England Women tour of India | England Women vs India Women | EN-W vs IN-W Who Will Win
On a surface which was slowing down as the match was progressing, the Indian eves registered a scintillating 66 runs victory at the entertainment capital of India to take the early honours in the three-match ODI series.
Spinners Ekta Bisht and Deepti Sharma were the artists of this win as the duo claimed 6 of the 10 English wickets. Earlier in the day, it was the visiting skipper Heather Knight who won the toss and decided to field first on a wicket with some moistness on it. Jemimah Rodrigues and Smriti Mandhana started steadily with an opening stand of 69 runs in 15 overs.
Georgia Elwiss got the breakthrough for the visitors by removing the ever so reliable Smriti Mandhana. Once Mandhana got out, the run-rate dipped and the wickets kept falling at regular intervals. Skipper Mithali Raj showed some resilience on the wicket with 44 runs to her name but eventually, the Indian eves could only manage 202 on the board.
In reply, it was England all-rounder Natalie Sciver who took the responsibilty of the chase by scoring 44 runs and good some good aid in the form of her skipper Heather Knight who got 39 runs to her name but, they did not get any support from the others as the pitch started to deteriorate and the Indian spinners made the chase even tough for the visitors.
A win here in the second ODI for India women will put curtains on England hopes to level the series and make it one game apiece.
