And here’s Raf Nicholson’s match report from Antigua:

Updated

That’ll do us. Thanks for your company on the OBO throughout semi-final day here in Antigua. We have the blockbuster final on Saturday, Australia v England. We’ll catch you back here then. Bye for now!

Updated

And now for Heather Knight, England skipper (excuse typos, bashed out as she spoke)

“The way the spinners bowled in the middle overs was outstanding. We knew it was tricky fot batters coming in whenever we took a wicket. Kirstie (Gordon) has been outstanding on her first tour with the way she has bowled and spun it past the bat. And Sophie (Ecclestone) as a young spinner as well, the quality she has bowled with over the last year.”

On the batting: “That compusure, the way they played the spinners. The way we practiced with our coaches, we knew what they were going to throw at us and we dealt with it really well.”

On why she didn’t bowl an extra over when on a hat-trick: “I think Anya might have killed me. My role is to bowl a couple of overs when we need it and let the main bowlers bare the most of the bowling.”

Worried about Beaumont and Wyatt? “Not at all, I think the conditions have been very tricky in St Lucia and here it has been hard work batting. They are going to ge low scores some of the time I want them to be positive. The big stage of the final they will be desperate to do well.”

Playing Australia: “It is going to be a great occasion so hopefully the crowd will comg out and support both teams.”

Harmanpreet Kaur, Indian captain, is up. “Whatever we decided we decided for the team,” she said of the decision to omit Mithali Raj. “Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn’t. We played really well in the tournament so one game doesn’t decide if we are a good team or a bad team. This is a learning experience for us a we have a very young team. At upcoming tournaments we will play good cricket. have learend a lot through this tourament.”

She went on to say she was happy they dragged it to the 18th over, which is a bit odd given they were right on top at the power play, but there we have it. Charlotte Edwards on radio is scathing of that assessment from the Indian skipper. “They bottled it,” she says, more bluntly.

“We have a young team and we have to work on our mental strength because in the future we are going to play in these sorts of games,” Kaur concluded.

Amy Jones is player of the match!

Amy Jones, who made 53* in 47 balls, is receiving her award.

“It was just fantastic to get the win and Nat came in an took the pressure off straight away,” she says. “We just tried to stay relaed. Nat is always trying to get me to rin hard. We just wanted to b there at the end.”

And on their wonderful preparation: “Playing at 8pm gies you a lot of thinking time so we have been thinking about it and we planned we knew their attack was high quality spinners but the plan paid off so we’re very happy.”

Well played. We’ll hear from Heather Knight and Harmanpreet Kaur shortly.

ENGLAND ARE INTO THE WORLD T20 FINAL! (England win by eight wickets with 17 balls to spare)

Amy Jones does get her 50, pulling another four of her own to reach the milestone and complete the match. An unbeaten partnership of 92 runs has gone the trick for England, who will meet Australia in the decider on Saturday.

Nat Sciver brings up her half-century in 39 deliveries!

17th over: England 112-2 (Jones 49, Sciver 52) Target 113. Sciver gets to 50 with another smashing pull shot. So many pull shots, so much power. She raises her bat to the fans, which include her family. Jones keeps the strike with single so she will get the chance to do the same with one run to win.

This match-winning partnership sums up how much more intelligent England’s batting has been under Mark Robinson.

Assessment of conditions and risk light years ahead of where they were at the start of 2017.

And while we’re here - Sciver for #SPOTY? #WT20

16th over: England 103-2 (Jones 46, Sciver 46) Target 113. I’ve realised, belatedly, that there is a difference of opinion between the card I’m using and the scoreboard here. Let’s go with the latter, Sciver slightly ahead. And more runs to add when Amy Jones leans back and crunches Sharma over midwicket for a boundary that brings up the England 100. Ten off it, leaving ten runs to win. What a partnership this has been.

15th over: England 93-2 (Jones 41, Sciver 41) Target 113. Rogrigues makes it six bowlers tried by Kaur, searching for anything to break this stand and give her side some slight hope. But it doesn’t come, six runs added instead, including some rapid running by the set pair. Both are 41 from 36 balls; this stand 69 from 61. Nice.

14th over: England 87-2 (Jones 36, Sciver 40) Target 113. That’s the shot Sciver played so well when she made the decision in 2016 to start trying to hit sixes on the reg, shuffling across her off-stump before hoicking over square leg. This doesn’t go the full journey but the four she gets for it takes the pressure straight off at the start of Patil’s new spell. Four singles to follow, making another eight to go good for England and leaving just 26 from 36 balls for England to progress to the final.

13th over: England 79-2 (Jones 34, Sciver 34) Target 113. Kaur persists with the Poonam Plan. Five singles? They’ll take that. It’s cruisy right now for England as they near in on the magic number.

Brisk fifty partnership from Jones & Sciver, who have taken all the sting out of this match for England. #WT20

12th over: England 74-2 (Jones 31, Sciver 32) Target 113. A better over from Radha, who doesn’t give up the boundary ball. “England would already have had an extra over if they hadn’t been chasing all those off-side wides,” emails Adam Hirst. “Just leave them alone!”

Yes and no. England needed to break them well outside and it worked by moving around in the crease to reach those wider deliveries. It definitely threw their opposition.

11th over: England 70-2 (Jones 29, Sciver 30) Target 113. Hemalatha replaces Patil, so India have scrapped Plan A. It matters little, Sciver is every bit the player tonight that she was in last year’s World Cup, pulling with authority through midwicket to the boundary once more. India cannot build up the necessary pressure to create a mistake. Ten from the over.

10th over: England 60-2 (Jones 27, Sciver 22) Target 113. More of the same from Sciver, who this time decides to get back and pull rather than cut, the result the same, splitting the sweepers to get a third boundary in as many overs. With 30 runs in the last four overs, whisper it, England have cracked this chase open. They needed 53 from the final ten overs to book a place in the final.

Updated

9th over: England 52-2 (Jones 26, Sciver 15) Target 113. Excellent batting, especially from Sciver, who is the designated aggressor. After three singles are milked from Patil, she elects to lean back and carve a powerful cut shot, picking the gap and finding the boundary. “England have done their homework here,” says Charlotte Edwards, noting that Sciver is willing to get back in the crease and hit hard.

8th over: England 44-2 (Jones 24, Sciver 9) Target 113. Here comes Poonam Yadav, such a tough bowler for England to play in the past given her pint-sized height and sloooow legspinners. The unorthodox field, with three on the circle either side of point, remains in place. But much as it was in Patil’s first over, they find a way to find seven runs anyway. Good batting. Sciver is very close to splitting the two deep midwickets with a powerful pull shot but Mandhana does very well in the deep to save a couple. Dare I say it, both of these players look comfortable in the early stages of this vital stanza.

7th over: England 37-2 (Jones 21, Sciver 5) Target 113. The game moves into a new and important period with Patil bowling the first of what will be eight overs of very slow, very tough spin. And Sciver is dropped first ball of it! That would have been huge. Miscued square leg, not a tough chance, Poonam puts it down! With THREE fielders on the circle between backward point and cover point - the plan to bore England out with deliveries waaaay outside the off-stump - the pair are nimble enough to work around the crease and find five singles elsewhere. Charlotte Edwards is very critical of such a defensive strategy from India given that they are only defending 112.

6th over: England 30-2 (Jones 18, Sciver 3) Target 113. The final over of the power play, Radha to send it down with her left-arm finger spin. Four singles and a wide is their lot, the field now set to go out. Will Sciver try and muscle a few over the rope? Watching her range hit in practice a fair bit over the last fortnight, she can get it over without getting a lot on it. We’ll see. So many overs to come from Patil and Poonam, she won’t have much choice if she wants to find/clear the boundary.

WICKET! Wyatt c Rodrigues b Sharma 8 (England 24-2)

Just at the moment Amy Jones had England looking positive, Wyatt has holed out. There isn’t anything wrong with what she was trying to do - hit Sharma back over her head - but the ball, once again, held in the pitch so the shot ended up at deep midwicket. Rodrigues made tough work of it, slipping as the ball was on its way, but she kept her cool and got it done.

5th over: England 25-2 (Jones 16, Sciver 0) Target 113.

4th over: England 22-1 (Wyatt 7, Jones 14) Target 113. Amy Jones goes BANG over long-on, nailing a legitimate lofted drive well over the advertising boards. SIX RUNS! That’s a very attractive shot. For so many years she has craved the chance to be a legitimate matchwinner with the bat and she is getting that opportunity right now on this huge stage.

@bbctms @henrymoeranBBC @ejrainfordbrent That was Amy Jones' first T20I six.

Worst collapse from the fall of the 3rd wicket at the Women's World T20:

IND 8-23 v ENG today
SA 8-26 v WI, 2018
BAN 8-27 v WI, 2018
PAK 8-31 v ENG, 2009
PAK 8-38 v NZ, 2018#WT20

— hypocaust (@_hypocaust) November 23, 2018



3rd over: England 14-1 (Wyatt 6, Jones 7) Target 113. It was always going to be hard work batting fourth on this track today so England are going to have to do plenty right here. But fair play to Amy Jones, who makes room for herself to play a forehand smash over the bowler Sharma to record her first boundary - make that, England’s first boundary. I don’t mind that at all; this is not a pitch for playing conventionally.

WICKET! Beaumont c b Radha 1 (England 4-1)

After surviving a direct hit, Beaumont hits a catch straight to midwicket where Reddy is there to take it safely. It was a premeditated shot, shuffling across her stumps to try and find a gap, but it hasn’t worked.

2nd over: England 6-1 (Wyatt 4, Jones 1) Target 113. Jones off the mark with her most productive shot, the cover drive, for one. Wyatt finds a single out there too, keeping the strike. With Beaumont gone, so much now rides on how Wyatt goes over the next handful of overs.

1st over: England 3-0 (Wyatt 2, Beaumont 1) Target 113. The WinViz predictor has England at 51% as the innings starts with Wyatt defending then taking a single to cover to get going, Beaumont then doing the same. A third single from Wyatt behind square off Sharma keeps her the strike. A conservative start. Will one of this pair take on the power play now they’ve had a look? With the roller on the pitch between innings, it will be the only decent time to bat (relatively).

Deadly, Edmonds, Tufnell, Gordon #WWT20

— Phil Walker (@Phil_Wisden) November 23, 2018



India in a tight huddle. They’ve been together for a good 90 seconds on the boundary rope. England’s opening pair of Wyatt and Beaumont then follow them onto the field. Talking to the Wyatt during the week, she told me that in the minutes before they go to bat the rule is that they must talk about anything but cricket and the task ahead of them. How difficult must that discipline have been tonight, knowing they are a half-decent start away from breaking the back of this chase in the power play? So, can England hold their nerve and get the job done? Stick with me. PLAY!

INDIA ALL-OUT 112! WICKET! Sharma run out Hazell 7.

Deepti Sharma running to the danger end to keep the board ticking over in the final over but Hazell’s throw made it to Jones in time. India are dismissed with three balls remaining in their innings. Considering where they were when Mandhana was cracking along early, that’s a long way short of satisfactory. In saying that, close to run a ball will be no stroll in the park given the way this track is playing and India’s group of capable spinners. England require 113 to make the World T20 Final.

WICKET! Reddy st Jones b Ecclestone 6 (India 112-9)

Beautifully called by Charlotte Edwards on TMS who predicted a stumping and a stumping it was, Ecclestone spinning past the edge of Reddy who wasn’t in the same postcode when Jones whipped off the bails. Five balls to go.

19th over: India 111-8 (Sharma 6, Reddy 6) Sharma nearly runs herself out! They had to take on Wyatt (again) who just misses, in near-identical fashion to the previous wicket. Reddy, new to the crease, capitalises from a rare poor delivery from Shrubsole on leg stump, whipping it around the corner for a valuable boundary. Knight to bowl the final over?

WICKET! Radha run out Wyatt 4 (India 104-8)

Tip and run to cover from the first ball of Shrubsole’s new over, but Wyatt is brilliant in close with her collect and throw, nailing the non-strikers’ stumps direct to run out Radha by a few inches.

18th over: India 104-7 (Sharma 5, Radha 4) Hazell’s turn to keep the pressure on and she does it well: no boundary balls on offer here. But as Charlotte Edwards notes, being such a tough pitch, any chase will be hard work when England walk out to bat.

WICKET! Patil c Winfield b Knight 0 (India 99-7)

First ball! Knight will be on a hat-trick if she gives herself another over, and let’s hope she does as she has 3/9 from two so far. Patil shovelled her towards long-on and Winfield made fantastic ground before taking the low chance tidily.

17th over: India 99-7 (Sharma 4)

Updated

WICKET! Hemalatha c Beaumont b Knight 1 (India 99-6)

Knight backed her own off-spin and it has worked a treat, picking up a second wicket with Hemalatha picking out Beaumont at cover. This game is moving very quickly.

WICKET! Kaur c Sciver b Gordon 16 (India 94-5)

She’s gone! Sensational bowling from Kirstie Gordon, giving it a a rip and winning an edge from Kaur. It flies hiiiigh into the Antiguan night sky and Nat Sciver takes it cleanly. This is a MASSIVE moment in this game and they celebrate accordingly. Gordon finishes with 2/20. Superb effort.

16th over: India 95-5 (Sharma 1, Hemalatha 0)

WICKET! Krishnamurthy c Jones b Gordon 2 (India 93-4)

Another top edge, taken safely by Jones. Gordon, who has bowled nicely, gets a reward. The more important job for the spinner now becomes keeping Kaur off strike for as long as possible with five balls left in the over.

15th over: India 93-3 (Kaur 16, Krishnamurthy 2) Shrubsole now, Knight backing in her vice-captain to find a way through the Indian leader. But suggesting that Kaur fancies her chances against spin, she plays the England attack leader conservatively and respectfully.

WICKET! Rodrigues run out Beaumont. (India 89-3)

A direct hit from Beaumont as the Indian pair came back for a risky second run, the number three’s run-a-ball 26 is complete. In an over where so much has already happened as Harmanpreet danced and flayed Gordon over extra cover, inside-out, for six. There’s one player in the entire women’s game who can play that shot with so much power when not getting to the pitch of the delivery and it is Kaur. From the one ball Krishnamurthy had to see off, she was nearly stumped. It is not overstating matters to say that England’s entire campaign will be dictated by how they handle Kaur now that she’s flicked the switch.

14th over: India 89-3 (Kaur 14, Krishnamurthy 0)

13th over: India 77-2 (Rodrigues 21, Kaur 7) Nat Sciver to break up the spin, bowling her second over. “Something is going to happen here,” predicts Charlotte Edwards. Unfortunately for England, it’s back to back boundaries to finish the set, Rodrigues learning back and cutting one four then steering another behind point next ball. Harmanpreet’s turn.

12th over: India 67-2 (Rodrigues 12, Kaur 6) England’s trio of spinners are putting in a shift here. It’s Ecclestone’s turn, who goes for three runs in an over that nearly brought a run out early then finished with Rodrigues top-edging to where a short third man might have been a chance for a catch if in position. Just 17 runs from the last five overs for India. Batting is getting harder by the minute.

11th over: India 64-2 (Rodrigues 11, Kaur 5) Hazell getting so much spin that a ball pitching well outside the off stump ends up a legside wide. Charlotte Edwards, who played for England about 400 times from memory, says this movement is more like day five of a men’s Test Match in India than a women’s T20 international. Four other singles, with both players happy to pick out the sweepers. It can’t be long at all before Kaur shifts gears, or dies trying.

10th over: India 59-2 (Rodrigues 9, Kaur 3) Gordon, who has been Knight’s most dependable spinner in this tournament, gets the first proper crack at Kaur. It’s another good over from the left-arm ortho, offering only singles from her bowling so far. 120? 130?

9th over: India 55-2 (Rodrigues 7, Kaur 1) The captain Kaur off the mark first ball, keeping the strike with the cut. Just five runs and the wicket from the Knight over. It’s all about what happens now, while Kaur is new to the crease.

Updated

WICKET! Bhatia c Sciver b Knight 11 (India 53-2)

A miscue from the bottom of the bat ends up in the hands of Sciver, running back at midwicket - reminiscent of the catch she took late in the World Cup Final. It might be advantage India, though, as Bhatia’s dismissal brings Harmanpreet to the middle.

8th over: India 50-1 (Bhatia 11, Rodrigues 3) Kirstie Gordon’s turn, the left-arm spinner who made her debut at the start of this England World T20 campaign and has immediately looked at home. That might have something to do with the 22 internationals she played for Scotland before qualifying. Anyway, she’s right on the money from the get-go here, spinning the ball as hard as she can to take advantage of the surface. The one that doesn’t rip, however, nearly finds Rodrigues short, just getting her foot back after Jones took the bails. Just two from the set. Nicely done.

7th over: India 48-1 (Bhatia 10, Rodrigues 2) Five singles taken from the Hazell over. As Charlotte Edwards notes on TMS, delaying Harmanpreet Kaur’s entry by having this pair knocking it around for a while isn’t the worst result at all.

WICKET! Mandhana c&b Ecclestone 34 (India 43-1)

Mandhana returns a catch to Ecclestone! It’s not a good ball, pitching half way down the track. But the Indian megastar, given so long to work out where she was going to clobber it, hit the softest catch back to Ecclestone - even softer than the one she grassed off Shrubsole from the same batter. She made no mistake this time around, though. It took the entire power play to get going but England are at last heading in the right direction.

6th over: India 43-1 (Bhatia 7)

Updated

Knight turns to the experience of Danielle Hazell, keeping two overs up the sleeve for Shrubsole. She spins the first hard, past Bhatia and Amy Jones, adding two byes to the cause. A single behind square gives Mandhana a couple of opportunities to let the good times role and she does just that, dancing inside-out over extra cover for another boundary. She’s 28 from 19.

(Also, sorry for the confusion of having England batting in my earlier posts. It’s been a long day/week/decade. All fixed now)

4th over: India 28-0 (Bhatia 4, Mandhana 24) Can the young Lancastrian keep her cool with the ball after dropping that catch? Straight after the error it is Ecclestone from the Andy Roberts End. But Mandhana is in remarkable touch here, hitting the two best shots of the day in the space of four balls: a sweep shot to die for followed by a superb lofted drive over long-on for SIX! If England don’t get rid of her soon this could get ugly and fast. “The most talented batter in the world,” concludes Ebony Rainford-Brent on TMS.

Updated

3rd over: India 18-0 (Bhatia 4, Mandhana 14) Top edge! But doesn’t go to hand. It’s already an absorbing contest between Shrubsole and Mandhana, two of the best in the world at what they do. Next ball, she steers a boundary behind point, using what pace there is - superb batting. But then, to end the over, DROPPED CATCH! Oh my, that’s a simple catch at cover, Mandhana pushing it to Ecclestone (that pitch again), who puts it down moving slightly to her left. That hurts and every England fan know it.

Updated

2nd over: India 9-0 (Bhatia 4, Mandhana 5) Shooooooooooooot. Smriti Mandhana, who put a month-long clinic during the KSL this English summer, is off the mark with a glorious square drive off Sciver - on a track that’s been close to impossible to drive on. Class. A couple of singles in there too. I wonder how Knight will manage the overs here?

Updated

1st over: India 3-0 (Bhatia 3, Mandhana 0) Anya is swinging it around corners to begin, each of her six deliveries hooping big. It is well handled by Bhatia, who got off the mark with a squeeze behind square. The left-handed Mandhana, with one ball to negotiate, is beaten outside the off-stump. Superb bowling from England’s numero uno.

Updated

Anthems: done. The best bit was when about half a dozen of the England players were arm in arm during the Indian anthem as well. But they belted out GSTQ, as did their very healthy crew of friends and family, totalling 50 odd. Anya Shrubsole has the ball in her hand, running away from us at the Curtly Ambrose End. Taniya Bhatia is on strike. PLAY!

Talking my own theory up here, but I hope Anya Shrubsole makes runs again later on.

Harmanpreet Kaur and Smriti Mandhana each average over 40 against spin in T20Is, but just 20.90 and 18.38 against pace respectively. Tonight’s game will be won and lost in Nat Sciver and Anya Shrubsole’s combined 8 overs.#ENGvIND #WT20 https://t.co/oK6l4HRGVV

ICYMI. Here is the report from the first semi, where Australia - led wonderfully by Meg Lanning, Rachael Haynes and Ellyse Perry - smashed the West Indies by 71 runs.

The teams as selected.

England: Danielle Wyatt, Tammy Beaumont, Amy Jones (wk), Nat Sciver, Heather Knight (c), Lauren Winfield, Sophia Dunkley, Anya Shrubsole, Danielle Hazell, Sophie Ecclestone, Kirstie Gordon.

India: Taniya Bhatia (wk), Smriti Mandhana, Jemimah Rodrigues, Harmanpreet Kaur (c), Veda Krishnamurthy, Dayalan Hemalatha, Deepti Sharma, Arundhati Reddy, Radha Yadav, Anuja Patil, Poonam Yadav.

To be honest, I’m still coming to terms with the Mithali Raj news.

Harmanpreet Kaur wins the toss, India to bat first

Blimey, Mithali Raj isn’t playing. That’s remarkable. They’ve left out Mithali Raj and stuck with the same side that won last Saturday. I cannot believe this.

Heather Knight confirms that England would have batted as well. They are also unchanged from their loss on Sunday night, so Danielle Hazell keeps her place ahead of Linsey Smith.

Welcome to the second-semi final of the Women's World T20!

We know that Australia will be playing in the decider on Saturday night after their emphatic 71-run victory over the West Indies, but who will join them: India or England? This blockbuster awaits here at Antigua.

If you didn’t watch the first semi, the pitch is as slow as slow can be. It makes the task that much trickier for England’s top order against an Indian attack that thrives on taking pace off the ball as a starting point.

There has to be at least some chance that Mark Robinson and Heather Knight play all four spinners as a consequence. If they stick with three, the decision looks to be between left-arm orthodox newcomer Linsey Smith or veteran off-spinner Danielle Hazell. We’ll find out at the toss.

As for India, they have been by some margin the best batting team in this tournament, making it out of the group stage without losing a game, or without a side coming close for that matter. More good news for the Indian side is that veteran champion Mithali Raj is back in the side tonight having missed their win over Australia due to ilness or injury - we never really got to the bottom of it once and for all. But she’s in tonight.

Stick with the OBO over the next few hours. I suspect, one way or another, this will be a fascinating struggle. And I use that word intentionally. It’s going to be a scrap. As ever, hit me up on the email or on twitter. I’ll be back with the toss and teams shortly.
