The Indian women’s cricket team, captained by Harmanpreet Kaur, will play the semi-final match of the Commonwealth Games on Saturday. The women’s cricket will take on hosts England in the first semi-final of the event. At the same time, in the second semi-final, Australia will take on New Zealand to decide which team will go ahead for the gold medal. England beat New Zealand by seven wickets to top Group B and Team India is second only to T20 World champions Australia in Group A.
The losing team will have a chance to win the bronze.
Team India toured England last year for a limited overs series. The English team was successful in defeating the Indian team 2-1 in the three-match T20 series. India would like to take on the hosts in Saturday’s clash and would like to ensure at least a silver medal. For the first time, women’s cricket has been included in the Commonwealth Games. Whichever team loses the semi-finals will play for the bronze medal on Sunday.
Match timings changed for the sake of Indian spectators
The semi-final match between India and England was to be played at 10.30 pm Indian time, but now its timing has changed. Along with this, the timing of the semi-final between Australia and New Zealand has also changed. India has played only one day-night game in T20 cricket and that was against Barbados in the ongoing Commonwealth Games. After this the organizers made a big change for the Indian audience with the Harmanpreet Kaur-led side reaching the last four.
