So, that's it from this IndiaWomen's dominance as they level the three-match series with a comfortable eight-wicket win over England Women.

I am AkshayaKrishna Polya, signing off on behalf of my co-commentator Ovaise Shariff, who, alongside our scorer analyst Paras Yadav brought you all the live actions from this fascinating encounter. Stay tuned with our websites and apps for cricket coverage across the globe. For now, it is a ta-ta bye-bye from us!
Smriti Mandhana | Player of the Match: "Yeah, it is good to be among runs. After the defeat in the previous fixture, we wanted to make a good comeback. That is what we did tonight. Happy to contribute to the team for a winning cause as well.

Yeah, it was set up by our bowlers initially. A great job by them. Haha, I feel good batting here. Nothing different in the approach, but yeah, there is a slight adjustment in the shot selection. 

Batting with her (Shafali) is always good. She is a perfect partner. Yeah, overall a great day for us, and I am happy with the win. Looking forward to the next one. Thank you." 
Harmanpreet Kaur | India Women Captain: "It was a very good performance from the girls tonight. They showed great intent. We weren't at our best last game, but here we were, spot on. Yeah, it was a great performance. Our bowlers were good and got valid support from the fielders. Last match we couldn't field well. But, tonight it was a different approach by them.

See, Radha was outstanding. She spoke with me after the last game. And she did make good adjustments tonight. So, a good fielding effort which helped the bowlers to restrict their total for a below-par one was a good positive note.

What to say about Mandhana, she is a great player. She knows how to make a comeback, and that's what she did tonight. Batting with her was a known thing to me. Good won to level the series. Hoping to win the next one too" 
Amy Jones | England Women Captain: "Yeah, I think we were potentially under par. It wasn't easy to bat, but to be honest, India were good tonight. After the start we got, it was brilliant from Kemp and Maia to get us to that total. Hats off for their efforts. As a team, you need to play fearfully and take the attack to your opponents. The result didn't go our way, but I am glad to see the girls fighting. 

She (Kemp) was extraordinary tonight. She has played superbly through the summer. It was a good batting display by her. To be honest, credits to India for the way they batted. Thanks."
Presentations are coming up shortly..
Ovaise: India levels the series 1-1 with a thumping 8-wicket victory!! Mandhana was clinical today and has taken India W over the line with a magnificent 79*!! England were slightly off colour and will be very disappointed with today's loss. 

Earlier in the day, England women won the toss and opted to bat first. Dunkley and Wyatt walked out to open the batting for the hosts, they had come out with positive intent and got 2 boundaries in the very first over. Spin was introduced from the opposite end in the form of Deepti Sharma, and she dismissed Dunkley of the first ball, getting her stumped off a tossed-up delivery. 

Wyatt followed her opening partner in the next over, Alice Capsey walked out into the middle and looked quite solid, disaster struck England in the 3
rd over when Capsey was dismissed after getting run out in trying to run three runs, unaware of the fact that Radha Yadav had made a brilliant save in the deep. England W at this point was 16-3, looking down the barrel. 

Smith and Jones steadied the ship and just went, things started to look good from England W, they lost Smith, who was dismissed by Rana for 16!! Amy Jones too fell for 17, and England was in all sorts of bother with the score reading 54-5.  

However, they recovered from this precarious situation, thanks to a wonderful partnership between Kemp and Bouchier. England made their way to 142, which was probably slightly under par, but England W would have taken it after the early collapse. 

India had their work cut off after the Indian opening pair of Smriti Mandhana, and Shafali Verma took them off to a flyer, Lauren Bell and Freya Davies opened the bowling for the host and were slightly wayward today, the pair of Verma and Mandhana took full toll of this and made use of the power play extremely well!! Verma was dismissed on the last ball of the powerplay by Sophie Ecclestone on 20 of 17! 

Hemalatha joined Mandhana in the middle, and she got off to a decent start, but her innings was cut short by Davies. India at this point, was in a dominant position with 77-2 on the board in 8.4 overs. Skipper Harmanpreet joined a well-settled Mandhana who was batting like a dream, Smriti got past her 50 and changed gears, Harman too joined the party and took India over the line with 4.4 overs still remaining in the game!!  

The England W bowlers got their plans wrong today, their exclusion was not up to the mark and dew didn't help them either!! The bowlers found it hard to grip the ball towards the latter half of the second innings. Sophie Ecclestone was the pick of the bowlers with figures of 3-22-1, Freya Davies picked up a wicket too, but the rest of the bowlers went wicketless and very expensive!! 

India W win the match by 8 wickets, and the series is levelled up nicely!! All the focus moves to the 3rd T20I now.. 

16.4 F Davies to S Mandhana
4 FOURR!!! INDIA WIN BY EIGHT WICKETS! Back-to-back boundaries to finish the game and level the series at 1-1! Fuller length delivery and outside the off. Just a perfect delivery for Mandhana to finish the job. She is on the front foot getting under the ball and lofting it up and over the fielder at mid off for a boundary to seal the deal for India. A trademark lofted off drive by Smriti Mandhana to win it for India
16.3 F Davies to S Mandhana
4 FREE HIT!! FOURRR!!! Back of the hand slower ball, goes wrong again, easy picking for a well-settled Mandhana!! Probably the wrong option by Davies to ret the back of the hand slower ball when there is so much dew!! Exceptional batting performance by Mandhana!! She was on a cruise more through out and has almost taken India over the line comfortably. 
That's a no ball for height!
16.3 F Davies to H Kaur
1nb HIGH FULL TOSS!!! Lots of dew out in the fielder, the bowlers are struggling to grip the ball!! NO BALL given!! Free hit coming up!! Kaur pulls this away for a single towards the deep mid wicket region. 
16.2 F Davies to S Mandhana
1 Full and on the stumps, Mandhana works it away for a single.
16.1 F Davies to S Mandhana
4 FOURRRR!!! POOR BALL!! Full toss drifting way down the leg side, attempted slower yorker which goes horribly wrong and Mandhana deposits it away towards the fine leg boundary line. Mandhana can put these ball away in her dreams as well. 
Now, just 12 are needed off the last four overs for India! Have been a dominance performance throughout the game by the Women in Blue.
