With the Harmanpreet skipper who scores most of the running and bowlers doing their job in controlling the flow of rounds in defense, India has little trouble to worry about. If that were the biggest concern, it would be the best way to bring veteran Mithali Raj into plans. Mithali opened the innings for India in the two warm-up matches against England and Windies with the score of 18 and 0. The team management went with a different plan to New Zealand, with Taniya Bhatiya opening alongside Smriti Mandhana and Mithali , dropping to 8, without having the opportunity to kick before finishing the overtime with India, accumulating 194/5.
India and Pakistan played 10 times, India winning eight times, and Pakistan gaining on the other two occasions. Five of them were at a T20 world event where India won three games.
