Scorer: Binoy George | Commentator: Akshay Gopalakrishnan

2.04pm Many had believed that India could beat Australia, but few would've imagined they'd do it with such ease. Hardly breaking a sweat. This has been a landslide victory, an absolute demolition of a power-packed Australian line-up. Sure, they were hit bad by the injury to Healy, but India ripped through what was left of the rest. As expected, spin proved to be the undoing of Australia. India needed their spinners to perform if they were to win this one and they delivered big time. Of course, they had the luxury of a competitive total to defend, and that was down to the belligerent hitting of Smirit Mandhana earlier in the day. India finish top the Group B table. They will now await the rest of West Indies v England and face the loser of that game. The winner will face Australia.

Smriti Mandhana is Player of the Match. "First three matches I got starts but couldn't convert it. So I just wanted to score big today," she says. "Veda insisted on the review, and thanks to her we got 20-30 runs extra. The way we bowled and fielded today was the best of the four games, but batting-wise the performance against New Zealand was better."

Parag: "Heartiest congratulations Team India. Great show."

Karthik: "2016 men T20WC India had same Pakistan, Australia, NZ in group stage and played WI in semis. Hope this time we can go further and even win"

"She's (Healy) okay. We'll look after her and hopefully she'll be fine for the semis," says Meg Lanning. "We felt pace off the ball was going to be more effective. It (defeat) definitely shows we've got a lot to work on and improve on."

"When you have a good team, you have to perform well," says Harmanpreet Kaur, the winning Indian captain. I'm very happy with the girls. We worked very hard and today we fielded well and I am proud of the girls. Hope the sort of partnership I had with Smriti can keep coming."

Rupendu: "Probably Ravi Shastri meant this Indian side when he was referring to the "best touring side" "

Alright then. That's a wrap of this game. Stick around, if you'd like, for Ireland v New Zealand. Our coverage for that game will begin in a bit. And until then, you can dive into the report for this game, which should be up in a bit. Goodbye from me!
