Deepti Sharma and Arundhati Reddy were among the top bowlers for India. Shreyanka Patil and Pooja Vastrakar also got a wicket each.

In the run-chase, Smriti held one end steady, with Shafali Varma , Priya Punia and skipper Harmanpreet Kaur playing crucial knocks and laying down the platform for Jemimah Rodrigues and Richa Ghosh to finish with six wickets and 56 balls left.
