England won the toss and chose to bat first against India at Lord’s.

Mithali Raj-led Indian side is all set to take on England at Lord’s in the final of ICC Women’s World Cup 2017. This is the second instance in the history of the game where India will be playing a women’s World Cup final.

They last achieved the feat in 2005 under the captaincy of Mithali. They marched into the final after beating Australia by 36 runs in the semi-final at Derby in a rain-curtailed match. Harmanpreet Kaur’s heroics with the bat played key role in making India register a berth in finale. She scored an unbeaten 171 off just 115 balls. On the other side, England made it to the final after beating South Africa in a close encounter. Catch live scores and updates from India vs England in ICC Women’s World Cup 2017.
