The Indian women’s squad led by Harmanpreet Kaur seeks absolute retribution for their defeat in the T20Is. The women in blue trounced the women of England by 88 runs in the second One-Day International on Wednesday, taking a commanding 2-0 lead in the three-match series. Harpreet had a great day since everything she touched turned to gold. After scoring a brilliant 143 runs off 111 deliveries, she made the right selections to defend the enormous 333-run total. Each and every bowling change duped the hosts, and Amy Jones & Co. were eventually bowled out for 245. Dayalan Hemalatha killed two, while Renuka Thakur scored 4 for 57. Each Deepti Sharma and Shafali Verma took a wicket.
Some of the England batters did show positive character, but that wasn’t enough to cross the finish line. Danielle Wyatt top-scored with 65 in 58-balls while Alice Capsey and captain Jones contributed with a 39-run inning. But their efforts went in vain. It was the Indian bowling attack that stole the show.
Here are some highlights of Ind W Vs England W second ODI:
Amy Jones, the female captain of England, chose to bowl first after winning the toss. Smriti Mandhana and Shafali Verma, the Indian openers, came out to start the innings on a cloudy day in Canterbury. Lauren Bell launched England’s bowling attack. Kate Cross quickly defeated Shafali Verma.
Together, Yastika Bhatia and Smriti Mandhan rebuilt the innings. Both batsmen advanced methodically and with confidence, smashing every boundary. This Indian partnership helped India Women win the game by scoring 60 runs in just 10 overs.
But Charlotte Dean has managed to restore England. She delivered a flighted pitch. Moving down the track, Yastika Bhatia drove uppishly back to the bowler. Then, in the 19th over, Sophie Ecclestone entered the fray and stunned India by trapping Smriti Mandhana in front for a crucial wicket.
Harmanpreet Kaur and Harleen Deol both hammered their individual fifty-plus scores to put Indian women in dominating positions after 39 overs. While her companion completed his first WODI fifty in this format, Harmnapreet completed his 18th. The pair has also established a century partnership for the fourth wicket.
Harmanpreet Kaur scored a century in a few overs when the English bowlers tried to remove the Indian captain. 250 came up on the board simultaneously from the women in Blue. In the second ODI against Amy Jones & Co., India’s ladies put on an incredible batting display. The women in blue have passed the 300-mile milestone thanks to Harmanpreet’s 100.
India struck a staggering 333/5 in their allotted 50 overs, with Harmanpreet Kaur leading the way with an unbeaten 143 off 111 deliveries. In the format, it was their second-highest team total. Smriti Mandhana contributed with a 41-ball 40, while Harleen Deol scored a solid 58 off 72 for her first-ever WODI fifty. To win, the England women’s team needs 334 runs.
Harmeet started the Indian innings, with Emma Lamb and Tammy Beaumont following suit. Tammy Beaumont’s inning is pretty well over, thanks to Harmanpreet’s direct hit. In 15 overs, Renuka Singh’s outstanding bowling claimed the wickets of Emma Lamb and Dunkley twice.
After the hosts lost two quick wickets, Danielle Wyatt and Alice Capsey put up a spirited fightback. The pair establishes a fifty-run stand, and England Women score 100 runs. Deepti Sharma attempted to break the 55-run partnership and remove Alice Capsey, and Shafali Verma ultimately caught out her.
Danielle Wyatt brought her half-century off just 40 balls. She fought really hard in the chase of 334 and is the key for England in this situation. But unfortunately, Wyatt departed for 65, again with a perfect yorker from Renuka Singh, a massive breakthrough for India. Another bowling change worked for India. Hemlatha changed her length, slowed down a bit, and took her first wicket of Amy Jones.
Then, the women in blue picked up a pace and took wicket after wicket from Sophie Ecclestone, Freya Kemp, to Kate Cross in 38 overs and won the 2nd ODI 2022.
The third and the final ODI, which will also be the farewell game for India veteran Jhulan Goswami, is scheduled to be played at the Lord’s on Saturday.
