Indian women lose by 33 runs to Eng in T20
Chasing 138 for victory, India could manage only 104 for 8 in their stipulated 20 overs at the St Lawrence Ground after inviting the hosts to bat.
India's batting failed miserably with skipper Mithali Raj and wicketkeeper Sulakshana Naik barely managing to reach the 20s.
On the other hand, Sarah Taylor (69 off 49 balls) and opener Laura Marsh (41 off 39) gave England the perfect platform with a 104-run stand for the second wicket in just under 14 overs. Taylor smashed 10 fours while Marsh found the fence four times.
Indian bowlers, led by left-arm spinner Gouher Sultana (2 for 21), did make a comeback after the dismissals of Taylor and Marsh to restrict England to 137 for five, but their batsmen led the side down.
