Smriti Mandhana was the star of the Indian innings once again. Mithali Raj did her part as well to help India to a formidable 198, India's highest total in T20I. But with the England opener Danielle Wyatt in such form scoring her second T20I century dashed the Indian hopes. to be honest there was very little India could have done to prevent her from scoring.

India will be up against Australia tomorrow with the toss taking place at 9:30. We will be here with the live coverage and our correspondent at Brabourne stadium in CCI. So do join us for the match. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday. Cya later.

Danielle Wyatt, Player of the Match: This knock is quite special. It was nice to be there. Worked really hard for this. Yeah, I thought fitness was a big part to play such an innings. I am trying to keep going.

Heather Knight, England captain: What a game of cricket. Brilliant pitch for T20 cricket. Getting those wickets in middle was very pleasing. Danny started off really well, she plays smart cricket getting her second T20I hundred. As a bowling there hardly any margin for error. Smriti batted really well she came out positively.

13:03 (IST)

Harmanpreet Kaur, India captain:  When we score 198 we were looking confident. We need to bowl dot balls. We just want to play aggressive cricket. Wicket was not easy to bat in the first innings. As a bowling unit we need to work on.  We are doing well and definitely work on our game.  

12:58 (IST)

Pretty convincing win for England, the veritable stroll in the park. It should be a tough loss to take for India, especially after the huge total they posted. Lots of questions for India to ponder over.

England win by 7-wickets!

England complete a record chase to win their second match of the tri-series. Harmanpreet Kaur and Co ran into a belligerent Danielle Wyatt, who simply took the game away from India. Good contribution by Beaumount.

India must be disappointed with their second loss of the series, especially after scoring close to 200 in the first innings.

12:53 (IST)

After 18 overs, England 195/3 (Nat Sciver 10, Heather Knight 6)

The visiting side has made giant strides to get one shot away from India's first innings score. Four more runs needed with 12 deliveries left in the innings.

India vs England, 3rd T20I, Latest update: England complete a record chase to win their second match of the tri-series. Harmanpreet Kaur and Co ran into a belligerent Danielle Wyatt, who simply took the game away from India.

Preview: Easily beaten in the tournament opener by Australia, India will hope for a reversal in fortune when they take on England in the women's T20 triangular series.

The hosts will need to improve in all three departments if they are to avoid a repeat of the six-wicket defeat to the Aussies at the Brabourne Stadium. India's middle and lower middle order have not been among the runs and that is an area of concern for the team management.

The likes of Veda Krishnamurthy, Harmapreet Kaur, Mithali Raj — who have so much potential and experience — would certainly be eyeing a better show on a track where the ball is expected to come on to the bat nicely.

If Mithali and Harmanpreet fire in unison they can demoralise even the strong English attack. Even Mumbai girl Jemmimah Rodrigues needs to pull her socks up and play to her potential.

Only the form of vice-captain Smriti Mandhana would have satisfied coach Tushar Arothe, but the left-handed batswoman too needs to learn from her past mistakes and stay till the end.

Apart from Smriti, Anuja Patil has been getting some runs, and the team could mull sending her up the order.

Mandhana made a brisk 67 in the game against Australia but admitted that she threw her wicket way. If India want to pile up runs on the board, her role will be crucial again.

On the bowling front, veteran seamer Jhulan Goswami ran though the Australian top-order without getting adequate support from others, including Shikha Pandey and Rumeli Dhar.

Tomorrow, Pandey and Dhar will need to chip in with their effective bowling to restrict England. The spinners – Poonam Yadav and Deepti Sharma – also need to take up responsibility and deliver.

England did play spin well in their win against the Aussies yesterday, so Sharma and Yadav will have to come up with something different to stop them.

England have defeated Australia by eight wickets and will look to continue their winning streak.

All-rounder Netlie Sciver shone with both bat and ball and she would be eyeing another stellar performance, and so would Tamsin Beaumont.

England pacers and spinners have also been among the wickets.

While a win for India will bring them back in contention for a place in the final, another defeat will surely affect their morale, besides making their task even more difficult.

Teams (from):

India: Harmanpreet Kaur (captain), Smriti Mandhana, Mithali Raj, Veda Krishnamurthy, Jemimah Rodrigues, Anuja Patil, Deepti Sharma, Taniya Bhatia, Poonam Yadav, Jhulan Goswami, Shikha Pandey, Pooja Vastrakar, Rumeli Dhar, Mona Meshram, Radha Yadav.

England: Heather Knight (captain), Tamsin Beaumont, Kate Cross, Alice Davidson-Richards, Sophie Ecclestone, Tash Farrant, Katie George, Jenny Gunn, Alex Hartley, Daniellie Hazell, Amy Jones, Anya Shrubsole, Natlie Sciver, Fran Wilson, Danni Wyatt.
