And that is it from the T20I series between England Women and India Women! The hosts secured a 2-1 series win with three-match ODI series coming our way in a few days. For now, this is me, AkshayaKrishna Polya, signing off on behalf of my co-commentator Arijit Kundu, who, alongside our scorer analyst Paras Yadav brought you all the live coverage from this enthralling fixture. We will meet in the next match. Until then, it is good-bye from us!   
2:25 PM IST| Time for England to lift the trophy. 
Amy Jones (England Women Captain): " Thanks feels very good. Everyone stepped up in time. Yeah, its been very different, quite daunting coming in the first game. We knew what our roles were. And the girls really came in well. She [Alice Capsey] is great, I think, she is so good. She has got al the shots and does it so well. 

Yeah, she has been great. She is a banker for us with the ball and has been sensational as well. Obviously we're gonna go the same. in the second game, we were a bit hard at the game. Thanks."
Harmanpreet Kaur (India Women Captain): "I think we were 20 runs short today, and credits to the bowlers because of which we were in the game. Yes, we want to have characters like that.

 Also, Richa batted well today. Because of her's knock, we got to the total for which we could fight. In any format of cricket, you need to have a decent number of total. We need big partnerships, and any big partnership will always give us a good total to defend."
Sophia Dunkley (Player of the Summer and Series): "Yeah, it has been great for me throughout the series. Playing for England is a great thing, and with the bunch of players I am playing with is also amazing. Our side is well grouped, whether it is on field or off the field.

See, batting with Danni (Wyatt) is a happy thing because she compliments me well. The task is to soak the pressure well, and the team is doing great on these terms."
The Player of the series is also Sophia Dunkley.
The Player of the Summer is Sophia Dunkley
Sophie Ecclestone (Player of the Match): " Nice to take the catch (to dismiss Smriti Mandhana) and do it neatly at the start. [Katherine Brunt]is not here at the moment, and therefore there is change of roles.

Obviously, it was a great performance from the team. Yeah, I think I have enjoyed the vice-captaincy role. Yeah, I think it's quite nice, obviously, however, the responsibility it gets. How it batsmen or gets with the bowl."
Player of the match: Sophie Ecclestone
2:15 AM IST| Time for the presentation ceremony...
Akshaya: 2:01 AM IST | A dominant performance by England Women sealed the series as they beat India Women by a margin of seven wickets with ten balls remaining! Three T20Is and two teams which chased won the games effortlessly. England Women won the series 2-1!

Earlier, England Women skipper Amy Jones won the third straight toss and opted to bowl first. Smriti Mandhana and Shafali Verma came out to bat for India Women. But, unlike the previous match, India got off to a horrible start. Women in Blue lost six wickets for just 52 runs, and to add insult to the injury, English bowlers ran through the over rate.

It was Deepti Sharma and Richa Ghosh who gave some respect to the scoreboard as they added 23 runs for the seventh wicket. Deepti (24 off 25) had an awful brain fade moment in the field as she was out stumped in the bowling of Sophie Ecclestone in the 17th over.

Richa (33 off 22) and Pooja Vastrakar played a few good shots towards the end as they took the score beyond the hundred-run mark. The duo added a partnership of 28-runs for the eighth wicket before Ghosh was trapped dead plumb by the willy left-arm spinner in the 19th over.

Pooja (19* off 11) and Radha Yadav (5* off 2) played a couple of excellent shots in the last over to push India Women to a total of 122/8 in their allotted 20 overs.

For the hosts, it was the World Number One T20I bowler, Sophie Ecclestone, with the figures of 4-0-25-3, who was the best bowler. Sarah Glenn scalped a couple while Bryony Smith, Freya Davies, and Issy Wong took a wicket each.

Chasing a well below par total, England Women openers Sophia Dunkley and Danielle Wyatt gave the team a great start as they added 70 runs for the first wicket. Both played some good shots, but they were also aided by some poor bit of fielding by the visitors. It looked like an exact replay of the first T20I! 

Sneh Rana, in the 10th over, accounted for the dismissal of Danni Wyatt as the latter holed out at long on for a score of 22 from 23 deliveries. Dunkley, who was cruising to her half-century, fell one run short of the milestone as Pooja Vastrakar's back-of-a-length delivery castled her stumps. But she was in good touch before walking back frustratingly at her personal score of 49 from 44 deliveries.

Amy Jones' (3 off 5) bad patch continued as she failed to play till the end, losing her stumps to Radha Yadav in the 13th over. It seemed like there was a chance for India's comeback, but Alice Capsey (38* off 24) and Bryony Smith (13* off 14) didn't allow any doors for it to happen.

The duo added 47 runs for the unbeaten fourth wicket and sealed the deal for England Women in the 19th over bowled by Deepti Sharma. Deepti bowled two loose deliveries, which Capsey played away behind the square on the leg side for boundaries to finish the series in favour of the hosts!

Stay tuned as we will be back with the presentations!
18.2 D Sharma to A Capsey
4 FOURRRRRRR!!! And there you go Capsey brooms it around and gets the winning runs for England Women!! England has clinched the series and some stealthy performances from the young bloods have made it possible against a sloppy Indian side. Fuller one from the bowler, with a flatter trajectory, near the off and Capsey prods forward and drops her shoulders around the cork with the sweeping effect to fetch the winning runs in the form of a handy boundary. The fielders were brought inside the circle for this ball and therefore the vacant region in the deep was created.
18.1 D Sharma to A Capsey
4 FOURRRRRR!!!!! A full toss towards the leg stump line and Capsey just pulls this one down the deep backward square leg region for a boundary this time. Nothing delivery from the bowler on this occasion and it had to be punished hard. One simply can't expect such poor delivery from an experienced one at this situation!!
Deepti is back for her last over. 5 runs needed from 12 balls.

17.6 P Vastrakar to B Smith
2 Same line and length from the bowler and Smith has more muscle than Capsey and therefore thunders it down towards the wide of the long off region. The duo scampers hard and gets a double.
17.5 P Vastrakar to A Capsey
1 Full and wide, coming wide of the popping crease as well. Capsey looks to come down and drills it down the ground for a single to long off.
17.4 P Vastrakar to A Capsey
0 Whoaaa!! Exceptional bowling from Pooja this time. Goes further wide and angling away and the batter fails to time it again. The bowler chases the ball with the follow through and restricts any run.
17.3 P Vastrakar to A Capsey
0 Once again the same plan to go away from the right hander and the batter looks to drill across the line and ends up mistiming it around ther turf.
