India Women tour of New Zealand: Riding on the fifties from Smriti Mandhana, Harmanpreet Kaur, and Mithali Raj, India women gunned down a 252-run target in the 5th ODI with ease and avoided a clean sweep of the ODI series.
The big guns, Smriti Mandhana, Mithali Raj, and Harmanrpeet Kaur stepped up as India ended the ODI series with a 1-4 scoreline. It was also the first win for India on their tour of New Zealand after 5 successive defeats, including the one in the lone T20I.
India needed to arrest the slide with less than 2 weeks left for their Women’s World Cup 2022 campaign and the win on Thursday will certainly give Mithali Raj’s side a boost in confidence.
While opener Smriti Mandhana, who returned to the XI for the first time in New Zealand only in the last match after an extended stay in isolation, found her rhythm as she set the tone for the solid chase.
