Put into bat, England folded up fore 68 in 17.1 overs after fine bowling efforts by Titas Sadhu, Parshavi Chopra and Archana Devi, who took two wickets each.

India then overhauled the modest target in 14 overs with Soumya Tiwari remaining not out on 24. Gongadi Trisha too made 24 after opener and captain Shafali Verma had scored 15.
