Women’s World T20: England beat India Women’s to move into World T20 final – where they will face Australia – after a dominant eight-wicket win over India in Antigua.
Natalie Sciver – dropped on two – and Amy Jones punished India with an unbeaten 92-run partnership as they won with 17 balls to spare.
After winning the toss, India collapsed horribly, losing their last eight wickets for only 23 runs.
England lost two early wickets but Jones and Sciver saw them home.
In the night’s opening semi-final – played on the same pitch – Australia thrashed hosts West Indies by 71 runs.
England have now reached four of the six World T20 finals to be played – winning the first tournament on home soil in 2009.
