Huge win for England, fourth successive T20I loss for India. At no stage did they look like chasing this total, or even making an attempt to get these runs. The middle order's frailties once again stood exposed against a superior England bowling line-up.

In the absence of Jhulan Goswami, who has retired from the shortest format, India's bowling looked toothless. Shikha clearly the best batsman and bowler on the day for the hosts. For England, a solid opening from Wyatt and Beaumont followed by Knight's beligerence at the end proving to be the massive difference.

Lots to think of for the captain-coach duo of Mandhana and Raman as we build into the next two T20Is. Join us shortly for the post-match presentation

Brunt to Pandey, FOUR runs

too much width and she crashes this to the point boundary, raced away like a tracer bullet. Used the depth of the crease very nicely.

Brunt to Pandey, FOUR runs

delightful square drive on the up, opened the bat face to hit this over backward point. Took a step towards the ball and then carved it away

Brunt to Pandey, no run

takes a step across and squeezes this full delivery to point

1w
Brunt to Pandey, 1 wide

too full but far too wide outside off, looks to reach out but misses.

19.1
Brunt to Pandey, no run

reaches out to squeeze this full delivery to point, lazy running, lazy calling. A better throw at the bowler's end would have felled the non-striker

looks to sweep but this was fired too far down leg, keeper does well to put her glove out and stop it like a goal keeper.
