It's a great day and I'm pleased that we started so well. I feel that everyone in the side contributed well against a confident India side whom we've played recently. It was a good day for us today and I'm happy with the performance that all the girls gave out in the field.

"The weather here is obviously very different from the UK currently but I don't think it's too much of a factor for us out in the field and I'm pleased how we've done out here today especially since we've not played cricket outdoors for six or seven weeks," said Edwards.

Losing captain Jhulan Goswami said although disappointed there were some positives from the match.

"We lost today and definitely I'm disappointed about the loss but we've got take the positives from the match and that was getting out and playing and getting a feel for the conditions and the type of wicket here. We need improve from today and hopefully tomorrow against South Africa we'll come out better," she said.
