IndW vs NZW, Guyana

India Women won by 34 runs

NZW - 160/9 (20 Ovs)
IndW - 194/5 (20 Ovs)

Summary Scorecard

In the end, with 44 to win off the last over, it really was pretty one-sided. India will take a lot of heart from this start in the tournament, but they will certainly be wary of peaking too early and getting complacent in this short tournament - even a single bad day can cost you. NZ, on the other hand, will need to reflect on this performance, particularly with the ball, and perhaps avoid looking like they're out of options in three days time when they play Australia. Still early days, so there's a lot of scope for redemption. Head over to the second game of the triple-header as Australia and Pakistan take on each other in less than 2 hours. For now, the trio consisting of Abhinand, Praveen and Rishi bids you goodbye - for about 90 minutes. We'll be back. Soon.

Amy Satterthwaite, NZ captain: We had seen their key players in the competitions around the world, so we know their team pretty well. To be honest, we got outplayed today. Tahuhu was fantastic in the beginning, that's what she's there for. Really disappointed with how we failed to execute plans today. Fantastic innings by Harman, but need to have answers to counter something like that. I don't think the decision to not take the DRS early was poor - they weren't really howlers so we didn't want to use them up. It's hard when you've tried all your options, and it wasn't until the end of the innings that we finally did something right. I told them that we needed to be clear on our plan when we went out to chase the total. Actually I'm really proud of the way the girls played today, they showed a lot of confidence and it'll be good for us going forward. We have three days now to rest and reflect so that we can come back better against Australia.

Harmanpreet Kaur, Player of the Match and India captain: Excited, but it is just the beginning, still a long way to go. There are a lot of areas we need to improve. As a team, we need to improve a lot. I knew if I settle down, I can go for my shots. Jemimah played really well. When you are hitting well, you need someone who can rotate the strike. Credit goes to her, she also played really well. She is very mature. As a bowling unit, we need to improve. We need to improve in the first six overs. Yesterday I had a bit of fever, feeling really well after winning the game. (On coach Ramesh Powar) Winning and losing is part of the game. The time he arrived, our mindset changed and that's a plus point. He has a lot of experience and that is helping us. We are really happy to have him in the team. Mithali is one of our key players. She hasn't scored much in the first six overs. If she bats later, she can get the runs. We are happy the way she helps us. She (Jemimah Rodrigues) likes to express herself and never takes pressure. We need young players who are excited to play international cricket.

14:07 Local Time, 18:07 GMT, 23:37 IST: Wow, that was a bit one-sided wasn't it? Utter domination by the Indian women today. They've announced themselves in this tournament, and they ain't no pushovers fellas! Harmanpreet and Jemimah, still in the post-Diwali hangover, put on a display of fireworks here in Guyana to get India to the highest total in WWT20 history. Jemimah played the supporting role, whereas Harman, the star of the show, brought up the first ever hundred for India in T20Is. The Kiwis needed to produce something special, and they were in the hunt initially with a quick 52-run opening partnership. The spinners, though, brought about a top-order collapse after that, they started to improvise as opposed to sticking to percentage cricket, and it was only a matter of time before they succumbed to the scoreboard pressure.
