India were bowled out for 169 with Deepti Sharma (68 not out) and Smriti Mandhana (50) scoring half-centuries. The Indian bowlers made England batters sweat in a low-scoring affair. They managed to pick wickets at regular intervals, which never allowed England to settle down. 

Pacer Renuka Singh Thakur (3-22) and left-arm spinner Rajeshwari Gayakwad (2-23) were the pick of the bowlers. Goswami claimed the wicket of Alice Capsey for five.  
England were 104-8 in 30 overs at the time of going to press.
