England Women Team won the first ODI convincingly as they restricted India Women on a manageable total of 201 runs and then chased the target in just 35 overs. Sophie Ecclestone took three wickets and Katherine Brunt and Anya Shurbsole took two wickets each. In the batting department, Tammy Beaumont and Natalie Sciver played match-winning knocks of 87* and 74* respectively.
On the other hand, India Women failed to put enough runs on the board as their top-order batsmen didn’t make big partnerships. However, the skipper Mithali Raj played a sensible knock of 72 runs and put a fighting total on the board.
