Harmanpreet Kaur-led side, who has won all their four group stage matches, top the Group A and will reach in the final if rain plays spoilsport as there is no reserve day for the semi-finals.

Similarly, South Africa, who top the Group B, will cruise into the final if their semi-final clash against Australia gets washed out on Thursday.

However, if it rains during the final of the tournament on Sunday, there is a reserve day for the decider and the teams will compete on Monday.
