12:38 (IST)

That's all we have for you today. Thank you for your company and we look forward to seeing you for the semi-finals of the Women's T20 World Cup. Until then, see ya.

12:35 (IST)

The Indian spinners, this time led by Radha Yadav, once again set up an easy win for India after tying Sri Lanka down to 113 runs in 20 overs in the first innings and then in the chase it was the usual suspect, Shafali Verma, who came out swinging in her typical style and took the match away. The Lankans didn't grab their chances in the field, which was paramount while defending a low score, but alas they put down Verma a couple of times and allowing her to play her strokes and from thereon there was no coming back. They suffered their third defeat in as many as games, while India on the contrast have completed all their group games with a win.

12:30 (IST)

Harmanpreet Kaur, India captain: It is very important to continue to the momentum when you are winning games. You really work hard, so you can't afford to lose that momentum. I think they understood the wicket very well. You can't bowl same pace and lengths on these wickets, so you need to keep rotating the bowlers. Today I tried to be positive and got some boundaries. In the upcoming games I'll try to give my best.  She [Verma] is someone who loves to play big shots and we don't want to stop her and if she is enjoying and that is cricket, if you are enjoying then continue doing it.

12:26 (IST)

Sri Lanka captain Chamari Athapaththu: I think that the total was not enough on this wicket. We dropped a few chances, especially of Shafali Verma and we couldn’t stop her ultimately. I wanted to stay there till the 17th or 18th over but it was not to be. We hope our batting unit steps up in our next game against Bangladesh.

12:19 (IST)

Radha: I was just thinking to bowl stump-to-stump and keep it simple. As a bowling unit we did really well and hope we continue to do that in the semis. I was thinking of bowling stump-to-stump and nothing else. She (Poonam Yadav) is a legend [laughs].

12:18 (IST)

Radha Yadav for her 4/23 is named Player of the Match

12:14 (IST)

That's it! India beat Sri Lanka by seven wickets. Easy win for Harmanpreet Kaur-led side in Melbourne as they make it four wins out of four matches to top Group A.

India will enter the semi-finals as the only team that is yet to experience a defeat.

12:12 (IST)

After 14 overs,India Women 109/3 ( Jemimah Rodrigues 13 , Deepti Sharma 10)

Jemimah must thank her stars to still be out there in the middle after the Sri Lankan captain put down an absolute sitter after she chipped it mid wicket. Formalities remaining, just four more runs needed.

12:08 (IST)

After 13 overs,India Women 104/3 ( Jemimah Rodrigues 10 , Deepti Sharma 8)

Rodrigues collects her first boundary of the innings as India procure nine risk-free runs to trickle down the required number of runs in single digits. They just need nine more to maintain their 100 % win record in group stages.

FOUR! That's a delightful stroke from Jemimah! Leads with her head, leans into the textbook cover drive, plays it into the gap and takes India past the 100-run mark

Preview: India will look to continue their winning run when they take on Sri Lanka in their final Group A match in the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup. The Indians are on a roll, having sealed their semi-final berth with wins over defending champions Australia (by 17 runs), Bangladesh (by 18 runs) and New Zealand (by 4 runs).

The clash will be inconsequential as the Lankans are already out of the semi-final race, having lost in both their previous outings — against New Zealand (by 7 wickets) and Australia (by 5 wickets).

India have plenty of positives going into Saturday’s clash. Playing quick-fire knocks of 29, 39 and 46, 16-year-old Shafali Verma has looked in good touch and got India off to flying starts in their previous games. Meanwhile, Poonam Yadav has bamboozled the batswomen with her leg-spin, picking up eight wickets so far. The middle order-batting, however, remains an area of concern.

A defeat wouldn’t do any damage to the Indians. However, knowing this unit, they would still bring their A-game to finish the group stages on a high.
