Imperious performance from NZ. They completely outplayed India. Watkins batted superbly to set up a competitive score before their bowlers were outstanding in the execution of their plans. A high percentage of yorkers, slower ones and rarely, did they bowl any loose deliveries. Ian O'Brien applauds from the stands. The two teams shake hands.

Goswami: "145 was hard but the wicket was good. If we our top-order batters had played for 20 overs it would have been chaseable. We didn't get a good start and that's why we ended up behind. Our girls have played superbly in the tournament but. We have learned lots of things and it will help us in the future."

Player of the Match - Watkins, the NZ captain: "It was a good to put in a complete performance together, some thing we haven't done through this tournament. The cricket gods were with me and I am loving it. Everything I tried came off. The wicket was pretty good. We are excited to be at Lord's, the home of cricket. Watch out for us!"

That's it from us. Thanks for logging on. Catch you later, for the Men's semi-final.
