full on off, and muscled over midwicket! India win by seven wickets
IND WMN won by 7 wickets (with 53 balls remaining)
3.32pm That's all from us at ESPNcricinfo. See you on the last day of February for the final ODI between the two sides. Till then, it's goodbye from all of us. Enjoy your monday!
3.25pm Time for the presentation.
Jhulan Goswami is the Player of the Match. She says, "My role was to give early breakthroughs and to stick to my plans, and I was happy to bowl in the right areas. Wanted to consistently do that, and hope the batsmen make an error too. When you're bowling in a Powerplay, then you need to have a second plan. Can't just use one stock ball, so was just trying to enjoy the bowling. As long as you're playing, nerves will always be there. It will always help you to do better."
Mithali Raj, the winning captain: "Wanted some of the young girls to get exposure, and even the spinners are enjoying here because outside India it's not easy for them. Playing at home, at 9am, the first half is very important even if you choose to bat. Later on, the wicket eases out, because the pitches here are well rolled. Form comes and goes for players, so important for players to do really well when they are in form. I was a bit disappointed with the 10th wicket partnership England got, but I guess, 150-odd, I knew we were always there."
Heather Knight, the losing captain: "We've lost too many wickets early in both games, and you can't win games when that happens. It was a used wicket so we thought of batting first because it is difficult to score on a used surface. It comes down to the 160, we didn't deserve to win from there. Props to Nat Sciver though, her innings doesn't deserve to be on the losing side. Laura Marsh got injured in game 1, so we've missed her spin bowling. But I don't think it's our bowlers fault to lose the game. We need to start better with the bat, we train brilliantly, so we just need to put up scores we are capable of."
Madhusudan Nawa: "Smriti is 22yrs 222 days old today"
3.16pm And what a convincing win this was for India. Their bowlers set the game up, and after that their batsmen displayed real confidence on a surface where the teams were playing for the second game in a row. The win means two championship points for India, who remain second on the points table. We'll be back soon with the presentation.
Jekin: "How does the format of ICC Women's championship work ?" -- top 4 teams get direct entry into the following World Cup. The rest take part in a qualifier
PRAVEEN KUMAR: "Absolutely Clinical Performance by India to Beat world Champions England.."
Mohd Irshad: "She 36 and at that age i have seen men struggling and saying bye to the game but she is not only playing for the country but winning it for us, Proud of you M Raj watching you from years and would love to continue doing so :)"
