Australia Women vs West Indies Women, 1st Semi-Final, Women's World T20, 2013/14

Commentary

Australia Women won by 8 runs | Australia Women Vs West Indies Women Live Score, 1st Semi-Final

That's it from the first semi-final. The action now shifts to the men's semi-final between West Indies and Sri Lanka later in the evening. I will also be looking forward to your company for the second semi-final when the South African women lock horns with the English women tomorrow. Cheers for your company. Farewell for now.
Meg Lanning: 'It was tough today. West Indies are a dangerous side. It was great to get over the line. We watnted to get the left-hander to the top. You can try different things in T20. Healy played an important innings. Hopefully, she can continue in the final. I was happy once Osborne took the catch to remove Dottin.'
Merissa Aguilleira: It was really disappointing. After coming from a devastating tour of New Zealand, we did well to reach the semifinal. The hope was there. We believe in the batters.We showed good fight. It has been a great experience here in Bangladesh. Good luck to South Africa and the others. We noticed Darren Sammy's boys, we believe in them. We are staying to watch the men and support them. Thanks to the people of Bangladesh for supporting us.'
Erin Osborne: 'I was nervous during the catch. Dottin is a clean striker of the ball. She's a talented player. Stacy batted well as well. There was belief in the group. The tough games in the group held us in good stead. It is a wonderful feeling and it is nice to contribute to the team. I am looking forward to the final.'
Erin Osborne is the Player of the Match for her figures of 1-18 to go with the crucial catch of Dottin under pressure.
The players exchange plesantries. High-fives in the Aussie camp. They deserve credit for holding their nerve at the death. West Indies, having progressed to their third straight semi-final, fail to break the big game jinx. The West Indian openers enjoyed a brisk start but stumbled in the middle overs aside from falling short of nailing the lusty blows at the death. The wicket of the dangerous Dottin turned the tide firmly in Australia's favor. Do stay with us for the presentation ceremony.
