Defending champions England suffered a shock defeat to Sri Lanka in their opening group match at the Women's World Cup in India.

England struggled to find their best form and posted 238-8 from their 50 overs in Mumbai, with Jenny Gunn making 52.

But Sri Lanka's Dilani Manodara hit the last ball of the match for six to clinch a one-wicket win for her team.

England may now have to beat India and West Indies if they are to progress.
