India will play Australia in the semi-finals of the Women's T20 World Cup today. Going by past record, it is going to be tough for India. They have beaten the Aussies just 7 times in 30 meetings. In previous T20 World Cups, India beat them twice, both times in group matches, in 2018 and 2020, but suffered a crushing defeat by 85 runs in the 2020 final. Also, India's form in the current World Cup is patchy. While the bowling and fielding has been average, it is the batting which is not up to the mark with most batters unable to convert starts into match-winning innings and the team playing too many dot balls.

Australia, on the other hand, are in top form and will look to add one more title to their ever-growing list. But Richa Ghosh, India's wicketkeeper said the team with the better mental strength will win. She could have added that the team which plays better on the day will win. Ahead of the game, India suffered twin setbacks when first Pooja Vastrakar was ruled out of the game as she is down with upper respiratory tract infection. Sneha Rana has been named as replacement. Then, captain Harmanpreet Kaur is a doubtful starter. Reports suggest that Kaur is unlikely to play in the match as there are doubts about her fitness. The final call will be taken by the team management before the start of the match. Although Kaur has not been in the best of form, not having the skipper in the team is not good for morale

It is going to be a highly-charged match and India is obviously going to pull all stops to turn the tables on Australia. But Australia's current form, especially in this tournament (they have reached the semi-finals undefeated, winning all their four group matches) is awe-inspiring. The Indians will have to be at their best and look to rotate strike when batting and make best use of the power play overs. They will also have to bowl a tight line and length and not allow too many liberties to the Australian batters.
