India Vs New-zealand, Women’s World Cup: India won by 186 runs after scoring 265. That should tell you something. Something about the mightiness of the win. White Ferns were never in the plot. Presenting, the snapshot review:
- Losing toss and putting to bat first, India didn’t have a good start. After losing Mandhana and Punam for 21 itself, the panic button was pressed. But after this, it was the brilliance of highest run scorer in the history to step up, Mithali (100), along with Hampreet (60) made sure bowlers have something to fight for. Veda’s 70 ,made sure that if the black caps have to win, they have to bat their best.
265 was never an easy task. And it became evident in the third over itself when they found themselves staggering for 7/2.
New Zealand’s innings after that was more like a procession. Rajshree Gayakward registered figures of 7.3-1-15-1, because of which New Zealand was humbled for 79. It was her first world cup match and she delivered the most.
The win made sure that India is through to semis where they’ll meet Australia on the same venue. Must be a cracker.
