to win both the remaining matches to clinch this T20I series. Smriti Mandhana, the standing captain, will have to lead by example with the bat if India wants to stay alive in this series. The home side would be eyeing to land a counter punch in the upcoming match to level the series.

Post their ODI series defeat, England Women made an emphatic start to the three-match T20I series and won the first game comprehensively against an in-form team. The visitors batted exceptionally well in the first innings to bring the high-flying Indian team on the backfoot. Indian batting lineup perished under pressure and kept losing wickets on a regular interval during the chase. The English wicket-keeper, Tammy Beaumont, was declared the Player of the Match for her winning contribution of 62(57) runs. England would be hoping for the same kind of dominant performance in the second game to wrap up the T20I series.
