India bowlers come up with some stunning show to take their team to the World Cup final after Harmanpreet Kaur’s magical innings of 171 runs. India posted 281 for the loss of four wickets batting first at Derby and then bowled out Australia for 245 to win the semi-final by 36 runs. Elyse Villani and Alex Blackwell threatened to take the match away from India at two different occasions but India held on to their nerves for a win.
