    Women World Cup finals: England win by 9 runs, PM Modi applaud’s Team India

    Chasing a tricky total of 229, Indian middle-order collapsed like a pack of cards, being bowled out for 219 in 48.4 overs.

    India put up a tough fight but England lift the World Cup. It is the fourth time England has won, following successes in 1973, 1993 and 2009.

    Chasing a tricky total of 229, Indian middle-order collapsed like a pack of cards, being bowled out for 219 in 48.4 overs.

    However, the cricket fraternity along with the Prime Minister applauded team India’s effort.

    “Our women cricketers gave their best today. They have shown remarkable tenacity & skill through the World Cup. Proud of the team! @BCCIWomen”

    It was a case of so near yet so far for the Indian team who would be devastated having come within a sniffing distance of a historic triumph.

    The last seven wickets fell for a mere 28 runs in 6.5 overs as India were cruising along at 191 for 3 at one stage before Veda Krishnamurthy’s (35) atrocious shot selection brought the Englishwomen back into the game.

    It was after opener Poonam Raut (86 of 115 balls) anchored the innings while Harmanpreet Kaur hit a couple of sixes in her innings of 51.

    Earlier, Natalie Sciver’s 51 and Sarah Taylor’s 45 laid the foundation for England’s decent total of 228 for 7.
