However, after winning the 2018 World Cup group game against New Zealand cricket team
by 34 runs, India have also lost three successive matches to the White Ferns during the 2019 tour of New Zealand and would now be aiming to avenge the losses in Thursday's match at the Junction Oval.
When India last faced New Zealand in World Cup, Harmanpreet Kaur
has smashed a brilliant century, hitting 7 fours and 8 sixes. However, it would be a new challenge for Harmanpreet as she is yet to find her form in the ongoing tournament. In her last five innings, she has failed to cross even the 20-run mark and has not looked in form.
