England Women in a spin
One-day match, Lincoln: India Women 89-4 (29.5 overs) beat England 86 (35.5 overs) by six wickets

Off-spinner Nooshin Al Khadeer bagged her first five-wicket haul in international cricket as England made a depressing start to the four-nation tournament.

The 21-year-old swept through the tail as England lost their last six wickets for 13 runs.

Only Charlotte Edwards (23) and Claire Taylor (14) reached double figures as they were bowled out with 14.1 overs of their innings remaining after being put in by Indian skipper Anjum Chopra.

Al Khadeer's first success came when she had Laura Newton caught by Dhar Rumeli for nine, and later dismissed Sarah Collyer, Laura Harper, Clare Taylor and Lucy Pearson in the space of three overs.

He figures of five for 14 were the best by an Indian woman in one-day cricket.

England needed early wickets in reply and Taylor did her bit by removing openers Chopra (nought) and Sunetra Paranjpe (11) for figures of two for 15 from nine overs.

But Jaya Sharma dug in for an hour and a half to make 33 and when she was bowled by Lucy Pearson, India were only two runs short of their target.

The match ended four balls later when Rumeli hit the winning boundary.
