New Zealand dished out a disciplined all-round effort to post a comfortable seven-wicket win over Sri Lanka in their opening match of the ICC Women’s World T20 here on Tuesday. The New Zealand women’s team, also known as the ‘White Ferns’, chased down the target in 15.5 overs after restricting Sri Lanka to 110 for six.
Captain Suzie Bates ( above ) scored a run-a-ball 37 while opening the batting alongside Rachel Priest, who struck 28 off 26 balls at the Feroz Shah Kotla. With the win, New Zealand maintained their 100 per cent win record against Sri Lanka in seven T20 Internationals.

The Lankan innings failed to get a move on thereafter.
Ireland vs New Zealand Prediction
New Zealand women will win the toss choose to bat first and win the match. Ireland Women put up a spirited display before losing to hosts India in their first warm-up game at the T20 World Cup. Pembroke all-rounder Kim Garth [3-15] gave her side an early boost removing both openers in successive deliveries to leave India 16 for 2.
Smriti Mandhana led the recovery with a superb unbeaten 73 from just 52 balls. She struck the ball cleanly, hitting ten fours and clearing the ropes once.She dominated the third wicket stand of 72 with Harmanpreet Kaur , while she and Veda Krishnamurthy  added a rapid 46 from 29 balls as the run rate accelerated. Robyn Lewis [1-13] was the other successful bowler as India finished on 147 for 4.
In reply Cecelia Joyce  went early, but a typically belligerent 21 in just 14 balls from Clare Shillington gave the innings early impetus. A positive fourth-wicket partnership of 38 in 32 balls between Cath Dalton and skipper Isobel Joyce put the Irish in with a great chance of a major scalp.
Dalton impressed with a fluent 37 from 30 balls [4 fours, 1 six] and at 86 for 3 with 8 overs left, Ireland were very much in the game, needing 61 from 48 balls. However, Dalton’s dismissal was the catalyst for a major collapse as five wickets fell for 17 runs. They included that of Joyce  as the Irish challenge fizzled out, finishing 29 runs short.
