After three disappointing losses in the ongoing ICC Women's World Cup 2022, defending champions England finally lodged their first points in the tournament. Opting to field first, England's bowling were led by young Charlotte Dean who took a career-best 4/23 to skittle out India for 134 in 36.2 overs. The Indians were never in the game from the start as they were down to 28/3 in eight overs. Smriti Mandhana and Harmanpreet Kaur tried to steady the ship with a 33-run stand but that didn't last long. A 37-run stand for the eighth wicket by Richa Ghosh and Jhulan Goswami took India past 130-run mark. Chasing a paltry total, England were in a spot of bother losing both openers with just four runs on board. But Natalie Sciver (45) and Heather Knight (53 not out) stitched 65 runs to put them in a comfortable position. England lost four more wickets towards the end, but Knight ensured safe passage with more than 19 overs to spare. Get highlights of IND-W vs ENG-W.

5:47 AM IST: Welcome

Hello and welcome to the live coverage of a cracker of a contest between India and England in the ongoing ICC Women's World Cup 2022.  

England’s hopes of defending their title at the Women’s ODI Cricket World Cup 2022 faltered Monday when they lost by three wickets to South Africa to be left without a win after three matches. England have a good recent record against India and with every game now a must-win for them the reigning champions will look to play their best game.


India come into the game after beating West Indies in their last match by 155 runs, taking their record to two wins from three matches, as Harmanpreet Kaur and Smriti Mandhana scored brilliant centuries.

Smriti Mandhana and Harmanpreet Kaur’s 184-run partnership saw India set the West Indies an ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup record chase of 318. Jhulan Goswami dismissed Anisa Mohammed to become the leading wicket-taker in World Cups with her 40th scalp as India sealed victory.

England have been hampered by poor fielding in this World Cup and one example has been dropping at least three catches from South Africa opener Laura Wolvaardt, who made a decisive 77 from 101 balls to fashion a South African win.
