Raj leads India to victory over England
India were struggling in their chase of 220 as the run-rate climbed on a slow pitch and needed 46 runs from the final 36 balls.
However, on the day she became the leading run-scorer in Women’s international cricket, Raj anchored the innings with 75 from 86 balls and Sneh Rana’s quick-fire 22 put India on top, leaving them needing just six runs from the final over.
This was the first time England had batted first in the ODI series and they struggled to get to grips with the pace of the pitch and the timing of their innings.
England: 219 in 47 overs (Sciver 49, Deepti 3/47)
India: 220/6 in 46.3 overs (Raj 75 n.o, Mandhana 49, Rana 22, Ecclestone 2/36). (BBC)
