India went down by 11 runs against England in their Group B clash of the 2023 ICC Women's T20 World Cup. Smriti Mandhana's half-century and a valiant unbeaten 47 from Richa Ghosh went in vain as the women in blue slipped to their first defeat of the World Cup.

Earlier in the day, Renuka Thakur shone with a fiver - the best ever bowling figures for an Indian at the Women's T20 World Cup, even as England posted 151/7 after being asked to bat first.

    Good review from India

    A big LBW shout against Deepti Sharma as she tries a sweep off Ecclestone. It is given out, but the southpaw has gloved it onto her pads.

    Richa won't go down without a fight

    Richa Ghosh is not going to go down without a fight. A slower delivery from Laruen Bell and the batter deposits her over the long-on fence for a six. 

    34 needed off 12

    IND: 118/4 (18)

    43 needed off 18

    Just four runs off the 17th over bowled by Natalie Sciver-Brunt and this contest now seems to be out of India's grasp. Unless, of course, if Richa Ghosh has something else on her mind.

    IND: 109/4 (17)

    Smriti Mandhana, OUT!

    Smriti Mandhana brings up her half century with a six over extra-cover off Sarah Glenn. She tries to go big with the next ball and fails badly. Caught at long-on. No power, timing, or anything in that shot. 


    IND: 105/4 (16)

    India living dangerously here

    Both Smriti and Richa are swinging their hands at everything, but are unable to get proper connection. A lot of aerial balls, but all landing in gaps for now.

    IND: 93/3 (15)

  • 18 Feb 2023 3:43 PM GMT

    Poor running between the wickets

    Smriti smashes one down the ground and just stands to admire the shot. The ball seemed to be travelling to the boundary, but is blocked with an acrobatic dive from Kathrine Sciver-Brunt. Just a single off that.

    India need 65 runs off 6 overs.

    IND: 87/3 (14)

    Twin boundaries for Smriti

    Smriti has been tied on for far too long and now she decides to take on Charlie Dean. The off-spinner dispatched for two boundaries over extra cover with two delightful inside-out shots.

    IND: 84/3 (13)

  • 18 Feb 2023 3:36 PM GMT

    Richa takes on Nat Sciver-Brunt

    No boundaries for more than seven overs? Richa Ghosh says no problem and gets consecutive boundaries off Natalie Sciver-Brunt.

    IND: 75/3 (12)

  • 18 Feb 2023 3:31 PM GMT


    Harmanpreet Kaur looks to take on Sophie Ecclestone and fails badly. Steps down the crease to go straight, but miscues it badly. The ball takes the outer-edge of the bat and goes towards cover, where Alice Capsey holds on despite a fumble. BIG, BIG BLOW TO INDIA!

    Once again the responsibilities fall on the young shoulders of Richa Ghosh to see India through.

    IND: 62/2 (10.2)

  • 18 Feb 2023 3:28 PM GMT

    90 needed off 60 balls

    Halfway through the chase and India now needs 90 of 60 deliveries at a rate of 9 runs per over. They have their two most experienced batters - Harmanpreet Kaur and Smriti Mandhana, in the middle though. Interesting times ahead.

    IND: 62/2 (10)
