Washout means Aussies will meet South Africa in T20 World Cup semi-final_1


Australia will play South Africa in the women's Twenty20 World Cup semi-finals on Thursday after the Proteas' last group game against the West Indies was washed out.

Rain fell throughout the night in Sydney on Tuesday night, preventing players from taking to the ground and ensuring South Africa would top Group B.

It also means England will face India in the other semi-final, with both matches to be played at the SCG on Thursday.



If the rain continues in Sydney, South Africa would advance based on its higher group position.

"We did speak about that," Tryon said.

"Hopefully we get a game on on Thursday, but we just have to make sure we are well prepared for Thursday."

Meanwhile Tuesday's washout ended a miserable tournament for the West Indies, who recorded just one win against the lowly-ranked Thailand.
