Playing a day game won't be different: Mithali Raj

India's day game against England follows the day-nighter that the team won easily against the West Indies in their opening Group A match on January 31. The host nation will play against Sri Lanka in a day-night match on February 5 at the same Brabourne Stadium.

Mumbai: India skipper Mithali Raj is unperturbed about her team playing its first day game in the ICC Women's World Cup against holders England here on Sunday, as she felt it won't make much difference barring some assistance that the bowlers would get in the morning.

"I don't think there is a lot to get adjusted to, because it is not real winter, like what we get to see up north where the dew factor or moisture is heavily in the air. Because the matches start at 9 am, there will be a bit of assistance to bowlers, which I saw in yesterday's game.

"Other than that, I think the wicket is behaving beautifully in both the innings," Mithali said at the pre-match press conference today at the Cricket Club of India.
