Smriti Mandhana, Anuja Patil shine as India beat England in Women's T20I Tri-Series

Mar 29:India finally had to something cheer about as they defeated England by eight wickets to record a consolation win in the women's T20 tri-series in Mumbai on Thursday. After bundling out England for a paltry 107, the Indian batswomen overhauled the target with 4.2 overs to spare. Opener Smriti Mandhana continued with her rich vein of form, scoring an unbeaten quick-fire 62 in 41 balls.
The Indian spinners delivered sharing nine wickets after the opposition decided to bat first. Offie Anuja Patil picked up three wickets while Radha Yadav, Deepti Sharma and Poonam Yadav took two wickets each.
The game was a dead rubber as India have already been knocked out of the tournament after losing their first three games, two to Australia and one to England.
The chase began on a quick note with Mandhana striking three boundaries off Katie George in the second over and followed up with two fours in the fourth over.
Mithali Raj (6) and Jemimah Rodrigues (7) fell early. But, Mandhana, who got a life on 13, made most of it and punished the England bowlers. Mandhana, who scored her third fifty of the tournament, hit eight boundaries and a six.
She and skipper Harmanpreet Kaur (20 not out) then ensured that there was no further damage and conjured an unbeaten 60-run third wicket stand to romp the side home.
Earlier, Indian spinners finally found the much needed rhythm as they scuttled out England for a meagre total. Patil (3-21) was the pick of the bowlers and was superbly aided by left-arm spinner Radha Yadav (2-16), leggie Poonam Yadav (2-17), offie Dipti Sharma (2-24) and pacer Pooja Vastrakar (1-17).
The Indian spinners did not allow the English batters to settle down and picked up wickets at regular intervals on a placid track. Agencies
