  • Team India won the three-match series on high note
  • On her farewell match, Jhulan scalped 2 wickets
  • Jhulan became the first woman to bowl 10000 deliveries in ODIs

Team India gave a perfect farewell to legendary player Jhulan Goswami by winning the series 3-0 against England at Lord's on Saturday. In the third match, India won by 16 runs and recorded their first ever series sweep on England soil. The last time the Indian women won an ODI series in England was in 1999 when they triumphed 2-1.

England won the toss and opted to bowl first. The Harmanpreet Kaur-led team lost early wickets and the batting line-up was shattered by the England bowlers. while Kate Cross took a brilliant four-wicket haul, Freya Kemp and Sophie Ecclestone scalped 2 wickets each. Charlotte Dean picked one wicket. However, opener Smriti Mandhana managed to smash a 79-ball fifty and Deepti Sharma added crucial 68 runs off 106 deliveries. In her farewell match, Jhulan was dismissed on a golden duck.

India were bowled out and set a target of 170 runs.

When it came to England's innings, their batters struggled to score runs as well. They started losing early wickets and were 65/7 after Kemp's wicket after 16.6 overs. For India, Renuka Singh scalped four wickets. On the other hand, Jhulan and Rajeshwari Gayakwad picked two wickets each. But Team England bounced back with Dean's powerful batting, who scored 47 off 80 balls. But the tables soon turned when Dean was run out by Deepti and India registered a 16-run win to send off Goswami in style.

Controversy regarding the last wicket:

Deepti dismissed Dean through Mankading when she saw the england batteroutside the crease at the non-striker's end and removed the bails before completing her delivery stride. Even though it is legal and within the rules of cricket, questiona were raised on her decision.
