Hello and welcome to Sportstar’s Highlights of the IND-W vs ENG-W 3rd ODI at Lord’s.
India seals a famous win and ensures a clean sweep to gift the perfect farewell gift for Jhulan Goswami.
Dean steps down to Hemalatha and manages to get it over a leaping mid-off for a FOUR!!! A huge boundary in the context of this game. England requires under 20 runs now. Deepti Sharma is back on. She attempts a run out at the non striker end on Dean and it goes up for a review. And the third umpire gives it out. What an end to the game. Deepti shows her presence of mind and spots Dean walking out. And it is a win for India and that seals a cleansweep.
This is getting too close for comfort for India. With Dean well settled and Davies offering good support, England can surely be hoping for a remarkable come from behind win. England sees out another over from Gayakwad.
Deepti Sharma delivers a tight over but offers no risk to the batters. Gayakwad is brought back in but she can’t get past the steadfast English duo.
Jhulan drops a sharp chance at first slip. Deepti Sharma is driven by Dean through the covers for a four. Davies too gets into the action and executes a smooth cover drive for four. Renuka with her final over as India looks to finish things off. But Davies and Dean survive and Renuka ends with terrific figures of 4/28 in her 10.
Jhulan continues for her last over and she sticks it straight through Kate Cross’s wild swing and BOWLED!!! India is one wicket away. Jhulan has the chance for a grandstand finish with England’s last batter, Freya Davies, on strike. Davies defends resolutely as Jhulan bowls out on an incredible career. Players and fans applaud the legend.
Jhulan’s turn to beat Dean. She gets a maiden over and that brings Cross on strike against Deepti Sharma. Cross quickly hands over the strike to Dean. A few singles from Deepti’s over as England inches a little closer to India’s target.
Jhulan is back on as India looks to seal the deal. But Dean deals with Jhulan, with ease. Gayakwad continues on from the other end and beats Dean’s edge. But both batters survive.
Deepti Sharma with her off spin gets one more tight over in until Jones tried to loft her over mid off. The timing wasn’t perfect there, but she gets a couple of runs there. Harmanpreet persists with Renuka and she is rewarded with the wicket of Amy Jones. Huge breakthrough. Renuka offers Jones a loosener and and she tries to whack it to midwicket fence, only for Harleen Deol to leap forward to complete a brilliant catch. India inching closer to the win.
Amy Jones c Deol b Renuka Singh 28 (50b)
Deepti Sharma beats Dean’s outside edge and Yastika gets the bails off in a flash. But replays shows that Dean had made it back in time. Close shave for the England player there. Renuka Singh is back as India looks to stop this partnership from growing any further.
Dean and Jones have stabilised England’s chase. But the target is still pretty far away as the Indian spinners rush through some tight and tidy overs. Pooja Vastrakar gets an over and Dean crashes a square drive for a four.
Hemalatha continues. She is getting considerable amount of spin from the pitch. Gayakwad rifles in her left arm spin from the other end. Dean and Jones have been resolute at the face of some sharp spin bowling from the Indian side.
Hemalatha is introduced. Charlie Dean creams one down the leg side for a welcome boundary. Jones cuts one fine and it dribble to the boundary. Jones is putting up a fight against the Indian bowling.
Amy Jones gets on top of a pull shot against Jhulan and it races away to the fence. Welcome boundary for England. Deepti Sharma comes into the attack and her golden day continues. She loops one up and Kemp tries to swipe at it, only for Harleen Deol to collect an easy catch at point. Seven down for England. India is in touching distance of a famous win and a clean sweep.
Freya Kemp c Deol b Sharma 5 (10b)
Rajeshwari Gayakwad is introduced and she strikes immediately. Pitches one on middle and leg and draws Wyatt out and she is beaten all ends up as the ball castles the stumps. Magical from the left-arm spinner. India’s clean sweep attempt is gathering wind. Gayakwad is back for one more over and she strikes again. Jhulan Goswami is in the thick of the things as she gobbles up a low catch at slip. Gayakwad’s control and accuracy coming to the fore here.
Danni Wyatt b Gayakwad 8 (4b)
Sophie Ecclestone c Goswami b Gayakwad 0 (3b)
India persists with attack. Jhulan has the keeper up on the stumps and two slips in place. Capsey plays at a delivery outside off stump and misses. Jhulan misses the length and Capsey is able to pull the ball past Deepti Sharma at mid on for four runs. Jhulan gets Capsey! The ball is pitched short which gives Capsey room to cut the ball, but she finds the fielder stationed at cover. England 39-3 in 11 overs. Renuka Singh strays on Dunkley’s pads and is dispatched to the deep square leg fence for a boundary. England is four down! A Jaffa from Renuka. The ball jags back in, passes through Dunkley’s bat and pad and crashes into the stumps.
Alice Capsey c Deol b Jhulan 5 (8b)
Sophia Dunkley b Renuka Singh 7(12b)
Beaumont cuts Jhulan off the backfoot and it skims to the fence for a four. Jhulan responds with one that pitches on a good length and takes off. But Beaumont is watchful and lets it go. Renuka strikes Beaumont on the front pad and India seems keen for an LBW and reviews it. The impact was outside off and the review goes to waste. But Renuka ensures the umpire isn’t needed next ball as she goes through Beaumont’s defense. BOWLED! India sensing a chance here.
Tammy Beaumont b Renuka Singh 8 (21b)
Lamb tries to scoop Jhulan, but only manages to injure her hand in process. She responds with a smashing shot straight over Jhulan for a four! Renuka gets the first break through. And she has Yastika to thank for it. Lamb steps out and the keeper is lightning quick to whip off the bails. FIRST WICKET FOR INDIA.
Emma Lamb st †Bhatia b Renuka Singh 21 (29b)
Jhulan and Renuka continues. Beaumont and Lamb have settled in well and deal with the Indian pacers well. Renuka strikes Lamb on her pads, but she had advanced far enough for that to get a credible appeal.
Lamb pulls one in front of square and England’s chase gets its first impetus. FOUR!!! Renuka goes for a short one and Lamb pulls it for another FOUR!! Lamb then drives one past covers. Another FOUR!! She has provided England with the perfect start.
Jhulan starts with a steady line outside off and tests Beaumont consistently. Good start from the Indian legend. Renuka Thakur piles on the pressure from the other end and it is a strong start from India.
Jhulan Goswami to open the bowling in her last international game. Tammy Beaumont and Emma Lamb kicks off England’s chase.
India has been restricted to 169 after a collective effort from the English bowling unit. Smriti Mandhana and Deepti Sharma were the lone stars for the Indian innings as Kate Cross starred for England with four wickets.
Ecclestone gets Gayakwad LBW and that is it for the Indian innings.
Deepti Sharma targets Ecclestone and almost gets a boundary first ball. They had to scramble to get the double. Gayakwad has two balls to survive and she does so.
Kate Cross is back in for her last over and she is on the look out for her fifer. But Gayakwad survives and Cross ends her spell at 4/26. Potentially a game-winning spell from Cross.
Renuka Thakur goes for a big shot straight away and skies it and Dunkley grabs on to the chance. Kemp gets her second. England tries to go after Rajeshwari Gayakwad, the last batter, but she survives.
Renuka Singh c Dunkley b Kemp 0 (3b)
Pooja pulls a Dean short ball for four. Dean follows it by pitching it up and an attempted sweep fails. Pooja Vastrakar is out LBW. In walks Jhulan Goswami and England players are giving a guard of honour. What a brilliant gesture from the English side. And what an anti-climax. Jhulan Goswami is bowled by Kemp for a golden duck
Jhulan Goswami b Kemp 0 (1b)
Pooja Vastrakar lbw b Dean 22 (38b)
Deepti Sharma guides one to third man and gets to her fifty. A well-deserved one from the Indian allrounder. Pooja continues on the front foot and slams one straight for a four.
Deepti goes for another sweep against Dean and gets it past short fine leg for a four. Pooja Vastrakar finally breaks the shackles and slams one past mid-on for her first FOUR! She then goes after Davies and thumps it straight back over for another FOUR!! Positive moves from Pooja.
Ecclestone gets another maiden over through. Pooja Vastrakar is taking her time to settle in. Deepti paddle sweeps Ecclestone to break the flow of dot balls and gets a four!
Ecclestone tosses one up and Hemalatha tries to thread the leg side gap. But Charlie Dean dives to her left to complete a smart catch. Another wicket falls for India. Pooja Vastrakar is the new batter and Ecclestone beats her straight away. England reviews for an LBW. But it is shown to be drifting down the leg side.
Dayalan Hemalatha c Dean b Ecclestone 2 (17b)
Kate Cross continues as England looks to go for the kill. Cross misses her line and Jones can’t gather it and it flies away for a wide four. Freebies for India. Hemalatha, the new batter and Deepti see out the rest of the Cross over. Deepti Sharma goes after Ecclestone and nails a lofted shot over mid wicket for a four.
Kate Cross is brought back in, but Deepti and Mandhana deal with her comfortably. Mandhana, meanwhile, gets to her 25th ODI half-century and takes in the applause from an adoring crowd. But her joy is soon cut short as she somehow manages to drag a short delivery from Cross to her stumps. Mandhana looks bewildered and Cross is leaping with joy as she gets her fourth. Huge blow for India.
Smriti Mandhana b Cross 50 (79b)
Emma Lamb is the next spinner to get a ball. Mandhana and Deepti has a confusion and almost results in a mix up. Mandhana is safely back in. Deepti brings up the 50 partnership with a sweep shot. These two have stabilised the Indian innings after Cross and Jones rocked the ship ealry.
Deepti Sharma has had enough of the defending and slogs Ecclestone over mid wicket for her first four. Dean continues from the other end and Deepti late cuts her for another FOUR!! Shift in tempo from India.
Sophie Ecclestone is introduced into the attack. She pushes a quiet over past the Indian left-handers. England is in control of the game, but India’s hopes will be alive until Mandhana continues.
Mandhana slashes one outside off from Kemp and it flies past point. third man dives in and keeps it down to two. Kemp offered a loosener and Mandhana goes to her backfoot and thumps it to midwicket. FOUR!! Mandhana has held India’s innings together so far.
Freya Kemp is the first change for England. Mandhana drives one a little uppishly and it races away for a four. Chalie ,Dean replaces Cross with her off spin. Deepti paddles her for a double.
Davies with her fifth over. She hits Harleen Deol on her pads and the umpire brushes the appeal aside. England goes up for a review and the replay shows the ball had hit the pad first and it is all three red. Harleen Deol is gone. Davies gets her first of the day. Cross too gets her fifth and Mandhana and Deepti Sharma sees her out.
Davies continues. She keeps Mandhana down and delivers a maiden over. Cross delivers another unplayable ball and beats Harmanpreet before rapping her on her pads. Umpire gives out and India reviews. The ball is shown to be clipping the leg stump and the decision stands. Harmanpreet Kaur is dismissed for the first time in this series. Cross’s dream spell continues. Cross misses her line and Mandhana nudges it to fine leg boundary for a four.
Harmanpreet Kaur lbw b Cross 4 (9b)
Davies draws an edge from Harmanpreet, but it is just wide of second slip. Harmanpreet gets a drive past the infield, but its not timed well enough and gets a double. Cross lands one on middle and leg and it swings it away from Mandhana. The ball almost skims both the outside edge and the off stump before nestling in Jones’ gloves. Some bowling from Cross. She then draws a false shot from Harmanpreet and almost gets a caught and bowled. But the ball slips out of her grasp on the follow up.
Mandhana nails a cover drive and it goes racing away for a four. First boundary of the game. She hits the same spot again, but this time from the backfoot. As elegant as the first one. FOUR! She defends everything else to see through Davies’ over. Cross gets one more!! This time it is Yastika. She swings it back inside for the left-hander and Yastika had no answers. Second wicket for Cross and England. The skipper is out in the middle, much earlier than she would have expected to.
Yastika Bhatia b Cross 0 (2b)
Smriti Mandhana begins well with a few drives, but no boundaries yet. Davies beats her once in the first over. Just two runs from the first. Kate Cross with the second over. Shafali Verma blocks few, but the fifth ball from Cross swings in just enough to beat her bat and she is bowled. Shafali’s poor form continues. Yastika Bhatia is the next batter.
Shafali Verma b Cross 0 (5b)
Freya Davies to open the bowling for England. Smriti Mandhana and Shafali Verma to open the innings for India.
