11.3 fuller ball outside the off stump and well flighted. Smriti is drawn into the drive and is well out of her crease. She is beaten in flight. She knows she has to go and the third umpire agrees. It was an easy decision as she was galloping down the track and was beaten 38/2
    4.4 the constant line has finally frustrated Poonam. She looks to go over mid-off and fails to connect. She is bowled. Brilliant line by Tahuhu. A plan that worked to perfection! 15/1
    15.3 and the release has come! She skips down the track and smashes a full-toss to short midwicket. Perkins pulls out a sensational effort by diving to her right. That was a stunner! Reminiscent of Mark Waugh's catch at Chennai off VVS Laxman 44/3
    16.5 with the fielder out at deep square-leg, the bowler has the batsman thinking of a short ball. She pulls a fast one on her as she bowls a fuller off cutter and hits her pads in line with the stumps. She just had to appeal for the umpire to raise his finger. Brilliant bowling this 46/4
    19.4 on the leg stump. Kaur, with the confidence of a boundary hit off the previous ball, wants to sweep and only manages to get a faint edge, off the glove, which is taken by the keeper. Kaur is angry with herself. 52/5
    21.5 can't quite understand the way batsman are getting dismissed. They get into a shell and seek a release. The release comes in the form of a sweep shot here and she misses. The line was middle stump and it was hitting the stumps. Poor batting by Veda Krishnamurthy 55/6
    44.3 that'a a fuller ball on the middle stump. Jhulan is making room to slog it across. She is beaten and the middle stump goes for a roll 142/10
    26.1 another wicket off a full toss! It was on the middle stump line and all that Sneh Rana did was to pull straight into the hands of Broadmore at deep midwicket. After moving a couple of steps forward, all Broadmore had to do was to bend a little to take an easy catch. This is poor batting from Indian batsmen. The umpires checked for a waist high no-ball and it was found to be a normal delivery 71/7
    30.2 full toss and what would you expect? A wicket! Ekta looks to pull and gets a top edge to the right of the short fine-leg fielder. Satterthwaite pulls off a good catch 87/8
    36.3 a soft dismissal there. Kalpana drives a fuller ball straight into the hands of the captain at short cover. Relief for Indian fans that the wicket was not off a full toss 113/9

    19.3 fuller ball on the middle stump. She looks to slog it across the line and is beaten. She is bowled and leaves her team in tatters 45/4
    5.4 struck in line with the middle stump and there's no turn on that! Ekta gets the first wicket as Rachel doesn't trouble the scorers 6/1
    9.2 fuller ball outside the off stump. Satterthwaite drives it straight into the hands of Smriti Mandhana at short cover 20/2
    16.5 short ball on the leg stump. Bates pulls and wants a double. Kate is not too sure about it and hesitates. She is run out 38/3
    34.2 short ball outside the off stump. Devine cuts it straight into the hands of Ekta Bist at point. New Zealand, just when they were looking to take off are set back by that wicket 91/6
    27.5 outside the off stump and jags back in sharply. Struck in front of the middle stump. India, well and truly back into the match now. They are the favourites to win this match 71/5
    not out
    38.3 fuller ball on the off stump. Peterson attempts a ugly hoick and misses. She is bowled 103/7
    41.1 full toss on the off stump. Green looks to flick it and gets a leading edge back to the bowler. The match is slowly slipping out of New Zealand's grasp 110/8
    42.4 steers it to point and wants to set off for a quick single. Tahuhu is well short of her crease as the throw from point comes screaming in 114/9
    45.3 and it's all over. Mithali takes the catch at cover to signal the end of New Zealand innings. What a win for India Women. The scanty crowd makes their presence felt by whistling for the home team 125/10

Match Notes

  • 'A fantastic wicket to bat on' - Goswami

    Jhulan Goswami, the top-scorer of the match, called the track "fantastic" for batting, adding that it was an ideal wicket for one-day cricket

  • Spinners, Goswami shine as India defend 142

    The New Zealand batsmen huffed and puffed, and eventually fell short of their target of 143 by 17 runs, unable to tackle the Indian spinners in the first women's ODI in Bangalore

  • India look to gather steam for WC qualification

    The two teams languishing at the bottom of the ICC Women's Championship will square off for three ODIs in round three, as a part of the five-match series in Bangalore, to fight for crucial points to climb their way up the points table

  • Bates banks on familiarity of conditions

    New Zealand Women captain Suzie Bates feels familiarity with the conditions has provided them with the required knowledge and knowhow to win the upcoming ODI series against India in Bangalore
