  1. Post update

    And that's it from another epic - if rain-sodden - day at the Women's T20 World Cup.

    We'll be back on Sunday morning for Australia v India. At the MCG. With added Katy Perry. Thanks for your company today, hope you can join us then - play gets under way at 07:00 GMT. Bye for now.

  2. RECAP: Australia win war of nerves

    If it was a war of nerves out there after DLS adjusted the target to 98 from 13 overs, Australia held theirs when South Africa failed to take advantage of the powerplay. Lanning marshalled her bowlers superbly and once South Africa's big hitters were back in the hutch, the Aussie bowlers did a great containing job.

  3. RECAP: Lanning leads the line for hosts

    Having lost the toss, Meg Lanning stepped up when it mattered for Australia - she rode her luck a little on the way to 49 not out, after South Africa fluffed a stumping chance, but helped her side to 134-5 from 20 overs when the rain returned...

  4. RECAP: Washout sends England home

    It's time to start wrapping things up - a semi-final day always produces two winners and two losers, but England will feel a little hard done by considering 33 overs were possible in the evening game, but not a single ball was bowled as the heavens opened for most of the day and throughout the afternoon.

    The washout meant India went through by virtue of having won their group.

  5. Post update

    South Africa batter Mignon du Preez on TMS: "Laura Wolvaardt was magnificent throughout the tournament, Nadine de Klerk did so well after coming in for Marizanne, hopefully we have a bright future in front of us with these youngsters. Hopefully we can continue to grow and make the final when we play back home [in 2022]."

  6. Your England highlights of the tournament?

    The way Heather Knight went about her hundred - she's the only English player to score a hundred in Tests, ODIs and T20s. Nat Sciver has been very consistent. But Sophie Ecclestone's world number one now - for me, she's been England's stand-out performer. She gets spin, bounce and amazing dip and that's where I think she gets batters out.

  7. Captain's view

    More from Australia's Meg Lanning: "It was extremely tense - even with the last few balls, we weren't safe. We're still calming down. South Africa put up a great fight today and we had to take it to the last ball."

    On the final: "India are a class side and we're going to have to play well to beat them. I wish the final was tomorrow. I just want to get out there and play."

  8. Get Involved - Memories of 1992

    #bbccricket

    Alan Jones: What Richard (and most people) have forgotten about the 1992 SF was that SA bowled their overs so slowly England only faced 45 of their 50 overs in their allotted time. You could argue SA got what they deserved for their timewasting.

    Mind you, the rain rules in that competition took away the lowest-scoring overs when run chases were calculated - so had the unintended consequence of effectively penalising teams for bowling maidens! And it was because of the rules at that tournament that first inspired Duckworth and Lewis to pool their statistical resources and come up with a better system.

    If there's any game that's going to sell out the MCG, it's Australia v India. We'll get a cracking game of cricket between the two best teams in the competition.

  10. Captain's view

    South Africa captain Dane van Niekerk: "I have to give credit to Australia, they bowled really well. They got off to a flier and I thought we were going to be chasing 160, but Nadine came in for Marizanne and did really well. It was emotional afterwards, to come short every time is difficult, but we win together and lose together as a team. Unfortunately it wasn't our year.

    "It's a very talented team, Wolfie has been incredible down the order - I'm heartbroken for the team."

    These things happen. I'm happy for Australia that they get to play in a home World Cup final.

    The other thing about Duckworth-Lewis was that South Africa won the toss. It was their choice - and their risk to send Australia in.

  16. Player of the match

    Australia captain Meg Lanning, who scored an unbeaten 49: "That was very stressful, with the waiting game, but the ground staff did a great job and we were lucky to get a break in the weather."

  17. Post update

    Australia wicketkeeper Alyssa Healy on TMS: "I have no idea how today unfolded, I thought we might get a 10-over game in, but what a clutch performance with the ball - that was very special. We put a half-decent total on the board, Duckworth-Lewis went in our favour but our bowlers were sensational. South Africa would have been licking their lips chasing that total, but we kept our nerve and took wickets at crucial time."

    On England-India: "I feel for the Poms a little bit, it sounds a bit dirty coming out of my mouth that we got on and they didn't. I'd have loved to have watched that semi-final, but I'm sure they'll be bigger and better next time. We're going to have to scrap hard against India, hopefully they'll put in a flat deck for us at the MCG and it'll play into our hands."

    South Africa are devastated, but they are going to be able to hold their heads up high and reflect on what a good tournament they had.

  19. Post update

    As Australia start their celebrations - their marketing people will be delighted with an Australia-India final in their bid to fill the MCG - the tears are starting to flow among the South Africans.

    It's hard to look past Meg Lanning for player of the match. Captain's knock.
