The fate of Group B has already been sealed as Australia and India have already made their way into the semi-final of the 2018 ICC Women’s World T20 in the West Indies. To be precise, they are the only teams in the T20 tournament to not have lost a single match thus far. Both teams would be locking horns tomorrow and would be hoping to end their group on the top of the ladder.
In the day’s second match, New Zealand and Ireland would be crossing swords. While the White Ferns opened their account against Pakistan, they would want to end their campaign with another impressive performance. On the other hand, Ireland would love to end on a high. Both matches would be staged at the Providence Stadium in Guyana, which is also set to host its last matches in the event.
Here’s the prelude of what’s on offer on Day 9 of World T20:
