Chasing the target, India had a shaky start and Smriti Mandhana was dismissed for 6 runs off 21 balls by Jess Kerr. India’s second wicket fell in the form of Deepti Sharma (5). 

New Zealand got this wicket on review. Actually, Deepti was given not-out by the umpire, after which New Zealand took a review. Replays showed that the ball was on the line of off-stump and hit Deepti’s pads. India lost two wickets at 26.

The team could not even recover from the blow that on the very next ball, wicketkeeper Richa Ghosh got bowled without opening an account. The stars of the previous match, Sneh Rana (18) and Pooja Vastrakar were dismissed for 6 runs.
