England scored a superb recovery to win a consolation of two wins over India on the third international women's day in Mumbai.

Chasing 206, tourists dropped to 49-5 before being revived by Heather Knight (47) and a half-century ODI by Danielle Wyatt (56).

Katherine Brunt fell with two needed, but Anya Shrubsole hit his first ball for four to seal the win.

India was before 129-1 before Brunt's 5-28 helped restrain them to 205-8.

The local team still takes the series 2-1, but England avoided what would be only his second quarter in India.

Most importantly, they earn two points in the Women's Cricket International Women's Championship, rising to the fifth of the table, which would be good enough to qualify for the 2021 World Cup if hosts New Zealand finish in the first four.

England now passes Guwahati for three international Twenty20s against India, the first of which is on Monday.

Fast bowling Kate Cross, who did not play in this match, seemed to suffer an injury in the groin while playing bowling during the interval and may be a doubt for the parties and Sri Lanka tour that follows.
