ICC Women’s World Cup 2017: Indian eves eye semi-final berth

July 14, 2017

After suffering a crushing eight-wicket loss against Australia in their round-robin match of the ongoing Women’s World Cup, India skipper Mithali Raj has called on her team to step up and improve their performance in what would be a virtual quarter-final against New Zealand on July 15.

Raj made ODI history in Bristol on Wednesday but it was Australia who booked its place in the semi-finals of the prestigious tournament at The County Ground.

India skipper Raj surpassed Charlotte Edwards’s record run total of 5,992 in one-day internationals during her 69, and while Poonam Raut also notched up a century, it was not enough with Meg Lanning and Ellyse Perry unbeaten for Australia on 76 and 60 respectively.

Australia assured itself of advancing along with England and South Africa, who won their respective matches against New Zealand and Sri Lanka.
