India Women 333/5 (50 ov)
Result - India Women won by 88 runs
Harmanpreet Kaur's 143 not out led India to a series win in the second Royal London International at Canterbury.
After putting India into bat, England's bowlers kept things tight initially before Kaur, Harleen Doel (58) and Smriti Mandhana (40) took India to the very imposing total of 333-5.
It was always going to be tough for England to chase down such a big total, and while there were bright moments in the shape of Danni Wyatt (65), Alice Capsey (39) and Amy Jones (39) it proved too much for the hosts to overcome. They were bowled out for 245, unable to level the series.
The two sides meet again at Lord's this Saturday for the series close, with two ICC Women's Championship points up for grabs.
