Women's WC: New Zealand win toss, put India to bat

Amy Satterthwaite top-scored for the White Ferns with just 26.

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

However, it wasn't the most productive of all phases for India. Their confidence on a low after two consecutive defeats, India face a do-or-die situation when they take on New Zealand in what can be termed as a virtual quarterfinal of the ICC Women's World Cup.

There was no respite for New Zealand batters as India kept Chipping way with the wickets. Later, in Taunton against England, she registered the highest individual women's Test score of 214 runs. If India lose the match, it will be the last ever World Cup match for captain and ODI record-holder Mihali Raj.

India's Mithali Raj is congratulated by coach Tushar Arothe after her dismissal. The Indian women's team started the tournament brilliantly by winning its first four matches. India has always had the problem that when faced with the crunch matches, the team does not necessarily step up.

Needing to chase down 266 for a victory and advance to the semifinals, New Zealand were bundled out for just 79. Jhulan Goswami won the title of leading wicket taker in women cricket when she got her 181 wicket in a match against South Africa.

However, it was in the New Zealand National T20 final in 2015 where she announced herself to the televised public. New Zealand, on the other hand, made two changes - Hannah Rowe and Maddy Green come in for Holly Huddleston and Erin Bermingham. For India, Rajeshwari Gayakwad took five wickets for 15 runs.

The pacers' disciplined bowling ensured that the pressure started to build very early and Katey Martin became the first victim of spin, failing to clear midwicket off Deepti in the 11th over.
