As it happened:

England batted first and had a disastrous start. The English team lost three wickets inside 6 overs in the opening spell of Goswami and Pandey. Amy Ellen Jones (3), Sarah Taylor (1), Heather Knight (2) fell soon and England was reduced to 14-3.

It was the partnership of Tammy Beaumont and Natalie Sciver, first, and Beaumont and Lauren Winfield later that gave the visitors a respectable total. Beaumont made 20 (42), Winfield made 28 (49) and Sciver was the highest run scorer for England and was the last wicket to fall.

Raj remained not out on 47 off 63 balls including 8 fours. For England, Anya Shrubsole picked up 2 wickets while Georgia Elwiss claimed a wicket.
