England, playing for pride after having conceded an unassailable 1-3 lead to India, edged past the hosts by two wickets in a close finish in the fifth and final women's ODI at the Mumbai Cricket Association's BKC ground in Mumbai on Monday.

Chasing India's modest 206 for nine, built primarily around half centuries from Mithali Raj 50 (in 85 balls, 3 fours) and Hamanpreet Kaur's 84 (113 balls, 9 fours), England reached the target with one ball to spare.

Opener Heather Knight top-scored with 49, that included six boundaries in 101 balls, while useful contributions down the order from Lydia Greenway (26), Laura Marsh (22) and Danille Wyatt (28 not out in 25 balls) took the visitors home.

India skipper Jhulan Goswami and her new ball partner Rumeli Dhar captured two wickets apiece as well as Gouher Sultana and Sonia Dabir.

England, who opted to field first, were struggling at 133 for five in the 38th over before clinching victory in the penultimate ball.
