A 92-run opening stand between England batsmen Charlotte Edwards and Kathryn Leng proved the difference in the One-Day International played against India as compensation for their washed out Test match at Beaconsfield yesterday.
India won the toss and batted first but struggled all the way losing Jaya Sharma when the score was seven as Isa Guha set about another fine example of her promise by claiming Sharma as the first of her three wickets at a cost of 28 runs.
Later she added Anjum Chopra for five and Sulakshana Naik for six.
Clare Connor's slow bowling also cut a swathe through the Indian batting as she took three for 25 from 9.5 overs.
India were dismissed for 118 with one ball of their innings remaining.
Edwards scored 54 off 89 balls with only two boundaries while Leng scored 46 off 84.
Edwards was second out when England were only 11 runs short of their target and while Claire Taylor and Melissa Reynard were also dismissed before the win was achieved, England got home comfortably to claim a six-wicket win.
