Australia versus India, the last of the pool matches for both these sides. They’ve each already qualified from Group B for the semi-finals, but there’s still plenty to play for. Momentum and bragging rights, first of all: two unbeaten sides wanting to stay that way, and wanting to ensure they have the other team worried should they meet again in the final. Secondly, to worry their semi-final opponent with a dominant display. And third, whoever finishes top of this group gets to avoid whoever finishes top of the other, which is yet to be decided between England and West Indies.
And we could be set for another run-fest, with Alyssa Healy the highest scorer in the tournament and going at a prodigious rate, while Harmanpreet Kaur smashed a century in her opening match against New Zealand. Two exciting sides both in good form. Let’s see what they have for us.
