England's women win India series
Tuesday 09 March 2010
England's women clinched victory in the Twenty20 series against India with a five-wicket win in the third match in Mumbai yesterday, sealing a 2-1 series triumph.
India, put in to bat, managed 125 for 4 but saw it overhauled with four balls remaining.
The Indian wickets were shared between Katherine Brunt, Danielle Hazell, Nicky Shaw and Laura Marsh, leaving England needing a little more than a run a ball to wrap up the series.
The tourists, bowled out for 96 on Saturday, were more impressive this time around.
The policy of moving some big-hitters higher up the order paid off as Marsh hit 47 from 53 balls to top score in the match.
After Beth Morgan had weighed in with 28 off 21 balls, Jenny Gunn and Marsh teamed up and the latter hit the winning runs with her fifth boundary of the contest.
Edwards said: "It's great to finish the tour on a real high. Our priority was to win this series.
"We have all worked hard as a team throughout the tour and it's been great to see some of the younger girls getting international experience and making the most of their opportunities.
"I'm looking forward to defending our Twenty20 title in the West Indies."
