INDW vs. ENGW: Four Indian players hit half-centuries to lead their team to the second-highest score in the history of a women’s Test match in a single day.

India women vs. England women:

On the opening day of the one-off Test at the Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy in Navi Mumbai on Thursday, December 14, the Harmanpreet Kaur-led Indian squad displayed their batting prowess by amassing an enormous total of 410/7 against England.

In a single day of a women’s Test match, India achieved the second-highest total ever achieved by a single side when four players struck half-centuries.

After choosing to bat first, the Women in Blue had a dismal start to their innings as they lost both of their openers cheaply.

India appeared to be struggling at 47/2 when Smriti Mandhana scored just 17 runs and Shafali Verma was dismissed for 19 runs. Shubha Satheesh and Jemimah Rodrigues then joined each other in the middle.

Notably, both were making their first Test appearances for India and took advantage of the confidence the team management placed in them.

The pair gave the England bowlers a serious fight as they forged an incredible 115-run partnership for the third wicket.

Before Sophie Ecclestone dismissed Satheesh for 69 runs in 76 balls, both batsmen smashed their half-centuries.

Together with captain Harmanpreet Kaur, Jemimah scored a few more runs before Lauren Bell bowled her out for 68 runs.

Captain Harmanpreet was also in fine form, but she was run out for 49 runs in 81 deliveries with the assistance of six fours, meaning she was just one run short of a half-century.

Before Charlie Dean removed her for 66 runs, Yastika Bhatia had already reached her half-century.

Sneh Rana, another all-round player, soon joined Deepti Sharma in the middle, and the two of them immediately began to rebuild by putting up some fast runs there as well.

Before Rana left for thirty runs, Deepti reached her fifty as the two accumulated 92 runs for the seventh wicket.

With 60 runs under her belt, the star all-rounder is still at the wicket, with Pooja Vastrakar at the other end undefeated for four runs.

Though the day wasn’t very promising for England, Lauren Bell stood out among the bowlers with two wickets at 64 runs.

In the end, Ecclestone, Dean, Kate Cross, and Nat Sciver-Brunt all claimed wickets.

After a lacklustre performance in the Twenty20 International Series, India awarded debut caps to Jemimah Rodrigues, Renuka Singh Thakur, and Shubha Satheesh earlier today. The team is hoping to secure the win in the longest format of the game.
