India vs England Highlights: India Women beat England by seven wickets in the first ODI to take a 1-0 series lead in the three-match series.
India Women vs England Women, 1st ODI Highlights:Smriti Mandhana's assured 91 and Harmanpreet Kaur's unbeaten 74 guided India Women to a 7-wicket win against England in the first ODI in Hove. Mandhana and Harmanpreet added 99 runs for the third wicket to ensure India were always in the driving seat in the 228-run chase. Earlier, Mandhana and Yastika Bhatia had kept India going after the side lost the wicket of Shafali Verma early. Bhatia fell for 50 and skipper Harmanpreet came out to the middle along with Mandhana, and the two took the match away from England, even though the latter narrowly missed out on a century. Harmanpreet went on to hit her half-century and saw India through without any more hiccups, and rather fittingly, hit the winning six. England had posted 227/7. For India, Deepti Sharma claimed two wickets, while Meghna Singh, Jhulan Goswami, Sneh Rana, Harleen Deol and Rajeshwari Gayakwad took a wicket each. On the other hand, Alice Davidson-Richards' unbeaten 50-run knock and 43 from Danielle Wyatt played a big role in taking England to a respectable total despite losing wickets at regular intervals.
