England lost the wicket of Lauren Winfield just before tea on Day Two, as rain halted the match of the one-off Test at Wormsley. England are 73 for three and have taken a lead of 51 runs. Catch the live blog of the match here.

Despite losing Heather Knight early in the match, Lauren Winfield and Tammy Beaumont were playing well and going strong. However, England Women lost Tammy in the 11th over, as Ekta Bisht trapped her leg-before wicket. Charlotte Edwards was the next batswoman and together with Lauren they extended the lead.

However, Shikha Pandey finally provided the break, when she trapped Lauren leg-before. With that the match has witnessed 14 leg-before dismissals, three less than the record. Watch the video highlights of Day One here.

Earlier, India were all out for 114, as Jenny Gunn registered her first five-wicket haul in Test cricket and despite losing Heather Knight early in second innings, Tammy Beaumont and Lauren Winfield quickly took the lead as England women were 30 for the loss of 1 wicket at lunch on Day Two. Jhulan Goswami removed Heather with the second ball of the second innings.

India started the day with Jhulan and Nagarajan Niranjana. The duo put up a partnership of 31 runs for the seventh wicket, before Jenny bowled Jhulan and in the process completed her five-wicket haul. Niranjana, who was looking good, was the next batswoman to depart for 27. A good bowling change from Charlotte Edwards proved costly for India, as the bowler removed settled batswoman Niranjana.

Sonia Odedra picked up her first wicket as she removed Shikha Pandey for a leg-before wicket. India were soon dismissed for 114, with a lead of 22 runs. Earlier, on Day One, India women on Wednesday shot out England for a paltry 92 before the hosts hit back strongly, reducing the visitors to 71 for six in 34 overs on Day One of the one-off Test at Wormsley.

Medium pacer Nagarajan Niranjana was the wrecker-in-chief, returning impressive figures of four for 19, after the Indian skipper Mithali Raj elected to field at Sir Paul Getty’s Ground.

Shubhlakshmi Sharma picked up two wickets while there was one each for pace spearhead Jhulan Goswami, Shikha Pandey and Ekta Bisht. The experienced Sarah Taylor top-scored for England with a 42-ball 30, while skipper Charlotte Edwards (4) could not do much with the willow.

Brief scores:

England Women 92 and 73 for 3 (Lauren Winfield 35; Charlotte Edwards 20*; Ekta Bisht 1 for 6) lead India Women 114 (Nagarajan Niranjana 25, Smriti Mandhana 22; Jenny Gunn 5 for 19) by 51 runs.
