14.33 IST: TOSS! India skipper Mithali Raj has won the toss and they will bat first against Pakistan. Mansi Joshi replaces Shikha Pandey in the Indian playing XI. 

A potentially high-voltage encounter is on the cards when India take on Pakistan in the ICC Women's World Cup at the County Ground at Derby in England today.  The Indians are clear favourites in all three departments. Leading is the batting department where the top three Indians, Mithali Raj, Smriti Mandhana and Poonam Raut have scored a total of 399 between them in their previous two matches of this tournament against England and West Indies.

In contrast, the Pakistanis have scored a total of 107 in their last match against England in Taunton. In the bowling department, a healthy mix of experienced pace and economical spin bowling leads the way for India.

In the past encounters with Pakistan at the World Cup, India have maintained a 2-0 advantage in head-to-head records.

They recorded their first victory in 2009 by 10 wickets at the Bradman Oval where Harmanpreet Kaur made her debut.

The second victory was earned in Cuttack by six wickets in 2013. Overall, in the history of women's One-Day Internationals (ODI), India have faced Pakistan seven times and won on all occasions.

India Skipper Mithali Raj is in very good form currently and interestingly scored her first World Cup century against Pakistan at the Barabati Stadium, Cuttack in 2013.

Pakistan's leading scorer Mahida Khan has scored a total of 82 runs in 107 balls across two matches -- against South Africa and England. In comparison, India's left-hand batter Smriti Mandhana has scored a staggering 196 runs in 180 balls with one century against West Indies and one half century against England.

On the other hand, Pakistan have a total of 313 in their last two matches against England and South Africa. While this seems as not so encouraging for Pakistan, another upset for the team is absence due to hand injury of highest ranked ODI batter, Bismah Maroof.

For Pakistan, while Bismah Maroof's replacement has been accepted by the technical committee, Iram, 25, is ready to take the stage as a leg-spin bowling all-rounder.

Iram has played seven ODIs in which she has scored 37 runs and taken three wickets. On the other hand, Pakistan captain Sana Mir who reached a double of 1000 runs and 100 wickets in ODIs in the last match, is another ray of hope for the team.

However, in their first encounter against South Africa at the World Cup, the Pakistan ladies lost by three wickets while defending a modest target of 206 runs.

The second face off against England was even more disappointing, resulting in a loss of 107 runs that shattered the confidence of the Pakistan players.

While Pakistan have already been found guilty of maintaining slow over rates, another such minor over rate offence could land captain Sana Mir in trouble with suspension for a single match.
