The inevitable has happened finally as unfortunately 2009 champions England have crashed out of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2020 by the virtue of their inferior placing in the group stages. Heavy rains was always expected at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) on Thursday and without a reserve day, England was always under the threat of losing a spot in the final without even getting a game.
England Women captain Heather Knight was really disappointed on the frustrating outcome. The second semi-final between South Africa Women and Australia Women is also scheduled to be held on the same venue at 01:30 pm IST. In case, rain gods end up playing a spoilsport in this match as well, South Africa Women will directly qualify for the finals on the basis of finishing at the top in the league stages.
