LIVE Score, England vs India, 2nd ODI at Taunton: Hill, Beaumont begin hosts' chase of 222
After 3 overs, ENGW 13/0 (Winfield Hill 4, Beaumont 9)
Goswami is back. She begins by going down the leg as Beaumont whips off the pads to guide the ball to the fine leg fielder for two runs. Tammy later takes advantage of Jhulan's extra width to drive through covers for a four. Eight off it.
FOUR! Beaumont with her first boundary, makes use of this wider ball from Jhulan to guide the ball through covers.
After 2 overs, ENGW 5/0 (Winfield Hill 4, Beaumont 1)
Shikha Pandey into the attack now. She appeals for an LBW against Beaumont, but the umpire's hardly interested. There was a bit of an in-swing movement, height could have been an issue. Beaumont is off the mark with a single. Just one off it.
After 1 over, ENGW 4/0 (Winfield Hill 4, Beaumont 0)
Jhulan Goswami with the first over of the chase. Winfield Hill with a boundary through the gap at cover to get England going. Just four off the over.
FOUR! Lovely drive through the off side from Winfield Hill for the first boundary of the innings.
Right. Time for England's chase of 222. Indian bowlers need to do well in order to successfully defend this and stay alive in the series. Tammy Beaumont and Lauren Winfield Hill make way to the middle for the chase. The commentators on air say Harmanpreet Kaur has stepped in as skipper for Mithali for now. Jhulan Goswami to begin proceedings.
After 50 overs, INDW 22 (Jhulan 20)
Ecclestone with the final over of the innings. Four runs off the over, including the wicket of Yadav, who departed on the final ball of the innings as India got bundled out for 221. Once again, India with a below par total on the board. Can the bowlers conjure up something magical now? Stay tuned to find out.
OUT! Yadav charges down the track, gets beaten and the ball rattles the stumps, it was much quicker from Ecclestone. Poonam Yadav b Ecclestone 10(15)
After 49 overs, INDW 217/9 (Jhulan 19, Yadav 7)
Brunt continues. Two fours off the over, one through byes and another from the blade of Goswami, who nailed the pull shot. The third delivery was bowled down leg and Jhulan sneaked a double as well. A four to end the over from Goswami’s blade, thanks to an outside edge. 18 runs off the over. Welcome runs for India. They’ll need as many as they can get here, especially on a batting pitch
FOUR! Goswami looks to slap it towards the off side, gets an outside edge and the ball races away towards the third man fence.
FOUR! Two in two! Short from Brunt, Goswami rocks back and pulls it behind square.
FOUR! Slower one, back of the hand delivery from Brunt. Swing and a miss for Goswami, the ball evades everyone and races away to the fence.
After 48 overs, INDW 199/9 (Jhulan 10, Yadav 6)
Ecclestone continues as Yadav joins Goswami at the crease after the big wicket of Mithali. Poonam cuts the third delivery and collects a four there, the only runs in the over.
FOUR! Short from Ecclestone, Yadav rocks back and cuts it past point for a boundary.
After 47 overs, INDW 195/9 (Jhulan 10, Yadav 2)
Brunt continues. Goswami attemps to take a triple after a misfield by Dunkley in deep on the leg side. Nevertheless, Dunkley goes back, saves the boundary, and throws the ball promptly towards Jones, the wicketkeeper, who dislodges the stumps in a jiffy as Mithali finds herself short of the crease. Big loss for India, five runs and a wicket in the over.
OUT! Huge wicket here. Mithali departs for 69, played over 90 deliveries and naturally, wasn’t as quick between the wickets and wicketkeeper Jones ran her out. Good throw and by Dunkley in the deep too. How far can India stretch here? Mithali run out (Sophia Dunkley/Jones) 59(92)
FOUR! Width from Sciver and Goswami cuts it through point. Sloppy fielding by Beaumont at point.
After 45 overs, INDW 183/8 (Jhulan 1, Raj 58)
Brunt continues. England have a chance of bowling out India under their quota of 50 overs here. India in a precarious position. Mithali, the key for them here as the set batter and the only recognised one too. Two runs off the over.
After 44 overs, INDW 181/8 (Jhulan 0, Raj 57)
Sciver continues. Pandey edges the fifth delivery into the wicketkeeper’s gloves as India lose their eighth wicket. Mithali would want to take most of the strike here. Two runs and a wicket off the over.
OUT! Another edge and gone! Pandey looking to drive it towards the leg side, but she edges it straight into the wicketkeeper’s gloves. Shikha Pandey c Jones b Sciver 2(7)
After 43 overs, INDW 179/6 (Pandey 1, Raj 56)
Ecclestone continues. Gets rid of Bhatia, who edges the second delivery to the wicketkeeper while going for the cut shot. Pandey joins Mithali at the crease after Bhatia’s departure. Two runs off the over.
OUT! Bhatia goes deep in the crease for the cut, but it was too close to cut. The wicketkeeper-batswoman edges it into the wicketkeeper’s gloves. Bhatia c Jones b Ecclestone 2(10)
After 42 overs, INDW 177/6 (Bhatia 2, Raj 55)
Sciver returns to the attack. India must try to go at six runs per over here, as the minimum. Three bouncers to Bhatia in the over, who cannot help but leave them. Just two runs off the over.
After 41 overs, INDW 175/6 (Bhatia 1, Raj 54)
Ecclestone returns to the attack. Four runs off the over. This is the last recognised batting pair here and they must look to bat out the full quota.
After 40 overs, INDW 171/5 (Bhatia 1, Raj 51)
Cross picks up her fifth wicket, what a day she’s having. This time, it’s Rana, who got a leading edge and Knight completed a catch at cover, albeit it slipped once from her hands. Mithali, meanwhile, completes her fifty in the over. Three runs off the over.
50! Second fifty on the trot for Mithali. Much quicker than the last time. Six fours from her blade so far. But India would want her to finish the innings in style, as the well set batter.
OUT! Five-wicket haul for Kate Cross. Rana looks to heave it towards the leg side, gets a leading edge and Knight completes the catch after a juggle at cover. Sneh Rana c Knight b Kate Cross 5(7)
After 39 overs, INDW 168/5 (Rana 5, Raj 49)
Shrubsole into her eighth over. Rana clears the mid on fielder off the third to collect a four. India need more of those. Six runs off the over, including a wide and a leg bye run.
FOUR! Rana clears her front leg and lofts it just over mid on for a boundary. Positive intent from her.
After 38 overs, INDW 162/5 (Rana 1 , Raj 49)
Cross continues. And she picks up her fourth wicket, removing Deepti, who holes out Dunkley at square leg. Deepti was timing the ball really well. Besides, she’s also someone who can score at a quick pace. Will be interesting to see how India respond, with a new batter, Rana, and Mithali, the anchor, at the crease. Two runs and a wicket off the over, brilliant stuff from Cross.
OUT! Cross picks up her fourth wicket in the form of Deepti, who perishes after holing out to Dunkley at deep square leg. Deepti Sharma c Sophia Dunkley b Kate Cross 5(12)
After 37 overs, INDW 160/4 (Deepti 5, Raj 48)

After 36 overs, INDW 153/4 (Deepti 0, Raj 48)
Cross continues. Bowls a no ball off the fourth but Mithali fails to capitalise on the free hit as Cross surprises the Indian skipper with a well-directed bouncer, which hits Mithali on the shoulder and then on the helmet. As per concussion protocols, Mithali gets a look in from the physio. But she seems good to continue. Three runs off the over, a no ball, a leg bye and a run off the bat there.
After 35 overs, INDW 150/4 (Deepti 0, Raj 47)
Shrubsole continues. Just when a partnership was flourishing for India, India lost Harmanpreet. New batter at the crease in the form of Deepti. India must not let England get on top here. Mithali, meanwhile, is inching closer to her half century, and at a quicker pace than the last ODI. Five runs off the over, including a boundary.
FOUR! Drifting on the pads and Mithali tickles it towards fine leg for a boundary.
After 34 overs, INDW 145/4 (Deepti 0, Raj 42)
Cross returns to the attack. Mithali cuts the first delivery through point for a four, thanks to some poor fielding by Dunkley in the deep. The seamer gets rid of Harmanpreet, who gets a leading edge and hands a simple catch to Cross. Five runs and a wicket off the over.
OUT! Harmanpreet looks to slog it towards the leg side, gets a leading edge and the ball goes high in the air. Cross, the bowler, calls well and completes the catch too. Kaur c and b Kate Cross 19(39)
FOUR! Mithali cuts it through point. Sloppy fielding by Dunkley in the deep.
After 33 overs, INDW 140/3 (Harmanpreet 19, Raj 37)
Brunt continues. Mithali nearly plays onto the stumps while attempting a cut off the second. Just one off the over. The partnership is worth 63 at the end of the over.
After 32 overs, INDW 139/3 (Harmanpreet 19, Raj 36)
Five runs off Glenn’s over, with Mithali collecting a four off the first. India picking their bowlers wisely. Still, the rotation of strike can be much better.
FOUR! Tossed up delivery from Glenn, Mithali charges down the wicket and whacks it straight past the bowler, who gets her hand to it. Really tough chance there. It was fiercely hit.
After 31 overs, INDW 134/3 (Harmanpreet 19, Raj 31)
Brunt continues. Tests Mithali with two consecutive bouncers off the third and fourth, the Indian skipper opts to leave them both. Three singles in the over.
After 30 overs, INDW 131/3 (Harmanpreet 18, Raj 25)
Glenn continues. Concedes a boundary off the first, through byes, as Mithali attempts a sweep. Seven runs off the over.
FOUR! Byes! Down the leg side from Glenn, poor line, and it evades the wicketkeeper as Mithali attemps the sweep.
After 29 overs, INDW 124/3 (Harmanpreet 17, Raj 24)
Brunt returns to the attack. Harmanpreet usually takes her time before exploding in the ODIs, but the series is on the line. With an anchor (Mithali) in, she must look to up her scoring rate. Three runs off the over.
After 28 overs, INDW 121/3 (Harmanpreet 16, Raj 22)
Glenn continues. England are a formidable side, especially on home turf, and anything over 250 is a must to make a game out of it for India. Just one run off the over, Glenn learning from her mistakes here.
After 27 overs, INDW 117/3 (Harmanpreet 16, Raj 21)
Sciver continues. Three runs off the over. The current run rate is 4.44. India can definitely do better.
After 26 overs, INDW 117/3 (Harmanpreet 15, Raj 19)
Glenn continues. Harmanpreet employs the paddle sweep off the second and collects a boundary. Glenn bowls down the leg side off the fourth, the ball evades everyone and races away to the fence, 5 wides there. Good over from India’s perspective, 11 runs off it.
FOUR! Once again, Harmanpreet goes for the sweep, but it wasn’t off the bat. 5 wides
Live Score updates England Women vs India Women second ODI at Taunton: Live Score updates England Women vs India Women first ODI at Taunton: Ecclestone with the final over of the innings. Four runs off the over, including the wicket of Yadav, who departed on the final ball of the innings as India got bundled out for 221. Once again, India with a below par total on the board. Can the bowlers conjure up something magical now? Stay tuned to find out.
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.
England's Tammy Beaumont (87 off 87), Natalie Sciver (74 off 74) played in completely contrasting manner as they raced past the total with over 15 overs remaining.
In the second ODI, India need to fix their weakness, which is maintaining a healthy run-rate while batting. Also, the new-ball bowlers are expected to put on a better show.
England Squad: Lauren Winfield Hill, Tammy Beaumont, Heather Knight (c), Natalie Sciver, Amy Ellen Jones(w), Sophia Dunkley, Katherine Brunt, Sarah Glenn, Sophie Ecclestone, Anya Shrubsole, Kate Cross, Fran Wilson, Natasha Farrant, Freya Davies, Mady Villiers, Emily Arlott
India Squad: Smriti Mandhana, Shafali Verma, Punam Raut, Mithali Raj(c), Harmanpreet Kaur, Deepti Sharma, Pooja Vastrakar, Taniya Bhatia(w), Shikha Pandey, Jhulan Goswami, Ekta Bisht, Poonam Yadav, Sneh Rana, Jemimah Rodrigues, Radha Yadav, Priya Punia, Arundhati Reddy, Indrani Roy
