Playing XIs

England Women (Playing XI): Tammy Beaumont(w), Danielle Wyatt, Heather Knight(c), Lauren Winfield, Natalie Sciver, Linsey Smith, Sophia Dunkley Brown, Katherine Brunt, Anya Shrubsole, Alex Hartley, Kate Cross

India Women (Playing XI): Jemimah Rodrigues, Smriti Mandhana(c), Veda Krishnamurthy, Mithali Raj, Arundhati Reddy, Taniya Bhatia(w), Harleen Deol, Deepti Sharma, Shikha Pandey, Radha Yadav, Poonam Yadav

This is what the captains had to say at the toss:

Smriti Mandhana: We'd like to field first. It looks like a tough wicket to bat on. It's an exciting time in Indian cricket, lots of new faces. Komal, Bharti, Anuja and Ekta miss out, and the rest are playing.

Heather Knight: We'd have bowled too. We don't know how the pitch would have played but looks quite dry to be honest. Amy is out with a sickness, Laura Marsh misses out with an injury. Freya Davis misses out too. The shorter format gives us some freedom to go and express ourselves.
