Now between the two teams, the three-match T-20 series will be played in Guwahati, with the first match on March 4.

Chasing 205 for 8 wickets, England were struggling at 49 for five, after which all-rounder Danny Voight (56 runs in 82 balls), captain Heather Knight (47 off 63 balls) and Georgia Elvis (unbeaten 33 runs in 53 balls) played two crucial partnerships and played a key role in the team's victory.

England scored 208 runs in eight overs in 48.5 overs, raising two important points, because this series of three matches is part of the ICC Women's Championship.

The Indian team won the first two games and had already made the series itself.

Veteran fast bowler Jhulan Goswami (3/41 from three wickets) defended the target, dismissing England's top order by beating Amy Jones (13), Lauren Winfield (02) and Tamasin Beaumont (21).

Soon after, he scored 40 runs for 4 wickets, when off-spinner Deepti Sharma dismissed Natali skier (01) in the form. After this, fast bowler Shikha Pandey grabbed all-rounder Sarah Taylor (02) as England lost their half-century to 49 runs.

Vyat and Knight played an important partnership of 69 runs for the sixth wicket. After Knight's dismissal, Vyat added 56 runs for the seventh wicket with Elvis and brought the team closer to the target.

Earlier, with a five-wicket haul of medium-pacer Katherine Brunt, the Indian team could not take advantage of the good foundation laid out by the vice-captain Smriti Mandhana and Poonam Raut and could score 205 runs in eight wickets.

33-year-old Brint took 5 wickets for 28 runs and hit the Indian team's middle order. This gave the hosts a score of 150 for seven wickets at 129 runs on one wicket and the team failed to recover from it.

Although Deepti Sharma (27 not out) and Shikha Pandey (26) added 47 runs for the eighth, ensured that the Indian team crossed the 200-run mark. After the decision to bat, the hosts lost Jemima Rodrigues (0) wicket.
