England won the toss and opted to bat.
Verma, an aggressive player, made her national team debut in 2019 against South Africa and became one of the key players for the side in the top order; especially in the shortest format of the game.

The Heather Knight-led England side also has a debutant in Sophia Dunkley.
Here are the teams:
India: Smriti Mandhana, Shafali Verma, Punam Raut, Mithali Raj(c), Harmanpreet Kaur, Deepti Sharma, Sneh Rana, Taniya Bhatia(w), Jhulan Goswami, Pooja Vastrakar, Shikha Pandey
