Women's World T20: England finish second in Group, to face in-form India in semifinals

India will face a formidable England in the second semifinals on Friday after the West Indies defeated 2009 champions by four wickets in their last group match of the ICC Women's World T20.
India have been invincible so far in the tournament, winning all their three games in the group stage. The in-form team will also have revenge on its mind, having lost to 
England in the 50-over World Cup final last year.
En route to the semifinals, Harmanpreet Kaur's side also hammered three-time former champions Australia in its last pool match.
Defending champions West Indies, on the other hand, topped group A with eight points after beating England in the last-over thriller to set up a clash with Australia in the first semifinals in Antigua on November 22.
In the last group A match, the West Indies dished out a disciplined performance as they first restricted England to 115-8 and then overhauled the target with three balls to spare, riding on Deandra Dottin's 52-ball 48.
After winning the toss, West Indies opening bowler Shakera Selman picked up two early wickets.
A mid-innings collapse then reduced England to 50 for six before Sophia Dunkley (35) and Anya Shrubsole (29) put on a 58-run partnership.
