The women in blue showed character to pull off a come-from-behind victory in the second T20I against England at Hove on Sunday. The return to form, finally, of captain Harmanpreet Kaur made the win sweeter.

Those two factors will stand India in good stead in Wednesday’s final T20I at Chelmsford, according to vice-captain Smriti Mandhana.

“The win in the second T20I is very important and the way we fought back in the last five overs showed a lot of character from our bowlers and fielders,” she said at a virtual press conference on Tuesday. “Harry Di coming back (into form) and hitting a few balls is very good for the team. The victory has put us in a position to win the T20 series and draw the multi-series format.”
