England women’s team thumped India by 7 wickets in the third and final T20I to the clinch the series 2-1. Chasing a target of 123 runs at Bristol, the home side were off to a brilliant start as Sophia Dunkley and Danielle Wyatt put up a 70-run stand for the first wicket inside 10 overs.
The partnership was eventually broken after Wyatt was sent back in the hut for 22 off 23 by Sneh Rana and her dismissal was followed by a couple of more wickets in quick succession, leaving the side slightly worried at 79/3 in 12.5 overs.
On the contrary, England got off to a great start while chasing the 123-run target, when openers Sophia Dunkley and Danni Wyatt shared a massive 70-run stand with the former taking charge of the game brilliantly. Dunkley was on the go from the moment she entered the game with the bat and started piling up runs as soon as she saw the opportunity.
Yadav, Dunkley lost momentum in the next over when she faced Pooja Vatsrakar and was dismissed for 49(44). After dismissing the openers, the Indian bowlers managed to send the English skipper Amy Jones back to the pavilion, and just when it looked like India had bounced back in the game Alice Capsey put up a brilliant show on display.
Capsey carried the game forward there on and did not let India a single opportunity to go for a win. Her 38*(24) helped the English side survive the wickets scare, and she brought her team back into the game by playing the match-winning knock. Thanks to her power-hitting abilities, England successfully chased down the target with 10 deliveries to spare and win the series 2-
