India were pretty much in the hunt in a tricky chase, thanks to opener Shafali Verma (52) and captain Harmanpreet Kaur’s (37) third-wicket stand of 73. But the hosts started losing the plot once pacer Nicola Carey dismissed Shafali. There was no way back for India once Megan Schutt sent Harmanpreet back in the 17th over.
