Preamble

At different points through the standlone Test Match, and the One-Day Internationals that followed, there was a growing feeling that the gap between these sides had grown. A sense that India, for all their progress before the pandemic, had fallen back into the pack, well behind England and Australia, the two world champions.

But a little over a week later, and the visitors have the opportunity to square the overall multiformat at eight points each with Heather Knight’s side, a victory that would see them claim the T20 leg 2-1.

Their win on Sunday at Hove was built around a brilliant fielding effort, dragging themselves over the line after England looked in cruise control in pursuit of 149. Four run outs later, in a collapse of 6/36 in the final six overs, they were left nine runs short.

In the best possible way, this is a different Indian team to the one that started their journey a month ago. If they can get it done at Chelmsford, the belief it will give Harmanpreet Kaur and co, with a World Cup around the corner in February, will be considerable.

As for the hosts, this feels important too. After starting so well, they need to stick the landing at a ground they love more than any other. With matchwinners like Nat Sciver and Tammy Beaumont influential in the T20s so far, there’s no reason why they can’t.

Play begins at 6.30pm BST.
