lofted over cover for six! What a way to win it! Full outside off, but in the slot, she lofted this powerfully through the line up and over cover and it carries all the way. Sensational shot to finish it
India win by five wickets with three balls to spare. Brilliant from Harmanpreet Kaur. Kept her cool and closed it out. England will rue the dropped catch and wides in the penultimate over.
Heather Knight is the player of the match for her 67 off 44 and 1 for 20 off three. Knight: "I rode my luck a bit. The wicket did dry out and get better. There's loads of things we can improve and get better for tomorrow."
Harmanpreet Kaur: "We were really happy with the support and happy we could do that. I'm really happy that our young players could play with freedom. We have to work hard on our fielding. We need to improve."
Praveen: "Harman doing it in true Dhoni fashion. Keeping cool, taking it deep till the last over, and finishing off with a six!"
Sandip Poudel: "Catches do win matches !! That dropped catch in 19th over literally turn around match's perspective. "
That concludes our coverage from Canberra. Join us again tomorrow as England takes on Australia.
112kph, back of a length, she mistimes a pull to deep midwicket
Tom de Sailor: "How about another super over? "
short ball, she walks at her and pull off the top edge, it hangs in the air for an age but falls short fo fine leg
Katherine Brunt to deliver the last. 6 off 6 needed.
an outside edge is sliced over backward point and it runs away for two. It was full and angled across, she swings hard and the edge lands safely behind point
fired down leg and a wide! Jones can't take it cleanly and they get an extra run and an extra ball! A huge error from Sciver
slower ball on off, she lofts this high inside out over cover and it just clears the fielder running back! They get back for two this time
Kabir : "@ Reju- don't have a decent WK batswoman, batting is top-heavy & bowling resources are weak- no doubt - these girls are below Aussies, English & maybe Kiwis- though they have brilliant individual talents-which does give them outside chance/ dark horse but not the favourites to lift the title- maybe 2-4 years down they would be the force like men counterparts."
slower ball, 84kph, wide of off, she mistimes a cut to backward point
fuller outside off, she drives to mid off
guided past short third man! Great skill. Back of a length outside off, she backed away, opened the face and guides it in the air past short third man. It wasn't far away but it was flying.
dropped at long on by Villiers! Length ball, swatted across the line down to long on, Villiers runs in from the rope and spills the waist high chance! Just made a mess of it.
17 needed off 12. Sciver on.
Bimal: "Poor running between wickets by India! Many potential 2s restricted to singles." It is very hot but you're right Bimal. They have missed some opportunities.
tossed up, she skips down and lofts with the turn to the gap at midwicket, they want two but decide against it
runs fine off the glove! Shorter length, 88kph, she tried to pull, it came off the glove and went over Jones and runs away fine
REJU JOHN: "Surprised Bhatia has played so many T20's with an average under 10. Does this mean India does not have a good WK batsmen?"
81kph, angled into leg, she sweeps and it comes off the glove and runs fine for a couple
fuller outside off, she mistimes a sweep to midwicket
tossed up on middle, she reaches out and paddles fine but only gets one
Kabir : "@ Rob Harvey- agree with you- criminal leaking 87 runs in last 10 overs. @Kapil Baldawa- Deepti is possibly being groomed as a finisher after her exploits in Kia league"
82kph, pushed through outside off, she sweeps forward of square
caught at point! Short ball that climbs outside off, she gives room to uppercut but is too far away from it, just pops this cut shot straight up to point and Knight cruises across from cover to take the catch easily
slower ball on middle, she drags this to midwicket
110kph, short ball, she pulls off the top edge behind square for two
slower ball, 81kph, drops on Bhatia and she drives to mid off
