A stunning all-round show from Deepti Sharma goes in vain as New Zealand, led from the front by Lauren Down, registers the second highest successful chase in women's ODI history to take an unassailable 3-0 lead in the series.

The Indian women started brilliantly with a 100-run stand between openers Shafali Varma and S Meghana. A mini collapse followed after which a calm half century from Deepti Sharma helped them post 279 on the board.

They women in blue started well in the chase as well, with Jhulan Goswami striking early thrice. But, Indian one again rain into a red-hot Amelia Kerr, before Down took the White Ferns over the line with vital contributions from Katey Martin and Frances Mackay.
