Indian skipper Harmanpreet Kaur was the chief architect of India's 88 run victory at Canterbury yesterday. She scored an unbeaten 143, an innings which was laced with 11 boundaries and 4 sixes and accompanied by Harleen Deol's fine half century, India piled up a mammoth total pf 333-5. 

England were never really in the chase and kept on losing wickets at regular intervals, eventually bundling out for 245.

Want to have fun because it's the last game for her

The final match of the series will be played at Lord's, a venue where the two teams will be up against each other for the first time after the thrilling 2017 World Cup final showdown. Harmanpreet said India were keen to reverse the result for Goswami. But, more importantly, they wanted to enjoy the occasion.

"It's very important [to win] because that will be her last game," Harmanpreet added. "It will be a very emotional moment for all of us and we definitely want to win that game.

"Moreover, after winning the series now we just want to have fun because I know it's the last game for her."

Jhulan Goswami will be bidding adieu to the game as the highest wicket-taker in women's internationals, with 353 wickets so far across formats.
