India vs. England: Heather Knight’s side continues to struggle with spin following another batting meltdown.

It is one of the sport’s most difficult obstacles, and probably much more so in the women’s game due to the lack of Tests played.

But England’s current collapse to 136 all out in Mumbai, after being 79-2, and with seven wickets going to spin, is not an outlier.

Worryingly, this is quickly becoming the norm.

England has lost 87 wickets to spin and only 45 to speed since the end of the T20 World Cup in South Africa in February.

Deepti Sharma’s off-spin, which took 5-7 in England’s first innings, prompted their latest collapse, leaving them 478 runs behind at the end of day two.
