    8 holes out at long-off! Mohammed strikes back for West Indies! She raced down the track, but wasn't quite to the pitch. Went through with the shot only to see Kycia Knight take it ever so cleanly and fling it up into the air in triumph. Might have held in the pitch a little and though she did try to check her shot, she can't manage it 48/2
    5.5 I think that's the first strike! A little too eager in the running and Jonassen has to depart. Good length ball turned away towards square leg, who swooped on the ball and returned a quick through to find Australia's latest opener well short of her ground 32/1
    12.5 dragged on! That's a very big wicket for West Indies! She had cut one off off stump previously, but that ball had been short enough for the shot. This was a bit fuller and angled in as well. And Smartt does a Tahir and races off across the ground. And before that, she did a Bravo-esque jig. Calyso fever, man! 83/4
    11.5 oh, anti-climax! This was another tossed up delivery outside off and Perry hacks it back to Taylor's waiting hands. Would have done better to go through the off side, but this is T20 and swiping at the ball is so hard to resist 78/3

    15.2 she was walking across and has been found in front of the stumps! Quicker and flatter on middle and leg, Cameron was looking for the simple flick behind square on the leg side but misses it. Think she was adjacent with leg stump 92/5

    9.4 one skip too many for Knight! This was a little slower and she was just going for a rank slog after charging out. The ball sneaks under her bat and rattles into middle and Osborne has a big smile on her face. 48/2
    7.1 loads of flight on her first one and a misfield might have cost an extra run, or fetched an important wicket. It's very tight and though she's in, the bat seems to be in the air! Sarah Coyte, take a bow. That was a brilliant, flat throw. The open face found point and it seemed a regulation stop, but she just didn't get low enough. But she was extremely quick on the recovery. Desperate dive from Taylor, but it doesn't work out. Unlucky 43/1
    18.2 low full toss and Dottin has connected it very well, but there is a fielder there and Osborne takes a pressure catch! Is that the game for West Indies? Took her front leg outside the line and smeared this over the top. Seemed set for a six, but that's the longer boundary and deep midwicket holds on 121/3

    19.4 full toss outside off and she's spliced it into the hands of short third man! Aguilleira has to walk back, or does she? They're checking for the no ball. It's fine. West Indies in deep water now, with 11 off 2 130/4

  • Australia's nous too much for West Indies

    Once again, Australia had a little too much skill and nous when it mattered in the World T20 semi-final, from the batting of Alyssa Healy, captaincy of Meg Lanning and spin of Erin Osborne

  • Aguilleira rues another knockout stumble

    West Indies captain Merissa Aguilleira said that they allowed Australia to score a crucial 20 runs more than they should have in their semi-final

  • The switch hit that wasn't

    Plays of the day for the 1st women's World T20 semi-final between Australia and West Indies

  • Australia Women in third successive final

    Australia Women survived a Deandra Dottin-led late charge from West Indies Women to keep their chances of completing a hat-trick of World T20 titles with a tight win in the first semi-final in Mirpur
