Fiery Indian Women conquer England; Jhulan bids Adieu

India won the ODI Series 3-0.

TNI Bureau: India sealed a famous ODI series win and ensured a clean sweep of 3-0 to give a perfect farewell to Jhulan Goswami. India defeated England by 16 runs in the 3rd ODI at the Lord’s Cricket Stadium.

Chasing a 170 goal, England had dropped to 103 for eight. However, Captain Amy Jones and Charlie Dean fielded a rear guard to frustrate the Indian bowlers. Jones was dismissed on the 28th by Renuka, who was the bowlers’ choice with four wickets to her name.

However, Dean threatened to take the game away from India before her controversial elimination on the 47th by Deepti Sharma. Earlier, England bundled India for 169 runs despite fifties from Smriti Mandhana and Deepti. Smriti scored 50 runs while Deepti was not out with 68.

Meanwhile, Jhulan Goswami was sent off for a first-ball duck in her last international. For England, Kate Cross returned figures of 4 for 26, while Freya Kemp and Sophie Ecclestone claimed two wickets apiece.
