Record of chasing teams: Won – 0, Lost – 5, N/R – 0
The Edgbaston in Birmingham has hosted five T20Is thus far and all of them were won by the team, batting first. Hence, sides may avoid chasing on the surface. The venue hosted an ODI of late between Pakistan and England, and both teams amassed 300 plus scores. The conditions will be partly sunny with the temperature around 25 degrees Celsius.
Tammy Beaumont has been in stupendous form in recent times. She has 1572 runs from 94 T20Is at an average of 23.11 to go with one century and nine half-centuries. Recently, the 30-year-old scored a sparkling 59 against Harmanpreet Kaur’s India, though the knock went in vain. The Spirit will be looking up to her for a brisk start in the upcoming encounter.
Probable best bowler of the match
Freya Davies— London Spirit
Freya Davies has made a mark for England in international cricket over the last couple of years. In 14 T20Is, she has picked up 14 wickets at an excellent economy of 6.21. Davies also has a four-wicket haul to her name in the T20 format. She’s most likely to take charge in the powerplay and at the death. The seamer recently played in the T20Is against India.
