IND W vs ENG W: It couldn’t be a better finish to the tour as India whitewashed England 3-0 in the ODI series after beating them by 16 runs in the third match of the series.

Riding on valuable contributions from Smriti Mandhana (50 off 79) and Deepti Sharma (68 off 106), India managed to score 169 runs at the end of the first innings.

India didn’t get off to a great start as the likes of Shafali Verma (0), Yastik Bhatia (0), and Harmanpreet Kaur (4) went back to the hut on single-digit scores. Harleen Deol soon departed after scoring just 3 runs in 5 balls and India were in all sorts of trouble at 29 for 4.

But Smriti Mandhana held firm at one end. She kept the scoreboard ticking with his 79-ball 50. The southpaw, however, couldn’t convert her half-century into a ton.

She eventually departed on the 23rd over at 87 for 5. India needed someone to stand tall and guide them to a competitive score. Deepti Sharma came to the team’s rescue as she played an unbeaten knock of 68 runs in 106 balls, including 7 fours.

Her knock helped the team reach 169 runs at the end of the first innings. For England, it was Kate Cross who broke the back of India’s top order. She picked the first four wickets and returned with figures of 4 for 26 in 10 overs. Ecclestone (2 for 27) and Freya Kemp (2 for 24) were also brilliant with their lines and lengths.

England kept losing wickets

England, in reply, started off with a lot of caution. No wicket fell in the first seven overs. Renuka Singh came into her own from the 8th over of the innings. She removed England’s top order with some top-class swing bowling.

In the space of four overs, England had lost 3 wickets and they were suddenly in trouble at 39 for 3, which later became 53 for 6. India kept picking wickets as England had lost 8 wickets for 103.

There was some resistance from Cross and Dean but both of them couldn’t stay till the end. England, in the end, were bundled out for 153 runs, thereby losing the match by 16 runs.
