So India keep winning but this one went right to the end. Could have had more runs on the board but for a collapse in the middle. Could have had things easier with the defense but for Amelia Kerr thrashing the ball all around in the penultimate over. But best to recall that New Zealand are not an easy team to get past and they showed that today. Shafali Verma the Player of the match with 46 from 34 balls. One wicket each for all India bowlers but Shikha Pandey doing really well to stop the bleeding of runs. India were near perfect in the field as well, unlike their opponents. With that, India are through to the semi-finals and the first to do so. Their next fixture will be against Sri Lanka on Saturday. Join us then, but until then, it's goodbye from us at Firstpost.

Shikha Pandey pivotal in containing New Zealand

12:39 (IST)

India captain Harmanpreet Kaur: "In the last three games we've learnt a lot. Now it is about taking it day by day. We made a strong start, looked good after 10 overs. But didn't carry that momentum forward. We need to do better at that in the next few games. In the bowling, we were good but afforded some mistakes. We can't do that when games get tougher ahead. Can't keep making the silly mistakes."

12:37 (IST)

New Zealand captain Sophie Devine: "I thought we did really good to restrict them to 133 after the way Shafali Verma started."

"We probably expected to the pitch to be different. We didn't adapt quickly enough. Jensen did well but the spinners closed things down for us."

"I thought we very close today but not quite. We can take positives to cut them down, the late flourish. Little time before we come back for Bangladesh."

12:34 (IST)

Tough being a professional cricketer!

12:34 (IST)

Between Australia and New Zealand now to make the semis. Oof!

Highlights

India Women vs New Zealand Women, ICC Women's T20 World Cup match live updates: India survive! Kerr moved across the off side to try and clear the boundary for a win, a four for a tie and force a Super Over. But Shikha follows her and it has struck Kerr on the pad. Desperate attempt for a second run and Jensen is caught short. Kerr is distraught as the two teams come out for the shake of hands. India women beat New Zealand by 4 runs.

Preview: India women will look to continue their winning run and inch closer to a semi-final berth when they take on New Zealand at the Junction Oval, Melbourne in the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup on Thursday.

The fact that both teams are unbeaten in the tournament so far makes it a mouth-watering contest. While India registered victories against Australia and Bangladesh (by 17 and 18 runs respectively), New Zealand posted a seven-wicket win over Sri Lanka in their first group game.

A win for the White Ferns would see them go level on points with the Harmanpreet Kaur-led side.

India have plenty of positives going into Thursday’s clash. Playing quick-fire knocks of 29 and 39, 16-year-old Shafali Verma has looked in good touch and got India off to flying starts in their previous games. Meanwhile, Poonam Yadav has bamboozled the batswomen with her leg-spin, picking up seven wickets so far. The middle order-batting, however, remains an area of concern.

New Zealand have a better head-to-head record against India in recent years, having won the last three matches between the two sides. Exactly a year back, they had beaten the Indian team 3-0 in a three-match T20 international home series.

It is expected to be India’s toughest outing this far but undoubtedly, the Harmanpreet Kaur-led unit will be up to the task.
