India Women won the toss and elected to bat.

These two teams played a match before today at Bristol, Jul 12, 2017. In that match India women batted first after losing the toss and scored 226 runs in 50 overs with seven down. PG Raut opener of the Indian women team smashed 106 runs off 136 balls, she smashed eleven 4s in her innings and when her wicket dismissed then it was 46.2 fullish, angling into leg stump. Clears her front leg, goes for the big whip, but can’t clear deep backward square leg, who barely has to move. Just a couple of steps to her right to catch this at chest height 203/3. M Raj* scored 69 runs and out. From Australia women team NE Bolton scored 36 and out, BL Mooney 45, MM Lanning* 76 and EA Perry 60, in the end Australia Women won by 8 wickets (with 29 balls remaining).

Mithali Raj considers Derby India’s “home ground” and for good reason. They won each of their four round-robin fixtures at the venue, including the tournament opener against England and the semi-final qualification match against New Zealand. Australia, however, will be playing here for the first time in this World Cup. Given the nature of the individual performances in their last group game, it is unlikely India will tweak their playing combination.

Lanning’s troublesome shoulder forced her to sit out a second game in the tournament during Australia’s last league match, against South Africa on Saturday. She was, however, seen taking throwdowns, albeit with a heavily strapped shoulder, as the team got its first training session underway in the County Ground. Chances of her not slotting back into the XI, and as captain, for the knockout clash are, therefore, slim.

Despite Lanning’s inclusion, Australia may consider retaining stand-in captain Rachael Haynes, who has featured in only two games so far. Against South Africa, Haynes’ left-arm medium-pace accounted for two top-order wickets off the only two overs she has bowled since the 2013 World Cup. With two golden ducks and one half-century in her last four innings, Elyse Villani’s expensive part-time medium pace may not be enough for her to merit a selection ahead of fellow allrounder Haynes.
