India to bat first after New Zealand win toss

Pakistan-W vs SriLanka-W

When the India began their ICC Women's World Cup 2017 campaign, things looked bright and hopeful.

Yet both teams will need to bounce back from defeats in the penultimate round of pool matches, where New Zealand lost by 75 runs to England and India were beaten by eight wickets by Australia.

Indian captain Mithali Raj created a world record by becoming the first player to cross 6,000 runs in the history of women's ODI, during the ICC World Cup match against Australia. The rain forecast for tomorrow will prove fatal to New Zealand's chances, for India have one extra point. However, enterprising opener Smriti Mandhana and Punam Raut, the century-maker against Australia, have departed cheaply.

Australia assured itself of advancing along with England and South Africa, who won their respective matches against New Zealand and Sri Lanka.

Fielding too has been a problem area for India throughout the tournament.

India would expect the likes of Mandhana, Raut and Harmanpreet Kaur, besides Deepti Sharma and Raj to fire in unison against the risky New Zealand. With the ball, Jhulan Goswami has lacked penetration, taking four wickets in six games at an economy of 4.7 (joint highest among fast bowlers) in the tournament. In the first three games alone, the Indian eves dropped eight catches.

The India vs New Zealand match is set to be played at the County Ground, Derby. A loss will see them pack their bags while a win will knock India out. "Amelia Kerr has been brilliant, she continues to surprise us", said New Zealand skipper Suzie Bates.
