BCCI congratulates Indian team for defeating New Zealand in World Cup clash

16 July 2017

India on Saturday destroyed New Zealand to advance to the semi-finals of the ongoing Women's World Cup in England.

Gayakwad was absolutely brilliant as she picked up five wickets giving away just 15 runs in her 7.3-over spell. Jhulan Goswami won the title of leading wicket taker in women cricket when she got her 181 wicket in a match against South Africa.

New Zealand Women (Playing XI): Suzie Bates (c), Rachel Priest (w), Amy Satterthwaite, Katey Martin, Sophie Devine, Katie Perkins, Maddy Green, Amelia Kerr, Hannah Rowe, Lea Tahuhu, Leigh Kasperek.

However, the highlight of the virtual knock-out match was Mithali's sixth ton in her 184th match and her 109 came from 123 balls and had 11 fours in it. Yes, you got it right - we are talking about Mithali Dorai Raj, skipper of the Indian Women's Cricket Team.

With the help of Harmanpreet Kaur and Veda Krishnamurthy, the skipper took India's score to 265, which proved to be a bit too much for the White Ferns, who bowed out of the tournament with this loss. She had even shut down a reporter for asking her before the tournament who her favourite male cricketer was.

Her own dismissal off the seventh ball started a slide which they couldn't stop. If India lose the match, it will be the last ever World Cup match for captain and ODI record-holder Mihali Raj.

Her unprecedented performance at the ICC Women's World Cup 2017 did not go unnoticed. She held the Indian innings together after Smriti Mandhana (13) and Punam Raut (four) had fallen early. The two put up 108-run stand in just 78 balls before both of them were dismissed in the final over. In the end, win or lose, it is this resilient fight that will make the difference to the team and women's cricket in India.
