Rain or no rain, India women have been a step behind their English counterparts in the white-ball. In the first T20I, despite picking wickets at regular intervals, a joint-fastest half-century from Nat Sciver, well assisted by Amy Jones set up a record chase for India.
India lost Shafali Varma early. Though Smriti Mandhana hung around for a bit but India lost her and the captain Harmanpreet Kaur before rain intervened giving the hosts a victory by DLS method.
From the country ground in Northampton, the series will move to the county ground at Hove.
