Woeful White Ferns crash out of World Cup

Oops: Kohli posts image of another female cricketer to congratulate Mithali Raj

A section of the Indian fans during India's match against New Zealand in the Women's World Cup at Derby. In bowling section, Rajeshwari Gayakwad took 4 wickets in just 8 overs and gives only 15 runs.

"On behalf of the BCCI, I congratulate Indian Women Team for qualifying into Semifinals of Women World Cup 2017".

Only three New Zeland batswomen made it to double figures with vice captain Amy Satterthwaite top scoring on 26. It was only the previous match that she broke the record of former England player Charlotte Edwards and became the highest run scorer in Women's ODI and also reached 6,000 ODI runs.

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.

White Ferns captain Suzie Bates won the toss and Invited India bat first.

However, New Zealand's plans to run through the Indian middle order were dashed as Veda Krishnamurthy counterattacked, with Raj continuing to play sheet anchor's role from the other end. Veda spared neither New Zealand's best spinner, Kerr, nor two of their experienced pacers - Bates and Tahuhu - in her 45-ball carnage that included seven boundaries and two towering sixes. If it is a very crucial game in the T20s, the World Cup, or even just that dictates a series win, we tend to fall down in that match.

Smriti Mandhana, Punam Raut, Deepti Sharma and Raj have all been in good touch through the tournament but the batting lineup has not clicked together, except in the opener when they scored 281.

However, Kohli made a mistake by posting an image of another India women's player instead of his female counterpart, Times Now reported.

There was no respite for New Zealand batters as India kept Chipping way with the wickets.
