Australia thrash Windies Women to reach World T20 final

Shamilia Connell (L) and Shakera Selman (R) of West Indies congratulate Australia.

However, Healy counter-attacked, lashing four fours and a six off 38 balls as she put on 51 for the second wicket with Lanning, whose 39-ball knock contained two fours.

The match was played at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in North Sound, Antigua.

England never looked in trouble in their reply, cruising to an eight wicket win with 17 balls remaining. Critics try to make too much out of decisions at the toss instead of dealing with what actually happens on the field.

The decision is being backed by all the men's and women's team captains.

. The Aussies batted first on a slow, turning pitch and did well to reach 142, with Alyssa Healy top scoring for 46. We just had to come out here and stay really calm. It's such a proud win.

Indian men's captain Virat Kohli said, "I'm really excited for the opportunity to be part of the T20 World Cup in Australia".

Finally, the captains. Heather Knight and Meg Lanning are both fine players but as much as what they do with the bat - or ball, in Knight's case - the way they marshal their troops will be just as important in determining the tournament victor.

Unai Emery Reveals The One Thing Arsenal Lacked Under Arsene Wenger
Unai Emery believes Arsenal were in decline towards the end of Arsène Wenger's 22-year reign and "had to change things". But with time, you can only take care of technique and attacking freedom, losing your defensive structure.

West Indies celebrate a wicket. The Indian women got off to a good start but being a top-heavy side and thin thereafter saw them crumble from 89/3 to 112/10.

Taylor said: "We didn't bat properly in the chase".

"I think it's the composure in our team, that's something that really stands out to me at the moment, we've got some big-game players, we've got some players who can be risky on their day, but there's just a real composure which stands out to me and I think that'll be really important in the final". In England's run to the semis, she had bowled just one wicketless over against Bangladesh. "They (captain, coach and selector) discussed the wicket and the coach expressed that the same winning combination against Australia should play", Bhattacharya reportedly noted in her report, accessed by the newspaper.

And with the big crowds, which graced the venues, it was most fitting that Taylor acknowledged their support.

"You only get one brain so it's about using the downtime when you get it and making sure you get it back right", Healy said after a collision last week left her in doubt.

The West Indies hard nut is so erratic.

Veteran all-rounder Deandra Dottin was their only player with over 100 runs as she also topped their averages.
