ENG vs IND Women Test – Mithali Raj

Deepti Sharma‘s failed slog-sweep at the stroke of lunch on day four was just the kind of cautionary tale Smriti Mandhana had bemoaned a day earlier, after she herself “threw” her wicket away in the same innings, at the same juncture.

Sharma’s wicket in the last over of the opening session triggered a second collapse for India in as many innings, as they plummeted from 171 for 2 to 199 for 7. The cream of the batting gone – captain Mithali Raj and her deputy Harmanpreet Kaur, the Nos. 5 and 6, fell for 4 and 8 respectively – the visitors were staring at being bowled out for a lead inadequate to avert a maiden defeat in Tests in England.
