Ground London: Jhulan Goswami ripped through England top order claiming five wickets as the hosts were forced to follow on after being dismissed for a paltry 99 in their first innings in reply to India's 307 all out on the third day of the women's second and final Test at Tauton Country Ground.

After following on, England were 104 for two at tea in their second innings, still needing 103 runs to wipe off first innings deficit and make India bat again.

Resuming the third day at 74 for six, England were soon all out with Goswami picking up two quick wickets including that of overnight not out batswoman CM Edwards -- who top-scored with 26 -- and dismissing next batswoman in for a duck.

Earlier on the second day, Goswami tore apart the hosts' first innings claiming the top three batswomen and England were all out for 99 in just 51 overs.

In their second innings also, England opener L K Newton, who was dismissed by Goswami for a duck in the first innings, fell for three to the same bowler again while S C Taylor was run out.

Brief Scores: India 1st innings: 307 all out (Anjum Chopra 98, Mithali Raj 65, L K Newton 4 for 61) England 1st innings: 99 all out in 51 overs (CM Edwards 26, Jhulan Goswami 5 for 33, England 2nd Innings: 104 for 2 at tea.
