"89 Wyatt" power crushes India as women lose T20I series to England; fourth on trot
- United Kingdom
Opener Danni Wyatt smashed an unbeaten 89 off only 56 balls to overshadow an elegant 70 by Smriti Mandhana as England claimed an easy eight-wicket victory over India Women in the third T20 International to wrap up the series 2-1 here.
Having already lost the three-match WODI series by the same margin, the Indian women under Mithali Raj and Harmanpreet Kaur have now lost four successive white-ball series with two at home against South Africa.
She pulled the pacers effortlessly, played some lovely lofted inside out shot off spinners while adding 68 runs with skipper Harmanpreet (36 off 26 balls), who looked in some sort of form.
Young Richa Ghosh smashed four boundaries towards the end in her 13-ball-20 which took the score past the 150-run mark.
She got fantastic support from ICC's No.1 ranked all-rounder Nat Sciver, who chipped in with a 42 off 36 balls after having bowled economically to take 1 for 16 in four overs.
In fact, Wyatt came out of her crease to counter Poonam's loopy slow deliveries smashing her all over the park.
The chase became a cakewalk in 18.4 overs.
They will next be travelling to Australia and the tour also features their maiden day-night Test.
