  1. On to the T20s

    The TMS team are now heading (by air and rail) to Guwahati in eastern India for the three-match T20 international series which starts on Monday - the games are on 4, 7 and 9 March.

    Those matches are due to start at 04:30 GMT, so TMS will be on air from 04:15. But should you require beauty sleep, the entire matches will be replayed later in the day.

    We''ll be back on Monday to talk you through the T20s - but before then, you can follow the final ODI of the men's series against West Indies with live text on Saturday afternoon. And if you've not yet had the chance to relive yesterday's exciting game, you can do so via the TMS podcast.

    That's it from us for today, though - hope you enjoyed the game.

    Lewis Knight (any relation?): Well played @Heatherknight55 that was nerve wracking listening!

    England again lost early wickets in their run chase, with a slightly rejigged batting order not entirely paying off, but they found a good partnership between captain Heather Knight (47) and the recalled Danni Wyatt (56) who made her maiden ODI fifty.

    It was nip and tuck for a while, but Georgia Elwiss (33 not out) played a crucial role and although Katherine Brunt (18) fell in the penultimate over, Anya Shrubsole came in to hit the winning runs.

    England take two ICC Women's Championship points and will draw level with fifth-placed Pakistan when the ICC updates its table.

    So while you get your breath back, let's reflect on what turned out to be a rather exciting ODI - as once again, the team who won the toss has lost the game.

    India lost Jemimah Rodrigues to the second ball of the innings but Smriti Mandhana (66) and Punam Raut (56) added 129 before Katherine Brunt hit back to rip through the top five, finishing with 5-28. But from 150-7, Deepti Sharma and Shikha Pandey stretched the score to a challenging 205-8.

    The middle order is the issue India need to fix - if India can remodel their existing all-rounders rather than bringing in young players from domestic cricket. Guwahati for the T20s is going to be very different from here in Mumbai, but India are not the strongest team in T20 and I think we'll see England leading the way.

    How do England start series like this better?

    I'm sure it's been discussed a lot in the men's game too, it comes down to preparation - they only played one warm-up game here so some of the key batters didn't get much of a chance to play in the conditions. They seem to hit the ground running - when it's too late?

  7. Player of the match

    Player of the match Katherine Brunt: "It's been a tough tour, India have played brilliantly and adapted to the conditions, but we've shown character and resilience and we've a lot to be proud of after our win today. I've worked a lot on not swinging the ball and just using the seam, so it's worked for me today."

  8. Captain's view

    England captain Heather Knight: Today was all about fighting and shoqing character- Katherine was outstanding and at 33 she's still adding tricks to her game, that little spell got us back in the game. I enjoyed batting with Danni who always makes me smile, but Georgia and Katherine won it for us."

  9. Captain's view

    India captain Mithali Raj: "We've been consistent in losing the third ODI of many of our series. After a good partnership between Smriti and Punam, there was a collapse in the middle order, we could have tightened up but their [England's] partnerships in the middle order took the game away from us."

    It's almost a development squad for the T20s with a couple of new players, so it should be an interesting series.

    England will feel they're stronger in the T20 format than India - Smriti Mandhana will be captaining the T20 side for the first time.

    For India, to get a series win against the world champions and take an important step towards automatic qualification for the World Cup is a big achievement.

    England still haven't got the condensed calendar that the men have - they'd rather like to have the players under Mark Robinson's control for more of the year. So they need to develop the domestic game as well as the international calendar.

    I don't think India will be worried about the whitewash - it was a close game. They'll be more worried about their middle order, as they have a history of middle-order collapses.

    It's a performance England probably wished they'd had in the first or second ODI - they gritted it out with the bat, and showed what you've got to do to get over the line.

    I loved Shrubsole's cheeky little raise of the bat to the England balcony, after a run chase that looked unlikely. A bit of face saved by England.

    A mention also for Georgia Elwiss, with a crucial 33 not out from 53 balls.

  19. Champagne moment

    ENGLAND BEAT INDIA BY TWO WICKETS WITH SEVEN BALLS TO SPARE - TAKE TWO ICC CHAMPIONSHIP POINTS.

    INDIA WIN SERIES 2-1.
