The first semi-final match of the ICC Women’s World Cup 2022 will be played between Australian women and West Indies women on Wednesday at Basin Reserve Stadium. Australia has been the best team in the tournament. They are unbeaten in the tournament so far. In 7 matches, they have managed to win all seven games and would be looking to continue the winning momentum. Australia are coming into this encounter on the back of a 5-wicket win over Bangladesh

Aussies managed to restrict Bangladesh to 135 runs in the first innings. Jonassen and Gardner picked two wickets each, while Sutherland and Schutt managed to pick one wicket apiece. Australia, later, chased down the score in just 32.1 overs. They didn’t make a great start but skipper Beth Mooney continued her fine form with the bat. She managed to play a match-winning knock of 66 runs in 75 balls, a knock which was laced with 5 fours.

Ahead of the semi-final game, Meg Lanning will continue to be their biggest bet. She is currently the second-highest run-getter in the tournament. Rachael Haynes has the third-most number of runs and she too will be an important batsman for the team.

Facing them are West Indies women, who reached the semis due to a better net run rate than India. West Indies last played a match against Pakistan. They exhibited a poor batting display and could only manage 89 runs in 20 overs. Dottin top-scored with 27 off 35 balls. Pakistan chased down the score pretty easily in 18.5 overs. To win the semi-final match against Australia, West Indies ought to play their skins out. The onus will be on the shoulders of Hayley Mathews and S Taylor to make a significant contribution.
