The Semi-Finalists gear up for what seems like a rather predicted scenario with Australia, England, India and South Africa making the top four. Australia come in as clear favorites and will be backed to give India another hiding as they did when they met in Melbourne three years ago.
India though will remember that encounter very well and will want to avoid such a scenario. Like that incident, the line-up remains pretty strong. Renuka Singh in particular enjoyed their encounter in the Commonwealth games. Performance in the big-stage though has been a concern and could be where India struggle in the upcoming game.

AUS-W vs IND-W Key Players
If anyone can put pressure on the Australians it will be Renuka Singh. She had them under pressure in their group stage back in the Commonwealth game and has made it a habit of picking up early wickets. She has evolved into a really strong wicket-taker and with a really deep batting line-up against her, India will want Renuka Singh to make early inroads.

A duck in the previous game has Beth Mooney get off to a bad start to this World Cup. She is normally very consistent at the top and a good innings will extend the fear factor in a dominating Australian line-up.
AUS-W vs IND-W Match Tips
Australia are as clinical as ever in this tournament. Their line-up, depth and professionalism has been spot on. India, known to struggle in pressure games definitely come in as underdogs and will have to really dig deep to push the Australians in the upcoming game.
