Eng-W vs Ind-W: The top four has been decided and the winner here is in for a medal for sure. Ideally, England women should feel confident against the Indian side. They are usually the better side in big events. India though are doing a pretty good job this tournament. They had two commanding wins and pushed Australia as well. With Renuka Singh bowling well, they will know that they are just one good spell away from a medal

Young Amelia Kerr hasnt had the greatest of time on the big stage. With global audience watching, she has a nice chance to kickstart her career. However, after two low scores the pressure is on her to do well. She is a bundle of talent and will be hoping to find her range in this important fixture.
Renuka Singh is single-handedly damaging batting line-ups. She has two four wicket hauls in the tournament and is a huge threat in the upcoming game. A good spell from her will keep India ahead and will be what they need to set up a medal for India as they take on a tough England side.
England are a pretty good side, but India may come in with a little more confidence. Despite their issues in handling the big stage they may feel like they have a chance here given how they have gone through this tournament.
