India slumped to their maiden loss in the ongoing ICC Women's World Cup 2022 after losing to hosts New Zealand by 62 runs at the Seddon Park in Hamilton on Thursday. Opting to bowl first, India made a positive start by removing Suzie Bates early but knocks from Sophie Devine, Amelia Kerr and Amy Satterthwaite kept the hosts going. India pegged back into the match in last 10 overs taking five New Zealand wickets restricting the hosts to 260/9. In reply, Mithali Raj's girls were never in the chase. With the required rate is five-plus per over at the start, the Indians were three wickets down for 50 runs in 19.1 overs. The Ramesh Powar-coached side never took the extra risk as kept on losing wickets making it harder for Harmanpreet Kaur, who was a mere spectator at the other end. Harmanpreet went all guns blazing towards the end but the game was virtually over by then as India were all out for 198. Earlier, India opened thrashed Pakistan by 107 runs in their first match. Indian women had also lost the preceding ODI series against the White Ferns 4-1. Get highlights of IND vs NZ here.

10:56 AM IST: Tahuhu strikes

Leah Tahuhu traps Deepti Sharma plumb in front in her first over. Deepti misses the line completely and the ball hits straight into the pads. Umpire gives not out initially but ultra-edge shows there was no connection with the bat and ball. IND 26/2 (10)

7:20 AM IST: Devine Departs

Pooja Vastrakar did it with the bat against Pakistan. She is doing the job with the ball as well today. Sophie Devine tries to cut a short delivery from Pooja and edged behind the wickets. Devine goes for 35. Massive wicket for India. NZ 54/2 (11)

Mithali Raj (IND): It looks like a good wicket and later on, there could be dew which will make batting easier. Also, we depend a lot on spinners.

6:01 AM IST: Hello

Hello and welcome to the big game between India and hosts New Zealand in the ICC Women's World Cup 202 at the Seddon Park in Hamilton.

This ICC Women's World Cup 2022 has seen some interesting results and New Zealand will be India's first big hurdle in the tournament. Having played a five-match ODI series in Queenstown, both teams have an abundance of knowledge of each other. But it will be a fresh day for both teams and India's facile win against Pakistan will actually count for nothing.

New Zealand women will be playing their third match. New Zealand recovered from a shock loss to the West Indies first up to defeat Bangladesh in a rain-affected game. All-rounder Amy Satterthwaite took three for 25 to restrict Bangladesh to 140 for eight, indicating there is a new lease of life for the 35-year-old at her fourth World Cup.

And with Jhulan Goswami and India captain Mithali Raj on their fifth and sixth tournaments respectively, there is plenty of inspiration in the opposition when it comes to longevity.

Jhulan Goswami is just two wickets away from overtaking Lyn Fullston of Australia as the most prolific wicket-taker at ICC Women’s Cricket World Cups. The veteran right-arm seamer took two for 26 against Pakistan in India’s opening 107-run win to stretch her tally to 38 wickets across five tournaments since 2005.
