off 27 from Danielle Wayatt and 41 off 43 balls from Nat Sciver and at one stage were 134/3. But once Amy Jones departed, India quickly got hold of the match and later Sneh Rana bowled a superb last over to seal the deal for India.

India had won the toss and opted to bat first and the decision proved to be exactly right as Smriti Mandhana went onto slam a FIFTY off just 23 balls. Meanwhile England hit back as they managed to dismiss a misfiring Shafali Verma and soon accounted for Mandhana in a space of a few balls. Skipper Harmanpreet’s poor form continued and India were stuttering at 106/3. From here on Jemimah Rodriguez (44) helped India make a comeback into the match as she and Deepti Sharma shared a 43-run stand for the fifth wicket. Eventually, they set England 165-run target.

Ahead of the Indian team’s departure to Birmingham for the women’s T20 cricket event in the 2022 Commonwealth Games, words from Smriti Mandhana and Harmanpreet Kaur were all about the chance of winning a medal, especially gold, at Edgbaston. Come Saturday, and India’s quest for winning the elusive yellow metal could gain a big push if they cross the hurdle named England in the first semifinal.

In India’s campaign till now, there have been positives all around despite the heartbreaking three-wicket loss to Australia from a position of strength. Harmanpreet took the lead in attacking with the bat against Australia, which was carried forward by Smriti Mandhana and Shafali Verma against Pakistan. Against Barbados, where they were reduced to 92-4, Jemimah Rodrigues (56 not out) and Deepti Sharma (34 not out) delivered the goods with the bat.
