Women’s World Cup 2022 India vs New Zealand Match Live Score, IND vs NZ Match Live Scorecard: What looked like a cakewalk against a relatively weaker Pakistan side might not be possible against the New Zealanders, who have all bases covered.

India Vs New Zealand Live Score (Women’s World Cup 2022): Having pummelled arch-rivals Pakistan in a one-sided lung-opener, India will face an infinitely tougher challenge in hosts New Zealand and would endeavour to put up an improved batting show in their second ICC Women’s World Cup league stage game here on Thursday.

The pitch at Hamilton’s Seddon Park has been traditionally known as a batting belter and Mithali Raj and her team would like to put up a better show against Sophie Devine’s White Ferns, who have had a great run in the recently concluded bilateral series.

More than the margin of the 1-4 defeat, it was the fact that Indians were outplayed in all departments must have been a cause of worry for head coach Ramesh Powar who has been trying out various combinations. What looked like a cakewalk against a relatively weaker Pakistan side might not be possible against the New Zealanders, who have all bases covered.

Playing XI:

India: Smriti Mandhana, Yastika Bhatia, Deepti Sharma, Mithali Raj (c), Harmanpreet Kaur, Richa Ghosh (wk), Sneh Rana, Pooja Vastrakar, Jhulan Goswami, Meghna Singh, Rajeshwari Gayakwad

New Zealand: Sophie Devine (c), Suzie Bates, Amelia Kerr, Amy Satterthwaite, Maddy Green, Frances Mackay, Katey Martin (wk), Hayley Jensen, Lea Tahuhu, Jess Kerr, Hannah Rowe

Match Preview

After defeating arch-rivals Pakistan in the campaign opener, Mithali Raj’s Team India are ready to take on hosts New Zealand in ICC Women’s World Cup 2022 mat no. 8. The women may have begun their journey with a comprehensive win but they face White Ferns against whom they recently lost an ODI series 4-1. The challenge is indeed tough but at a stage like world cup, you could never predict what may happen.

In their previous game, India ended as the victorious side after Pooja Vastrakar made a career-best 69 in a 112-run seventh-wicket partnership with Sneh Rana which lifted a commanding 244-7 after a worrisome top-order collapse.

There wasn’t much turn from the pitch at the Bay Oval but the India spinners used flight and drop to nullify Pakistan’s chase. India’s win took it to the top of the points table on run-rate after the first full matches.

New Zealand on the other will come from a narrow loss against West Indies in their first game. New Zealand came to the last over on 254-7, chasing West Indies’ 259-9 and appearing poised to pull off the highest winning run chase in the history of the women’s world tournament, but then came part-time bowler Deandra Dottin who wreaked havoc in the final over; picking up three final wickets to bundle out Kiwis for 256.

The hosts will also be having the advantage of playing at home, the recent success in the ODIs against India will act as the confidence booster. Vice-captain Amy Satterthwaite stated that her team will use the information from the ODI series against India to their advantage.

By the looks of it, New Zealand may look like a much stronger side but this Indian women’s team is also known for turning fortunes in the most difficult conditions. Mithali’s girls will definitely root for a win, keeping the process as simple as possible.
