Mumbai: Feb 3, 2013

India women won the toss on Sunday against England and elected to bowl in ICC Women’s World Cup’s Group A match at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai.

India won their first Group A match against West Indies. However, England was handed a shocker when Sri Lanka deafeted them.

Earlier, on Saturday India skipper Mithali Raj was unperturbed about her team playing its first day game in the ICC Women’s World Cup against holders England in Mumbai on Sunday, as she felt it won’t make much difference barring some assistance that the bowlers would get in the morning.

“I don’t think there is a lot to get adjusted to, because it is not real winter, like what we get to see up north where the dew factor or moisture is heavily in the air.”
