    That's all from us...

    India Women will be looking for a win as both teams next clash in the 2nd T20I on Saturday (December 9) at the same venue while England will be seeking to seal the series. We will be back with live coverage for the second game and now it's time for goodbye.

    Heather Knight: We continued to attack, picked the right areas

    Really good game. We continued to attack, picked the right areas, had a good partnership. It's the way we want to approach the game. We want to put the pressure back on opposition. I would have bowled first. We were really pleased with the total, quick outfield. [one area to improve] A lot of extras we conceded, we could improve on that.

  • 10:41 PM (IST) Posted by Sumeet Kavthale

    Harmanpreet: I was expecting good fielding

    We didn't follow our plans. New bowlers will learn quickly before heading to T20 World Cup. I know it's a tough game. They are very good batters, they have played good cricket for so many years. we had slight change in bowling department so we will come back stronger. I was expecting good fielding, but when you are away from international game, pressure could get to you. [On chase] We just needed to back ourselves, we were looking for good start. After a couple of wickets, we had control over the game but the last ten overs didn't quite go to plan.

  • 10:41 PM (IST) Posted by Sumeet Kavthale

    Sciver-Brunt clinches POTM

    I am really happy. Been playing cricket in Australia, so really happy to be back with England and put up a performance like this. We wanted to be brave and take the attack to opposition. Danni did that pretty well and we were able to build that partnership, she took that pressure off me. What's great about us is we have different strength. We worked together well in a partnership. Happy for her 100th game. Wicket was pretty good, there was something for spinners if you bowl in right area and the slower balls were quite effective which made it slightly difficult for the batters.
