India hope to have a similar but not bothering to start a mid-workout, when you consider how high Mithali Raj said Dayalan Hemalatha and Deepti Sharma before the start of the series. In India, players in addition to Mandhana and Harmanpreet need to get up, and there is no better opportunity than in a series-clinching victory away from home.
