Australia completed the highest chase in Women’s World Cup history to beat India and reach the semi-finals.

On a superb pitch, India reached 277-7 after half-centuries by Yastika Bhatia, Harmanpreet Kaur and Mithali Raj.

Australia looked to be cantering before captain Meg Lanning was out for 97 in the penultimate over.

Amid rising tension in Auckland, Australia needed eight from the final over, only for Beth Mooney to seal the six-wicket win with three balls left.
