India women vs England women: IND W 201/8, Eng W 202/2 in 34.5 overs. ENGLAND WIN BY 8 WICKETS. A mismatch, as the commentator says. Natalie Sciver and Tammy Beaumont smash half-centuries as England power home in no time. India just not good enough with the bat - 201 was never going to be enough to challenge England. They have to rethink about their batting approach - way too slow. England showed how it's done, attacking through their chase. England 1, India 0.
India women vs England women: IND W 201/8, Eng W 165/2 in 31 overs. Natalie Sciver is approaching her 50, and the partnership is nearing a 100. England well on course for an easy win, but it's raining in Bristol. Not too heavily, so play continues.
India women vs England women: IND W 201/8, Eng W 122/2 in 24 overs. FIFTY by Tammy Beaumont is powering England. They'll reach their target pretty soon at this rate. Terrific intent and strokeplay, along with Natalie Sciver.
India women vs England women: IND W 201/8, Eng W 84/2 in 16 overs. WICKET - Heather Knight b Ekta Bisht 18(30). Loopy ball, Knight is deceived in the flight as she draws forward and drives, misses it and is bowled. Would have been stumped otherwise.
India women vs England women: IND W 201/8, Eng W 72/1 in 11.1 overs: Tammy Beaumont is on fire. 39 off 31 at the moment, using her feet superbly against India's spinners. England showing India how to bat with intent in ODIs.
India women vs England women: IND W 201/8, Eng W 24/1 in 4.4 overs: WICKET - Lauren Winfield C Bhatia b Jhulan Goswami 16 (20). Back of length outside off, Winfield looks to push it to the off side and gets a thick edge to the keeper.
India women vs England women: IND W 201/8, Eng W 22/0 in 4 overs: Good start by England's openers. A quick one too. India's pacers unable to break through. There was an lbw appeal and a review by India against Tammy Beaumont, but it was missing the stumps. India need a wicket.
India women vs England women: IND W 201/8. India finally managed to get to a total of 200 as they have set a target of 202 in front of the hosts. Will this be enough? Meanwhile kudos to Mithali Raj for top scoring with 71 runs.
India women vs England women: 195/7 with just two overs to go. Meanwhile India men's team are gearing hard for the Sri Lanka tour. Here is what the new India skipper said: "This is a very good team. There is positivity, confidence in our team and everybody is confident that we will do well. There is lot of excitement," Dhawan said at the virtual pre-departure press-conference in the presence of head coach Rahul Dravid."
India women vs England women: INDW 179/6: WICKET! Mithali Raj, the top scorer, is gone and with that India's last hope of a quick accelaration. This is not that bad wicket and a score less than 230 will push India's bowlers.
India are slow even by last decade.
India are playing a brand of 50-over cricket that belongs to the previous decade #IndvEng— Sambit Bal (@sambitbal) June 27, 2021
India women vs England women: INDW 134/4 (40): India have just ten overs; now the question is will India even get to 200? Mithali Raj is approaching his fifty. A lot is riding on her.
India women vs England women: INDW 120/4 (36): "There are lot of people in the squad who are pushing for places or looking to cement their places in the T20 World Cup. But the key goal for everyone in the squad is to try and win the series. That’s the primary objective. Hopefully people can get the opportunity to put in good performances in the course of winning the series, and knock doors of selectors," Dravid in press conference ahead of SL Tour.
India women vs England women: INDW 113/4 (34): Dipti Sharma is on the charge here. Meanwhile Mithali Raj looking to play the fifty overs. Meanwhile Rahul Dravid, India’s coach for the Sri Lanka tour, attended a press conference along with skipper Shikhar Dhawan before the team’s departure to the island for a white-ball series. Dravid spoke in detail about the objective of the tour, the future of the India A programme, what this series means for him and more.
India women vs England women: INDW 90/4(30)---A boundary from Dipti Sharma brings the score to 90. But this is very level-headed from India. Just 20 overs to go; India need big runs.
IND are now three down.
India women vs England women: IND W 79/2(24)--A solid stand between skipper Mithali Raj and Poonam Raut. Both have taken some time to settle down here but now look set for some big runs. They have lots of overs on the board. We are not even halfway mark in this game.
A quick summation of the story so far.

England have bowled well to restrict India to 62-2 after 20 overs, with both openers removed early on. Can Raut and Raj stage a fightback for the visitors?

India women vs England women Live Score: IND W 59/2 (19): It has been almost 20 overs and India are not even close to 100 run mark. They have been very very slow and the wicket looks a batting paradise. Need that accelarator.
India are 45/2 in 15.Feel there's overreliance on openers to set the tone.Raut,Mithali take time to get going.Should Ind look to use pinch hitter?In the last 10 onus is too much on Harmanpreet to get the scoring rate moving. v SA, Ind scored 30-40 less than par almost everytime— Sarang Bhalerao (@bhaleraosarang) June 27, 2021
India women vs England women Live Score: Drinks break and India are 45/2. India lost 1-4 against South Africa and there was a lot of debate about Shafali’s omission from that series. However on Sunday, no such harakiri was committed by the Indian team management, which now understands Shafali’s true value all the more after her stellar Test debut against England last week with scores of 96 and 63.
India women vs England women Live Score: IND W 42/2-Double boundaries this over, carbon copy in-fact. Poonam Raut smashing those two to off side. India need to rebuild here.

India women vs England women Live Score: IND W 27/2 (10): WICKET! Smriti Mandhana is the second dismissal of the day. She was looking to cut this one but never had the room to do so; sees her stumps flying. So, the start that India were looking for lies in tatters.
India women vs England women Live Score: IND W 27/1 (9): Poonam Raut survives LBW. That was a good review from India. It looked like missing the leg stump and it did. Smriti Mandhana is the set batter and the onus is on her to get India going; Shrubsole back in attack.
That's how Varma's dismissal played out.
Indw vs Engw live score IND 25/1(7)---Teen sensation Shafali Verma made her eagerly-anticipated ODI debut. But wasn't a happy outing. Departed for 15 runs but not before taking her chances and keeping England on the edge.

India women vs England women: IND 3/0: Good tight over to start proceedings here in Bristol. Smriti Mandhana and Shafali Varma looking good and in no mood to get bogged down. It seems they will open up their shoulders very early.
We are very close to schedule start....Indian openers are walking out in the middle. Fans hoping for some fireworks from Shafali Varma on debut.
IND W vs ENG W, 1st ODI Live Score: India women vs England women: India women vs England women: India women vs England women: IND W 201/8, Eng W 202/2 in 34.5 overs. ENGLAND WIN BY 8 WICKETS. A mismatch, as the commentator says. Natalie Sciver and Tammy Beaumont smash half-centuries as England power home in no time. India just not good enough with the bat – 201 was never going to be enough to challenge England. They have to rethink about their batting approach – way too slow. England showed how it’s done, attacking through their chase. England 1, India 0.
The 17-year-old batting sensation, who has taken world cricket by storm, has so far played 22 T20 Internationals but was inexplicably not picked for the last home series against South Africa Women, with India witnessing disastrous consequences.
India lost 1-4 against South Africa and there was a lot of debate about Shafali’s omission from that series.
However on Sunday, no such harakiri is expected to be committed by the Indian team management, which now understands Shafali’s true value all the more after her stellar Test debut against England last week with scores of 96 and 63.
Her big-hitting prowess would certainly be of great value for the Indian team, which has lacked impact players save vice-captain Harmanpreet Kaur, who herself has not been in the best of form.
With defensive plodders like Punam Raut, skipper Mithali herself in the top-order, Shafali on her day could be the difference between a sub-par total of 200 and winning score of 235 to 240.
The manner in which Shafali hammered the likes of Anya Shrubsole, Katherine Brunt, Kate Cross, Nat Sciver and Sophie Ecclestone on her Test debut, the home team’s coaching staff would certainly be burning the midnight oil to stop the new ‘Haryana Hurricane’.
It would be interesting to check out India’s team composition which came under a lot of scanner during the series against the Proteas.
Priya Punia had a moderate series against the South Africans at home and India have the option of rookie keeper-batter Indrani Roy, who was selected in the squad on the back of a great domestic 50-over tournament.
If Smriti Mandhana and Shafali open the batting, Indrani might have to wait for her chance as Raut, after a good show and sightly improved strike-rate, would love to come in at No 3, followed by her skipper and deputy Kaur at No 5.
All-rounder Deepti Sharma is a sure-shot at No 6 and the choice between Taniya Bhatia and Indrani could mean that the former would be slightly favourite after her second innings performance.
Among four bowlers, the economical Jhulan Goswami is an automatic choice and it would be two among Shikha Pandey, Puja Vastrakar and Arundhati Reddy.
The Indian team had seen how Ecclestone with his wicket-to-wicket left-arm orthodox spin bowling troubled the Indians during the lone Test and hence either Ekta Bisht or Radha Yadav, with similar skill sets, might get preference.
In case, India decides to go with a third spinner, Sneh Rana with her batting capabilities and impressive off-breaks will be pitted against diminutive leg-spinner Poonam Yadav.
But Yadav’s disastrous performance against South Africa, (0 wickets in five games) makes Rana favourite.
For England, Sophia Dunkley, after her impressive Test debut last week, is set to get her maiden WODI cap but the batting would mostly depend on seasoned pros Tammy Beaumont, skipper Heather Knight and all-rounder Siver.
