Openers put India women on brink of win vs England

Wormsley: India openers put the visitors on the brink of a memorable victory against England as they were 69 runs away from winning the one-off Test at Sir Paul Getty's Ground here yesterday.

At the time of going to press, the India women were 112 for three, chasing 188. Thirush Kamini (28) and Smriti Mandhana (51) gave India a flying start before Kate Cross broke the 76-run opening partnership trapping Kamini leg before.

Cross came back to dismiss the well-set Mandhana. Heather Knight then put India under pressure when she dismissed No 3 batswoman Poonam Raut for 12.
