India Women vs England Women 3rd ODI Highlights: India defeated England by 16 runs in Jhulan Goswami's final international appearance, at the Lord's Cricket Stadium. Chasing a target 170, England had slumped to 103 for eight. However, captain Amy Jones and Charlie Dean put on a rearguard to frustrate the Indian bowlers. Jones was dismissed on 28 by Renuka, who was the pick of the bowlers with four wickets to her name. Dean, however, threatened to take the game away from India, before she was run-out ina controversial manner on 47 by Deepti Sharma. Earlier, England bundled out India for 169 runs despite fifties from Smriti Mandhana and Deepti. Smriti scored 50 runs while Deepti remained not out on 68. Meanwhile, Jhulan Goswami was dismissed for a first-ball duck in her final international match. For England, Kate Cross returned figures of 4 for 26, while Freya Kemp and Sophie Ecclestone claimed two wickets apiece. The match at Lord's, London gives the Harmanpreet Kaur-led side a golden opportunity to complete a series sweep over England and give a memorable farewell to Goswami, who has been India's bowling spearhead for over a decade. On the other hand, England will look to stop the Indian juggernaut and bag a consolation win to end things on a happy note. The Indian team won the first game by 7 wickets and bagged the second game by 88 runs. (SCORECARD)

... The Run Chase ...

England Women were amazing with the ball and they bowled their perfect lines and lengths. None of their bowlers leaked runs and their skipper, Kate Cross was the standout as she registered a spell of 10-2-26-4 and managed to get important wickets of Harmanpreet Kaur and Smriti Mandhana. Freya Kemp and Sophie Ecclestone bagged two wickets each whilst Freya Davies and Charlotte Dean took one. They have made it easy for their batters now and they will be hoping to win this one and walk out of the series with their heads held high.
A pretty decent fight back from India Women! It could've been worse if not for Deepti Sharma and Smriti Mandhana. India Women started off slow and their batters never looked in control. They got some lucky escapes as well as there were several miscommunications between the batters. Smriti Mandhana was the only batter who looked comfortable at the start scoring her 25th ODI fifty and her 7th this year but she got an unlucky dismissal. Deepti Sharma stood well after that as she scored 68 and made the India Women reach a par total of 169. Only three of the Indian batters managed to score in a double-digit and their five batters were dismissed on a duck including Jhulan Goswami. India Women would need some early wickets to get the momentum on their side.
