Indian Bowlers dominate England

India captain Harmanpreet Kaur opted to bowl first after India won the toss. The Indian bowlers were in the superb vein of form as they dominated from the early proceedings. Jhulan Goswami, playing in her farewell series was spot on with the ball as she gave away 20 runs in 10 overs and scalped a wicket.

Davidson Richards was the highest scorer for the English side as she made 50 off 61 deliveries. Indian bowlers were also in full swing as everyone was on the wicket-takers list apart from one of the seven bowlers used. England only managed to put 227/7 in their 50 overs.
