Sophia Dunkley made history in the wake of accepting her lady Test cap before an oddball Test against India, turning into the principal person of color to play Test cricket for England.

In the seventh over, Goswami took a lead from Winfield-Hill as the batsman went for an outstanding drive, however Smriti Mandhana botched the chance in the slip cordon regardless of having two hands ready.
