IND win by 186 runs, qualify for semi-final

Kohli posted an image of another Indian women cricketer instead of his female counterpart

Raj - who topped former England skipper Charlotte Edwards as the leading run scorer in Women's ODIs while making 69 against Australia on Wednesday - guided India to 265-7 in their winner-takes-all encounter with the White Ferns, in Derby, before New Zealand were bundled out for 79 to lose by 186 runs.

Mithali Raj (captain), Ekta Bisht, Rajeshwari Gayakwad, Jhulan Goswami, Mansi Joshi, Harmanpreet Kaur, Veda Krishnamurthy, Smrti Mandhana, Mona Meshram, Shikha Pandey, Poonam, Nuzhat Parween, Punam Raut, Deepti Sharma and Sushma Verma. New Zealand's 75-run loss to England in their last match has put them in a precarious position.

Mithali was appointed as the captain of the women's team in 2004 and since then she led the side in more than 100 WODIs.

Although at this stage, India couldn't have asked for a better opponent than the ones who have oddly flunked at crucial junctures in all ICC events since finishing runners-up in 2010 World T20.

She steadied the innings along with opening batswoman Punam Raut and finally reached the landmark with a six off Kristen Beams in the 30the over.
