New Zealand captain Suzie Bates won the toss and elected to field first against India in the match 27 of the ICC Women's World Cup 2017.

Put into bat, Mithali (109 off 123 balls, 11*4) helped resurrect India's innings with two century stands - first a 132-run third wicket partnership with Harmanpreet Kaur (60 off 90, 7*4) and then joined forces with Veda Krishnamurthy (70 off 45, 7*4, 2*6) to add 108 runs - at the County Ground here. With explosive openers and a team that runs between wickets well, only a score in excess of 250 will give India some breathing space, especially with a fresh wicket being prepared for the game. In reply, New Zealand could only muster a paltry 79.

The Indian team now have two current world record holders with pacer Jhulan Goswami being the leading wicket-taker in 50-over cricket.
