Harleen Deol then joined the India captain in the middle as the player scored 113 runs, with both reaching the 50 run in quick succession. Deol was sacked at 58, but Harmanpreet stormed past the 100 run as India exploited two England debutants – Lauren Bell and Freya Kemp.
Previously, England Women won the toss and chose to bowl against India in the second ODI of the three-game series at the St. Lawrence Ground, Canterbury.
The Harmanpreet Kaur-led side are looking to seal the deal with a win in this match, while England will try to even the series. This series will also serve as a farewell to veteran sailor Jhulan Goswami, who would bow out of international cricket after the third ODI on September 24.
