Hello and welcome CricketCountry’s coverage of the fourth One-Day International (ODI) between India Women and New Zealand Women at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore on Monday. The visitors are currently leading the five-match series 2-1, thanks to a comfortable six-wicket win over the hosts in the third game.

India Women failed in the batting department for the third time in the series, finishing at a total of 182 for the loss of nine wickets in 50 overs. Veda Krishnamurthy top-scored for the hosts with a hard-fought 63 off 86 balls, while Sophie Devine caused most of the destruction to the Indians by taking three wickets for 40 runs.

The White Ferns, in reply, never looked threatened during their innings. Skipper Suzie Bates and Rachel Priest provided a 125-run opening stand that pretty much sealed the game for good.
