India crusies past New Zealand to reach semi-finals

17 July 2017

Besides being the highest run getter, Mithali Raj also holds the record for the most number of ODI fifties - her knock against Australia was her 49th half century in ODIs, besides the five centuries that she has scored. With 774 points on the chart, Mithali Raj - who still stands at position two, has rather closed in on the gap with her Australian counterpart Meg Lanning. In a do-or-die match on Saturday, India decimated New Zealand by beating them by a whopping 186 runs. In the first innings, off-spinner Leigh Kasperek took three wickets while Hannah Rowe and Lea Tahuhu took two and one wicket respectively.

After being sent in, India paced their innings perfectly to reach 265 for seven. "I think our bowlers need to more consistent in terms of their areas and bowling the good balls". 16-year old Amelia Kerr has 10 wickets in the tournament (joint second highest). Kaur swept her, while Raj used her feet.

Amy Satterthwaite top-scored for the White Ferns with just 26. Nicole Bolton (79) and Beth Mooney (53) put on 114 runs for the opening wicket before Ellyse Perry scored an nearly run-a-ball 55 (7x4, 1x6) to guide Australia to 269 after it had elected to bat first. Left-arm spinner Rajeshwari Gayakwad, brought in to replace Ekta Bisht after warming the bench for six games, finished with a career-best 5 for 15.

Championship leader Vettel had to cut short his trial with the so-called "shield" on Friday after complaining of dizziness. Free Practice 3 for the British Grand Prix ended with the Mercedes and Ferrari teammates splitting each other up.

India then produced a superb bowling display to dismiss the Kiwis for 79 in just 25.3 overs. However, their performances this tournament don't come as much of a surprise considering the state of cricket in the Caribbean.

But this was a great partnership too and not only because of Krishnamurthy, though she undoubtedly played a big part.

Kathy Cross and Sue Redfern were the umpires at Grace Road, the first time this century that two female officials have taken charge of an global match. As per Cricviz, misfieldeds cost New Zealand 12 runs, not that it mattered in the final context. Only these three players scored good score for Indian batting team.

Defending champion Cubs trade for pitcher Quintana
The group, said Epstein, won the World Series and has a goal of winning more, but starting pitching was needed for that to happen. As for how the Pelicans may fare with three of their top contributors now elsewhere, Milovich best describes that as a mixed bag.

Facing a tough chase, things started badly for New Zealand as Bates departed for 1. Deepti was the first to strike when, after a dry spell of not many boundaries, Martin hit her straight to Kaur at midwicket. Even Indian player lost 3 wickets early but after that Indian team took the match and didn't look back.

New Zealand are also grappling with fitness concerns around Sophie Devine, who can muscle the ball a long way and help the side break the run-rate muddle, like she did in the 41-ball 93 against Pakistan.
