India beats Scotland by 86 runs, with its spinners taking nine wickets. India maintains its winning run with a good batting run in the middle for most of its batters.
Sonam Yadav deals the final blow as she forces a mishit from Robertson-Jack and it is Trisha who completes the catch.
Montogomery finally breaks the shackle as she pounces on a rare half-tracker from Archana for four. Archana loops one up and all Sheikh could do was edge it to Richa at first slip. India one wicket away from a win.
Sonam Yadav gets her first over. Sheikh and Muir are being outfoxed by Sonam. Muir tries for a slog and Sonam beats her outside edge and Basu completes the stumping. Scotland is eight down!!
Archana with her third over. A moment of genius from Sonia, who makes a diving stop at fine-leg and then effects a run-out. Scotland running out of wickets. Sheikh tries to go after Archana and skies one, but she can’t get back in time to complete the catch.
Kashyap tosses one up and Tucker swipes blindly and she is trapped in front. Indian spinners are looking unplayable at this moment. End of an incredible, potentially game-winning spell from Mannat Kashyap.
Archana Devi continues to put the pressure on from the other end and she is rewarded with another wicket. This time she forces Bell on her backfoot and hits her on her pad. LBW!! Fifth wicket down for the Scots. Archana draws a false shot from Faisal and dives forward to get the catch, but the umpires felt she didn’t complete it. No wicket there.
Kashyap continues. Fraser tries to paddle one and all she can do is to edge it onto the stumps. Scotland loses its skipper as it struggles to deal with Indian spinners.
Archana Devi gets her first over. She loops one into the arc of Carter, who can only find Sadhu stationed at long-on. Third wicket down for Scotland.
Scotland batters unable to pick Kashyap’s deliveries as she keeps beating the outside edge. She makes Emma Walsingham reach for a shot all she can do is pop it Trisha for an easy catch. She then induces an edge off Fraser, but it runs away for four.
Yashasri continues her opening spell. Carter carts her straight down the innings for the second six of the innings. Width offered and Carter thumps it over covers for a four. Yashasri coaxes an edge, but it races past fine leg for another four. To make it worse she gives away a no-ball. EXPENSIVE OVER!!!
Mannat Kashyap with her left-arm spin puts the brakes on the Scots. A frustrated Lister goes for a big one and she can only sky it to Shweta, who completes the catch. FIRST ONE DOWN FOR SCOTLAND!!
Sadhu continues from the other end. Lister steps out and carves one on the up over covers for a massive six. SHOT OF CONFIDENCE!!! Carter slashes one to point and Richa Ghosh DROPS IT!! Second drop off the innings from India.
Yashasri from the other end with her medium pace. Movement for her as Carter plays outside the line, nearly losing her off stump in the process. Carter though cuts a wide one for four, beyond point. Strong start for Scotland.
Carter and Listen open the innings for Scotland. Good start for them as they take seven runs from Sadhu
Shweta Sehrawat with the final flourish. Back-to-back fours for her against Fraser. She then follows it up with a slog sweep which flies past the boundary. SIX!!! She then steps outside the off stump and thumps it for a four. What a gem of a knock from Shweta (31 from 10) to help India to a more than competitive total.
Basu goes long, but Fraser drops her. These dropped catches might cost Scotland this game. Basu scoops the ball over mid-off for her first four.
Shweta Sehrawat finally comes in. She has been the standout batter for India in this tournament. She goes big straight away. SIX!! Second one of the day and follows it with a four.
Richa Ghosh gives up her helmet and soon loses her wicket. Full toss from Fraser and she finds the long-on fielder. HUGE WICKET!! Hrishita Basu comes in for the first time in this World Cup. Trisha too tries to go for a big one, but she can sky one to deep mid-wicket. DOUBLE BLOW!!
Montgomery with the ball now. She gives width to Richa and she happily slashes it past point. FOUR!! India gets to 100.
Darcey Carter gets her first over and she starts with a wide-four. Another loose ball and Richa Ghosh tries to paddle it over fine-leg. DROPPED!! She is yet to get into her stride as India looks to push the scoreboard. Another wild hoick from her and she is dropped again in the deep. SOME LUCK FOR RICHA GHOSH!!!
Bell with her third over. She keeps things under control, just two runs off it. Robertson-Jack too with her third over. She too pulls in a tight over with her left arm spin.
Richa Ghosh gets into the act. Robertson-Jack with the ball and Richa cuts one through the off-side for her first boundary. Trisha whacks one to long off and gets to her 50. Solid knock from her.
Nayma Shaikh continues on. Once again Trisha drives one through covers, but only for a couple this time. She repeats the shot but is rewarded with a four this time. ELEGANT!! She is getting closer to her fifty, with India yet to get to seventy.
Robertson-Jack gets a turn with the ball. Loose ball down the off and Trisha rocks back and slashes it for another four. India looking to move up a gear. And we have a drinks break.
Nayma Shaikh is brought back into the attack. She pitches on up almost near the offside wide line and Richa reaches out to put it past the cordon. FOUR!! Richa then chips one straight back. Shaikh stretches to her right, but can’t get the ball under her control.
Scotland reels in a couple of quiet overs as India looks to stabilise the innings. Fraser gives away just three in her over, while Montogomery’s over cost five runs. Richa Ghosh taking her time to settle in.
Orla Montogomery with her medium pace into the attack. Width and bounce on offer and Trisha cuts it, with control, for another four. Montogomery surprises Mehdiya with a bouncer, and she can only edge it back to the keeper. INDIA LOSES ITS SECOND!! Richa Ghosh comes in
Katherine Fraser brings herself into the attack. Mehdiya goes for a wild swing to the leg side, but she can’t connect it. Tidy over from the skipper, just four singles off it.
Trisha continues to find the boundaries with some delicate shots. This time a late cut for a four against Sheikh. Follows it up with a double to keep the momentum going.
Bell continues from the other end. Soniya Mendhiya is the new batter for India. Trisha puts away one from her pads for another four. Good start from her. She follows it up with a risky double. If the keeper had gathered it properly, her innings might have ended there.
Nayma Shaikh from the other end for the Scottish, Mid pitch ball and Shafali tries to muscle it, only for her to find the fielder in mid wicket. HUGE WICKET!!! Shafali is gone. Katherine Fraser the Scottish skipper had placed herself at deep midwicket to get rid of here opposite number. Trisha slices one for a four.
Trisha and Shafali open the innings for India. Olivia Bell with her off spin for Scotland. Both of them open their accounts with easy singles.
Two changes for India from the UAE game. Yashasri is in for Parshavi Chopra. Sonam Yadav in for Shabnam
India wins the toss and chooses to bat first against. It will be looking to put in a big total, just like against UAE.
