India Women vs New Zealand Women, India lose by 62 runs

Must Read

India Women cricket team lost by a huge margin of 62 runs against the hosts New Zealand Women’s cricket team in the second game of their campaign in the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup at Seddon Park in Hamilton.

Amelia Kerr with her all-round performance, Lea Tahuhu with her three-wicket haul and Amy Sattetherwaite with her brilliant 75 with the bat were the heroes for the White Ferns as it registered its second win in a row after the opening day’s 3 run loss to West Indies.

New Zealand innings restricted to 260-9

Earlier in the day, after winning the toss and deciding to field first, the Indian team restricted the Kiwis to only 260-9 after a brilliant showing from bowling all-rounder Pooja Vastrakar who picked four wickets. The Madhya Pradesh bowler finished her spell with figures of 4-34.

New Zealand were looking all set to get a score in the vicinity of 290-300 when Sattetherwaite (75) and Amelia Kerr (50) were batting together. Even with Katy Martin and Satterthwaite in the middle and New Zealand at 224-4 at the end of the 42nd over, 280 looked like a certainty. But very tight bowling from India meant that they got five wickets in the last eight overs and conceded only 36 runs.
