Under pressure India face NZ in virtual quarterfinal

Saturday, July 15, 2017

Derby: Their confidence on a low after two consecutive defeats, India face a do-or-die situation when they take on New Zealand in what can be termed as a virtual quarterfinal of the ICC Women's World Cup here today.

Hanging on to fourth spot on the points table, a loss tomorrow will shatter India's semifinal hopes.

After starting the tournament on a promising note with four wins on the trot, India slumped to their second straight loss on Wednesday.

At Bristol, they were defeated by a dominant Australia by eight wickets, despite a fighting century from Punam Raut, and a record breaking 69 from captain Mithali Raj.

Whoever wins will secure the last remaining semi-final spot with hosts England, South Africa and defending champions Australia already qualifying for the last last four.

Heading into the last league games, England, South Africa and Australia will primarily play for position in the semi- final but for India and New Zealand it is a do-or-die situation.

The Indians only have themselves to blame for their current situation as they batted unexpectedly slow on a track that was offering a bit of turn and grip.
