  • Live cricket India vs New Zealand ICC Women’s World Cup 2017 Do-or-die game for both sides

Vinod Rai, Chairman of CoA, said: "I want to extend my heartiest congratulations to Team India (Women's) on staging a remarkable comeback in the ICC World Cup". For India, Rajeshwari Gayakwad took five wickets for 15 runs.

Amy Satterthwaite's 26 was the only score past 12 as New Zealand's middle order batters offered little resistance, which Bates concedes has been a problem throughout the tournament. Against Australia, Raj surpassed former England captain Charlotte Edwards's 5992 runs when she reached 34, thereby becoming the highest scorer in ODIs. Rajeshwari Gayakwad was the wrecker-in-chief with a spell of 5/15.While India progressed to the semi-finals with this win, social media went into a frenzy. Yes, you got it right - we are talking about Mithali Dorai Raj, skipper of the Indian Women's Cricket Team.

Veda Krishnamurthy smashed 70 runs off 45 balls and propelled the Indian innings to a sizeable total.

Chasing a stiff target of 266, the White Ferns couldn't stand against a ruthless Indian bowling line up and were eventually bowled out for a mere 79 runs in just 25.3 overs at the County Cricket Ground on Saturday. Poor start for India as Punam Raut got out cheaply. She had even shut down a reporter for asking her before the tournament who her favourite male cricketer was. New Zealand, who won the toss, chose to field first. If India lose the match, it will be the last ever World Cup match for captain and ODI record-holder Mihali Raj.


Krishnamurthy was there to give impetus to the Indian innings towards the close and she was by far the most aggressive batswomen as she was always looking for big shots.

With so much riding on the match, it will be a test of India's character, one where they will have to show the fight they have been lacking in the last two games.

The first semi-final will be held on 18th July in which the teams in the first and fourth place will battle for a seat in the finals whereas second and third placed teams will play against each other in the second semi-final which will be held on 20th July.
