Australia registered a comprehensive 141-run win over arch-rivals New Zealand at the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup in Wellington on Sunday. In a dominant performance, the record six-time world champions defended 269/8 as they bowled their opponents out for just 128 at Basin Reserve. There were two spectacular catches taken during the game, which caught the attention of cricket fans. The first was by New Zealand’s Maddy Green, who ran to her left from long on and took an acrobatic catch to dismiss Australia’s Ellyse Perry off the bowling of Lea Tahuhu.

Watch Maddy Green’s catch here:

Later in the game, New Zealand’s Amelia Kerr edged a Darcie Brown delivery towards the slip cordon.

Australia’s Beth Mooney dived to her right to take a low, one-handed catch.

Watch Beth Mooney’s catch below:

Meanwhile, there were strong contributions from nearly every member of Meg Lanning’s powerful side, with Perry (68) and Tahlia McGrath (57) scoring valuable half-centuries and the returning Ashleigh Gardner (48* from just 18 balls) adding the finishing touches on a late Australian flurry with the bat.

But it was with the ball that the Australians really shone, as teenager Brown (3/22) ripped through the New Zealand top-order and Amanda-Jade Wellington (2/34) and Gardner (2/15) put the polish on an impressive team performance.

The result sees Australia regain their place at the top of tournament standings with three wins from as many matches, while New Zealand drop to fourth and remain in a battle to reach the semi-finals.

ICC Women’s World Cup, West Indies vs India: Senior Players Need To Take More Responsibility, Says India Coach Ramesh Powar After New Zealand Defeat

[ad_1]

“Surprised” by the lack of intent shown by the Indian top-order in the loss against New Zealand, head coach Ramesh Powar has urged the team’s senior players to take more responsibility starting with the ICC Women’s World Cup match against West Indies, on Saturday. The Indian top-order failed to fire once again as the Mithali Raj-led side scored just 50 runs off 20 overs while chasing 261 to eventually suffer a 62-run loss against hosts New Zealand on Thursday. “I think it was one of those days where things didn’t go our way and honestly I was also surprised the way we batted 20 overs,” Powar said at the virtual pre-match conference on the eve of the team’s game against West Indies.

“And if you look back (at the) last six games, which we have played against New Zealand, we were executing our plans well.”

Powar said the team has been given ample opportunities to practice in the lead up to the tournament and it is now time to deliver.

“I want seniors to be putting their hand up, like Mithali (Raj), Smriti (Mandhana), Jhulan (Goswami), and win us the games single-handedly, because their participation and contributions in the win will brush off on the younger players,” said Powar.

“I think it is the pressure of the World Cup but I don’t want to give any excuses. This is the right time to put your hand up and put up the performances.

“We have been training for last six months, we have been to England, Australia, we have been to New Zealand early, so we have got every practice opportunity which was needed, so it is time as a group to stand up and deliver,” added Powar.

The former spinner also urged the top five batters in the side to be more consistent.

“Going forward, I expect her (Harmanpreet Kaur) to be consistent and I expect everyone from the top five to be consistent.”

India next meet an in-form West Indies side, which has already upset defending champions England and host New Zealand in their opening two matches.

The coach stressed on the need to show intent in the first 10 overs.

“(Sneh) Rana and Pooja (Vastrakar) are part of team India and we have been working hard on each and every player – be it pure batter or the all-rounder.

“These things will happen when the top three-four will struggle (and) bottom three will perform it is a team game, where someone has to cover for someone, everyone will not perform every game.

“Going forward it is important to show some intent when you bat in the first 10 overs,” said the former India spinner.

“And if you look around this World Cup, chasing is not easy but it was a good wicket to chase upon and we have messed up in the first 20 overs where I was expecting momentum and intent,” he stated.

Promoted

Vice-captain Harmanpreet Kaur is back amongst runs after enduring a rough patch and Powar is confident the right-hander is cable of winning matches single-handed.

“If someone is out of form, that player is getting into form, I am happy. I was never disappointed when she was out of form, because I know what kind of player she is, I have coached her in 2018 and I know her capabilities, she can win you games single-handedly,” said Powar.

Women’s World Cup: Lacklustre India Surrender To New Zealand By 62 Runs

[ad_1]

An inept batting performance by India led to an all-too familiar surrender against New Zealand as the Mithali Raj-led side went down by 62 runs in its second league stage match of the ICC Women’s World Cup here on Thursday. New Zealand, who have dominated the Indians throughout this summer, didn’t let anything change in a familiar script by first scoring a healthy 260 for 9. They then choked the ‘Women in Blue’ before bowling them out for only 198 in 46.4 overs.

India have now slipped to fifth among eight teams after this defeat while New Zealand, with two wins from three games, are now second behind Australia in the overall standings.

Puja Vastrakar’s 4 for 34 in 10 overs and Harmanpreet Kaur’s 71 off 62 balls were two isolated performances which hardly made any impact on the larger outcome.

While Vastrakar’s four-for could still be credited for stopping New Zealand’s total from going north of 280, Harmanpreet’s runs might just help her regain confidence for the coming games.

Amelia Kerr (50 and 3/56 in 9 overs), one half of the famous Kerr sisters, first laid the platform with a solid half century and then breached the defences of rival skipper Mithali Raj (31 off 56 balls) with a flighted delivery.

Her fast googly dismissed Richa Ghosh (0) off the successive delivery to make it virtually impossible for India.

Towards the end, she also snapped up Harmanpreet to make it a perfect all-round performance. Seamers Lea Tahuhu (3/17 in 10 overs) and Hayley Jensen (3/30 in 6.4 overs) shared the other scalps.

The pursuit of 261 started on a discordant note with Smriti Mandhana (6 off 21 balls), Yastika Bhatia (28 off 59 balls) and Deepti Sharma (5 off 13 balls) unable find ways to rotate the strike.

Mithali’s struggles have been well documented and it’s not getting any better in her last tournament for India.

Even more baffling was coach Ramesh Powar’s strategy of sending three left-handers (out of form Shafali Verma was dropped) with home team skipper Sophie Devine giving the new ball to off-break bowler Frances Mackay (8-1-25-0), who would take it away from left-handers.

The figures don’t seem exceptional but much like what Deepak Patel did for men’s team in 1992, Mackay bowled as many as 27 dot balls in those first 15 overs to choke the flow of runs.

India haven’t found a way to counter New Zealand and in past one month, have lost five of the six WODIs against the White Ferns.

The game could be divided into two sets of first 20 overs where the two teams batted.

In case of New Zealand, the first 20 overs yielded 117 runs for the loss of just two wickets while India, in their response, painfully reached 50 for 3 in their share of 20.

Promoted

The difference was 67 and if one looks at the margin of victory for ‘White Ferns’, it won’t be very difficult to gauge why things went downhill for Mithali’s team.

New Zealand’s batting has four pillars — Suzie Bates (5), skipper Devine (35), No. 3 Kerr (50) and No. 4 Amy Satterthwaite (75) and three performed on the day.

After beating Pakistan in their opening game earlier this week, India are currently taking on hosts New Zealand in the ongoing Women’s World Cup at the Seddon Park in Hamilton. After electing to bowl first, India got off to the best possible start as New Zealand star opener Suzie Bates got herself run-out while trying to steal a single. However, the early breakthrough was all down to the brilliance of Pooja Vastrakar, who made a direct hit into the stumps from the point region.

Vastrakar then struck in her first over to dismiss New Zealand skipper Sophie Devine, who had steadied the Kiwis’ ship after the early dismissal of Bates.

Bates and Amelia Kerr had added 45 runs for the second wicket before the former had nicked one behind for Richa Ghosh off Vastrakar’s delivery.

Earlier, India won their opening encounter of the tournament against Pakistan by 107 runs at the Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui to start their campaign on a high.

Smriti Mandhana, Sneh Rana and Pooja Vastrakar scored half-centuries each to propel India to a total of 244/7 in 50 overs.

Defending the 245-run target, Indian bowlers bowled brilliantly to skittle out Pakistan for 137.

Promoted

Rajeshwari Gayakwad was the pick of the bowlers for India, having taken four wickets while Sneh Rana and Jhulan Goswami also took two wickets each.

Vastrakar was named ‘Player of the Match’.

    Mithali Raj, India captain at the toss: “We’ll have a bowl. Looks a good wicket and later on, there could be dew which will make batting easier. Also we depend a lot on spinners, so better to bowl first. One change – Yastika replaces Shafali at the top.”
