India reach maiden Women's T20 World Cup final after rain washes out England semi
- Thursday's first semi-final was called off due to rain in Sydney as India moved through.
India progressed to their first Women's T20 World Cup decider after rain ruined the semi-final as England were sent home without taking to the field.
Thursday's first semi-final was abandoned due to rain in Sydney, with India automatically qualifying for Sunday's showpiece in Melbourne as Group A winners.
Play was meant to start at 15:00 local time at the SCG before persistent rain forced the final-four clash to be called off at 16:08.
