India skipper Jhulan Goswami is confident of stopping the Australian juggernaut when they clash in the first semifinals of the Women T20 World Cup at the Beausejour Cricket Ground in St Lucia on Thursday.

India's men's cricket was routed by Australia in the Super Eights stage but the Indian girls are quite confident of derailing Australia and making it to the summit clash, slated for May 16 at Barbados.

The Australian women have had an unbeaten run in the World Cup but Goswami is hardly worried.

"We have beaten Australia in the 50 overs World Cup Down Under. So we are pretty much confident that we can beat them in this format as well," said Jhulan.

Sulakshana Naik (59 vs Sri Lanka, 28 vs New Zealand and 11 vs Pakistan), Mithali Raj (52, 44, 33) and Poonam Raut (54 against Pakistan) have been the hub around which India have made match-winning scores.

And team manager Vidya Yadav said the girls were fit and raring to go.
