Despite needing just three runs to win in the final over of the run-chase, India somehow managed to lose the game by one run against England in the third and final T20I against England in Guwahati and succumbed to a 3-0 whitewash in the series.
Twitter couldn’t comprehend how the home side managed to botch the run-chase, especially with Mithali Raj well-set at the other end.
what an almighty choke #INDWvENGW

This epic choke sums it up for India.
Until a mental-conditioning coach is roped in, this ailment will continue to haunt India. In the next bilateral series. In the next world tournament. #INDvENG

Today India Women emulated South Africa U19 in their T20I match against England Women. Needing 3 to win off the last six balls with six wickets in hand - lost by 1 run! 😱

Hey does anyone remember the optimism heading into that World T20 semifinal last year? Well... since then it’s been a, uh, descent of horrible proportions for the Indian women’s T20I team 😐

Kate Cross returns to England T20Is after 4 years, defends 2 in final over in her 3rd game on comeback & takes 2 wkts to be POM.
Rumeli Dhar returns to India T20Is after 7 years, takes 3 wkts in her 2nd game on comeback to help win series in South Africa. Dumped soon after that
