Alice Capsey has top scored for England Women in all three group games and we are backing her to be their highest run scorer against India Women. Sophie Ecclestone has taken five wickets across the competition and is getting plenty of turn from the Edgbaston pitch. She is our pick for England Women’s top wicket taker.
Jemimah Rodrigues hit 56 not out from 46 balls in the last match and she is a strong choice for India Women’s highest run scorer against England Women. With the ball, Renuka Singh Thakur took her second four-wicket haul in the tournament on Wednesday and we expect her to be India Women’s top wicket taker in this game.
With her recent run of strong batting form, backing Alice Capsey to score over 19.5 runs is a good bet.
