Defending champions Australia defeated South Africa in a rain-hit semi-final to qualify for the Women’s T20 World Cup final for the sixth consecutive time.

Australia posted 134-5 in 20 overs, thanks to skipper Meg Lanning who scored an unbeaten 49 to take her side at a comfortable position after early blows.

Before the Proteas could come to bat, the rain came again and impacted the match. When the rain stopped, South Africa got a revised target of 98 in 13 overs, but they could only reach 92 and lost the contest by five runs.

For her match-winning performance, Lanning was honored with the ‘Player of the Match’ award. Australia will now meet India in the finals, which will take place on Sunday (Mar 08) at Melbourne Cricket Ground.
