Mumbai: Harmanpreet Kaur's brilliant unbeaten century went in vain as India suffered a 32-run defeat against defending champions England in their group A match of the ICC Women's World Cup in Mumbai on Sunday.

Kaur blasted 107 runs in 109 balls, laced with eight fours and two sixes, to become the second cricketer from India to slam a ton in the World Cup.

But the 23-year-old from Punjab didn't get much support at the other end as India made 240 for nine in reply to England's 272 in their stipulated 50 overs.
