England v India: England secures 2-1 series victory Against India

Sophia Dunkley and Alice Capsey lead England to a seven-wicket victory against India in the final Twenty20 in Bristol.

Dunkley and Danni Wyatt contributed 70 runs for the first wicket in the 123-run chase.

However, England accomplished their goal with 10 balls remaining thanks to Capsey’s unbeaten 38 from 24 balls after losing three early wickets, including Dunkley for 49.

With the victory, England won the series 2-1.

Before Richa Ghosh’s exciting 33 from 21 balls, India, who had been allowed to bat first, slid to 75-7 and finally reached 122-8.

However, England’s fielding effort was much better compared to their eight-wicket loss in the previous match at Derby.

The top-ranked T20 bowler in the world, Sophie Ecclestone, led England’s bowling assault with 3-25, and she was aided by fellow spinner Sarah Glenn, who captured 2-11.

India failed to recover as England dismissed both of their openers in the first four overs, with skipper Harmanpreet Kaur also going cheaply for only five.

Before Pooja Vastrakar’s 19 from 11 balls after the innings, wicketkeeper Ghosh led the comeback with five fours during her brief appearance at number eight.

Although they lost its veteran hitters Dunkley, Wyatt, and Amy Jones, the team’s 18-year-old Capsey displayed incredible poise and talent to seal the victory despite the low total on a decent hitting pitch.

The three-match one-day international series between the sides will begin on Sunday, September 18, at 11:00 BST.
