India forced England to follow-on, the English skipper Charlotte Edwards smashed a century (105) while Caroline Atkins played a knock of 68-run.
England were bundled at 305 runs and posted a target of 98 runs to win. Goswami again scalped five wickets in the second innings. She returned with the figures of 5-45.
