England captain Heather Knight rued a lack of late runs for their defeat as well as dropped catches – five in total.
“They batted outstandingly at the start on a good wicket. But we clawed it back brilliantly, Sophie Ecclestone and Kate Cross were outstanding in that middle period,” she told Sky Sports.
“We felt like we were in a good position but the last six or seven overs went for too many today.
“The fielding performance wasn’t us. We’re not too concerned, there’s a bit of frustrating but there’s a lot of we could’ve done differently there. We’ve got to be better as a fielding group.
“It was a good wicket, but at halfway we thought they had a below-par score. We got a few good partnerships together but clusters of wickets cost us.
“I want the girls to keep that attacking mindset but we just need to be more clinical with the execution.
“Sophie has worked so hard on her batting, she’s a proper batter and she got us into a really good position with Kate Cross.”
