    Mali Ladies won the toss and asked Rwanda to bat. They made 246 for 1.

    In reply, Mali managed to bat for 20 overs and made 30 for nine to lose by 216.

      Saw Shami's hat trick in the final over v Afghanistan. That was special. Afghanistan put it up to India who were maybe a bit complacent though they always had a slight edge. Bumrah is some bowler, saw him in Malahide in the 1-day about a year ago. India are strong and well balanced.

        Pakistan have won the toss and are batting v Bangladesh. They need to win by 316 runs to overtake New Zealand and qualify for the final.

        What are the odds??

        EDIT The Grauniad, my source of the above data appears to have been wrong.

        Pakistan scored 315 for 9 in their 50 overs and according to Cricinfo, they must bowl out Bangla Desh for 7 or fewer to qualify for the Semi-Finals.

          Pakistan are not good enough nor BD weak enough for Pak to get the 450 min they needed to have any real chance. England have found their best form but Australia usually get the better of them and India in the semi (probably) will up their game after losing to England a couple of games ago. My prediction? Austraaaalia v India with Indian batting a bit better than Australian but Starc is a very very good bowler. Kolhi can win it for India.

            Rain finished play today with NZ 211/5 with just 4 overs left. You'd think India will get home comfortably from there. Highlight of the day was overthrows TWICE from the same ball due to sloppy backing up. Kohli..........was......not.....pleased. Added spice was Bumrah was the bowler. A few players will be avoiding those 2 in the dressing room. If there's a washout tomorrow India will go through based on pool placings.

              It was a bit ridiculous, really. If they rain had stopped in time for there to be a minimum of 20 overs in an Indian Innings, then that is what would have happened.

              Because it didn't, they will continue the New Zealand innings in the morning.

                If you're talking Duckworth Lewis calculation I think that would have suited India anyway with all wickets to chase a score. I think NZ just couldn't get runs from the Indian bowlers which is no disgrace as they're a class outfit but let's see if India can score more fluently. Be very very major shock if not though.

                  Test Match Special said that if India got 46 overs to bat, their target would have been 240ish. If they got 20, it would have been 148. NZ's best chance, they said, would have been the latter scenario, but that, as you imply, was very gettable.

                    New Zealand ended up on 239 for 8.

                    India scored a run off each of the first two balls of the innings but are 5 for 3 after four overs.

                      43 for 4 from 15 overs at Drinks. Pant is looking settled on 20 no. If he can stay there, India should do it.

                        70 for 4 from 20. They are motoring along keeping the required rate below a run a ball.

                        NZ have bowled six wides so far. That's effectively an extra over not to mention the six runs.

                          Pant runs out of patience as the rate drops and is caught at the boundary. 71 for 5 after 22.5.

                          Dhoni is in now. The fun starts here. 169 needed from 163 balls.

                            92 for 5 after 30. Dhoni is beginning to wake up, scoring five in the last over. 148 needed from 120 balls.

                              92 for 6 Dhoni is in danger of running out of partners.

                                Jadeja has just got the first 6 of the innings.

                                Could this be the start of something?

                                106 for 6 after 33.

                                Cricinfo noted a while ago:

                                "Yesterday India needed 148 runs in 20 overs if game was there.. Today they need exactly the same but with 5 wickets less"
