England beat India to seal multi-format series win

England beat India by eight wickets in third women’s T20 to seal multi-format series win as Danni Wyatt goes from zero to hero after smashing unbeaten 89 from 56 balls

  • England chased down India’s target of 154 in style to win multi-format series
  • Danni Wyatt propelled England to victory with an unbeaten 89 from 56 balls
  • Wyatt dominated a stand of 112 with Nat Sciver to seal the eight-wicket victory 

Danni Wyatt propelled England to victory in their multi-format series against India at Chelmsford on Wednesday night and perhaps saved her international career.

Wyatt, dropped from the one-day series and poor in the first two T20 internationals, smashed an unbeaten 89 and dominated a stand of 112 with Nat Sciver that gave England an eight-wicket win with eight balls to spare in the final short-form match.

That gave them a 10-6 triumph in the three-pronged series, with England winning both the one-day and T20 series 2-1 after a drawn Test.

India owed what looked like a below par 153 for six to a hard-hitting 70 from Smriti Mandhana. 

But their hopes of posting a challenging target disappeared with her when Sciver took a good catch to give Katherine Brunt her second wicket.

Brunt had earlier bowled teenage sensation Shafali Verma for a duck but the England bowling honours went to Sophie Ecclestone, who took three for 35.
