Following a washout game in Sydney, the Indian Women’s Cricket Team entered the final of the ongoing ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2020. It will be their maiden final, as they never crossed the semifinal hurdle in the cricketing history so far. Meanwhile, Twitter celebrates the occasion with joy.

The Women in Blue qualified for the final after their semi-final match against England Women was abandoned due to rain. Continuous rain delayed the toss and eventually, the match was called off without a ball being bowled in Sydney.

Though the rain had the final say in the semi-final nothing can be taken away from the Women in Blue for playing some exceptional cricket in the group stage.

Rather they were the only team to win all the four matches and stay unbeaten and have been rewarded for the same.

India booked a place in the final as they finished their group on top with four wins out of four games. The last time these two-sided met in this competition, India had lost to England by eight wickets.

India will now face the winner of the second semi-final that will be played between South Africa and Australia at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG).

In case of another washout, South Africa will qualify on the virtue of most wins in their group.

Unfortunate we didn’t get a game, but there are rules and we have to follow it. Having reserve days in the future will be a great idea,” said Kaur in the post-match presentation.

Having qualified for the finals now, India Women will be keen to go all the way this time around after missing out in 2017 when they lost to England in the Women’s ODI World Cup at Lord’s.
