Even though the team made it to the finals without playing a delivery, they did want to play the semi-finals. Now, the host of the event, Australia, did put forward a request for a reserve day for semi-finals. Unfortunately, the International Cricket Council did not respond positively to the request.

The Women in Blue skipper, Harmanpreet Kaur, said, “Unfortunately we didn’t get a game, but there are rules and we have to follow it. Having reserve days in the future will be a great idea.”

The second semi-finals is going to be between South Africa and Australia. India will be facing the winner of this match at the finals of the Women’s T20 World Cup. This match is scheduled for Sunday at the MCG. On the other hand, if there is a similar incident of heavy showers, then South Africa will proceed to the finals.
