India v New Zealand

India v New Zealand

Mithali Raj is the second highest run scorer in the tournament for India with 247 runs in six matches while Raut leads the pack with 277 runs from six matches.

Chandrashekhar Rao congratulated Cricketer Mithali Raj for breaking the records as the highest runs scored women cricketer in the one-day format of the game and for scoring 6,000 runs so far. After inconsistent pacers and misfiring allrounders, the absolutely last thing India wanted was a chaos in the batting department. Despite earning the tag of pre-tournament favourites, the desperate need to better their recent record in World Cups can bring in extra pressure and New Zealand would be cautious to not let that deny them another shot at glory. Mithali is in good form but she needs to watch her strike rate in order to get India to a big score or keep the required run rate in check while chasing. If it is a very crucial game in the T20s, the World Cup, or even just that dictates a series win, we tend to fall down in that match.

Rafa Benitez has already lost out on keeper Willy Caballero to Chelsea and failed to sign Pepe Reina from Napoli. The London team have reportedly beaten Newcastle to Hart and are close to finalising a deal.

Raj made ODI history in Bristol on Wednesday but it was Australia who booked its place in the semi-finals of the prestigious tournament at The County Ground. Placed fourth in the points table, India take on New Zealand in a do-or-die game against New Zealand. "That's what makes world champions", she said. If we perform again like against Australia it will not be enough.

The CM also wished that the Indian women's cricket team achieve greater heights under her leadership. "We know that if we beat India on Saturday, then we get to stay here".
