- First ODI: India, 232-3, bt England, 227-7 by seven wickets
- Alice Davidson-Richards (50 no) is England’s top scorer
Jhulan Goswami’s farewell tour started with a flourish as the 39-year-old helped India restrict England to 227 for seven in the first one-day international at Hove on Sunday, despite an unbeaten maiden ODI half-century from Alice Davidson-Richards.
India then rollicked to their target in 44.2 overs with seven wickets in hand, thanks to fifties from Yastika Bhatia, Harmanpreet Kaur and Smriti Mandhana – the latter falling just nine runs short of a century.
