13:02 hrs IST: Welcome back everyone! We will also be covering Australia's semifinal clash against South Africa. Although even this match could face similar fate as the previous semifinal due to persistent rain.

10:12 hrs IST: Also, Shafali Verma on Wednesday rose to the top spot in the ICC women's T20 International rankings, riding on her stellar run at the ongoing World Cup.

10:09 hrs IST: It is still raining at the SCG. Two sides that are brimming with talent could see rain play spoilsport for one of them.

10:04 hrs IST: It is still raining. If it goes on like this, then India will see themselves enter their maiden final in this tournament. 

09:40 hrs IST: Cut-off time for toss is 11:06 hrs IST and for game to start is 11:21 hrs IST.

09:34 hrs IST: If the second semifinal between South Africa and Australia is also washed out then the Proteas will advance to the final since they topped their group.

09:30 hrs IST: In case the match doesn't happen, India will go into the final, due to better performance and higher points in the group stage, as compared to England.

09:07 hrs IST: Good morning everyone and welcome to Outlook's live coverage of the Women's World T20 semifinal fixture between India and England. Its raining right now, so the toss has been delayed. To have a shortened game, a minimum of 10-overs-a-side is needed.

Aiming to make their maiden final appearance in World T20 history, India will be hope to peak at the right time against England at the SCG. Their fine run of form began with a win against Australia in the tournament opener, followed by beating Bangladesh, New Zealand and Sri Lanka to top Group A with eight points from four matches.

Form is on India's side, but history is with England, who have a 5-0 win-loss record against India in the World T20 championship. Both teams will look to play a full match, weather permitting. A minimum of 10 overs a side will be required for a result. There are no reserve days in the semis. If the match is washed out, then India go through to the final for having topped their pool (A). England had finished second in their group (B).

Last time in the 2018 edition, England defeated India in the semifinals. Before that India lost in 2009, 2012, 2014 and 2016 (all in group stages). The current Indian team has seven players, who played in the 2018 semifinal. The fact that India defeated England in a tri-series ahead of this tournament will give Harmanpreet Kaur's team a leg up.

Shafali Verma will be aiming to continue with her terrific batting displays, after having risen to top spot in the Women's T20 rankings. She has 161 runs in four innings at this World Cup. It's her boisterous start that has helped put runs on the board despite the fact that batting pillars Harmanpreet, Smriti Mandhana and Veda Krishnamurthy haven't really fired in the tournament.

In the bowling department, Poonam Yadav will once again look to continue taking wickets, having already scalped nine from four matches. The leg-spinner is also the tournament's highest wicket-taker.

Meanwhile, England finished second in Group B, with three wins and one defeat.

Their biggest strength has been batting. Natalie Sciver with an average of 67.33 will be the one big wicket that the Indians will try to pocket early.

In the bowling department, Sophie Ecclestone (8 wickets) and Anya Shrubsole (7) will look to dominate the Indian batsmen.

The Teams (from):

India: Harmanpreet Kaur (Captain), Jemimah Rodrigues, Shafali Verma, Smriti Mandhana, Shikha Pandey, Poonam Yadav, Deepti Sharma, Veda Krishnamurthy, Taniya Bhatia (wk), Radha Yadav, Arundhati Reddy, Harleen Deol, Rajeshwari Gayakwad, Richa Ghosh, Pooja Vastrakar.

England: Heather Knight (Captain), Tammy Beaumont, Katherine Brunt, Kate Cross, Freya Davies, Sophie Ecclestone, Georgia Elwiss, Sarah Glenn, Amy Jones (wk), Natalie Sciver, Anya Shrubsole, Mady Villiers, Fran Wilson, Lauren Winfield, Danni Wyatt.
