Australia had a blip in their last group match but they would still be favourites going into the first semi-final against Windies.

While Australia's winning streak was broken by India, Windies still remain unbeaten in the ICC Women's World T20 2018. They did not bat particularly well in their last match against England but their bowlers made the job easy for them by skittling England out for just 115.

Windies have a formidable opening combination in Hayley Matthews and Deandra Dottin. While Stephanie Taylor has struggled in the last two matches, she still remains a very competent batsman. Campbell found some form against England by notching up a run-a-ball 45.

Deandra Dottin is a key player with the ball as well. Pacers Shakera Selman and Shamilia Connell can also knock a few down on their day.

Australian batting sensation Alyssa Healy should have recovered from the injury and would pair up with Beth Mooney to counter the Windies' opening combination blow for blow. Skipper Meg Lanning and Ellyse Perry are the other two shining lights of the middle order.

In the bowling department, Megan Schutt has done exceptionally well. Ellyse Perry, Sophie Molineux, Delissa Kimmince and Ashleigh Gardner will also ask tough questions of the Windies batters.

Windies are still not at their best and though they have not lost a single match in the tournament, they have stuttered a few times. This would give Australia hope who would have been hurt by a crushing defeat against India and would bounce back with all their strength. Before you decide who is going to win check out the probable playing XIs of both teams.
