Australia require 282 off 42 overs to book their place in the Women's Cricket World Cup final after Harmanpreet Kaur inspired India to an imposing 4-281 in a rain-affected semi-final in Derby.

Australia scored a comfortable eight-wicket win over India in the group stage, chasing down the target of 227 with almost five overs to spare.

"Everyone has chipped in throughout, so I think that's a good thing about our team: we haven't really relied on one or two players, it has been very much shared around".

"Players have looked to react to the ball that's been delivered by these spinners and look to play off both front and back foot and perhaps also look to use different guards and put the spinners off their line". Harmanpreet Kaur mauled 171 off 115 balls - she was 41 off 60 before going on a brutal onslaught that would yield 131 off 55.

Where will the India vs Australia, ICC Women's World Cup 2017 semi-final match be played?

Indian eves are ready to pose with great aplomb against six time World Cup champions in their thirteenth encounter at County Ground, Derby, but this time, at the semifinals stage.

Although, the Indian team has performed quite well throughout the tournament so far, the past is behind them now. The hard-hitting batter won acclaim on the T20 circuit by becoming the first Indian woman to be picked in the Big Bash as well as the Kia Super League in England.

Ahead of the match, several sportspersons took time to wish the Indian eves.

While Sharma was bowled in the latter overs when looking to slog Elyse Villani (1-19), in her solitary over, Kaur kicked on, brutally dismantling Australia's sorry attack - Jess Jonassen particularly took some tap, with her seven overs costing 63.

Captain Mithali Raj led the rebuild, but her uncharacteristically powerful start was soon curtailed with the dismissal of Punam Raut, caught on the boundary by Beth Mooney off Ashleigh Gardner. Australia have not played a single match here.
