A sixth career century by Mitahli Raj and a maiden five-for by left-arm spinner Rajeshwari Gayakwad steered India into its third ICC Women’s World Cup semi-final with a convincing 186-run victory over New Zealand on the last day of the round matches in Derby on Saturday.

India’s victory and South Africa’s 59-run loss to Australia in Taunton meant India finished third on the points table behind host England and defending champion Australia (England finished ahead of Australia on Net Run-Rate). South Africa ended up fourth, while New Zealand, West Indies, Sri Lanka and Pakistan finished in the second half of the eight-team tournament and will now take early flights home.

Fellow opener Beth Mooney (32) fell not long after leaving Australia on the back foot, but it was captain Meg Lanning (48) and Ellyse Perry (71) who steadied the ship.

In Bristol, 2000 champion New Zealand eased to a comfortable nine-wicket victory over Sri Lanka to open up its bid for the ICC Women’s World Cup title in fine style.

Chamari Polgampala (49) and Chamari Athapaththu (53) gave Inoka Ranaweera’s side an ideal foundation to kick on at 141 for one with 15 overs remaining, but once the latter fell a flurry of wickets followed.
