The Indian women's team continued their splendid run at the T20 World Cup at Down Under as India defeated New Zealand by 4 runs. Defending a target of 133 the spinners once again did their part in stemming the flow of runs. However, Amelia Kerr held her nerve to bring the equation down to 5 runs off the last delivery with her 19-ball 34 but could not see her side through as New Zealand suffered a heart-breaking 4-run defeat.
Radha Yadav, who was playing her first game in the tournament, made contributions in all the three departments, as she finished with figures of 1 for 25 and scored 9-ball 14 with the bat to take India past 130. With yet another middle-order collapse, India started losing their way to squander a strong start. Though her partners failed to elongate their stay at the crease, Shafali kept finding the boundaries until she lost her wicket in the process. In the end, it was Yadav's 9 -ball cameo which proved to be the big difference at the end.
