NZ vs IND: Suzie Bates, Amy Satterthwaite, and Jess Kerr star as hosts win 1st ODI

NZ vs IND: New Zealand defeated India by 62 runs in the opening ODI of the five-match series at the John Davies Oval in Queenstown on Saturday. Suzie Bates, Amy Satterthwaite, and Jess Kerr were the standout performers.

New Zealand has taken a 1-0 lead in the five-match series, and the second ODI will be played on Monday at the same location. India’s chase for 276 runs got off to a shaky start when opening batsmen Sabbhineni Meghana (4) and Shafali Verma (12) were removed for only 17 runs. The skipper Mithali Raj and Yastika Bhatia then joined forces at the crease and put on a third-wicket stand of 88 runs.

Mithali scored her 50 points, whereas Yastika only scored 41. With quick wickets and Mithali’s (59) departure in the 31st over, New Zealand roared back into the game. India was reduced to 139/5 in the 33rd over, still needing 137 runs to win. Harmanpreet Kaur (10) faltered with the bat once more, as India was reduced to 139/5 in the 33rd over.

India continued to lose wickets at regular intervals, and New Zealand won the first ODI by a comfortable margin of 62 runs.
