Guwahati(Assam), [India], Mar 03 (ANI): England Women's team captain Heather Knight believes winning the final ODI may help in changing the momentum of her team.
"In first two games we did not get going, it all started slowly and to get that win in the final ODI was really nice for the team and hopefully it will help in changing the momentum for the team," Knight told reporters here.
"Obviously it's a new format, the girls are really excited and it gives us an opportunity to express ourselves and put in a really strong performance in the T20s."
The Women's T20 World Cup is slated to be played next year so the England team would be hoping to assess their playing XI and win the three-match T20 series against India.
"Yeah, obviously T20 World Cup is really close, we would be looking at what our best team is. It is another opportunity for us to play against quality opposition, we have been quite successful against India in the T20's but under the new coach they are a much-improved side".
"Linsey's is our main spinner and we see Sophie as a batter who has the potential of becoming a quality leg-spinner, so Linsey will play as our main spinner. Linsey is quicker in the air, she does not get much bounce but she is really hard to score of".
England would look to avenge the ODI series defeat against India and put up an impressive show in the three-match T20 series.
England will take on India in the first T20 on Monday in Guwahati. (ANI)
