India Women vs England Women 1st ODI
India Women will look to get past their horror form when they meet England Women in the first of the three-match One Day International series at Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium.
It has been a bad patch for India Women. First, they got outplayed in One Dayers against touring Australia, and later struggled in the Twenty 20 Tri-series against Australia and England.
The visiting England side also suffered defeat at the hands of Australia Women in the Twenty 20 tri-series final and lost 3 games in 5. However, they warmed up with a win against India A women in a One Day practice game.
