New Zealand's spinners have bowled well at the tournament, with Kerr, Leigh Kasperek and Erin Birmingham forming an effective trio, something which captain Suzie Bates knows she can turn to in a do-or-die match against India tonight at Derby. I felt that somewhere if I had few more batters to support me, maybe my game would have been much better. In bowling section, Rajeshwari Gayakwad took 4 wickets in just 8 overs and gives only 15 runs. This news is very exciting but I am sure that you all are going to love that Indian women team are going to be a part of ICC Women World cup 2017 and maybe this time they are going to be a champion like everybody wants.

Stylish former India batsman VVS Laxman took to Twitter to congratulate Mithali Raj and her team.

It is a virtual knock out match for both sides as the victor of this match will progress to the semi-finals.

Having accumulated over 6000 runs from 184 ODIs at an average of over 51, Mithali's place among greats in women's cricket is guaranteed. Later, in Taunton against England, she registered the highest individual women's Test score of 214 runs. She held the Indian innings together after Smriti Mandhana (13) and Punam Raut (four) had fallen early. She made a fifty in the previous match scoring 69 from 114 balls against Australia which ended up in a losing cause. But Veda had other plans.

Deepti Sharma put up a creditable performance too with her off-breaks, claiming two wickets for 26 runs in her six overs. "In the previous World Cups we had not done that, so it was important to fire today", Mithali said, talking about the two consecutive defeats before today's win.

The CoA also wished the team good luck for their semi-final match against Australia on July 20.
