What a match. England Women declared at 396/9, then put their Indian counterpart on the mat as the hosts take a 209-run lead at the close of Day 2's play of their one-off at Test County Ground, Bristol Thursday. But there was a moment when India were in control. After allowing England to post the highest-ever total against them, India raced to 167 in 49 overs with openers Smriti Mandhana (78) and Shafali Verma (96) toying with the bowlers. But the visitors lost five wickets for 20 runs as Punam Raut, Shikha Pandey and skipper Mithali Raj failed to reach the double figures. Effectively, it was 5/16 in that crazy period after the team. Rival captain Heather Knight herself took a couple, while Natalie Sciver, Kate Cross and Sophie Ecclestone were among the wickets too. At the close of play, India Women were 187/5 in 60 overs.
