When is England’s next Women’s Cricket World Cup match? How to watch, odds and team news ahead of India clash

Holders England are on the brink of going out of the Women’s Cricket World Cup after three straight defeats, and are on the brink of a shock exit ahead of their next game against India.

Heather Knight’s side return to Mount Maunganui for the second time in three days after they suffered a third consecutive defeat against South Africa at the same venue on Monday.

A fourth defeat would end their defence of the Women’s Cricket World Cup.

How are both sides faring in the tournament so far?

England are still without a win in the tournament as a Marizanne Kemp-inspired South Africa inflicted a three-wicket defeat on Knight’s side on Monday morning.

Despite Tammy Beaumont and Amy Jones passing the 50-run mark, England were hampered by an impressive bowling return of 5-45 from Kemp.

That reduced England to 235/9 and that proved to be an insufficient score as Laura Wolvaardt’s 77 helped the South Africa reach their target with four balls to spare.

The result left England second from bottom in the table - with only winless Pakistan beneath them.

India are currently sat in third place after collecting two wins and suffering one defeat in their three games so far.

The second of those wins came on Saturday as Smriti Mandhana and Harmanpreet Kaur both scored hundreds to help their side secure a mammoth 317/8 against the West Indies.

The Windies could only reach 162 all-out - with Sneh Rana the pick of the Indian bowlers as she posted figures of 3-22 from 9.3 overs.

What is being said ahead of the game?

Speaking after Monday’s defeat against South Africa, England captain Heather Knight told Sky Sports: “It puts us in a tough position. I'll be honest, it's painful losing three close games in a row.

“At times we shot ourselves in the foot with our fielding.

“You can't give a player like Laura Wolvaardt that many chances, because she will make you pay.”

Could England make changes as they look for their first win?

England opener Lauren Winfield-Hill was replaced by Danni Wyatt at the top of the order for Monday’s defeat - but Wyatt failed to make an impression by scoring just three runs from the eight balls she faced.

England must decided whether to retain faith with Wyatt, or hand a recall to Winfield-Hill.

Where and when can I watch the game?

The game takes place at the Bay Oval, Mount Maunganui on Wednesday 16th March.

It is scheduled to get underway at 2pm local time (1am GMT) and is being broadcast live on Sky’s dedicated cricket channel.

Coverage starts on both Sky Cricket and Sky Main Event at 12.30am GMT.

Who are favourites to win the game?

Despite their contrasting starts to the World Cup, England are favourites to come out on top against India.

England are rated at 8/13 to claim the win with Bet365, with South Africa rated at 13/10.
