Players to look out for:
Nat Sciver can hit big. She is what the team will depend on to get the run rate racing. Her thirst for runs along with her ability
Tammy Beaumont - First English Woman to hit back-to-back ODI tons, she could be the game changer for England.
Katherine Brunt is the wicket-taker of the team. She is one of the three players on this current squad who lifted the 2009 world cup.
Anya Shrubsole is the highest wicket taker in T20. She can also pitch in with the ball and give the team the breakthroughs.
Two of the times they won, they were the hosts. England could do it again. But then, that’s what we had said about the Men’s team during the ICC Champions Trophy held earlier this month. Cricket and life - very unpredictable.
