    This victory means that India are through to the semifinal of the ICC Women's T20 World Cup 2023. They are the second team from Group B to make it to the top four after England.

    This also means that West Indies and Pakistan - who had their fate dependent on India's loss today, are knocked out of the World Cup. Pakistan go out despite having a match in hand.

    Ireland end their World Cup campaign with four losses in as many games.

    This is excellent batting from Ireland. They have not been bogged down by the twin wickets in the first over. They are going for their shots and pocket 11 runs off the final over of the powerplay bowled by Deepti Sharma. Gaby Lewis has raced to 27* off 18 and has captain Delany for company at 13* off 13.

    Pooja Vastrakar leaks 9

    The most expensive over of the chase so far as Pooja Vastrakar leaks two boundaries.

    Players struggling with the breeze now

    The breeze is getting heavier by the minute. Bowlers struggling to control the ball whereas Jemimah Rodrigues has to do the groundsmen's work as the boundary hoarding flies into the ground. Funny scenes overall.
