Batting failures came back to haunt India Women again Wednesday as they managed only 221 in the second ODI against England Women in Taunton. England chased it down with relative ease, with 15 balls to spare for a five-wicket win. (More Cricket News)
It followed the script from the first ODI. In Bristol, where they fought bravely to force a draw in the lone Test match, India were handed an eight-wicket defeat, with England reaching the target of 202 in 34.5 overs.
Now, Mithali Raj & Co face a series whitewash, unless they produce a match-winning performance against Heather Knight’s bouyant side.
