India Women vs New Zealand Women, Highlights, 3rd T20I at Hamilton, Full Cricket Score: White Ferns complete 3-0 clean sweep with two-run win

11:44 (IST)

A competitive three-match T20I series comes to an end with Harmanpreet Kaur's girls coming short in each of the games, but wasn't a true reflection of how well they competed, with New Zealand captain too resonating the opinion. That brings us to the end of the coverage for the Women's series, but there is more cricket, with the toss for the Men's game just around the corner. For all the coverage, follow it here.

11:37 (IST)

Amy Satterthwaite, New Zealand captain: The 3-0 score doesn't show how good India have been. They were competitive throughout but we managed to cross the line again. We have shown over the last two matches that we can make a comeback in a match. 

11:36 (IST)

Harmanpreet Kaur, Indian captain: Disappointing as all the games were so close and we couldn't get ver the line. Few girls played really good cricket especially Smriti, Jemi and few bowlers. I think in T20s we need to work on our last 10 overs with the bat, if we do that then we will be able to solve our problems

11:33 (IST)

Sophie Devine is the Player of the Match: Credit to girls for sticking through it. Another fantastic series comes to an end. Kasperek bowled a very good final over. Keeping things simple and keeping it very clear.

11:29 (IST)

White Ferns win by 2 runs, complete a 3-0 clean sweep. Another thriller to cap the three-match T20I series. India fought till the end but just couldn't get over the line. Kasperek holds her nerve and almost yorks Raj with a full delivery on her legs, not providing any room or length. Raj can ponly manage it to squeeze it out to square leg fielder for a single.

After 20 overs,India Women 159/4 ( Mithali Raj 24 , Deepti Sharma 21)

Sixteen off six balls was always going to be a challenge, Raj and Sharma did try their best with boundaries from each but Kasperek made sure she defended well.

 

11:28 (IST)

Four needed off the final ball. Raj on strike.

11:27 (IST)
four

FOUR! Deepti Sharma has hoicked it across the line and tell you what the ball has been hit in the gap as well. Whipped and a dive from the fielder at mid wicket is not enough

11:26 (IST)
four

FOUR! What a start to the over! Raj moved across her stumps even before the ball was bowled and Kasperek and pumps it into the gap in the deep mid wicket.

11:24 (IST)

After 19 overs,India Women 146/4 ( Mithali Raj 18 , Deepti Sharma 14)
 

A fierce battle between Devine and Raj with both earning points for their team. Odds still very much with the White Ferns as India require 16 off the final over. Anybody fancies a super over here?

11:22 (IST)
four

FOUR! Raj thwacks it down the ground and beats the long on fielder with ease.  Just lines herself with an inital trigger movement to the left and across, goes deep and under it, smashing it for a much-needed boundary.

Preview, 3rd T20I: An improved batting performance will be foremost on skipper Harmanpreet Kaur's mind, when Indian women eyeing a consolation victory, take on New Zealand in the third and final T20 International here Sunday.

After winning the ODI series 2-1, Indian women lost momentum and subsequently the T20 series.

With an aim to build a squad for ICC World T20 in 2020, the Indian team management decided to drop team's senior batswoman Mithali Raj, who is no longer considered a force to reckon with in the shortest format.

Only time will tell whether this inspired call pays dividends in the long run but the results have been far from encouraging in the first two matches which India lost by 23 runs and four wickets respectively.

"We are building a team. Today, we may be facing difficulties but in future we will do well as the young players gain experience. I think the future is good for the team and results will follow," skipper Harmanpreet had said after conceding the series.

In both games whether chasing or batting first, India are stuck in the less than 140-run mark, which is below-par against a top team like New Zealand.

The biggest problem has been the lack of fight from the middle-order save Smriti Mandhana and Jemimah Rodrigues, who were top scorers respectively in the first two games.

Debutant Priya Punia's lack of experience has been evident but probably what hurt Women in Blue most is skipper Harmanpreet Kaur's indifferent form.

The Indian captain scored 17 and 5 in the first two games. She has been rusty due to lack of batting time since the start of the ODI series where the visitors won quite comfortably.

"We did not win the series but more than winning and losing, we learnt a lot. We have a very young squad, there are very few players who have played more than 30 matches. Most of the players have played less than 10 T20I matches. It is a good learning process for us," Harmanpreet has rued the lack of experience.

One of the biggest problems for Indian team has been deciding on what exactly is Deepti Sharma's role in the squad.

As an off-spinner, she is neither as restrictive as left-arm spinner Radha Yadav nor an attacking option like leg-spinner Poonam Yadav.

As a left-handed batswoman, she lacks the firepower to up the ante in the final overs of the innings. She has failed repeatedly over the last two years to change her game and it will only be fair if the team management decides where exactly she fits in.

If they are unable to find Deepti's replacement, it will reflect more about the lack of quality in the bench strength.

The White Ferns have picked their game since losing the ODI series with senior batswoman Suzie Bates scoring 57 in the final one dayer and a match-winning 62 in the second T20 International.

Squads:

India: Harmanpreet Kaur(c), Smriti Mandhana, Mithali Raj, Jemimah Rodrigues, Deepti Sharma, Taniya Bhatia, Poonam Yadav, Radha Yadav, Anuja Patil, Ekta Bisht, Dayalan Hemalatha, Mansi Joshi, Arundhati Reddy, Shikha Pandey, Priya Punia.

NZ: Amy Satterthwaite(c), Suzie Bates, Bernadine Bezuidenhout, Sophie Devine, Hayley Jensen, Caitlin Gurrey, Leigh Kasperek, Amelia Kerr, Frances Mackay, Katey Martin, Rosemary Mair, Hannah Rowe, Lea Tahuhu.

Match starts 7.30 am IST.
