India eves win second ODI and clinch series vs New Zealand
The Indian women’s cricket team defeated New Zealand by eight wickets in the second ODI to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.
Smriti Mandhana continued her red-hot form in limited-overs cricket as she single-handedly powered India Women’s Cricket team to a scintillating eight-wicket victory against New Zealand in the second ODI in Oval. Mandhana played an unbeaten match-winning knock of 90* to extend her impressive run for women in blue. She was well supported by captain Mithali Raj, who scored 63* and knitted an unbeaten 136-run stand for the third wicket to give India a comfortable win. It was a massive win and most importantly, under new coach W.V. Raman, the Indian eves have come out all guns blazing to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.
