England U-19 Women top Group 2 as Super Six concludes in World Cup

The Super Six final games have been ended, and the four semi-finalists in the current U-19 Women’s T20 World Cup in South Africa have been announced.

The last Super Six round match was between England and the West Indies, and a powerful England maintained their unblemished record by beating the Windies by a massive score of 95 runs. The victory propelled England to the top of Group 2.

Grace Scrivens led the assault with a half-century, taking England to a score of 179/4, while Ellie Anderson’s match-winning session of 5/12 kept the Windies at 84/8. England will face opponent Australia in their semi-final on Friday, January 27.

England and New Zealand are the only sides yet to be beaten. Both of these squads seem to have just one goal in mind: to win the coveted crown. Another example was England’s performance in the match against the West Indies. More significantly, they needed to win large in order to finish first and arrange a semi-final meeting with archrivals Australia, which they achieved in style.

In the other game of the day, Bangladesh beat the UAE-led by Theertha Satish by five wickets. Batting first, UAE could only manage 69 as Bangladesh’s Rabeya Khan bowled well and took three wickets. In response, Shorna Akhtar’s quickfire 38 off 19 balls enabled Bangladesh reach the goal in 9.1 overs.

As the event nears its conclusion, the four semi-finalists that will compete for a spot in the final are: India and Australia have clinched the top two positions in Group 1, defeating Bangladesh and South Africa, while England’s better net run rate has enabled them jump New Zealand and grab the top spot in Group 2.

On January 27, India will meet New Zealand in the first semi-final at Senwes Park, followed by England and Australia in the second semi-final.
