A brilliant century from skipper Mithali Raj, alongside a five-wicket from spinner Rajeshwari Gayakwad, helped India thrash New Zealand by 188 runs and enter the semi-finals of the ongoing ICC Women's World Cup. I would also like to congratulate our captain Mithali Raj, who scored a match-winning hundred, on leading by example in a must-win game.

Brief scores: India 265/7 in 50 overs (Mithali Raj 109, Veda Krishnamurthy 70, Harmanpreet Kaur 60; Leigh Kasperek 3-45) beat New Zealand 79 all out in 25.3 overs (Amy Satterthwaite 26; Rajeshwari Gayakwad 5-15, Poonam Yadav 2-25) by 186 runs.

India must win against New Zealand if they wish to make it to the knockouts of the ICC Women's World Cup 2017. Lying at the fourth spot on the points table, Mithali Raj-led Indian team will look to break the put their best foot forward after two consecutive losses in the prestigious event.

In a losing cause against England the other night, she picked up 4 for 51, and it is that ability to take wickets and show no fear for which her captain Suzie Bates is full of praise. The middle order, especially the attacking Harmanpreet Kaur, will also have to take up more responsibility if the top order falls short once again.

The 34-year-old cricketer belongs to a Tamil family but was born in Jodhpur. Veda's innings towards the end was what India missed in the previous match against the Australians on Wednesday, as the right-hander gave the innings the much-needed acceleration, which included two towering sixes.

India reached the World Cup final for the first time in 2005 under her leadership. 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.
