The 2nd Semi-final of the ICC U19 T20 World Cup 2023 will take place at Senwes Park in Potchefstroom on January 27 between Australia and England. Though Bangladesh defeated Australia in the opening match of the inaugural Under-19 Women’s T20 World Cup, they played with enough precision to guarantee that no more mishaps were going into the semifinal.
They excelled, particularly in the match against India, although they came in second place in Super Six Group 1 due to India’s more substantial net run rate. Amy Smith and Maggie Clark are the players to watch out for. By effectively using her height, Clark has taken nine wickets, the second-most in the tournament so far. She made ideal contact with the ground and could generate enough movement to keep the batters off balance. On the other hand, Amy Smith led the run chase against India and remained unbeaten. She established a 51-run partnership with Claire Moore, scoring 26 of 25 deliveries.
England performed brilliantly in this competition. They began their campaign by dismissing Zimbabwe for 25. They then dismissed Rwanda for 45. They then defeated Pakistan. They dominated their two Super Six matches by thrashing West Indies and Ireland. As a result, they go to the semi-final with the best net run rate of any team, 5.088.
With 269 runs at a strike rate of 137.94, including three half-centuries, Grace Scrivens, the skipper, has dominated the tournament. In the match against Rwanda, Liberty Heap slugged a 35-ball 64 to carry a powerful punch. In her blitzkrieg, she destroyed a dozen boundaries and won the player of the match. Together with her opening partner and captain, Grace Scrivens, they combined for a 124-run partnership.
