Live cricket India vs New Zealand ICC Women’s World Cup 2017 Do-or-die game for both sides

India sealed the one remaining ICC Women's World Cup 2017 semi-final spot in style as a majestic century from captain Mithali Raj and five wickets from Rajeshwari Gayakwad secured a huge 186-run victory over New Zealand in Derby.

Mithali Raj believes that her team has the ability to play a better game and has demanded improvement.

Mithali had recently crossed 6000 runs in ODI cricket, become the first in the women's game to do so.

India must win against New Zealand if they wish to make it to the knockouts of the ICC Women's World Cup 2017. Jhulan Goswami won the title of leading wicket taker in women cricket when she got her 181 wicket in a match against South Africa.

Mithali, who in the earlier match against Australia became the highest run-getter in ODIs and first batswoman to reach 6,000 runs, continued with her purple patch.

Flynn may have violated the Logan Act, which prohibits Americans from negotiating with foreign governments about disputes with the United States.

Raj with almost 8,400 runs in the global cricket has become India's highest female run scorer in all the three formats.

The 34-year-old, who made her debut at the age of 16, has often been called the Sachin Tendulkar of Indian women's cricket. The celebrations were somewhat muted as India went on to lose the match but the significance of the milestone can't be lost on anyone.

Se further added, "It's interesting because in this tournament we've seen every game as a must-win and we've played like that". Suzie Bates' decision to put India in to bat first was justified by Lea Tahuhu and Hannah Rowe as they dismissed Punam Raut (4) and Smriti Mandhana (13) respectively.

The Proteas ran through their batting line-up to notch up a 115-run win while defending champions Australia outplayed them in batting, bowling and fielding to claim an eight-wicket win. Even in this match, scoring runs won't be an easy task. In 12 innings this year, Mithali has scored 621 runs at an average of 77.62.
