Cricket: England recover.

CRICKET: SKIPPER Charlotte Edwards struck a century to lead the fightback for England's women on day three of the decisive Second Test against India at Taunton.

With the two-Test series level, the hosts looked set for defeat when they were bowled out for 99 in their first innings, conceding a lead of 208 runs.

In England's second effort, coming in at 34 for two, Edwards joined Caroline Atkins at the crease and shared an unbeaten stand of 171, with the skipper reaching 100 before stumps.

Atkins was 68 not out as the hosts reached 205 for two, just three runs behind.
