Hosts New Zealand Women would be taking on India Women in the 8th game of the ICC Women's World Cup 2022. New Zealand Women come into this contest with a massive win against Bangladesh Women. The side has regained confidence after their loss against West Indies in the first game. India Women also registered a big win against Pakistan Women in their opening game.
India Women have had a poor record against New Zealand in New Zealand. They have managed just one victory in the last six games they have played here. Their batters have struggled in these conditions. However, the side has several matchwinners in the side and this would make the contest exciting.
Sophie Devine’s side has made a strong comeback to the tournament after having gone down against West Indies Women in their opening game. In a one-sided contest, they defeated Bangladesh Women by 9 wickets banking on the good performance of their bowlers. They meet a stronger opponent in India and Devine would want her players to be in their top form.
Openers Sophie Devine and Suzie Bates have scored runs in the tournament and they would need to set up a good stand at the top. The middle order is strong with the trio of Amelia Kerr, Amy Satterthwaite, and Maddy Green having experience. Katey Martin and Frances Mackay are powerful hitters, and the side would like to see quick runs from them in the game.
Their bowlers will have to bowl tight lines with the new ball. Lea Tahuhu and Jess Kerr must get early wickets to deliver setbacks to the Indians. Satterthwaite did well in the last game, and she will need to keep the scoring rate under check with Hayley Jensen and Kerr as the Indian lower middle order has looked in great form.

Mithali Raj would be happy to have won the game by a margin of 107 runs against Pakistan Women. The side has got an initial scare with a batting collapse but won it riding on its lower middle order and good show from the bowlers. They don’t have a good record in New Zealand and Raj would look to change that with a good performance in this game.
Smriti Mandhana did well in the last game and the side would need a good performance from her and Shafali Verma. Deepti Sharma did well but the side would look for runs from Raj and Harmanpreet Kaur who failed in the last game. Sneha Rana and Pooja Vastrakar stitched a match winning partnership in the last game, and they add to side’s strength lower down the order with Richa Ghosh.
Jhulan Goswami was splendid with the ball in the last game, and she would look to strike early with Meghna Singh. Rajeshwari Gayakwad would be confident after her 4-wicket haul in the last game. Sneha Rana and Deepti Sharma wouldn’t find much from the surface, and they will need to use their skills well.

The weather conditions would be slightly overcast at Hamilton on March 10. The wicket is expected to play well as it did in the last game and batters are likely to find it easy on this surface. Bowlers would have to come up with good spells to do well at this venue. A score of 250 odd runs batting first should have the team confidence to defend it.
Seddon Park, Hamilton is a typical New Zealand wicket where there is assistance for the fast bowlers. However, the ball comes onto the bat nicely and this allows batters to play their strokes and score runs. Spinners must rely on their variations as there isn’t much of assistance for them from the surface.
More than 600 runs were scored in the last game that was played here. Batting conditions were excellent, and we expect to see a similar kind of surface in this game. The side winning the toss here wouldn’t have hesitation to bat first.
India Women have two problems heading into this game. Their middle order has looked weak since the warmup games and secondly their record against New Zealand has been poor. The side would need to come up with a great effort to win the game here. New Zealand Women have good knowledge of the conditions and have done well against India at home in the past. This would put them ahead of India Women in this game.
