Indians have come out rather cautiously after lunch. Both the players are not taking any undue risks. Thirushkamini breaks the shackles with a loft over mid off.

India have seen through the lunch break, having lost just one wicket. India will want these two to bat long and get closer to the target. New Zealand women have been very aggressive and rightly so.

So its all over. New Zealand Women are all out for 118. Dipti Sharma got the last two New Zealand wickets in this innings for India. Indians should fancy themselves to chase down the target.

Batting: Kate Broadmore 0(5) Anna Peterson 12(14)

Big, big wicket for India as Bates tries to go big over the leg side but finds the fielder at cover. The Indians are ecstatic and why not, that is a huge wicket for Bisht.

Batting: Suzie Bates 38 (72) Leigh Kasperek 0(5)

Another wicket for India! Perkins looks to sweep but misses and is trapped in front of the stumps. This is good bowling from India. Bates though is still out there and she will want to bat through here. And another one falls as Green hits one back to the bowler for a simple catch.

Live Cricket Score New Zealand Women 54/2 | Overs 17

Batting: Suzie Bates 27 (51) Sophie Devine 16(37)

Runs are starting to flow for New Zealand Women now. Devine is making most of the drop and has already hit a maximum to signal her intents. This is a crucial period in the game for both teams.

Live Cricket Score New Zealand Women 38/2 | Overs 12

Batting: Suzie Bates 21 (42) Sophie Devine 6(16)

The New Zealand women are living rather dangerously as the Indian bowlers are bowling tight lines and lengths. Devine has had a couple of close shouts against him but importantly she has survived. Dropped! The Indian fielding has been poor and Ekta Bisht drops Devine. Poor work, this could cost India big.

Live Cricket Score New Zealand Women 22/2 | Overs 6

Batting: Suzie Bates 11 (19) Sophie Devine 1(3)

Another wicket. The start is even better for India now. Jhulan Goswami removes Amy Satterthwaite, caught behind. The impressive Sophie Devine is at the crease now. No two best New Zealand batters are batting together at this moment. This is going to be a crucial partnership.

OUT: Amy Satterthwaite c Kalpana b Goswami 5 (14)

Batting: Suzie Bates 6 (12) Amy Satterthwaite 5 (12)

What a great start by India in this series decider. They managed to take the early wicket of Rachel Priest, who was run out without facing a ball, in the very first over of the innings. Till then Suzie Bates and Amy Satterthwaite have played sensibly.

OUT: Rachel Priest run out 0 (0)


New Zealand Women have won the toss and decide to bat first.

Team Changes: Both the teams have one change each. India have called back Ekta Bisht in place of Poonam Yadav. New Zealand has replaced Georgia Guy with Kate Broadmore.

The White Ferns side is a good all-round team. Their batting department was looked after mainly by middle-order batsmen Sophie Devine and openers Suzie Bates and Rachel Priest. Bates also led the team brilliantly. On helpful conditions, their bowling also looked handy at times.
