Devine praised New Zealand batter Amelia Kerr and Amy Satterthwaite for hitting 75 and 50 respectively. She added that the team’s bowling attack was also notable for not giving away many runs to the visitors. New Zealand player Amelia Kerr starred in a full show as she struck fifty and took three wickets as she helped the home side beat India by 62 runs. Indian hitter Harmanpreet Kaur’s sparring shot of 71 went in vain.

“It was a complete performance. We built partnerships throughout, Amelia Kerr and Amy Satterthwaite bowled beautifully. The bowling was outstanding, just gave them nothing at all. We have variety and options with our attack and that allows us to be flexible,” said Sophie Devine in the post-game presentation.

“We won the last game, but it got a bit close. Today was a fuller performance and hopefully we can carry it over to the next game,” she added.

Amy Satterthwaite and Amelia Kerr played brilliant innings of 75 and 50 respectively. For Women in Blue, Pooja Vastrakar scalped four wickets and was involved in a crucial run out, while Rajeshwari Gayakwad dismissed two players.
