The spin duo of Poonam Yadav and Deepti Sharma scripted India’s dramatic comeback with tidy death over spells that helped the visitors level the series with an eight-run win over England in the second women’s T20 here on Sunday. England, who needed 33 runs off 30 balls with six wickets in hand, crumbled under the pressure generated by Indian spinners who were complemented well by their fielders.
Shafali Verma’s 48 off 38 balls had allowed India to post 148 for four after being put in to bat.
Offie Sneh Rana defended 14 runs in the final over to cap off an impressive bowling effort from the spinners.
A few much needed boundaries from Deepti and Sneh Rana got India close to the 150-run mark. India collected 46 runs from the last five overs.
