ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2023: South Africa has secured their place in the semi-finals of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup after a spectacular win against Bangladesh at Newlands. Following their loss to Sri Lanka in their opening Group 1 match, South Africa made a remarkable comeback, chasing down 114 in their final group game to book a spot in the semis. With this win, the four teams that will compete in the knockout stage of the 2023 ICC Women’s T20 World Cup have been confirmed.
The semi-finals, which will feature four of the top five teams in the world, will take place on Thursday and Friday at Newlands in Cape Town. The first semi-final will see defending champions Australia take on India, while the second semi-final will see England face South Africa.
Australia is the top-ranked side in the world and is aiming for a hat-trick of Women’s T20 World Cup titles. Their dominant performance in the group stage makes them the favorites to win the tournament. England, who topped their qualifying group with four straight wins, is also in great form and has the best net run rate in the tournament. India, who made it through with relative ease, will be a strong contender in the knockout stages, while South Africa will rely on their strong bowling attack to make a mark in the tournament.
The knockout stages promise to be exciting, with each team bringing its strengths to the table. The semi-final winners will play for the trophy at the same venue on Sunday.
