India Women were all out after scoring 112 runs against England Women in the second semi-final of Women's World T20 2018 at Antigua's Sir Vivian Richards Stadium.

After winning the toss India started off well but lost momentum after losing a few quick wickets in the middle overs.

Fall of wickets:

43-1 (Smriti Mandhana, 5.6), 53-2 (Taniya Bhatia, 8.4), 89-3 (Jemimah Rodrigues, 13.5), 93-4 (Veda Krishnamurthy, 15.1), 94-5 (Harmanpreet Kaur, 15.5), 99-6 (Dayalan Hemalatha, 16.5), 99-7 (Anuja Patil, 16.6), 104-8 (Radha Yadav, 18.1), 112-9 (Arundhati Reddy, 19.2), 112-10 (Deepti Sharma, 19.3).

In a shock decision, the unbeaten Indians have not brought back their all-time record T20 runscorer Mithali Raj, instead choosing to retain the same team which defeated Australia in their final group game in Guyana five days earlier.

England also resisted the temptation to alter their side despite going down to the West Indies in a low-scoring encounter in St Lucia last Sunday, their first defeat of the tournament.

The winners will face Australia in the final on Saturday at the same venue after the three-time champions crushed title-holders and hosts West Indies by 71 runs in the first match of the semi-final double-header.

No match is being played.
