Indian team has made it to the final of ICC Women's T20 World Cup without playing semi-finals. For the first time, the Indian team reached the final of the ICC Women's T20 World Cup. The first semi-final of the ICC Women's T20 World Cup 2020 was to be played in Sydney between India and England, but the match was canceled due to rain.
The Indian team has reached the final of the Women's T20 World Cup directly without playing the semi-finals based on the rules of the International Cricket Council. Indeed, India won the most matches in the league round and Team India was number one in Group A. This is the reason that Team India has been able to get the final ticket based on points, which is the first time.
Talking about the ICC Women's T20 World Cup, the Indian team has won all four league matches. India first entered the semi-finals by defeating hosts Australia by 17 runs, Bangladesh by 18 runs and New Zealand by 3 runs. At the same time, in the last league match, the Indian team defeated Sri Lanka by 7 wickets. After this the semi-finals were to be against England, which was canceled without a toss due to rain and Team India qualified for finals.
The Indian team competed in the ICC Women's T20 World Cup 6 times from 2009 to 2018, but not a single time the Indian team qualified for the finals. However, Team India played three semi-finals, but did not win the semi-finals even once. Even this time India has not won in the semi-finals, but has entered the finals, because the semi-finals have been washed away in the rain.
Now it remains to be seen whether the Indian team, which reached the final for the first time, will be able to lift the World Cup trophy or not. The World Cup 2020 final will be played at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Sunday 8 March.
