India are unbeaten in the tournament till now while England were trounced by eight wickets against Windies.

As India and England clash in the second semi-final of the ICC Women's T20 World Cup, the first memory that will flash in the mind of most is that of the 50 overs final. Played at Lord's last year, England were able to eke out a victory after the Indian batting order suffered a late collapse.

Although India would try their best to even up, they would certainly face stiff competition from England. The English opening combination of Daniel Wyatt and Tammy Beaumont complement each other very well. While Wyatt is known for her destructive play, Beaumont acts as a foil to her.

Natalie Sciver and Heather Knight are also accomplished players in the middle order. In the last match when the top order failed, Anya Shrubsole and Sophia Dunkley Brown ensured that the team was able to put some runs on the board.

With the ball, Shrubsole is the undisputed star. At times, Kirstie Gordon can stun batters as well.

Former captain Mithali Raj is expected to be back for the big match after nursing a knee injury. Smriti Mandhana was back to form in the last match against Australia and would desperately want to get more consistent. Harmanpreet Kaur and Jemimah Rodrigues are the other big names in the line up.

Poonam Raut has been exceptional in the bowling department. She will get support from Deepti Sharma, Dayalan Hemalatha and Co. The match's result will boil down to how well the English batters play the Indian spinners.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XIs of both teams.

England- Danielle Wyatt, Tammy Beaumont, Natalie Sciver, Heather Knight, Amy Ellen Jones, Lauren Winfield, Anya Shrubsole, Sophia Dunkley Brown, Sophie Ecclestone, Danielle Hazell, Kirstie Gordon

India- Smriti Mandhana, Mithali Raj, Jemimah Rodrigues, Harmanpreet Kaur, Veda Krishnamurthy, Dayalan Hemalatha, Deepti Sharma, Anuja Patil, Radha Yadav, Arundhati Reddy, Poonam Yadav
