NZ Women beat IND Women in 4th ODI: Records broken
The New Zealand women's cricket team beat India Women in the fourth ODI on Tuesday. India Women remain winless in the tour, having earlier lost the one-off T20I. The White Ferns have taken a 4-0 lead in the ODI series. The match was reduced to 20 overs per side due to rain. NZ managed 191/5 as India were bowled out for a paltry 128.

She was unbeaten on 68, helping NZ Women post 191/5. Renuka Singh (2/33) was India's best bowler. In response, Richa Ghosh's 52 wasn't enough as India Women surrendered.
- India Women have been dismal on this tour of New Zealand and the losses have been telling.
- The manner of losses are also problematic ahead of the 2022 Women's World Cup.
- The major issue is regarding the bowlers who have leaked runs consistently.
- For the White Ferns, the experimentation has been fruitful.
- The players have also ticked the right boxes so far.
