Dani Hazell and Sophie Ecclestone both recorded their best bowling performances in an ODI as England rolled India for 113 and went on to win by eight wickets in the second ODI at Nagpur.

The 18-year-old Ecclestone – whose previous best came in the first ODI – took 4-14 as well as taking a catch and effecting a run-out. She was awarded Player of the Match.

Hazell was similarly impressive, bowling with exquisite control to take 4-32 and remove three of India’s top four.

England were untroubled in their pursuit of 113 and won with 22 overs to spare. It was a much-improved effort from Mark Robinson and Heather Knight’s side and it leaves the series beautifully poised at 1-1.

The two sides will reconvene at the same venue on Thursday for a winner-takes-all clash.
