The situation wasn't encouraging at all as it was absolutely bucketing down at the SCG during the IND W vs ENG W live game. According to the new rules, a minimum of 10-overs-a-side is needed to have a shortened ICC Womens t20 IND W vs ENG W live game. The cut-off time for the ICC Womens t20 IND W vs ENG W live game to start was 4:51 PM (Local) and 11:21 AM (IST).

There are no reserve days for the ICC Womens t20 live semi-final matches in the Women’s T20 World Cup. It was pre-decided that the team with a better position at the end of group stages will advance to the final in case of a washout. It continued to rain the same way and there was no game subsequently. India progress to the final courtesy of their superior group stage record. India finished Group A at the top by winning all their matches while England Women ended up second in Group B.

The second semi-final is also scheduled at the same venue with Australia Women taking on South Africa Women later on Thursday. There are high chances of rain spoiling the second semi-final as well. If the match ends in a washout, it is South Africa who will progress to the final as they ended on top in Group B.
