England women are 2-0 down in their five-match one-day international series against India after slipping to a 14-run defeat at Taunton.

The hosts looked set for a certain victory when they reduced the tourists to 46 for seven and 68 for eight but a counter-attacking 42 not out from number eight Amita Sharma and 22 from number 11 Guher Sultana saw them to 129 all out.

England would have fancied their chances of chasing their target but capitulated for 115 in 47.2 overs.

Opener Tammy Beaumont top-scored with 31 and Jenny Gunn made 20 but there were too many failures as Jhulan Goswami returned four for 17 to kick off the collapse.
