Freya Kemp’s half-century could not help England avoid defeat to India in the second IT20 of their three-match series

An historic half-century from Freya Kemp was not enough to prevent India levelling the IT20 series against England with an eight-wicket win in Derby.

The hosts found themselves reduced to 54-5 after opting to bat first, but a sixth-wicket stand of 65 between Kemp and Maia Bouchier helped get England back on track as they reached 142-6.

Even after Bouchier’s departure for 34, 17-year-old Kemp stood firm and become England’s youngest player to make an IT20 half-century as she finished unbeaten on 51 from just 37 balls.

Smriti Mandhana got India off to a flying start in their reply, though, with an opening stand of 55 alongside Shafali Verma and the left-hander’s 79 not out saw the tourists over the line with 20 balls to spare to send the series to a decider in Bristol on Thursday.
