Current T20I Form Australia Women:
Australia Women have won their Semi Final game against New Zealand Women to enter the finals of the tournament.

Amelia Kerr supported her well in the middle and made 40 in 36 balls. The rest of the batters couldn't really take the attack to the oposition and lost their wickets at important times. Brooke Halliday played a nice cameo of 16 in 10 balls in the death overs and helped her team cross the 140 run mark to reach 144 for 7 in 20 overs.
During the chase, Alyssa Healy showed a lot of promise by smashing 3 boundaries early on. However, she was dismissed in the 3rd over by Lea Tahuhu. Her wicket was followed by that of Meg Lanning who was also dismissed by Lea Tahuhu. When Australia Women looked in trouble, Tahlia McGrath came to their rescue. She made 34 off 23 balls before running herself out. Beth Mooney also played well for her 36 in 29 balls. Ashleigh Gardner and Grace Harris finished the job on the 3rd ball of the 20th over and won the match for Australia Women by 5 wickets.
Current T20I Form India Women:

India Women batted first and posted a competitive total of 164 for 5 on board in 20 overs. Smriti Mandhana was the top run scorer for India Women. She gave her team a tremendous start and smashed 61 in just 32 balls. Jemimah Rodriguez in the middle order played a good knock of 44 not out in 31 balls. On the back of these two brilliant batting performances, India Women were able to cross the 160 run mark and reach 164 for 5 in 20 overs.
During the chase, England Women started off with a flier. The openers Danielle Wyatt and Sophia Dunkley smashed the bowlers to all parts of the ground in the powerplay overs. Dunkley was dismissed by Deepti Sharma in the 3rd over. Alice Capsey and Danielle Wyatt continued to find the gaps and were involved in a 35 run partnership for the 2nd wicket before Capsey ran herself out in an odd fashion. After Danielle Wyatt was dismissed, India Women were well on top of England Women. Amy Jones and Natalie Sciver collected 54 runs for the 4th wicket partnership but once Jones was run out, England Women innings was going nowhere. Natalie Sciver also risked a double and got run out in the 19th over, leaving England in tatters. Sneh Rana kept her nerves in the final over to defend the total as India won the match by 4 runs.
