Women's World T20: India vs New Zealand: Preview, India's schedule, timing, where to watch

India will face New Zealand in their opening match of the Womens World T20

Guyana, November 8: A young Indian women's squad will aim to emerge from the shadows of a winless past while launching its bid for a maiden title with a tough opener against New Zealand in the first Women's World T20 starting here on Friday (November 9).

India have not been very competitive in the shortest format compared to the 50-over game in which they scripted a path-breaking moment last year when they reached the World Cup final.

1. HISTORY

India have never won the World T20 in their previous five attempts with their best result, a semifinal appearance, coming in 2009 and 2010. This is the first standalone World T20 for women after being held alongside the men's event in the past editions. In the lead-up to the World T20, India have hit good form, beating hosts Sri Lanka before blanking Australia A at home. India have failed to go past the group stage in the previous three editions of the World T20.

Smriti Mandhana: "After the setback in the Asia Cup, everyone went back and worked hard. The Sri Lanka series has been really good. For me personally, I didn't get really good scores, but one match, Harmanpreet and I didn't score a single run and we got 170. That was brilliant. The bowlers too have improved massively in last three months. And fielding wise, we are 10 per cent better than in the last World Cup."
