Semi-Final abandoned due to rain

All eyes were on the women in blue as they were set to square off versus England at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) yesterday, but heavy rains shattered the chances of a match and no reserve days were allotted for the knockout match, meaning the team with most wins in the group stage progresses into the Final.

Group A saw India topping the table winning all the four matches with the highest net run rate, of +0.979. Whereas, England ranked second in Group B winning three out of their four matches, losing to South Africa.
