Indian Women vs English Women 3rd T20I LIVE Score and Updates: Brunt with the new ball for England. Beats Mandhana on the outside on the first delivery and the left-hander comes out of the target with a hit on the next one. The Shafali vs. Brunt battle is on display again over the course, and Brunt has the final say, getting rid of Shafali, who brought the ball back to the stumps of the fourth. A wicket and a leak above it. Superb start for England.
The tour started with a well-contested draw in the one-off test where figures like Shafali Verma and Sneh Rana showcased their talent. This was followed by a 2-1 series loss in the ODI, with Mithali Raj steadily registering over 50 scores despite the series loss.
However, with the T20I streak at 1-1 after India’s eight-point victory in Game 2, the visitors now have a chance to take the win to end the tour in a positive way. England leads the scoring in the 8-6 multi-format series.
Shafali Verma was by far the impressive hitter in Game 2, where she scored the best point with 48 to lead India 148/4 over 20 overs. Skipper Harmanpreet (31) put on a better show, while Mandhana (20) and Deepti Sharma (24 *) played crucial cameo roles. Mady Villiers was England’s most economical bowler, scoring 1/9 on two occasions.
In their chase, England got off to a rocky start, losing Danielle Wyatt and Nat Sciver in the first three overs. However, a crucial 75-point partnership between Tammy Beaumont (59) and skipper Heather Knight (30) brought the hosts back into the race before the former was knocked out LBW by Deepti Sharma, leaving England at 106- 3. A flurry of wickets followed as Knight and Sophia Dunkley were seen, leaving the hosts in tatters at 125-6. England ended up with a total of 140/8. Poonam Yadav finished with two wickets, but Deepti Sharma (24 * and 1/18) was named player of the match for her overall resilience.
