India beat New Zealand by three runs to enter the last four of the tournament. The Indian side has been unbeaten in the women's World Cup T20I so far. 

Shafali Verma was declared the "Player of the Match" after her match-winning performance hitting 46 runs in 34 balls with four boundaries and a six.

Indian batters had posted a slightly below-par score of 138/8 in 20 overs but the Indian bowlers defended the target with each bowler picking up wickets.

Shikha Pandey was the star bowler in the end as she throttled the Kiwis in the last over with just four runs needed for victory. Pandey bowled a yorker to get Jensen run out off the final ball after being hit for a boundary in the previous ball.
