India booked a berth in the final of the women’s Twenty20 World Cup after their semifinal clash against England at Sydney Cricket Ground on Thursday was washed out. This is the first time India have reached the final of the tournament. The rain began pouring early in the day, without relenting, which caused the match to be abandoned without a ball being bowled. With India on top of group stage table, they qualified for the final, since there was no reserve day for the semifinal clash.
India began with a win over defending champions Australia followed by victories against Bangladesh, New Zealand and Sri Lanka to top group A with eight points from four matches.
