Led by a brilliant century from skipper Mithali Raj and a fifer from Rajeshwari Gayakwad, India beat New Zealand by 186 runs to reach the last four of the ICC Women's World Cup 2017 in County Ground, Derby. In a must-win encounter, New Zealand invited India to bat first on a tricky surface. After losing the openers cheaply, India skipper Mithali Raj (109) knitted crucial partnerships with Harmanpreet Kaur (60) and Veda Krishnamurthy (70) to take India to a solid total of 265/7 in 50 overs. Mithali continued her fine form and scored her 6th ODI hundred.

New Zealand chase got off to a poor start as India Pacers -  Goswami and Pandey remove their openers cheaply. India left no room for recovery from there on as they kept chipping away with important wickets. Spinners - Rajeshwari Gayakwad produced a special bowling performance as she picked up her first five-wicket haul. Deepti Sharma also picked up two crucial wickets in the middle. The woman in blue put up their best bowling performance in this tourney i na do-or-die clash.
