Written by: Staff

London, Aug 31 (UNI) Jhulan Goswami ripped through England top order claiming five wickets as the hosts were forced to follow on after being dismissed for a paltry 99 in their first innings in reply to India's 307 all out on the third day of the women's second and final Test at Tauton Country Ground today.

After following on, England were 104 for two at tea in their second innings, still needing 103 runs to wipe off first innings deficit and make India bat again.

Resuming the third day at 74 for six, England were soon all out with Goswami picking up two quick wickets including that of overnight not out batswoman CM Edwards -- who top-scored with 26 -- and dismissing next batswoman in for a duck.

Earlier on the second day, Goswami tore apart the hosts' first innings claiming the top three batswomen and England were all out for 99 in just 51 overs.

In their second innings also, England opener L K Newton, who was dismissed by Goswami for a duck in the first innings, fell for three to the same bowler again while S C Taylor was run out.
