England skipper Knight gives thumbs-up to multi-format India series
England's women's team captain Heather Knight has said that India will be "very strong" and "hard to beat" in their upcoming engagements at home as she gave her thumbs-up to the multi-format, points-based series. Under the multi-format system for India's tour, which features three ODIs and three T20Is after the one-off Test, teams will be awarded four points for a win in the Test with two points for a draw and one for no result. A win in the white-ball matches will be worth two points.
"We always want to put on a show, because we haven't had fans in there for so long. India is a very strong side and naturally, there will be a contest there and they're going to be hard to beat so I guess that will hopefully be fun to watch," Knight was quoted as saying in Cribuzz.com.
The one-off Test against India, scheduled to be held from June 16-19, starts an important summer for Knight's team that has an Ashes series followed by a World Cup title defense in New Zealand.
