India eves in Asia Cup T20 final

October 30, 2012 14:14 IST

Despite rain washing out the semi-final clash between India and Sri Lanka in Guangzhou, on Tuesday, Indian eves advanced to the ACC Women's Twenty20 Asia Cup final by the virtue of topping their pool.

Tuesday's match was abandoned without a ball being bowled at the Guanggong International Cricket Stadium.

The Indian women's team will now take on the winner of the other semi-final match between Pakistan and Bangladesh. However, captain Mithali Raj and veteran fast bowler

Jhulan Goswami will not be a part of the playing XI in the final as both of them have been ruled out of the tournament due to ankle injuries.

The Indian eves had earlier defeated Hong Kong, Thailand and Pakistan to finish on top of the standings with six points.
