    And there you go, Danielle Wyatt has single-handedly pocketed a second win for England Women with her powerful knock of 124. She did receive some support from Tammy Beaumont, but this was a one woman show indeed. England Women have won by 7 wickets.

    While Wyatt still remains on the crease and brought up her second T20I century, Beaumont has been dismissed by Deepti Sharma. England are just 42 runs away from victory from 33 balls. Can India finish this in a thrilling fashion?

    Phew. Finally, a breakthrough and Jhulan does it again. Bryony Smith goes for 15. However, Wyatt is still around in thick of things. And now Beaumont has come to support the opener. England Women 66/1, need 132 to win

    Looks like England Women are taking the Indian bowlers for a ride. They are off to a blistering start as well, despite India Women posting the second highest T20I total on board. England 45/0, need 154 to win

    And the same old story continues. With fall of Mandhana the middle and top-order crumbled as well. Mithali scored a gritty fifty and was gone. Veda Krishnamurthy too could not make the most of the opportunity. Harmanpreet kept her calm and took India to their highest T20I score but perished for 30. All down to newbie Jemimah and Pooja Vastrakar now. India Women 179/4 after 19 overs

    Sciver, finally hands the breakthrough. But what a glorious innings from Mandhana. She came and conquered. Almost got the work done for India here. She goes for 76. India Women 129/1 after 13 overs

  • 10:49 AM IST

    It is already 119 runs on board after 12 overs and Mithali, Mandhana seem to find no respite. England bowlers are being thrashed with sixes and fours.

    Fifty for Mandhana. And she literally cruised to it. That was quick. 8 fours and 2 sixes, Mandhana is here to stay. India Women 88/0 after 9 overs

  • 10:28 AM IST

    And that 50 came too soon for India Women. Mandhana look unstoppable already. Another expensive over, this time from Natalie Sciver. Meanwhile, it is Jenny Gunn’s 100th T20I, Isa Guha gave her the cap. On the other hand, Mandhana is busy nearing her fifty. India Women 57/0 after 6.4 overs

  • 10:19 AM IST

    Phew. What a start! Mandhana has just accelerated the innings after Mithali gave a gentle push. 20 runs coming from Katie George’s over. India Women on a roll here at 36/0 after 4 overs

Good Afternoon/Morning! Hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s live cricket blog of the 3rd T20I between India Women and England Women. The Australia, England and India T20I tri series is scheduled to be played at the Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai. Nothing has gone the Indian Eves way since the three-match ODI series against Australia. They lost the opening T20I tri-series match against Australia as well. India will need to improve in all departments in order to avoid another 6-wicket defeat as witnessed against Australia. 

India’s top and middle order have not been consistent. Experienced players like Veda Krishnamurthy, Mithali Raj and skipper Harmanpreet Kaur have been unable to produced match-winning knocks. If there is one player who has continued her good run is Smriti Mandhana. Mandhana notched up fifty against Australia to post a competitive total that ultimately the efforts went in vain. Amongst the bowlers, Jhulan Goswami is back in thick of action and ran through the Australian top-order but found no support from Shikha Pandey and Rumeli Dhar.

England, on the other hand, enter the contest on the back of 8-wicket win against Australia. Where India will aim to stay alive in the series, England would look to continue their winning momentum.
