Openers Punam Raut and Smriti Mandhana have exactly two noticeable knocks each, but a dry spell otherwise has directly impacted the batting that follows.
Mithali, who became the highest One-day Internationals (ODI) run-getter in women's cricket during the match against the Southern Stars on Wednesday, failed to take her team home despite scoring a fighting 69. They began with a fine win over one of the favourites, hosts England, and then scored wins of the Pakistan, the West Indies and Sri Lanka and looked on top of the world with four straight wins.
Yet both teams will need to bounce back from defeats in the penultimate round of pool matches, where New Zealand lost by 75 runs to England and India were beaten by eight wickets by Australia. Despite a strong start to the ICC World Cup 2017 tournament, India's collapse to South Africa and Australia in the last two matches has put a dent on India's chances of moving forward. With the ball, Jhulan Goswami has lacked penetration, taking four wickets in six games at an economy of 4.7 (joint highest among fast bowlers) in the tournament.
