An abject batting capitulation by the Indian women cricket team saw them going down to New Zealand by 17 runs in a warm-up match of their Twenty20 World Cup at the Taunton Vale Sports Club Ground on Tuesday.

Electing to bat first, New Zealand posted 123 for five with Aimee Watkins (60) and Amy Satterwaite (34) scoring bulk of the runs.

Chasing 124, India were never really in the match once they lost opener Anagha Deshpande (1) to the fifth delivery of the day.

Only three batters -- Priyanka Roy (28), Anjum Chopra (14) and Babita Mandlik (13) -- managed double digit scores as India folded for 106 in exact 20 overs.

For New Zealand, Satterthwaite shone with the ball as well, claiming two wickets for 12 runs.

India's previous warm-up match against Australia had been abandoned without a ball bowled.

Brief score:

New Zealand: 123 for 5 in 20 overs (Aimee Watkins 60, Amy Satterwaite 34; Rumeli Dhar 2/12).

India: 106 all out in 20 overs (Priyanka Roy 28, Anjum Chopra 14; Amy Satterthwaite 2/12).
