Australia Women are being led by Meg Lanning in this cricket World Cup. After losing the first cricket game against India, they bounced back strongly to win the next three encounters against Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and New Zealand Women.
They stuttered a bit against New Zealand in the last match but managed to use their experience to win the game in the end. After looking slightly off-colour at the beginning of the tournament, they seem to be nearing their best. However, they have got a big blow in the form of injury to Elyssa Perry. She has been ruled out of the World T20 now.
Our prediction is of the inclusion of Annabel Sutherland in place of injured Perry.
Here is our prediction of Australia Women’s playing XI:
- Alyssa Healy
- BL Mooney
- A Gardner
- MM Laning
- Annabel Sutherland
- RL Haynes
- A Sutherland
- NJ Carey
- G Wareham
- JL Jonassen
- M Schutt
South Africa Women

They have been excellent in this tournament so far. In the last full cricket game played against Pakistan, they managed to put up a score of 135 runs and their bowlers defended the same and won the game by 17 runs. Their last game was abandoned due to rain.
Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played the last cricket game.

Expert Prediction: AUSW vs SAW
Australia Women will be taking on South Africa Women in yet another semifinal. They have been the constant features of the knockout games since its inception in women’s cricket. However, this time they will be facing an inspirational South Africa Women’s team who seem to be hellbent on creating history.
The road has not been rosy for Australia due to the loss in the opening cricket game against India and some injuries following that. Despite the roadblocks, they have stuck to their tasks and have been unbeaten since the first cricket game. Beth Mooney and Ashleigh Gardner have been heroes with the bat, whereas the bowlers have shared the workload.
South Africa, on the other hand, have got fine performances from their experienced players. Their batting and bowling have clicked on different occasions and have been very reliable. Lizelle Lee has already hammered a ton in the tournament, whereas Sam Ismail has been too hot to handle as always.
These two teams have only faced each other in four cricket games. The last encounter was played all the way back in 2016 and all the four matches have been expectedly won by Australian cricket team. South Africa would like to take inspiration from that fact and would like Australia to take them seriously from now on.
Our prediction is of a win for Australia in this game of cricket since they have defeated South Africa in all four T20 World cup matches played so far.
