Amy Jones, the captain of England Women, is all smiles. Says that winning the first game of the series is always important.

Harmanpreet Kaur, the captain of India Women, is looking very upset. Says that they were forced to play as the conditions were not apt. She is happy that her girls put in the effort. Further says that the ground was too wet and there were chances to get injured. Also says that one of her key bowlers got injured and that affected them. Adds that they are here to play cricket and the next two games are important and they will look to bounce back.
Stay tuned for the presentation...
Earlier, England Women were superb with the ball. They started in an ordinary way but quickly pulled things back. Sarah Glenn's four-fer pushed India Women on the back foot and the touring team never recovered. Deepti Sharma scored some handy runs at the backend but eventually, a total of 132 was demolished by England Women.
This is a game India Women would like to forget quickly. They were below-par with the bat, insipid with the ball and abject with their ground fielding. They dropped a few catches and were shambolic on the field. Renuka Singh had Sophia Dunkley caught in the first over but she had overstepped and from thereon, Dunkley made India pay. Shafali Verma dropped a sitter of a catch offered by her and all in all, nothing went India's way this evening. Harmanpreet Kaur will be very disappointed with the overall effort of her girls.
A thumping win for England Women! They overhauled the target with 7 overs to spare and handed India Women a hefty defeat. It's a clinical performance from the home team, both with the ball and with the bat. Sophia Dunkley was brilliant and made use of the lives granted to her while Alice Capsey once again stamped her class.
