Indian Eves to Face New Zealand in Knockout Battle

Indian Eves to Face New Zealand in Knockout Battle

Preview: India now find themselves in a must-win game after two successive defeats in the ICC Women's World Cup.

India will also hope for a better show from their bowling unit led by the world's highest ODI wicket-taker Jhulan Goswami and assisted by the spin trio of Ekta Bisht, Harmanpreet Kaur and Deepti Sharma.

A morale boost for India is that they return to a favourable ground where they have enjoyed a 100 per cent winning rate in this competition.




IST: 50 runs come up for India. There can't be a better motivation for either of the sides to give it their all tomorrow. Placed fourth in the points table, India take on New Zealand in a do-or-die game against New Zealand.

What to expect: Showers - a lot of it. No. 9 is tad late for the young Deepti Sharma to make any sort of impact with the bat, and given a fragile middle order, India might look to promote the allrounder slightly higher in the order, at the expense of off-colour Harmanpreet or Veda Krishnamurthy.

That tally proved nowhere large enough, though, as Australia chased down their target for the loss of just two wickets - skipper Meg Lanning (76no) and Ellyse Perry (60no) sharing an unbroken third-wicket stand of 124 after solid opening contributions from Nicole Bolton (36) and Beth Mooney (45). The Chief Minister sent a message in this regard and wished that Mithali Raj, as captain of the Indian women's cricket team and in her own capacity, should get more victories. "I think our bowlers need to more consistent in terms of their areas and bowling the good balls". "We know that if we beat India on Saturday, then we get to stay here".
