1st ODI: India Win a Thriller Against England

England Innings

Openers Danielle Wyatt and Tammy Beaumont set up a good opening partnership, taking the score to 71 in 11.3 overs. But then Poonam Yadav struck and claimed the crucial wickets of Danielle Wyatt and Amy Jones in the same over. As the spinners continued to claim wickets, it was Fran Wilson’s 45 and a 33 by Danielle Hazell that took England to 207/10 in 49.3 overs.

With a 4-wicket haul, Poonam Yadav was the highest wicket-taker for India.

India Innings

The in-form Smriti Mandhana led India’s chase with a spectacular knock of 86 off 109 balls. However, in what seemed like a 2017 World Cup final deja vu, India’s batting order collapsed, leaving the 10th wicket partnership to chase the final 18 runs off 18 balls. In a display of grit and confidence by Ekta Bisht and Poonam Yadav, the duo chased down the target in the death overs leading India to a thrilling win.

India won by 1 wicket.

India Lead Series

Bagging a win in the 1st ODI, India now lead the series 1-0.
