The brilliant batting in the first innings resulted in India posting a score of 333 runs in their allotted 50 overs.
Chasing the score, England were aiming for a ferocious start.
However, they lost their first three wickets within eight overs.
The middle-order batter Alice Capsey, Danielle Wyatt, and skipper Amy Jones made efforts by scoring 39, 65, and 39 runs respectively but not enough to take the home side to victory.
Harmanpreet has also entered her name in the history books with her match-winning knock for the Women In Blue.
A clinical performance from the Indian Women’s Team as they thrash the hosts England here at Canterbury to win the contest by 88 runs.
India W also win the series 2-0 with a game to spare. This is India’s second series win in England and their first since 1999.
