The Indian openers got off to a terrible start in their attempt to chase down the score. Smriti Mandhana, their top opener, was out early in the innings, and the squad never really got going in the chase. Harmanpreet Kaur, who scored 71 off 63 balls, was India’s solitary bright spot with the bat before the team was dismissed for 198, losing the game by 62 runs.

After losing against New Zealand, India has slid to fifth place:
