Healy's injury capped a tough day in the field for Australia, as the India opener Smriti Mandhana smashed 83 from 55 balls and Harmanpreet Kaur hit 43 off 27 with dominant stroke play along the ground.
The match though was all about Mandhana who was in sparkling form, hitting nine fours and three sixes in a knock that was a delight to watch. Anuja Patil and Arundhati Reddy are in. The 35-year old has so far played 80 T20 global matches.More news: DeVos proposes overhaul to campus sexual misconduct rules
With a semi-final awaiting on Friday against the victor of England and West Indies, Healy is Australia's leading run-scorer with 157 at an average of 78.5 and strike rate of 160.2.
With that, the Women in Blue reached the semifinal of the multi-nation tournament. Lion's share of India's success goes to Mithali Raj who scored her 17 half-century and broke records.More news: Upon Further Review: Packers at Seahawks
PREVIEW: Having already qualified for the semi-finals of the ICC World T20, India will be up for some real test when they take on mighty Australia in an inconsequential tie at the Providence Stadium here on Saturday.
This was an extremely clinical performance by India! "And playing slower bowlers was hard, but the partnership with Smriti was crucial". "But hopefully she's all right for us come semi-finals time", captain Meg Lanning said. They easily saw off Pakistan in their first pool match by 52 runs, comprehensively defeated Ireland in their second by 9 wickets and then beat New Zealand by 33 runs.More news: Britain to push UN Security Council to back humanitarian truce in Yemen
