Published on

India Women defeated England Women by 4 runs in the semi-final at CWG 2022 to qualify for the finals at Commonwealth Games 2022. The match was a pretty close encounter in which both the teams showed grit to hang on until the final over of the game. 

England required 14 runs off the last over to win the game. However, they could only muster up 9 runs and found themselves being thrown out of the race for the gold medal at CWG 2022. Earlier in the day, India Women had won the toss and opted to bat first.

Chasing 165 runs, England Women looked in control for the most part of the game. However, they never took the initiative to seize the match, and India stayed in the game until the end to ultimately get the upper hand. Danielle Wyatt, Natalie Sciver and Amy Jones scored 35, 41 and 31 runs, respectively, but it was not enough for England to win the semi-final at CWG 2022.
