tucks this to short fine and they scamper a run
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

steps out and tucks this to square leg
gets a thick inside edge to short fine, Shikha nearly completes two runs, while Deepti didn't move an inch. Throw from the keeper too wide at the bowler's end.
wallops this short ball to deep midwicket, there's a misfield and they will get the extra run
gets some bat on this attempted tickle, rolls to short fine
changes the bat grip and plays this paddle over short third man, got it very fine. Was initially looking to scoop over short fine
length ball outside off, leaves as she had made too much room
sees the batsman trying to make room and slips this full delivery towards her toes, Shikha now tries and gets away by moving to the off side, just avoids it
