India Women beat England in 2nd warm-up tie, Harmanpreet smashes unbeaten 62 from 32 balls

India Women beat England in 2nd warm-up tie, Harmanpreet smashes unbeaten 62 from 32 balls

Georgetown, Nov 8 (UNI) After a win in the first warm-up game against the Windies,

India Women registered another win in their second and final warm-up game.

Playing at at the Guyana National Stadium here, India beat England by 11 runs.

India were powered by captain Harmanpreet Kaur’s blazing 62 not out (32b, 6x4,

3x6). She combined with Deepti Sharma for a sixth-wicket partnership of 54 to

rescue India from a tricky 70 for five.

Poonam Yadav then claimed three wickets to help restrict England to 133 for eight,

Dannielle Wyatt’s 54 (53b, 2x4) going in vain. Radha Yadav and Deepti Sharma took

two wickets each.

India coach Ramesh Powar sounded positive after the team’s second win.

“Where we were three-four months back and where we are now, we are happy what

we are doing. It takes time, I hope they understand this. We try and dominate every

situation, that is what we are looking for,” he said.

“Their spinners out bowled us. They bowled into the wicket and protected the short

boundary. We bowled all the length and got hit, gave the batter a chance to hit over

somebody’s head, which you can’t do in these conditions,” England coach Mark

Robinson told the official ICC website.

Brief scores: India Women 144-6 in 20 overs (Harmanpreet Kaur 62; Heather

Knight 2-9, Anya Shrubsole 2-28) beat England Women 133-8 in 20 overs

(Danielle Wyatt 54; Poonam Yadav 3-20, Radha Yadav 2-21, Deepti Sharma

2-28) by 11 runs.
