Indian bowlers, who had struggled in the lead-up to the game, eventually banded together to limit New Zealand to 251 for nine in 50 overs.
Harmanpreet Singh’s 63 off 66 balls and Smriti Mandhana’s 71 off 84 balls helped India attain the target in 46 overs. The captain, Mithali Raj, remained unbeaten on 57 off 66 balls.
