K Chandrasekhar Rao hails Mithali Raj for ODI record

Oops: Kohli posts image of another female cricketer to congratulate Mithali Raj

The three spots are taken by hosts England, South Africa and defending champions Australia.

A win in this match will open the gates for both the teams for the semi-finals on Saturday, July 15. India's last ODI World Cup and WT20 campaign also went the same way. Catch live scores and updates from India vs New Zealand in the final group game of the ICC Women's World Cup.

That tally proved nowhere large enough, though, as Australia chased down their target for the loss of just two wickets - skipper Meg Lanning (76no) and Ellyse Perry (60no) sharing an unbroken third-wicket stand of 124 after solid opening contributions from Nicole Bolton (36) and Beth Mooney (45). We really have to improve all over the pitch, especially producing more consistency from how we are bowling and fielding. "But we've got to play well because one of us is going home", Suzie Bates is positive of making it to the semis. The tournament has been brilliant for the players when it comes to individual achievements as well.

"We've played some really good cricket and only lost to England and Australia, so it's not all doom and gloom".

"The way we started, in such a long tournament this can happen". Even though the team has world's leading run-scorer and wicket-taker in the same playing XI, the truth is it has struggled to perform as a unit and this one area where Mithali Raj needs to work.

South Africa: Suzie Bates (c), Rachel Priest (wk), Amy Satterthwaite, Katey Martin, Sophie Devine, Katie Perkins, Maddy Green, Amelia Kerr, Hannah Rowe, Lea Tahuhu, Leigh Kasperek.
