New Zealand Women210/5(47.4 overs)

New Zealand win by 5 wickets. Handshakes all around, good effort by New Zealand Women to pull this one off. India Women's performance on the field was terrible, dropped catches, misfields and run outs missed. Amita Sharma was the only one who did well on the field with two catches to her name.

Goswami: "It was a decent score, the fielding let us down."

Tiffen: "We put the ball in the right areas. We were nervous going about the run chase but we did well."

Kate Pulford is the Player-of-the-Match for her knock of 71 runs.

Thanks for being with us, we hope you have enjoyed our coverage, do join us again on thursday, until then this is Binoy George and along with Gopi signing off.
