Sneh Rana and Taniya Bhatia take India to draw in one-off women's Test Cricket against England

In Women's Cricket, powered by a gritty unbeaten 80 by debutant Sneh Rana and her unfinished 104-run partnership for the ninth wicket with Taniya Bhatia 44 not out, India stole a draw in the one-off women's Test against England at the County Ground in Bristol, UK. Sneh became the first Indian woman cricketer to take four wickets and score a half-century in Test cricket.

India, who had looked down and out at one point in time when they were at 199 for seven wickets while following on before tea, saw gritty batting from the lower order against an England bowling attack that seemed to be tiring.

India lost four wickets for 24 runs to be reduced to 199 for 7 from 171 for 3 and were in danger of losing the match before the tea break. However, a 41-run partnership in just under 17 overs between Sneh and Shikha Pandey (18) helped India stretch England and give some hope.

After Shikha was dismissed, Sneh and Taniya buckled down and batted for 30.4 overs to save the Test for India. For England, left-arm spinner Sophie Ecclestone was the most successful bowler with 4 for 118 in 38 overs. Shafali was declared the Player of the Match for her 96 and 63 in the Test.
