Host England would now be finding ways to apply breaks on Australia win when they would come head to head against each other in the second game of the Women’s Ashes. The match is scheduled to be played at Grace Road Stadium in Leicester on Thursday.
Skipper Heather Knight would be wanting some valuable contribution from her top order after failing to deliver in the first game. The host is expected to display some power pack performance with the bat as well as with the ball.
