“I just hate playing India – they’ve got the wood over me,” Schutt was quoted as saying by the official website of the ICC.

“Smriti and Shafali have got me covered. That six Shafali hit me for in the tri-series was probably the biggest one I’ve ever been hit for.

“There are obviously some plans we’re going to revisit as bowlers. (But) clearly, I’m not the best match-up to those two in the Powerplay. They find me quite easy to play,” she added.

“We’re at that final we’ve been talking about for so long and against India, which is super fitting considering the tri-series we had. It couldn’t really be a bigger challenge for us,” Schutt said.

“It’s not really a bad thing, it’s good we’re going up against a team we’ve played a lot recently and it’s the same for them as well.”
