4.27pm Mithali Raj: "Next series we should do something before the third ODI, because we've been consistent in losing the third ODI in our series! Jhulan comes with a lot of experience and helps other bowlers. Shikha Pandey has evolved under her wings. After the partnership between Smriti and Punam there was a collapse, but later we had another partnership. I'll give credit to Brunt for her very good spell."

Heather Knight: "Today was all about fighting for us, it was all about showing character. Katherine was brilliant, outstanding. We (Wyatt and her) had a little bit of pressure coming in. We tried to have a clear game-plan. Danni was outstanding. One of our strengths is having people bat all the way down. It's a really handy thing to have. And our seam attack today was outstanding, led by Katherine of course."

No surprise that Katherine Brunt is the player of the match. "I think it's been a really tough tour up until now. India have played brilliantly, they've adapted to their conditions best. But we showed a lot of character, even while losing games, so we've got a lot to be proud of. Happy to get one win. There was a little bit of seam and nip early on. I worked on moving it. It seems to have paid off for me."

Smriti Mandhana is the Player of the Series. "It's been quite good, the last couple of months I've been timing the ball well. Whenever I go out to bat I feel I need to contribute to the team winning. The more the responsibility, the better. I think captaincy (in the T20Is) might help me not throw my wicket away."

That's all we have for you from this ODI series. This is Saurabh Somani, signing off on behalf of Shashank and Deemanth.

4.15pm It was nervy, but England's depth has finally prevailed. Lower order has held their own to squeeze past the target after it looked for large parts as if India would complete a series whitewash. Who knows what could've been had Shikha Pandey held on to a simple return catch with England needing 30 off 43? They would've been eight down with the last two having to face up to India's spinners. That said, India can be proud of the fight, England can reflect on their batting depth finally, after all much of the focus in the build-up to the series was about their batters.

Could India have fared better if they had Bisht's fizz over Gayadwad's flight? Lots of questions can be asked, of course, but they went in with a combination they believed would serve them well. India also strengthened their middle order, but the more they try to reinforce the batting, the more they collapse. An area coach WV Raman will want to work on as they build forward.
