India women registered a 46-runs win over Bangladesh in the second ODI on Wednesday at the Sardar Patel Stadium in Motera, Ahmedabad, to seal the three-match series.

With this win, India has taken an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series.

The win was fashioned by India skipper Harmanpreet Kaur's brilliant 103 off 100 balls with 11 boundaries and two sixes.

Kaur shared a 109-run stand for the third wicket with Poonam Raut (80: 104b, 9x4) to help India post an impressive 256 for six in its 50 overs.

For Bangladesh, Jahanara Alam (2-38) and Salma Khatun (2-48) were the key wicket-takers.

In its response, Bangladesh appeared to be in the hunt till top-scorer Rumana Ahmed (75: 94b, 8x4) shared a 76-run stand with Lata Mondal (28) for the third wicket.

But thereafter the middle-order caved in and in the end Bangladesh was restricted to 210 for nine in its 50 overs.

Harmanpreet Kaur's spell of two for 30 followed her brilliant hundred. The highest wicket-taker for India was Ekta Bisht with figures of three for 34.
