ICC Women’s World T20: Twitter Reacts As England Thump India To Enter Final

England thrashed India by eight wickets to set up a mouth-watering clash with Australia in the final of ICC Women’s World T20 final.

India’s hopes of avenging for their loss in the last year’s 50-over World Cup against England ended in a disappointing manner. The reigning ODI world champions looked class apart as they dismantled Harmanpreet Kaur & Co. to storm into the final of the competition.

Harmanpreet Kaur did not hesitate in batting first after winning the toss. And the decision looked like a good one as Taniya Bhatia and Smriti Mandhana gave India a strong start. The two added 43 runs for the first wicket before Sophie Ecclestone sent back Mandhana. The southpaw scored 34 with the help of 5 fours and a six.

10 runs later, Heather Knight accounted for Bhatia to leave India reeling at 53 for 2. However, a 36-run stand between Jemimah Rodrigues and Harmanpreet steadied the ship. But it was just the silence before the storm as the floodgates opened once Rodrigues was run out for run-a-ball 26.

In reply, England were off to a shaky start. They lost both their openers cheaply.  Deepti Sharma accounted for Danielle Wyatt for 8 before Radha Yadav sent back Tammy Beaumont for 1 to reduce England to 24 for 2.

However, Amy Ellen Jones and Natalie Sciver did not let India make further inroads in the game. The two mixed caution with aggression to not only bail England out of trouble but also took them over the line. Both the players scored fine fifties as England chased down the total inside 18 overs.
