White Ferns world cup over

Mithali Raj’s classy 109 – her first century in more than three years and also the first-ever against a top-three nation – was a perfect lesson on batting

New Zealand are playing the quarter final of ICC Women's World cup and it is about to end.

"You can't just give up because you lose one game", said Raj. The final over, however, witnessed a quick fall of wickets with Mithali, Veda and Shikha Pandey (0) going one after the other as India finished at 265/7.

New Zealand Women - Suzie Bates (c), Rachel Priest (w), Amy Satterthwaite, Katey Martin, Sophie Devine, Katie Perkins, Maddy Green, Amelia Kerr, Hannah Rowe, Lea Tahuhu, Leigh Kasperek.

Stylish former India batsman VVS Laxman took to Twitter to congratulate Mithali Raj and her team. In the first three games alone, India dropped eight catches while as many as 15 runs were scored off misfields in the match against Australia.

Raj, who became the first ever woman player to reach the 6000-run mark in ODIs earlier this week, went onto complete the century, her sixth overall in the fifty-overs' format, with a double off the fifth ball of the 48th over.

Veda Krishnamurthy smashed 70 runs off 45 balls and propelled the Indian innings to a sizeable total.

The Wellington leg-spinner and Tawa College student is already making her mark on the cricketing world since debuting for the White Ferns last November, as the second highest wicket taker in the tournament thus far, while the round-robin stage draws to a conclusion.

India were off to a disastrous start, losing the early wickets of Smriti Mandana (13) and Punam Raut (4) to find themselves tottering at a precarious 21/2 by the eighth over.

The Indian women's team spun a web around New Zealand to secure a thumping win in all the important clash at County Ground, Derby on Saturday.

The 26-year-old finished with 5/15 in her 7.3 overs while Deepti Sharma picked two wickets. The entry of India into the semi-final of an ICC event is its first since 2010.
