Clinical India outshine NZ to march into Women's World Cup semis

IANS  |  Derby 

The Indian women's cricket team thrashed by 186 runs to storm into the semi-finals of the ongoing Women's World Cup at the County Ground here on Saturday.

Skipper Mithali Raj's scintillating century set the tone as posted a healthy 265/7 before left-arm spinner Rajeshwari Gayakwad's maiden fifer (5/15) bundled out the White Ferns for a paltry 79.

The New Zealanders found themselves three-down in the 11th over and after a brief, ineffective resistance from Amy Satterthwaite and Sophie Devine, they crumbled under pressure.

have now joined Australia, England and South Africa as the four semi-finalists of this year's World Cup.
