India's women cricketer Mithali Raj breaks another record as she becomes the first Indian cricketer to go past 1,000 runs in ICC Women's World Cup 2017.

Although at this stage, India couldn't have asked for a better opponent than the ones who have oddly flunked at crucial junctures in all ICC events since finishing runners-up in 2010 World T20. She has, no doubt, been an inspiration for a generation of women in worldwide cricket for her consistency and longevity.

New Zealand: New Zealand fielded their strongest XI against England in the previous fixture at the same venue and, irrespective of result, shouldn't ideally be making any changes to that line-up. India have 8 points from 6 matches while New Zealand have 7.

The 16-year-old Ameliia Kerr has 10 wickets in the tournament.

And when Rajeshwari Gayakwad - playing her first match of the tournament - bagged a fiver, the Kiwis were all but out.

Derby: Indian skipper Mithali Raj's ton (109 off 123 balls) and Veda Krishnamurthy's quickfire 70 from 45 balls guided India to 265/7 in a must-win encounter against New Zealand at the County Ground in Derby on Saturday. She scored an unbeaten 114 runs on her debut. Krishnamurthy was there to give impetus to the Indian innings towards the close and she was by far the most aggressive batswomen as she was always looking for big shots. She also has another world record of making most fifties in women one-day global cricket.
