Welcome to Sportstar's Highlights of the 2022 ODI Women's World Cup [CWC 2022]. This is Lavanya Lakshmi Narayanan and Dhruva Prasad bringing you the latest from the WC game between England and India in Mount Maunganui on Wednesday.

REPORT: Women's World Cup: India loses to England by 4 wickets, inconsistency proves costly

ENGLAND BEAT INDIA BY FOUR WICKETS AND 112 BALLS TO SPARE

PLAYER OF THE MATCH: CHARLIE DEAN (4/23)

Charlie Dean: I don't have words to say. We're very happy to have come back from three disappointing games and win today. I'm very happy. I just tried to keep it simple. Try and build some pressure and that worked well. When you're bowling with Sophie Ecclestone, it makes things easier. She's an exceptional player and has shown a lot of trust in me.

Mithali Raj: We definitely didn't have partnerships and it didn't go our way despite getting what we wanted after losing the toss. When you lose you always think you are short on runs. Getting 200 could have had the match go either way. Every game we've done well as a fielding unit. It is a department where we have improved. We need to work very hard with our batting. It is an honour to play alongside Jhulan Goswami. It is difficult for any fast bowler to play at this level consistently.

Heather Knight: A bit of relief to be honest. A bit scrappy in the end but getting over the line was important. We were disappointed with the way our fielding was going. The mentality of the girls was great. They went out there and were aggressive. It wasn't an easy wicket. A few more on the board would have been tricky. I just wanted to be the one out there to finish. I want to congratulate Jhulan (Goswami) on her 250 wickets. Amazing achievement. Nat Sciver scored quickly on what wasn't an easy wicket. Very chuffed for her and the cricket gods ooking after us.

ENGLAND INNINGS - 136/6 (31.2 OVERS)

ENG 136/6 in 31.2 overs: Meghna continues. A big wide down leg side with Ecclestone on strike. Three runs to win for England. FOUR! England wins. Decked in short and Ecclestone swats it over mid wicket and to the fence. England wins by four wickets with 112 balls to spare.

ENG 131/6 in 31 overs: Jhulan back with the ball. Just a couple of singles as the batters don't seem to be in a hurry to finish at all. A brief pause in play as Kaur seems to have jammed her knee into the ground and looks in a bit of distress. The physio is on the field and she is walking off with England needing four runs to win.

ENG 129/6 in 30 overs: OUT! Dunkley pokes outside off and her indiscretion in the channel area hands Meghna another wicket. Good take by Richa behind the stumps. Sophia Dunkley c Richa Ghosh b Meghna Singh 17(21b 4x4 0x6).Katherine Brunt is in with England needing seven runs to win. OUT! Short and Brunt top edges it trying to pull and an easy one for Richa with the gloves. Katherine Brunt c Richa Ghosh b Meghna Singh 0(2b 0x4 0x6). Sophie Ecclestone in to bat.

ENG 127/4 in 29 overs: FOUR! Dunkley comes down the wicket and drives along the ground through mid off and four more. She flicks to short fine leg for one and keeps strike. Five runs off the Sneh Rana over.

ENG 122/4 in 28 overs: FOUR! Driven away by Knight through covers off Meghna and she moves to 49 with that. Rocks back and slices this it third for one and that is a fifty for Heather Knight off 66 balls. Good slower bouncer next up to Dunkley. FOUR! What a shot! Width and room outside off and Dunkley upper cuts this with class over backward point with both feet off the ground. FOUR! Gets lucky this time as a thick outside edge runs away to the boundary behind.

ENG 109/4 in 27 overs: FOUR! Dunkley shimmies and just gets enough elevation to clear the mid on fielder. Definitely didn't get the middle of the bat on it but enough of it nevertheless.

ENG 104/4 in 26 overs: Meghna Singh also returns with the ball. Dunkley plays out a maiden over and is happy to defend despite Meghna pitching it up full and around the pads.

ENG 104/4 in 25 overs: Gayakwad back into the attack. SIX! Jones steps out and picks it up from the pitch of the ball to loft it over deep extra cover. OUT! Jones steps out a couple of balls later again and looks to clear mid on. Kaur leaps up and completes a spectacular catch. Sophia Dunkley is the new batter in. A brace for Knight to end the over. Amy Jones c Harmanpreet Kaur b Rajeshwari Gayakwad 10(28b 0x4 1x6).

ENG 95/3 in 24 overs: Knight turns this away down square leg for one. One more for Jones who comes down the wicket and flicks through mid wicket. FOUR! Knight is onto the sweep like lightning and finds the boundary at fine leg. She keeps strike with a single.

ENG 88/3 in 23 overs: Jhulan will continue. A big breakthrough is needed here as Knight is running away with this game. Six dots and maiden over. Jones has no qualms biding her time and playing second fiddle to her captain at the other end. She in on three runs off 23 balls.

ENG 88/3 in 22 overs: Deepti Sharma to bowl. FOUR! Knight reverse-sweeps this past a diving backward point and to the boundary. Jones also attempts the reverse-sweep but completely misses it. Single to Jones to end the over.

ENG 82/3 in 21 overs: Jhulan returns with the ball. Just a couple of singles from the over. Knight moves to 30 runs off 53 balls and has recovered to some extent after what seemed a jittery start.

ENG 80/3 in 20 overs: Knight paddle sweeps Gayakwad for one to fine leg. Loud LBW appeal as Jones misses the sweep after the ball turns in from outside off. She drives through covers off the backfoot next ball for one. A thickish outside edge runs away for a couple to the fielder at third. FOUR! That will be a boundary as Deepti was in contact with the rope as she parried the ball in.

ENG 74/3 in 19 overs: FOUR! Full and wide from Vastrakar and Knight punches it off the backfoot through cover and point. She corrects her line and length. A gentle dab to third for one on a length ball. Another shorter one cramps Jones in her crease.

ENG 69/3 in 18 overs: Maiden for Gayakwad as Amy Jones - the new batter - defends with a straight bat and a forward press.

ENG 69/3 in 17 overs: FOUR! Too full outside off and Sciver throws her arms at it and pierces the off side field for a boundary. FOUR! Length on off and an audacious chip over mid off by Sciver for four runs. OUT! Leading edge and an easy take for Jhulan at mid off. Sciver was looking to turn this length ball to the leg and turned the face of the bat too early. Nat Sciver c Jhulan Goswami b Pooja Vastrakar 45(46b 8x4 0x6).

ENG 60/2 in 16 overs: One more over for Gayakwad. Four dot balls to start with. This full and straight one is guided behind point by Knight for one. Dot to end and just one from it.

ENG 59/2 in 15 overs: Sciver goes back in her crease and tucks it behind for one to bring up the fifty in 14.3 overs. FOUR! Flighted outside off and Sciver presses forward and sweeps through midwicket region and beats three fielders in pursuit of the ball in the deep. FOUR! Full and wide outside off, Sciver drills it behind point for four more.

ENG 48/2 in 14 overs: FOUR! Sciver hops back and jabs through mid wicket for a boundary after Vastrakar drags her length back a bit. Five runs come from it and the partnership is growing ominous for India.

ENG 43/2 in 13 overs: Sneh Rana into the attack. Sciver sweeps through mid wicket for one. Knight returns strike with a paddle sweep to fine leg. Just two from the over. The outside the off stump line gives little away.

ENG 41/2 in 12 overs: WIDE! Vastrakar darts in a full-toss that clips the tramline outside off. Length outside off and Sciver cuts off the backfoot for one. Driven by Knight but finds the fielder behind point. She is now batting on nine runs off 29 balls.

ENG 39/2 in 11 overs: Gayakwad continues. Sciver paddles sweeps first ball for a couple. This was drifting down leg again and easy pickings for Sciver, who has looked in good touch today, so far. A couple more for her with a deft dab to third off the backfoot. Single to end the over.

ENG 34/2 in 10 overs: Vastrakar from the other end. Sciver guides to third with open face for one. Knight is unable to find the gaps on the off despite timing the ball well. Just one off the first four balls. Richa Ghosh comes up to the wickets.

ENG 33/2 in 9 overs: Rajeshwari Gayakwad into the attack. Tossed up on middle and Sciver drives it straight back. FOUR! Sciver sweeps this flighted one to the fine leg fence. Pulls her length back a bit and keeps it on off. FOUR! Drifting down leg and tossed up and Sciver gets on one knee and sweeps again this time to the backward square leg boundary.

ENG 24/2 in 8 overs: Meghna will continue. Full on off and Sciver drives it back for a dot. The keeper comes up to the stumps for the second ball. Just three singles from the over.

ENG 21/2 in 7 overs: Beaten! Big swing for Jhulan outside off and Knight gets her front foot forward to drive and is beaten for the away movement in the air and off the pitch. FOUR! Short and Knight pulls in front of square and to the fence.

ENG 16/2 in 6 overs: Maiden over for Meghna. She is persistent with an off-stump line and pitches it full. Dot balls, however, won't bother England, given the target but certainly this will add pressure.

ENG 16/2 in 5 overs: FOUR! Sciver finds the gap between cover and mid off to fetch a boundary off her first ball. What an escape! The ball crashes into the stumps off Sciver's inside edge but the bails don't budge! FOUR! Adding insult to injury. Shorter and pulled away by Sciver through mid wicket. 

ENG 8/2 in 4 overs: Meghna continues. Nat Sciver has joined her captain Knight in the middle. FOUR! Too full and Knight unleashes a drive through the off to get off the mark. Four runs from the over.

ENG 4/2 in 3 overs: Goswami starts off with a WIDE down leg. Fullish on off and it rolls back to the bowler off Beaumont's inside half of the bat. LBW appeal last ball and turned down. Goswami looks keen and Mithali reviews. It looked straight but there might have been bat on that. No bat involved as Beaumont took a big stride forward. Three reds and OUT! What a review. The in-form Beaumont has to go. Tammy Beaumont lbw b Jhulan Goswami 1(10b 0x4 0x6).

ENG 3/1 in 2 overs: OUT! Meghna Singh strikes first ball and a good catch at first slip by Sneh Rana. Wyatt has to go. The away movement in the air on a good length outside off had Wyatt poking in the channel and edging to slip. Danni Wyatt c Sneh Rana b Meghna Singh 1(3b 0x4 0x6). Captain Heather Knight also edges it behind but doesn't carry to first slip. Maiden wicket for Meghna.

ENG 3/0 in 1 over: Pitched up on middle by Goswami first ball and Beaumont defends it back. WIDE! This slides down leg side and first run for England on the board. Full on off this time and defended again. Full on the pads and Beaumont flicks to fine leg for one. Wyatt taps to point and scampers for one more.

9:28 AM IST: Back for the run-chase. A tall order for the Indians here, who will have to defend a modest total on a belter of a wicket. Jhulan Goswami with the new ball.

ENGLAND TARGET 135 IN 50 OVERS

All eyes will be on this pace talisman - Jhulan Goswami who is featuring in her 199th ODI.

INNINGS SUMMARY: India channelled the West Indies game here - just the Windies bit. As we've seen, India performs in alternates, one big game is followed by something like what we saw today. India will be kicking itself for being easily 100 runs short against this English lineup. England, with its back against the wall, was clinical with the ball and on the field. The pitch is fresh and so England will hope to make short work of this.
Seven wickets for 73 runs. What an implosion for India here.

INDIA INNINGS - 134 ALL OUT (36.2 OVERS)

IND 134/10 in 36.2 overs: Who else but Charlie Dean to wrap up the Indian innings? Career best figures for Dean as she takes out Meghna Singh for her fourth wicket. India folds for 134. Meghna Singh b Dean 3 (12b).

IND 133/9 in 36 overs: Ecclestone is back. One wicket to go to fold up the Indian innings and Ecclestone does not have a slip. Odd decision here from Knight. A wide and a few runs given away.

IND 130/9 in 35 overs: Knight comes in and gives away just a run. Can England wrap up the innings before India gets to 150?

IND 129/9 in 34 overs: Cross returns and run out chance on the very first ball - Richa Ghosh the batter in trouble. Her bat is in the air while the ball hits the bails. OUT, confirms the third umpire Claire Polosak. Nat Sciver the architect of this run out is pleased, running to her right from midwicket, turning and sending it to Cross to finish the job. Jhulan hits back with a FOUR right after through mid off,  but eventually holes out to Danni Wyatt at backward point, Richa Ghosh run out (Sciver) 33 (56b); Jhulan Goswami c Wyatt b Cross 20 (26b).

IND 123/7 in 33 overs: Heather Knight has brought herself into the attack now. Just three singles from it for India.

IND 120/7 in 32 overs: Cross is back. Three balls in, Jhulan Goswami shows the Indian top order how it's done as she sends one flying straight over the ground for SIX. Ghosh compliments that with FOUR just edged by the keeper. Good over this for India and Cross can't be cross about this fight-back.

IND 108/7 in 31 overs: Dean is in for her eighth straight over. She might be in no mood to gift runs but Jhulan the pinch hitter can only be denied that long. She thumps a full length ball down the ground for FOUR.

IND 103/7 in 30 overs: Kate Cross comes into the attack for the first time today and Amy Jones is up to the stumps. They're going to try and deny Richa Ghosh the chance to free her arms but Ghosh finds a way going down the pitch to thump one down through the covers for FOUR. Five runs come off the over in total.



IND 98/7 in 29 overs:
Dean is tossing the ball up again and going fuller. Ghosh and Goswami are happy to safely see the over through. Just two runs off it.

IND 96/7 in 28 overs: Ecclestone holds up her end of the stingy bargain at the other end. The English chokehold began in over 1 and continues in over 28. Just two runs from this over by the World's No.1 ODI bowler.

IND 94/7 in 27 overs: Dean returns for a miserly 1-run over. This is good from England.

IND 93/7 in 26 overs: Ecclestone returns and now the pressure is on Richa Ghosh to be brave and find the boundary and get India to a competitive total. Despite the initial chokehold, Ghosh still finds the fence over cover for FOUR.

IND 88/7 in 25 overs: OH APPEAL FOR LBW first ball. The umpire's finger goes up. Vastrakar is almost walking but chooses to appeal and is saved given that impact is outside off. Vastrakar lives to face another ball but it looks like she'll live to face just a few more as a sweep attempt sees England appeal yet again. She appeals the decision but this time, the stars (line, impact, wickets) align giving Charlie Dean her third wicket. Pooja Vastrakar lbw b Dean 6 (9b).

IND 86/6 in 24 overs: Ecclestone back in to try and choke the new batters. She's staying with the full length balls, trying to bring these batters to make an error. A slightly slower ball allows Ghosh some room to cut to backward point for FOUR.

IND 81/6 in 23 overs: Relatively good over for India as no wicket has fallen and nine runs have come off it. Vastrakar and Ghosh are happy to run and keep the scoreboard ticking but Ghosh can't help but free her arms too and gets FOUR over mid-off.

IND 72/6 in 22 overs: Early intent from Mandhana as she sends a tossed up ball to the mid off boundary. India needs to step on the gas here but what do we have instead?! SMRITI GOES! BIG WICKET and ECCLESTONE IS ECSTATIC! For all her hard work, she gets Mandhana LBW. The Indian opener obviously reviews, hoping that the height goes in her favour. Impact is off but the review confirms the dismissal. India staring at a world of hurt here in Tauranga. Smriti Mandhana lbw b Ecclestone 35 (58b).

IND 67/5 in 21 overs: Dean's switching things up now. From going short to begin with, she's opting to go a little fuller now to Ghosh. Mandhana manages a single off a slightly tossed up delivery and that will be the only run of the over.

IND 66/5 in 20 overs: Another maiden over for Sophie Ecclestone and India's dot ball hoarding problem endures.

IND 66/5 in 19 overs: Dean is back and she is pitching it up and going short, perhaps hungry for a third wicket early. The Indians are in no hurry. Two runs come off the over.

IND 64/5 in 18 overs: Only three runs from this over as Ghosh and Mandhana cautiously look at how they can negotiate the next few overs.

IND 61/5 in 17 overs: Charlie Dean comes in to the attack with some more spin for the proceedings and she delivers almost instantly, getting Harmanpreet Kaur. Playinf true to script this off-spin x Harman equation. Harman has knicked it to Jones behind the stumps. Hold on, she's not done. She sends the new batter - Sneh Rana -  right back! Almost identical dismissal this as she knicks an inviting ball going straight this time to the keeper. Rana came in, as Mir opines, because off-spin is Richa Ghosh's kryptonite too. Looks like she has no choice now as she trudges in much earlier than she would have wanted to. Wicket maiden for Charlie Dean. What a start! Harmanpreet Kaur c †Jones b Dean 14 (26b), Sneh Rana c †Jones b Dean 0 (2b)

IND 61/3 IN 16 overs: Another quiet over from Ecclestone who concedes just three runs.

IND 58/3 in 15 overs: Sciver returns and she has the daunting task of trying to get rid of one of this Mandhana-Kaur pair. Three runs for India from this over.

IND 55/3 in 14 overs: Ecclestone comes into the attack. Mission frustration will be England's go to ploy here. Just the one run from this over. Time for drinks.

IND 54/3 in 13 over: 10 runs from this Sciver over and here's why. Harman gets a gorgeous cover drive and runs a couple as the England field tries tov maintain the momentum the three early wickets have given them.

IND 44/3 in 12 overs: Shrubsole's brought out the inswingers now as she tries to tighten things here but Harman managed a boundary with a very soft edge running away wide of slip for FOUR.

IND 39/3 in 11 overs: Full on the pads by Sciver to Kaur and she tucks it to mid on for one. The slips are gone now for Mandhana. Angling down leg and Mandhana clips it behind for one more. Kaur defends back to the bowler to end the over.

IND 37/3 in 10 overs: Shrubsole continues to pile the pressure on with four more dot balls. FOUR! A breather for Mandhana after she drives between cover and mid off to find the boundary. WIDE! Drifted down leg. A couple more to end the over and seven from it after all after the first four dots.

IND 30/3 in 9 overs: Nat Sciver into the attack. Harmanpreet Kaur is in and this partnership will be crucial for India. She defends the first couple of balls on off before flicking one to midwicket for one. Short from Sciver and Mandhana pulls it fine again for one.

IND 28/3 in 8 overs: Shrubsole continues. A couple of dots to start with as she pitches it up to Deepti on and around off stump. WIDE! This one drifts down leg. A desperate swing and a miss from Deepti after she faces eight balls without opening her account. OUT! Deepti is short of her crease and she is gone. She tapped to mid off and hared for one but a brilliant direct hit from Kate Cross finds Deepti short at the non-striker's end. Deepti Sharma run out (Kate Cross) 0(10b 0x4 0x6).

IND 27/2 in 7 overs: Full delivery from Brunt and driven by Mandhana between point and cover for two. A couple of good length balls on middle and a couple fuller ones around off. Mandhana cannot get them away beyond the fielders in the circle. Just two runs from the over.

IND 25/2 in 6 overs: Some impressive swing early on for Shrubsole. OUT! Mithali drives straight to the hands of point. Umpires will check if that carried but soft signal is out. Fingers under the ball and the skipper goes. Mithali Raj 1(5b 0x4 0x6). Deepti is in at number four. She defends the next four balls and that's a wicket maiden for Shrubsole.

IND 25/1 in 5 overs: FOUR! Brunt goes short and Mandhana swivels and pulls it to the backward square leg fence. WIDE! This one drifts down leg side. Three fuller ones on the off side keeps Mandhana quiet as she continues to find the fielders on the off. Short this one and Mandhana rocks back and pulls again for one. A quick single for Mithali as she hares for one after the ball rolls to behind square off the inside edge.

IND 18/1 in 4 overs: FOUR! Mandhana pounces on this full delivery on off with a serene cover drive and it runs away between cover and point. Driven by Mandhana to mid off for one. OUT! Yastika is knocked over and Shrubsole completes 100 ODI wickets. It came in after pitching on off and through Yastika's attempted drive. Yastika Bhatia b Anya Shrubsole 8(11b 1x4 0x6). Mithali Raj is beaten first ball.

IND 13/0 in 3 overs: Mandhana flicks it behind for one. Yastika on the charge by going down the track to Brunt and driving straight to mid off. Three dots follow with Yastika timing it well but finding the fielders. FOUR! Yastika squeezes this through mid on and mid wicket and takes it past both diving fielders. A couple to end the over.

IND 6/0 in 2 overs: Two slips for Shrubsole. Full and on off stump, Mandhana drives beautifully through covers for a couple. Should have been three ideally. A single to end the over with Mandhana dabbing to third with an open face. Shrubsole keeps it tight on and around off stump.

IND 3/0 in 1 over: Katherine Brunt with the ball and Mandhana is on strike.  One slip in place. A slight delay here before first ball. One of the players seems to be ill hence the delay. First ball glides down leg and she tucks it on leg for a quick single; a direct-hit would have been the end for her at the non-striker's end. One leg-bye. Yastika drives through the covers for an easy couple. Good disciplined start from Brunt, who keeps it full and on off stump, not giving Yastika any room to free her arms.

The England team is a long huddle on the boundary. Smriti Mandhana and Yastika Bhatia skip to the middle to open the innings for India. England players take the knee.

6:22 AM: Players assemble for the national anthems. India's is up first.

Harmanpreet Kaur: I always wanted to do well for my team and it is great that I have got three centuries in the World Cup. But I want to be greedy and get some more. Injuries are a part of life. Whenever my low part is going on, I look to bounce back harder. Some niggles are always with you but it is important to come back and do well for the team. In the last match we did well and we want to enjoy ourselves and do the same thing today as well.

WHAT THE CAPTAINS SAID

Mithali Raj: We would have batted first given it's a dry pitch. We are unchanged. We would like to be consistent and that has benefited the team. With the experience and exposure of being the finalists in the T20 World Cup and with a lot of them playing in the Big Bash League as well, it helps in such situations.

Heather Knight: We're going to have a bowl. It's a fresh pitch and although it is dry, we want to keep them to a low total. We're playing the same team. Today feels like the day where it would click. A lot of fight from the girls. There is always pressure. We are still in it 100 percent.

PITCH REPORT: A brand new surface for this game. Not much grass on the wicket so pacers won't find much assistance off the pitch. However, South Africa pacer Marizanne Kapp took five for 45 in the previous game at this ground against England.

The Women's World Cup 2022 so far at Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui

Matches played: 5

Batting first won: 3

Batting second won: 2

Average first innings score: 230

Highest successful run-chase: 236

HERE ARE ALL THE RECORDS THAT TUMBLED DURING THE INDIA VS WEST INDIES MATCH

KEY MILESTONES

  • Jhulan Goswami needs one wicket to become the first woman to take 250 ODI wickets.
  • Anya Shrubsole is one wicket away from becoming the sixth English player to take 100 ODI wickets.
  • Harmanpreet Kaur (2849 runs) needs eight runs to surpass Anjum Chopra (2856 runs) and become the second-highest run-scorer for India in ODIs.

5:15AM: England is hoping to resurrect its World Cup title defence against the very opponent it beat in the 2017 World Cup final. Here's what Indian skipper Mithali Raj had to say about that day.

5AM: England, the defending champion, hasn’t been off to a good start. Heather Knight & Co. have lost all three of their matches to slip down to the seventh spot in the points table. Their inability to close matches in the dying minutes has proved costly.

If they lose on Wednesday, the possibility of making it to the top four will diminish, and they will have to depend on other results.
