Scorecard

Jhulan Goswami's career-best haul of 6 for 31 wasn't enough to prevent India from slumping to their sixth defeat in seven matches following another uninspiring batting performance against New Zealand. Lucy Doolan made a patient 76 - her maiden ODI half-century - that allowed New Zealand to post 201, a total that India never looked like getting.

Doolan and her captain Suzie Bates (34) - leading the side after an ankle injury ruled out regular captain Aimee Watkins - added 81 for the second wicket after Goswami had struck early to remove Frances Mackay in seamer-friendly conditions. But the rest of the Indian attack accounted for only one wicket and that enabled New Zealand to reach a score that proved to be beyond India's reach.

Unlike India, five of the New Zealand bowlers shared the wickets, ensuring the pressure was squarely on the Indian line-up. Moreover, three of the Indian batsmen who managed to score more than 20 were run-out. Nicola Browne finished with 2 for 39 as India crawled to 162 in 50 overs.
