Wyatt starred with the bat for England.

Wyatt struck a brilliant hundred (124 off 63) to propel England to its second consecutive win of the series. She was ably supported by Tammy Beaumont. India, on the other hand, has been knocked out of the Tri-Nation series. It was left to rue some pretty ordinary bowling; its woes further compounded by occassional let-ups in the field.

India squares off against Australia on Monday; the contest in light of Sunday's result will be a dead rubber as far the host is concerned.

15 Overs: England 160/2

This is England's game to lose now. Beaumont and Wyatt batted India out of this contest before Beaumont was out  caught by Mandhana. Meanwhile, Wyatt brought up her second T20I hundred - the second fastest in T20 history - with a boundary towards long-on. The wheels have come off India's challenge or will there be a twist in the tale?

10 Overs: England 107/1

This is turning out to be a great knock from Wyatt, who has raced to 82 off 40 deliveries. The two back-to-back sixes off Poonam Yadav capping off what has been an extremely productive first 10 overs for the visitor. Needless to say, England in the driver's seat at the moment.

Goswami draws first blood! Smith departs for 15. England 59/1.

5 Overs: England 59/0

This is a great start for England; Wyatt taking Julan Goswami to the cleaners in the first over. She then turned her attention to Anuja Patil, hammering her for a boundary and a six. India needs wickets! England is going at just under than 12 runs an over - Wyatt doing buk of the damage at the moment.

Bryony Smith and Danielle Wyatt to begin the chase; Jhulan Goswami with the new ball.


Mandhana came to the fore once again - scoring the third fastest fifty in women's T20 (25 balls) - with Mithali acting as a willing foil alongside her. India has cruised to 198 - second highest total in women's T20 history - thanks to useful cameos by Harmanpreet Kaur and Pooja Vastrakar. England needs 199 to make it two wins in a row.

We'll be back with the chase soon.

Farrant puts an end to Harmanpreet's cameo; the Indian skipper departs for 30. India 179/4.

Veda Krishnamurthy has to depart pretty early; Ecclestone getting rid of the right-hander. India 153/3.

15 Overs: India 142/2

Mandhana executed a flurry of handsome looking shots before slicing one straight to Beaumont at point. That has brought captain Harmanpreet Kaur to the crease. Meanwhile, Mithali notched up her fifty before holing out to long-on. Can India get to 180? Veda Krishnamurthy the new batter in the middle.

And Mithali departs trying to up the ante, Farrant doing the damage. India 141/2.

GONE! A wicket against the run of play as Mandhana departs for a quickfire 76 off 40; Sciver getting her revenge. India 129/1.

10 Overs: India 96/0

Mandhana is starting to flex her muscles now with Mithali playing an able second fiddle. Sciver and Ecclestone have been at the receiving end of Mandhana's aggressive batting, with the southpaw collecting 12 and 14 runs off their overs respectively. She brought up her half-century with a boundary over extra-cover. England, after a controlled start, has started to bleed runs; India going at just under than 10 runs an over. 

5 Overs: India 39/0

A steady start by the two Indian openers. While Mandhana shaked off the nerves with three big hits off Katie George - two boundaries and a six- Mithali broke the shackles with two boundaries off Farant. Sophie Ecclestone, left-arm orthodox, has been introduced in the powerplay. All three bowlers for England have been left-armers.

Smriti Mandhana and Mithali Raj to kickstart proceedings with the bat; Tash Farrant with the new ball.

Having lost to Australia by six wickets in the tournament opener, the host will be hoping for a turnaround in fortunes when it takes the field against an in-form English unit. The visitor, led by Tammy Beaumont, beat Australia by eight wickets on Friday and would be hoping to replicate its all-round performance against the Harmanpreet Kaur - led side.

Suffice to say, we're in for a cracker of a contest! Here's our preview for today's match: Indian women hope for change in fortune against England
