A couple of entertaining knockout games have led us to an Australia vs India final. Before that, there's a 3rd place playoff for the bronze medal between England and New Zealand. See you then. For now, it's goodbye from me, Ekanth, on behalf of my fellow comms-mate Sudarshahnan and our scorer, K Vairavan.

momo: "As usual Healy leaves her special innings for the finals. Goodluck Team India"

Tautoru: "Won it in the last over. Close. Those dropped catches…."

Daz: "This Australian team remind me of the Brazilian national soccer team of the late 90s "

8:58 pm: Smiles and high-fives in the Australian dugout. They make it to another final. New Zealand were in this, but dropping as many as five chances meant they could not get past the T20 world champions. Australia offered chances but the pros capitalised in between. Healy and Lanning were dismissed early. Mooney and McGrath had a 56-run stand which steadied the innings. There were drop chances in them. But what mattered more was that the duo kept up with the rate. When they were dismissed, Haynes and Gardner continued to move the innings forward. In the end, Australia won with three balls to spare. But spare a thought for Lea Tahuhu, who wasn't initially in the squad, but had enviable accuracy. She picked three but could have had six on another day. Kerr was decent but had a missed stumping chance, the skipper tried to dry the runs at the end but the equation was too far in Australia's favour.

Close to a yorker, clipped to midwicket who stops it with a dive.

Wide full toss, Harris reaches out and gets the cover drive off the bottom of the bat. It's at a catching height but well to the right of cover and finds the boundary.

17.3
1

Loud calls of 'catch' but it falls well in front of long-on, running across to her left. It was a low full toss that was lofted straight.

Full and wide, beats the drive but it's outside the tramline.

17.2
W
Devine to Haynes, OUT

Stunner taken by Bates at long-on! It was a full ball on middle, Haynes had made room and tried to swipe it over cow corner. Got it off the splice, it was a skier. Bates ran in, dove forward, leaning slightly to her right and grabbed it low. Followed it with a fist pump. Maybe too late but better than never.
