AU-W vs IN-W Dream11 Prediction & Fan2Play Possible 11 Pitch Report: Women’s T20 World Cup 2023 Semi-Final 1 | AUS-W vs IND-W Dream11 Prediction Today | Cape Town Pitch Report

Australia and India will lock horns in the first semi-final of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2023.

Australia finished at the top of the points table in Group A with four wins in four matches. They are yet to lose a game in the tournament. The Aussie side is the strongest team in women’s cricket. They have exceptional depth in both batting and bowling. The likes of Alyssa Healy, Beth Mooney, Ellyse Perry, Ashleigh Gardner, Tahlia McGrath, Meg Lanning, Megan Schutt, Darcie Brown and others form a very strong and intimidating team.

Indian, meanwhile, finished in second position in Group B with three wins in four games. Their only defeat came against England. The Indian team is in decent form but there are a few issues which they must fix before the semi-final. Harmanpreet Kaur’s form is a big concern and she must perform in this game if India is to win the match. The batting units lack consistency while the bowlers also need to be disciplined with the ball. India will have to be at their best to give themselves any chance of winning the game.
