Indian Women in Blue beat England in second one-day match
Following her side's 88-run win over England in the second ODI, Indian skipper Harmanpreet Kaur said that her partnership with Harleen Deol was important.
Captain Harmanpreet Kaur's explosive unbeaten hundred and brilliant spell from pacer Renuka Singh helped an all-round India defeat England by 88 runs in the second ODI of the three-match series at Canterbury to clinch the series on September 21.
"When we came here, that was the goal (to win the series). Was a crucial win today as everybody stepped up. I always enjoy leadership as I am always in the game and it feels good. When I was batting, during the first 50 runs, it was not all that easy. I just took my time and the partnership with Harleen was important. Just gave freedom to myself later as I was well set," said Harmanpreet during a post-match presentation.
With this victory, India now has an unassailable 2-0 win in the series.
In the first innings, India registered a massive 333/5 in 50 overs, their highest total on English soil.
In chase of 334, pacer Renuka Singh (4/57) dismantled English top order.
This is India women's first ODI series win on English soil since 1999.
Harmanpreet's explosive knock earned her the 'Player of the Match' award.
The third and final ODI will be played at Lord's on September 24.
