Today two semi final were planned. However the 1st Semi Final between India Vs England was abandoned due to rain. As there was no extra day scheduled for abandoned game, England was very unlucky to lose the game without a single bowl being bowled. India being the topper in Group A, who won all their league stage matches earlier got the benefit for playing well and awarded to play the final on March 08th, 2020
The other Semi final was played in the same Sydney ground however it was also intervened due to rain; luckily there was a shorter version of the game. Australia batted first and made 134/5 in 20 overs. Captain Lanning scored a composed 49* (49) when there was collapse in the middle order. The opener gave a good start to Australia and their 1st Wicket fell at 34 runs. Mooney made 28 (24) runs and Healy was out at 18(13). Nadine de Klerk is the highest wicket taker from South Africa. She took 3 wickets in here 4 overs and conceded 19 runs only.
South Africa last match against West Windies in group stage was not less than a blessing, where the match was abandoned and they top the table in Group B. However today the rain God has created problems for them when their target was revised by DLS method and given a target of 98 runs to be chased from 13 overs and that was insane. South Africa did every bit of it to chase the target however fallen short by 5 runs. The stats were 92/5 (13 overs). Wolvaardt has almost made it for South Africa she made 41*(27) with 2 sixes and 3 fours. She was man of the match against Pakistan for her half century. Some splendid bowing by Megan Schutt 3-0-17-2 and Delissa Kimmince 3-0-16-1 has made it for Australia. Australian Captain Meg Lanning was the man of the match for her 49 and well captaincy.
