Though New Zealand could not get across the line on that occasion, she went on to take 4 wickets, one of three-such hauls she has acquired thus far in her career.

Flush with talent, the performance and outcome was highly disappointing for New Zealand captain Suzie Bates, whose team finish the tournament with three wins, three losses and one abandoned match. But Veda had other plans.

Twitter hailed Indian captain's sixth ODI century.

CoA chairman Vinod Rai said, "I want to extend my heartiest congratulations to Team India's on staging a remarkable comeback in the ICC World Cup".

Should there be no three-way agreement, the vote at the Lima session would be a straightforward selection of only the 2024 host city.


Then came the spinners - especially one named Rajeshwari Gayakwad, who sat in the dugout throughout the tournament, waiting patiently for her chance. Veda's innings towards the end was what India missed in the previous match against the Australians on Wednesday, as the right-hander gave the innings the much-needed acceleration, which included two towering sixes. In reply, New Zealand could only muster a paltry 79. And India couldn't have asked for a better start than when their strike bowlers returned a wicket each in the mandatory powerplay to compliment the batting effort earlier in the day. They lost to Australia in the finals but a year later the team won their first Test series in England. Another big stage and the batters let New Zealand down.

Gayakwad was absolutely brilliant as she picked up five wickets giving away just 15 runs in her 7.3-over spell.

The pacers' disciplined bowling ensured that the pressure started to build very early and Katey Martin became the first victim of spin, failing to clear midwicket off Deepti in the 11th over. Mithali had gone past Englishwoman Charlotte Edwards' record of 5992 runs and also became the first woman cricketer to touch the 6000-run mark.
