The first IND W vs ENG W live semi-final of the ICC Women's T20 World Cup on Thursday between India Women and England Women at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) has been delayed due to heavy rains. The latest IND W vs ENG W toss update says that the match has been called off. The cut-off time for the toss was 4:36 PM (Local) which is 11:06 AM (IST). However, the captains, umpires and referees have agreed to not continue with the live cricket match.
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.
