India finished the first day of the INDW vs ENGW one-off test on 410/7 in 94 overs with four batters scoring half-centuries. India captain Harmanpreet Kaur also could have scored a half-century but a bizarre run out cut short her inning by just 1 run. Her bat got stuck in the ground while completing a run and Dani Wyatt's throw was enough to dismiss Harmanpreet. This is the second time that her bat has gotten stuck in the ground while completing a run.

Harmanpreet walked off scoring 81-ball 49 with six fours, but more importantly, she and Yastika Bhatia (66) put on 116 runs for the fifth wicket, which is the second-highest stand for India in the format.

Debutants Shubha (69) and Jemimah Rodrigues (68) played magnificent innings as India reached a massive 410 for 7 at stumps on Day 1. The 24-year-old Shubha's inning consists of 13 boundaries.

Shubha became the 12th India batter to score a fifty on debut, but she could not convert it into a century, which would have made her the first from the country to make a ton in her maiden appearance. Sophie Ecclestone dismissed her to stop India's flow for some time. Jemimah also played a beautiful inning but Lauren Bell got the wicket of her at the end.

But the talking point of the game came when Harmanpreet walked off scoring 49 runs bizarrely. In what appears to have not learned from her previous mistake, Indian women's cricket team skipper Harmanpreet Kaur again suffered a run out in the same manner she was against Australia.
