Sydney, Mar 3 : India will face England in the semi-final of the ongoing Women's T20 World Cup while Australia will take on South Africa in the semi-final match, here on Thursday. The line-up was confirmed as both the Proteas and West Indies were awarded a point after no play was possible due to rain in the group stage’s final game on Tuesday.
India, who are aiming to make their maiden final, topped the group stage with four wins in as many games and their clash with England is a rerun of Women's T20 World Cup semi-final in Antigua in 2018. Back then, England had beaten India before losing the final to Australia. Hosts Australia, having booked their place in the knockout stages with victory over New Zealand on Monday, and placed second in Group A, face 2014 semi-finalists South Africa.
The winners will go into the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2020 final, to be played on March 8, International Women’s Day, at the MCG. Australia have won the tournament four times and England won the inaugural edition back in 2009. (UNI)
