Lea Tahuhu201417.0062010
2.2 to S Mandhana, dragged on! 111kph, very full outside off, a touch of late shape back in, she played a gentle square drive, not full-blooded, got a thick inside edge and dragged it onto off stump! Big wicket for Tahuhu and New Zealand. 17/1
Rosemary Mair302729.0094100
9.1 to T Bhatia, caught at backward point 109kph, back of a length wide of off, she backed away and hammered a cut but didn't hit it up or down, just hit it flat to Amelia Kerr who took a comfortable head high catch. 68/2
11.1 to JI Rodrigues, a massive slice of luck for New Zealand, but they won't be complaining! It was a nothing delivery, full and drifting on to the pads of Jemimah who had looked a million dollars so far, turned the face of the bat a bit early on the flick and ended up skying it to backward point off a leading edge. 80/3
Sophie Devine201216.0051010
17.1 to DB Sharma, wickets continue to tumble! Drevine comes on and strikes straight away, it was a length ball angled across, Deepti went down on one knee and connected well on the slog sweep but unfortunately for India, picked out the fielder at deep midwicket. 111/7
Anna Peterson201909.5040200
Hayley Jensen302006.6671100
Amelia Kerr402125.25123000
13.5 to Shafali Verma, oh Shafali, what have you done? Holes out to long-off! It was tossed up around middle and off, Shafali, keen to keep things moving despite the wickets takes on long-off on an inside out lofted drive, doesn't get all of it as she has to reach for it a little, and India are losing their way here. 95/5
15.3 to V Krishnamurthy, appeal for lbw turned down, New Zealand review! It was length around middle and leg, she went for the sweep and missed a straight one, perhaps the umpire thought it was missing leg or that there was some bat, neither was the case the replays confirm and three reds mean India lose their sixth and New Zealand are well on top. 104/6
Leigh Kasperek401914.7580010
12.6 to H Kaur, soft dismissal! A rather innocuous delivery, full around off, just under the bat but a tentative Harmanpreet Kaur gives catching practice to Leigh Kasperek, chips it back meekly, and another failure for the India captain, New Zealand have clawed their way back here. 93/4

Deepti Sharma402716.75103000
5.4 to SW Bates, played on trying to paddle sweep! Bates stepped way outside off early, Sharma had time to slow the pace up, Bates had to wait and couldn't use the pace, she just paddled it off the bottom edge onto the stumps! Well bowled. 30/2
Shikha Pandey402115.25112000
1.4 to RH Priest, caught at midwicket! Radha holds onto a towering sky ball. A full ball on middle, she tried to launch this over midwicket, got under it and hit it straight up, it swirls on the breeze but Radha holds her nerve and takes the catch comfortably. 13/1
Rajeshwari Gayakwad402215.50144000
14.2 to ML Green, down the track and stumped, massive wicket for India! Saw Green advance early, shortened the length and pushed it wide, and the keeper was ready to whip off the bails as she missed the slog across the line.. 77/4
Poonam Yadav403218.0085000
8.1 to SFM Devine, full toss sliced to backward point! Just 57kph, tossed up high outside off, she advanced but it just got away from her a touch as it was very wide, she swung hard but just sliced it off a thick outside edge to backward point! Simple catch. Poonam Yadav does it again!. 34/3
Radha Yadav402516.25122110
16.3 to KJ Martin, holes out to deep midwicket! This was full drifting into the hitting arc, she advances and lofts powerfully to deep midwicket but hasn't hit it well enough and Rodrigues takes the catch a metre inside the rope!. 90/5
