IND-W vs ENG-W 1st Test Dream11 Team

IND-W vs ENG-W 1st Test: After the conclusion of the three-match T20I series, England will be playing their only test match of the series against the host India at Dr DY Patil Sports Academy, Navi Mumbai. India Women are all set to take on the visitors in the only test starting tomorrow 14 December 2023 at 09:30 AM IST. This post reads the IND-W vs ENG-W 1st Test Dream11 Prediction, Dream11 Team, and Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy Pitch Report.

India has to win the test match in order to salvage something from the series after England defeated them 2-1 in the T20I series. India had played two Test matches in June and September of last year in England and Australia, and both of those four-day matches ended in draws.

The Indian women’s team has not had enough red-ball exposure; in comparison, England have had more recent red-ball experience, since their previous game was against Australia in the Women’s Ashes in June of this year.

Vice-captain Smriti Mandhana stated that Muzumdar, who was named head coach in October of this year, had been preparing the Indian women with the red ball despite their absence from red-ball cricket for the last 24 months. The team participated in a four-day intrasquad game in addition to a training camp in Bengaluru.

England have more red-ball cricket experience but India is actively having practice sessions with red-ball under coach Muzumdar. We must anticipate healthy competition between them. Down below is the IND-W vs ENG-W 1st Test Dream11 Prediction, Dream11 Team, and Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy Pitch Report.

The Dream11 Prediction for the IND-W vs ENG-W 1st Test match is to make a balanced Dream11 Team. Pick more batters than bowlers but don’t forget to include spinners in your team as the conditions will greatly support them. Smriti Mandhana and Tammy Beaumont are the batters to watch out for, and Renuka Singh and Sophie Ecclestone are the bowlers to watch out for in the test match.

Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy Pitch Report

The pitch and outfield have been prepared with plenty of care – 200 tonnes of soil was flown in from South Africa to ensure a bouncy and true pitch. Trusted bounce off the surface, batting-friendly conditions, and usually flatter surface but the spinner may produce some spin after the second day. Expect good runs on the first two days and batting first will be a wise choice after winning the toss.
