The Southern Stars are through to the final of the Women’s World Twenty20 after crushing India by seven wickets on Thursday.
Captain Alex Blackwell led the charge with a career-high 61 as Australia cruised to 3-123 in reply to India’s 5-119 with seven balls to spare.
The Stars will take on the winner of the clash between New Zealand and the West Indies in Sunday’s final.
Looking for redemption after bowing out at the semi-final stage to England in last year’s tournament, Australia has been in top form this edition having gone undefeated through the group stage.
Batting first, India struggled to post a competitive total with only opener Poonam Raut making any headway with 44 off 51 balls.
Harmanpreet Kaur hit 24 runs to also help boost the score before she was run out by Ellyse Perry and the Australians struck again in the same over to remove Jhulan Goswami and then Raut.
The Indian score was never going to be enough, however, as Blackwell and Shelley Nitschke, who put on 74 for the second wicket, hit the opposition bowlers to all parts of the ground.
Nitschke was eventually caught for 22 but Blackwell continued on her merry way, racking up eight boundaries in an impressive 49-ball knock.
Leah Poulton came in to smack 30 off 26 deliveries while Jess Cameron was unbeaten on six.
