The toss decision favored Team India as Shikha Pandey struck for India early by departing England’s opener- Tammy Beaumont for a duck. Barring the knocks of Natalie Sciver (49) and Heather Knight (46), it was primarily Team India’s bowling show who kept scalping wickets at regular intervals. While the whole of Team India’s bowling unit did disciplined economical bowling, it was Deepti Sharma who took the highest (three) wickets for the Indian side.

The match was reduced to 47-overs-a-side due to a wet outfield.
