Welcome to the live blog of the New Zealand vs India match-up at the ICC Women's Cricket World Cup 2022!

The Indian women's cricket team, led by skipper Mithali Raj once again failed to come out victorious against New Zealand as they lost by 62 runs. India's top order was not able to score many runs leading to a heavy defeat against the hosts. Vice-captain Harmanpreet Kaur was the only player to score a half-century (71).

India has thrashed Pakistan in their World Cup opener, winning by 107 runs apart from winning their two warmup matches. New Zealand, on the other hand, lost their opener to West Indies in a thriller but followed it up with a convincing win against Bangladesh.

India will now face the West Indies in the next match of the World Cup on March 12th.

    100 up for INDIA!

    A very attacking field for Sneh Rana. Amelia once again tries a googly, but it sits up nicely this time and Sneh Rana sends it to the boundary square of the wicket.

    100 up for India with that shot, but it has taken them 30 overs to reach that mark.

    IND - 101/5 (30)

    Golden Duck for Richa Ghosh!

    Googly first up from Amelia Kerr, Richa tries to cut it from the back foot and misses it altogether. BOWLED.

    Mithali Raj walks!

    Mithali Raj tries to come down the track and play across the line. Misses it completely and is stumped by Katey Martin. A strange, strange shot at this point and this match is going out of India's grasp rather quickly.

    IND - 97/4 (29.4)

    Harmanpreet gets going!

    A couple of boundaries for the Indian vice-captain and the Indian innings seems to be slowly coming to life. Still a lot to do though for the veteran pair out in the middle.

    IND - 92/3 (28)

    IND - 61/3 (23)

    Mithali Raj is now itching to get that run-rate up. She is trying to flash at everything in her zone and has managed to eke out a boundary of an outside edge, which flew just wide of slip.

    Harmanpreet is still trying to get her eye in.

    IND 61/3 (23)

    Yastika Bhatia falls!

    There goes another for India. Yastika Bhatia tries to work Tahuhu towards the mid-wicket region for a single, but all she manages is a leading edge to cover, where Frances Mackay takes a dolly.


    IND - 50/3 (19.1)

    Exceptional bowling from NZ

    Some great bowling by New Zealand, thankfully for India the batters in the middle have been calm and collected. Mithali Raj has been handed a life after being dropped at short cover off Lea Tahuhu.

    IND - 47/2 (18)

    Slow and steady

    They have been slow, but they are rebuilding well are Yastika Bhatia and Mithali Raj.

    IND - 43/2 (16)

    Horror for India!

    Last ball of the powerplay and Deepti Sharma has to walk leg before wicket by Lea Tahuhu. It was given not-out on field, but the White Ferns have it turned around via a review.

    IND - 26/2 (10)

    The strike rotation has been absolutely terrible so far and India have just made this chase much more difficult for themselves.

    Smriti Mandhana walks!

    The pressure builds and Smriti Mandhana falls. The southpaw tries to go aerial over cover off Jess Kerr but hits it straight to Suzie Bates, who was standing there.

    Officially a terrible start for India and they would need Bhatia to rebuild with yet another left-hander Deepti Sharma.

    IND - 10/1 (5.4)
