These players have not been able to put in strong performances.
Semifinal 1 of the Commonwealth Games 2022 will witness England Women (AUS-W) take on India Women (IN-W) on Saturday (August 6). England have taken victories in all three league matches and will be a confident unit for this match. On the other hand, the Indian team tasted success in two of their league matches. However, the Women in Blue will be optimistic after a 100-run victory in their final league game.
3 players to avoid for EN-W vs IN-W game
1. Danielle Wyatt
The veteran batter of the highest order has struggled with poor form in international cricket. She has failed to convert her starts into big turns. In the CWG 2022, she has amassed just 33 runs in three innings. In the final league game, Wyatt was able to contribute 1 and failed to get the Three Lionesses off to a good start. However, she is a proven performer in the shortest format with over 2000 runs.
2. Pooja Vastrakar
The talented all-rounder joined the Indian team late after recovering from COVID. In her first appearance in the tournament, she returned with numbers of 0/7 in two overs. Although Vastrakar was frugal, she lacked her original wicket-taking prowess. Furthermore, the Indian batting formation is in good shape, and her batting skills are not expected to be tested in this match.
3. Meghna Singh
The right arm pacer has been pretty average in her international career. She has scalped 14 wickets in as many appearances. In this tournament, she has amassed three wickets with an economy of 7.88, which is one of the highest among the team members. She was also not present in the recent T20I bilateral series against Sri Lanka. There are also other better bowling options in the England team, which have done well to fire the opponent’s batters.
