The Mithali Raj-led side completed their third victory in the ICC Women’s World Cup 2022 and kept their chances alive of qualifying for the semi-finals. India had suffered defeat to England and Australia in their previous two games which meant that anyhow they had to win their remaining two matches to stay in the competition.

India women’s cricket team will play their final league stage fixture against South Africa on March 27 at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch. If India wins against Sune Luus & co they will automatically reserve their berth in the semis, in case of a loss, they will have to rely on the NRR (net run rate) of their contenders like West Indies (6 points) and England (4 points from five matches).

Chances for Bangladesh, Pakistan and hosts New Zealand to qualify for the knockout stage mathematically seems uncertain.
