INDW 281/4 (42.0 Ovs)
AUSW 245-all out (40.1 Ovs)
Lanning: Very well done to the Indians, we just couldn’t stop them. Blackwell was hitting it very well but we just couldn’t do it at the start. I do not think we nailed a full game at any stage, we had some moments but nothing much beyond that. The same thing happened today. Overall, a pretty disapponting tournament for us.
Mithali: Harman’s innings was exceptional. To come back in the semi-finals and play an innings like this was brilliant. Jhulan too was superb and has hit her straps at the right time. We have players now who are of international standards. We have a new Woman of the Match in every game which is wonderful. Smriti scored a century in the early stages, Poonam got one after that and Harman today. I am sure Harman would be fit and wanting to play the finals. All of us are very excited to be in the finals at Lord’s. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity. (On her mid-innings dug out dance) Veda and me choreographed a song and I just reminded Veda about that when it was played out. I did not know the cameras were on us.
Harmanpreet Kaur, Player of the Match: Firstly, I am feeling proud. My innings was only worth because they were restricted. I’m looking forward to the finals. England is a good side and we will definitely give them a fight. It’s always good when you score runs for your team and I’m very happy. When we started from Mumbai, we were thinking of reaching the semi-finals and now we are here. I would like to thank the support staff and all the fans for their support.
