    England were by far the better side among the two teams. They were brilliant with the bat after losing two wickets early. Danni Wyatt and Nat Sciver-Brunt with their fifties took their score to 197. Indian Bowlers could have been better. There were lots of loose balls where England batters could find easy boundaries.

    India to chase the score needed their top-order batters to fire. However, Smriti Mandhana and Jemimah Rodrigues failed to give India the start that they were looking for. Shafali Verma (52) and Harmanpreet Kaur (26) tried their waist to keep things intact for India but at the end, it wasn't good enough. Sophie Ecclestone (15/3) was superb with his left-arm spin as he was the pic of the bowler from England.
