New Zealand bowlers put in a good display to restrict India to 133/8 in 20 overs, with Shafali Verma registering 46 off 34 deliveries. New Zealand had a slow start, losing crucial wickets, eventually Amelia Kerr and Hayley Jensen being left at the end to guide them to a win. New Zealand needed 34 off the last two overs, with Kerr edging them closer, only for Shikha Pandey to wrap things up with a yorker in the final delivery. India win by four runs and have qualified for the semifinals of the ICC Women's T20 Cricket World Cup. Follow here highlights of India Women (IND) Vs New Zealand Women (NZ).

09:03 hrs IST: New Zealand Have won the toss, and elected to bowl first.

08:28 hrs IST: Good evening everyone and welcome to Outlook's live coverage of today's ICC Women's T20 Cricket World Cup match between India and New Zealand. Can India make it three in a row, or will the Black Caps put an end to their winning run?

India, having won both their matches so far in the tournament, set their eyes on the semi-final spot. The win against the hosts and defending champions Australia set the tone, then the Harmanpreet Kaur-led side defeated Bangladesh. But the clash against Sophie Devine's White Ferns at Junction Oval will be a tough one, to say the least. India have lost their last three meetings, last year.

But the last time these two teams met in a World Cup match, at 2018 T20 World Cup, Harmanpreet scored a brilliant century to guide India to 194/5, for a 34-run victory. The skipper, who is having a lean patch, would hope to replicate that form and lead from the front.

A win against New Zealand will take India on the threshold of a knock-out stage spot. They hardly broke a sweat in their 17-run and 18-run wins over Australia and Bangladesh, and are perched at the top of five-team Group A standings with four points from two matches.

New Zealand have played only one match so far, and are on a high after their seven-wicket win over Sri Lanka.

Players to look out for:

Shafali Verma: 16-year-old sensation has been the standout batter with a whirlwind 17-ball 39 against Bangladesh, following her 29 against Australia.

Jemimah Rodrigues: At one-down, India have another youngster, who has also been among the runs with 26 and 34 in the two matches so far.

Poonam Yadav: The bowling department has been led admirably by seasoned leg-spinner -- seven wickets in the first two matches.

Sophie Devine: The skipper led her side from the front with an unbeaten 75 off 55 balls at the top of the order in that win. She, along with Suzie Bates, holds the key.

Squads:

India (from) - Harmanpreet Kaur (capt), Smriti Mandhana, Jemimah Rodrigues, Deepti Sharma, Shafali Verma, Poonam Yadav, Radha Yadav, Taniya Bhatia (wk), Harleen Deol, Rajeshwari Gayakwad, Richa Ghosh, Veda Krishnamurthy, Shikha Pandey, Arundhati Reddy, Pooja Vastrakar.

New Zealand (from) - Sophie Devine (capt), Rosemary Mair, Amelia Kerr, Suzie Bates, Lauren Down, Maddy Green, Holly Huddleston, Hayley Jensen, Leigh Kasperek, Jess Kerr, Katey Martin (wk), Katie Perkins, Anna Peterson, Rachel Priest, Lea Tahuhu.
