It’s his last fight. “She is a player who has taught us a lot. She was the captain when I made my debut and I have learned a lot from her and now our young bowlers Renuka Singh and Meghna Singh are also learning from her. She has been an inspiration to all of us and we have learned a lot from her.”

England’s stand-in captain Amy Jones said the current series against India will teach her young fast bowlers a lesson. “Every loss is hard to digest and he took the win away from us by doing well with his batting. Harman batted well. It was very difficult for him to bowl and it is a good lesson for our young bowlers.
