    IND 159/6 in 20 overs

    Bell with the last over and she gives away just seven runs. 

    England wins by 38 runs and continues its dominance against India in the shortest format. India had started strongly with Renuka’s first-over double strike. But it was England all the way from there. Fifties from Sciver-Brunt and Wyatt, followed by a 3/15 from Ecclestone sealed a convincing win. 

  • December 06, 2023 22:08
    IND 152/6 in 19 overs

    Eccelstone with the penultimate over of the day. Ahuja tries to loft her over the leg side fence, but can only find Sciver-Brunt in the deep. 

    Kanika Ahuja c Nat Sciver-Brunt b Ecclestone 15 (12b 1x4 0x6)

    Ecclestone wraps up her spell soon. Incredible stuff from the left-arm spinner. 3/15 from her four. 

  • December 06, 2023 22:05
    IND 151/5 in 18 overs

    Last over of the day for Sciver-Brunt. Pooja Vastrakar and Kanika Ahuja are the batters out in the middle. Last ball of the over, Pooja manages to find a boundary. End of a brilliant all-round performance from Sciver-Brunt. 

  • December 06, 2023 21:59
    Shafali falls!

    Ecclestone with the 17th over and she strikes again. This time it is the big wicket of Shafali. Edge and Glenn takes an easy catch.

    IND 140/5 in 17 overs

  • December 06, 2023 21:57
    IND 133/4 in 16 overs

    Lauren Bell with her third third over. Solid start from her. Just two runs from the first four balls. But once again, England make a mistake off the last ball of the over. Wide four again. Still a decent over for the away side considering the circumstances. 

  • December 06, 2023 21:51
    Richa Ghosh’s innings end

    Sciver-Brunt with her third. Decent over from her as the Indian batters fail to hit a boundary. 

    Final over for Glenn. She has been hard to get away with today and now she is rewarded with her first wicket of the day. Mishit from Ghosh and it is gobbled up by Capsey at long on. 

    Richa Ghosh c Capsey b Glenn 21 (16b 1x4 1x6)

    IND 124/4 in 15 overs

  • December 06, 2023 21:43
    IND 110/3 in 13 overs

    IND 99/3 in 12 overs

    Ecclestone strikes!

    Big Wicket! Sophie Ecclestone returns and she pushes one through Harmanpreet Kaur’s defence with one that didn’t turn. 

    Harmanpreet Kaur b Ecclestone 26 (21b 3x4 1x6)

    IND 76/2 in 9 overs

    Spin from both ends now. Leggie Sarah Glenn with her first over of the day. She reels in another economical over. Just three from it.

    IND 41/1 in 5 overs

    Gaur pitches it up and Shafali picks the length early. Pumped over long off for a four. 

    NSB continues. Jemimah tries to take her on and almost finds the fielder at mid off in her attempt. Just dropped short. The pressure of run-rate is creeping. Shafali answers that with a late cut. FOUR!! She is not done. Two more boundaries from the over. The first one with a hit over mid on and the second with a slice behind point. 

  • December 06, 2023 20:59

    Shreyanka with the final over. Gives away just two runs from the first two balls. But she pitches it up for the third ball and Jones crashes it over long on for A SIX!!! Another full ball, this time it is chipped over the off side for a four. Shreyanka goes leg side next ball and Amy Jones whacks it to the leg side fence. But Shreyanka has the last laugh. Low full toss and Jones finds Jemimah at deep mid wicket. 


  • December 06, 2023 20:30
    ENG 181/5 in 19 overs

    Renuka Singh with the penultimate over of the innings. Starts with a dot ball. NSB puts one to long on to take a single next ball. Good fielding from Jemimah to prevent a boundary.

  • December 06, 2023 20:13
    First international wicket for Ishaque

    First international wicket for Ishaque! Wyatt’s fiery knock comes to an end. The English batter tries to step out, but can’t reach the ball. Easy stumping for Richa.

    It has been more than a month since Amol Muzumdar took over as the head coach of India’s women’s cricket team, and one of his first tasks has been to ensure that the team does not dwell over the past or bother too much about statistics.

    For Muzumdar - a doyen of First-Class cricket - it is all about playing fearlessly and focusing a lot on fitness and fielding.

    While he does not want to ‘compromise’ on those two crucial aspects, he has also advised the team to take each and every tournament seriously, leading up to next year’s T20I World Cup in Bangladesh.
