Captain Watson Ferns Amy Satterthwaite, a cricketer, says the morale is still good, despite the loss of the start of the World Cup T20 in the Caribbean, going to India for 34 runs.
New Zealand women's cricket now faces Australia in a game to play.
With the first two from Group B in the semifinals, it will be Australia and India, unless Ferns can win their opponents Tasman, who beat them 3-0 last month in Tasman.
Despite a series of losses, Satterthvaite said team spirit is still good.
"Although the results are not likely to pass our way, the girls are still in the ghosts, so it's obviously difficult to continue if you do not win, but I think we must continue to believe in our ability. Otherwise, it really makes it difficult to get up for games. I am proud of the way the girls stick together and continue to have this belief, and that's something we have to have. "
After deciding to strike in India, India scored 194 for five of its 20 goals, which is the ninth highest in women's matches.
They were led by skipper Harmanpreet Kaur, who scored 51 with 51 balls.
Satterthvaite said they were simply overwhelmed.
"Harmanpreet's innings was obviously remarkable, but it's a disappointing fact that we did not execute our bowling plans, but it's really hard to posses against someone who has this form."
Leah Tahuhu of New Zealand played 2 wins for 18 races with three breaks.
Satterthvaite said that the bowlers did not adjust well.
"We talked about how she was [Harmanpreet] likes to play. I obviously played with her in England so I surely saw how he could hit the ball. We talked about what was needed, but as I said, I do not think we have done it anymore. "
In response, Vhite Ferns started well with Suzie Bates and Sophie Devine who put 52 in their first career but failed to track the speed of the run while losing their regular career.
Bates scored 67, while Katei Martin scored 39. West Ferns finished with 20 goals at 160 for nine.
Satterthvaite said there were positive.
"When you proclaim 194, you know that you really need special innings, but unfortunately we did not understand it today. I thought Suzie was at the top and to be fair, getting totally out of it, I actually thought, he dig up and showed some real intent and improvement from the previous games. "
Satterthvaite knows that the next game is a necessary victory.
"I think that every match is necessary, we knew that we were coming to this tournament, because yesterday we discussed how important it is today. But equally if you want to be able to raise the trophy, you have to win the game of Cricket." We did not have the best start but more it's early in the day and we know that we still get a chance. "
Harmanpreet is only the tenth player to win the T20 international and Satterthvaite has rated his injections as one of the best in the women's T20.
"Obviously, I'm lucky enough to see some pretty special shapes from Suzie Bates and Sophie Devine, I would say that it is exactly worse. Her blow was remarkable, and her ability to clear the border is something that is quite unique in some way."
