Semi Final.2 Aus bs Nz
Edgbaston, 6pm local (3am AEST, 2.30am ACST, 1am AWST)
Probably Playing XI of Both Teams.
Australia have gone unchanged throughout the tournament and that seems set to remain the case for the semi-final, unless there is a last-minute injury, or if the change from a hybrid pitch to a traditional turf pitch prompts a change in tactics.
New Zealand have stuck to a similar line-up through the group change, bringing in Rosemary Mair for their second game and rotating left-arm orthodox bowler Fran Jonas with off-spinner Eden Carson, so it is unlikely much will change against Australia.
