Alyssa Healy took the Player of the Match Award in her last appearance in the tournament and the opener is our tip for Australia Women’s highest run scorer in this match. Megan Schutt has a strike-rate of 10.5 across this competition and is a strong choice for Australia Women’s top wicket taker against India Women.
Smriti Mandhana hit 87 runs from 56 balls in Match 18 and we are backing the India Women’s opener to be their highest run scorer against Australia Women. Renuka Singh has taken seven wickets in the competition and she is our pick for India Women’s top wicket taker in this game.
As one of the top bowlers in this campaign, we recommend backing Megan Schutt to take over 1.5 wickets in this clash.

AUS Women Team News & Playing 11
AUS-W Team News
Alyssa Healy sat out the final group stage game against South Africa Women due to a slight quad strain but will be back to full fitness ahead of this semi-final. Annabel Sutherland replaced Healy in the team but will make way for her in the XI.
AUS-W Key Players
Alyssa Healy - The opener will come back into the team full of confidence with a batting average of 73.00 from her three innings in the Women’s T20 World Cup 2023 so far.
Tahlia McGrath - The all-rounder was awarded Player of the Match Award against South Africa Women. She has a strike-rate of 142.79 in WT20Is.
Megan Schutt - The 30 year old is the joint top wicket taker in the tournament. She picked up the wicket of middle-order batter Delmi Tucker in Match 15.
AUS-W Team Form
Australia Women have been playing excellent cricket and have won all four matches by impressive margins across this campaign.
Radha Yadav was unwell ahead of Monday’s win over Ireland Women and Devika Vaidya came into the side. She did not get an opportunity to influence the game with either bat or ball and we do expect Yadav to return to the team for this semi-final.
IND-W Key Players
Smriti Mandhana - Only England Women’s Nat Sciver has scored more runs than India Women’s opener. She hit nine fours and three sixes in the game against Ireland Women.
Harmanpreet Kaur - The skipper has not been at her best so far in the tournament but remains one of India Women’s most talented players. She is highly rated by Australia Women after strong WBBL performances.
Renuka Singh - the pace bowler is one of only two players to have taken a 5-wicket haul in the tournament. She has a strike-rate of 11.1 across the last four games.
IND-W Team Form
Although they were beaten by England Women during the group stage, India Women have won three of their last four matches in this format.
There are many top international players across both teams and some very strong players in the squads who will not make the XIs. However, it is Australia Women who have the greater team and depth.
AUS-W vs IND-W Top Team Batsmen
For Australia Women, Alyssa Healy, Meg Lanning and Beth Mooney are our batting choices. Captain Lanning has scored over 3300 WT20I runs and has hit 400 fours in this format. Mooney scored 56 not out against Sri Lanka Women in Match 11 of this tournament.
We are backing Shafali Verma, Smriti Mandhana and Jemimah Rodrigues as our batting recommendations for India Women. Rodrigues has a top score of 53 not out in this tournament so far. Verma has hit five half-centuries in WT20I cricket across her career.
We recommend Megan Schutt, Ellyse Perry and Georgia Wareham as our bowling picks for Australia Women. Spinner Wareham has six wickets from her three appearances in the tournament so far. Perry took 1-8 against South Africa Women and got the big wicket of Laura Wolvaardt.
For India Women, Renuka Singh, Deepti Sharma and Rajeshwari Gayakwad are our bowling tips for India Women. Sharma took five wickets across her first three appearances in the competition. Gayakwad has 58 wickets from 53 WT20I innings with the ball.
Not only have Australia Women been the most impressive side in the 2023 Women’s T20 World Cup so far, they also have an excellent record over India Women. However, India Women did beat them in the group stage in the last T20 World Cup and also beat them in a super-over last year. We expect India Women to be competitive but our prediction is for Australia Women to be too strong and to get the win.
