Live Score updates England Women vs India Women second ODI at Taunton: Deepti Sharma returns. Just three runs off it with Dunkley retaining strike with a single.

Preview, 2nd ODI: India suffered a big loss in the first ODI against England, losing the series opener by eight wickets. Mithali Raj and her team will aiming comeback in the second game on Wednesday in order to level the series and keep it alive.

The India captain played well in the first game but it was not enough to take her side home as India struggled to get to a decent total. The snail-paced India innings, in fact, cost them the game, England racing to the target in just under 35 overs with plenty of wickets in hand.

Punam Raut and Raj played too many dots in the middle overs in their response to loss of early wickets. They had steadied Indian innings after early dismissals of openers Smriti Mandhana and Shafali Verma but the pace of the innings and failure of other batters meant India finished with only 201 on the board at the end of the allotted 50 overs.
