Apart from Reddy's non-utilisation, the other major talking point from India's perspective was their decision to leave out Mithali Raj, their most experienced player and the scorer of back-to-back fifties against Ireland and Pakistan.

While the move has attracted a lot of criticism, Raj's manager Annisha Gupta has slammed India skipper Harmanpreet Kaur calling her "manipulative, lying, immature, undeserving captain" along with saying the team believed in "politics not sport". "The pitch was really tricky, they left some fluffiness on the top and it was pretty hard", said Healy.

At a time when they are still reeling from their semi-final exit in the 2018 World T20, a major controversy has hit the Indian women's team. "And we can see the kind of treatment that Mithali has received despite her brilliant performance and despite showing stability and consistency", she said.

"Mithali was told after the warm-up session on the morning of the semifinal that she doesn't figure in the playing eleven, leaving her disappointed", said Murthy in a chat with The Hindu.

They have a well-balanced side, with Nat Sciver their most risky player having hit a half-century in the semi-final win while going at less than four-an-over with the ball.

The next head to head is between two of the outstanding all-rounders in the women's game, Nat Sciver and Ellyse Perry.

However, the Indian skipper defended her decision. Taniya Bhatia, who opened in Raj's stead, scored 11 off 19 balls, and Patil, who kept her place despite Raj recovering from the knee injury that had kept her out of India's last group game, fell for a first-ball duck and delivered 3.1 wicketless and expensive overs of offspin. "I felt that once we got past 120 our bowlers would have had a good chance of defending that total".

Australian captain Meg Lanning: "We were so ready for tonight's game". England bowled really well, read the wicket really well.

"I think to come here to the West Indies, to play in front of a crowd like that that's 99 percent going for the West Indies, we sort of thrive off that, we love being the underdogs in Australia". We let them get away. "They (captain, coach and selector) discussed the wicket and the coach expressed that the same winning combination against Australia should play", Bhattacharya reportedly noted in her report, accessed by the newspaper. They completely outclassed the Indian team when it mattered the most.
