India chased down England’s total of 201/9 to win the final ODI in Nagpur and take the three-match series 2-1.
After winning the toss and batting first England were indebted to Amy Jones, who made a career-best 94 as they scrambled to a seemingly competitive total on a tired track.
The hosts though found few demons in the pitch and knocked off the runs comfortably, reaching their target just two wickets down to maintain England’s record of never having won an ODI series in India.
England’s bowlers had ran through India to see them win the second ODI but Smriti Mandhana (53), Mithali Raj (74*) and Deepti Sharma (54*) were too good on this occasion.
The result was a disappointing way for England’s tour to end but on a trip that was always partly about development and progress there was a silver lining to be found in Jones’ innings.
