India Women returned to Test cricket after eight years and have successfully beaten England Women to register their back-to-back win against the hosts. The last time India won was at Taunton in 2006. This is India Women’s fourth Test victory and second against England. England have managed to win only once against India. A great start for India Women in the series. Time to sign off from here. Hope you have enjoyed. Thanks!

Player of  the match – Jenny Gunn for her five-wicket haul and an unbeaten 62.

India women 183/4 | Overs 95.3 | Mithali Raj 50(157) | Shikha Pandey 28(106)

Shikha Pandey hits the winning runs, as India registered their second Test win against England and back-to-back win, with a gap of eight years in between. Mithali Raj unbeaten on 50. Really a historic moment for India Women.

India women 166/4 | Overs 91 | Mithali Raj 44(140) | Shikha Pandey 18(96)

Fifty runs partnership between Mithali Raj and Shikha Pandey. India require 15 to win.

India women 161/4 | Overs 88 | Mithali Raj 40(130) | Shikha Pandey 17(88)

Few dropped chances. Mithali Raj was dropped by Charlotte Edwards at mid-off. India require 20 runs to win.

India women 155/4 | Overs 85 | Mithali Raj 37(118) | Shikha Pandey 16(79)

India closing near to victory. 27 runs to win.

India women 151/4 | Overs 81 | Mithali Raj 36(109) | Shikha Pandey 14(67)

New ball has been taken. Billy Taylor waves it. Kate Cross to bowl and Shikha Pandey faces it. India require 30 to win.

India women 134/4 | Overs 76 | Mithali Raj 28(98) | Shikha Pandey 6(48)

Mithali Raj and Shikha Pandey are taking one at a time. They are not hurrying and taking chances. A lot of cheering and clapping by the England players. India require 47 runs.

India women 126/4 | Overs 69 | Mithali Raj 22(82) | Shikha Pandey 4(22)

Few chances missed by England. Mithali Raj dropped by Sarah Taylor and Shikha Pandey almost trapped for leg-before, but there was big thick edge. India need 55 runs to win with six wickets left. However, keeping in mind Shubhlakshmi Sharma is unlikely to play, India have five wickets in hand.

India women 121/4 | Overs 66 | Mithali Raj 21(70) | Shikha Pandey 1(16)

Anya Shrubsole bowl the first over of the day. Kate Cross is the second bowler. Couple of runs from India. Shikha Pandey, night watchman, is out there with Mithali Raj.



Welcome to CricketCountry’s live blog of Day Four of the only Test between India and England at Wormsley. I am Sudatta Mukherjee and I’ll be bringing the live updates of the match. The Indian women’s team are in a far better position than their men’s counterpart. India are 62 runs away from a win with six wickets in hand.

Sarah Taylor’s 40 and Jenny Gunn’s 62 helped England post 202 leaving India to chase 181. India got off to the best possible start when Thirush Kamini and Smriti Mandhana shared a 76-run opening stand. Mandhana lead the innings with a half-century. However it was Kate Cross who turned things around bagging three of the four wickets to fall. Read more about Smriti’s knock here

India’s fortunes could revolve around the experienced Mithali Raj who is batting on 20 having faced 69 balls. If India go on to win this, it would  indeed be a memorable one for them. They are playing a Test after eight long years and the team has as many as eight Test debutants.
