14:20 IST: Hello and welcome to the live blog of the virtual quarterfinal clash between India and New Zealand. A win for either team will see them seal a place in the last four.
India are on the 4th spot on the points table as of now, but a loss would push them out of semi-final contention. At Bristol, they were defeated by a dominant Australia by eight wickets, despite a fighting century from Punam Raut, and a record breaking 69 from captain Mithali Raj. Whoever wins on Saturday will secure the last remaining semi-final spot with hosts England, South Africa and defending champions Australia already qualifying for the last four.
