Danielle Wyatt hit a T20 century against India

T20 Tri Series, Mumbai: India Women 198-4 (Mandhana 76, Raj 53), England Women 199-3 (Wyatt 124) - England Women win by seven wickets

Danielle Wyatt hit an astonishing 124 from just 64 balls as England Women completed a mammoth chase to beat India in the T20 Tri Series in Mumbai.

Wyatt clobbered 15 boundaries and five sixes to help her country to their 199-run target with seven wickets and eight balls to spare.

The 26-year-old put on 61 for the first wicket with Bryony Smith before adding a further 96 with Tammy Beaumont, who made 35, for the second.

When she was out in the 17th over, England required just 16 from 18 balls, and the combination of Nat Sciver and Heather Knight saw the tourists home.

The chase beat the previous record in women's T20 internationals by a considerable way. The best had previously been England's 181 for six against Australia in Canberra in November last year.

Earlier, India had enjoyed the perfect start thanks to Mithali Raj and Smriti Mandhana. Raj made 53 from 43 balls at the top of the innings while her opening partner Mandhana hit 76 from 40.

Their first-wicket stand of 129 in one ball less than 13 overs presented an imposing platform from which they made a sizeable score. But few could have predicted Wyatt's innings.

England now have two victories from two games in the tournament, which also features Australia.
