Sarah Taylor’s excellent display of wicketkeeping

England women made it two wins out of two at the World Twenty20 with a tense two-wicket win over hosts India at the majestic Dharamsala stadium.

Spinner Heather Knight struck with the third ball of the match, claiming 3-15, and despite two dropped catches England restricted India to 90-8.

In reply England twice lost two wickets in two balls against the spinners, with slow left-armer Ekta Bisht taking 4-21.

There were also two needless run outs before England won with six balls left.

England next play on Friday against West Indies, who have also won their first two matches in Group B.
