IND Vs ENG Women: The Indian women’s cricket team has lost the ODI series being played against England. England beat India by five wickets in the second ODI to take a 2-0 lead in the three-match series. Captain Mithali Raj’s half-century and Shefali Verma’s swashbuckling innings went in vain in front of Kate Cross’s brilliant bowling. In England’s victory, Sophie also made an important contribution to the half-century.
Mithali Raj scored 59 runs off 92 balls with the help of seven fours, while opener Shefali Verma contributed 44 runs off 55 balls. But the rest of the team’s batsmen performed disappointingly and the team could only score 221 runs in 50 overs. Got out.
England also stumbled in front of the easy target and after 28.5 overs their score was 133 runs for five wickets. Sophie made an unbeaten 73 and Katherine Brunt made an unbeaten 33 and shared an unbroken partnership of 92 runs for the sixth wicket. Both these players gave the team victory with 15 balls remaining. England scored 225 for five in 47.3 overs.
Mithali Raj did not come for fielding
Opener Lauren Winfield Hill contributed 42 runs off 57 balls and Amy Allen Jones contributed 28 runs off 34 balls. Poonam Yadav took two wickets for India but for this she spent 63 runs. Jhulan Goswami, Shikha Pandey and Sneh Rana took 1-1 wickets.
Mithali did not come out to field due to neck pain and was replaced by vice-captain Harmanpreet Kaur. England won the first ODI in Bristol by eight wickets. The third ODI will be played in Worcester on July 3 followed by a series of three T20 Internationals. The only Test played between the two teams was a draw.
