Overs 15 || Score 49/2 || Harmanpreet 4 ; Raj 28

It is just occasional boundaries that is keeping the run rate going. The pacers are really holding onto the batsmen, not allowing them singles.  

Overs 12 || Score 37/2 || Harmanpreet 2 ; Raj 18

India continue slow, struggling to put up runs on the board. They cannot repeat the mistakes of the past to be extra cautious with their batting as it comes at the cost of slower run rate.

Mithali Raj walked in next. Five off the over. Kasperek continued. Four off the over. A boundary of the back-foot down cover for Mandhana.  

Overs 3 || Score 6/0 || Mandhana 5 ; Raut 1

New Zealand started off with some spin attack. Kasperek handed over the new ball. Ended in a maiden over. Lea Tahuhu stepped in next with some pace action. Maiden again. Kasperek again. And the first boundary, up and over the midwicket. A classy shot played by Smriti Mandhana. Six off the over.

INDw XI: S Mandhana, P Raut, M Raj, H Kaur, D Sharma, V Krishnamurthy, S Verma, S Pandey, J Goswami, R Gayakwad, P Yadav

NZw XI: S Bates, R Priest, A Satterthwaite, K Martin, S Devine, K Perkins, M Green, A Kerr, H Rowe, L Tahuhu, L Kasperek

Mithali Raj-led side was up and rolling after winning four consecutive matches in their campaign at England, but soon succumbed to failure when they suffered two back-to-back defeats. Low on morale, the Indian eves have now found themselves in a virtual quarter-final against the White Ferns, a win against whom would take them to the next round. Adding to their advantage, Indians have had already registered three victories on this ground and would thus be aiming for a fourth consecutive one.

What has been troubling the Women in Blue is their batting approach. Their attempt at being more cautious, or rather extra in this matter has not turned cards in their favour as it has resulted in slower run rate thereby adding more pressure on the middle-order batswomen.

Smriti Mandhana's failure to notch up a few runs has remained a big concern for the team. Harmanpreet Kaur and Jhulan Goswami, who has had a rather quite tournament need to rise to the occasion to deliver their best for the team.

New Zealand, who are rather more accustomed to such situations, are also a team to look out for. Sophie Devine, whose 41-ball 93 is still afresh in the minds of cricket fans alongside skipper Suzie Bates and Rachel Priest can form a fearsome trio to counter down Indian bowling attack.

The least they can expect is rain as heavy showers can lead to early washout of Kiwi hopes.


India: Mithali Raj (C), Ekta Bisht, Rajeshwari Gayakwad, Jhulan Goswami, Mansi Joshi, Harmanpreet Kaur, Veda Krishnamurthy, Smrti Mandhana, Mona Meshram, Shikha Pandey, Poonam Yadav, Nuzhat Parween, Punam Raut, Deepti Sharma, Sushma Verma, Smriti Mandhana.

New Zealand: Suzie Bates (C), Amy Satterthwaite, Erin Bermingham, Sophie Devine, Maddy Green, Holly Huddleston, Leigh Kasperek, Amelia Kerr, Katey Martin, Thamsyn Newton, Katie Perkins, Anna Peterson, Rachel Priest, Hannah Rowe, Lea Tahuhu.
