India stay unbeaten in the group stage and now move to semi-final.  That's all from this match, do join us for next fixture. Till then good bye.

Excellent bowling and fielding performance this by India. Australia need 60 runs from two overs and that looks out of their reach now. India inching towards the victory.

Captain Meg Lanning and Ashleigh Gardner are the two new batters at the crease for Australia. The former champions need a big partnership from here to take them through.

What an over for India. Deepti Sharma strikes twice in this over. Australia lose both the openers now. She first removed Villani and then bowled Beth Mooney.

Good start this for Australia. Couple of boundaries for Beth Mooney to begin with. India looking for an early breakthrough and have introduced spinners early on.

Despite being an inconsequential fixture, India vs Australia match will be of prime importance for both the teams as it provides them the opportunity to test themselves ahead of the semi-finals. Both Australia and India have won three out three matches and are unbeaten.

With momentum firmly on both sides, India and Australia would also like to test their middle-order to provide their players with clear roles. Despite the stunts, the aim to dominate the opposition is the common drive as the 'Women in Blue' are learning the commanding game, while the three-time champions in the shortest format are the experts. India's whirlwind skipper Harmanpreet Kaur, who blasted a century in the opener, powered her side to an imposing 194 runs which surpassed the previous highest world record of 191 runs stationed by Australia against Ireland in 2014. However, the 'Women in Blue' would be aiming to set the record straight after losing to their rivals twice in the India Tri-Nation Women's T20 Series held earlier this year.  India vs Ireland, ICC T20 Women’s World Cup 2018: Virat Kohli Sends Words of Encouragement to Harmanpreet Kaur & Co (Watch Video).

Apart from Kaur, other players are capable too of individual brilliance. The likes of Smriti Mandhana, Mithali Raj and Jemimah Rodrigues can turn a game with the bat. All-rounder Deepti Sharma and newcomer D Hemalatha carry the confidence of ruining the opponents on their day. But a flurry of wickets in the middle overs can force India to lose their way and eventually limit their surge in the death overs. (Inputs ANI).
