A dominating performance by India against New Zealand has secured them a place in the semi-final of the 2017 Women’s World Cup.
At the toss captain Mithali Raj spoke of the importance of having runs on the board in a knockout situation, which is what India found themselves in against New Zealand after back-to-back losses against South Africa and Australia. And that is exactly how it panned out, as India’s target of 265 was too much for Suzie Bates and her side as they were bowled out for just 79 at Derby.
India’s stunning performance was praised by one and all from the cricketing world. Here are some of them!
