Mithali cautions India despite 'home' advantage in WWC semis

Having been beaten comprehensively by Australia (by 8 wickets) only a week ago, Raj knows the herculean task that she and her side faces and what a victory will mean. Australia have been clinical all through the tournament, losing just one of their group-stage games.

The Women in Blue have won all four of the games it has played at the County Ground, including against host England in the opening match of the tournament. The Mithali Raj-led side will be challenged by Australia but may still be able to create and upset. The match was the closest in the tournament so far and Knight believes that the final - against either Australia or India, who play tomorrow - could be a similar spectacle.

"It's all about how the teams respond to the situation and the conditions on the day", Raj said.

"But for this Indian team, it is going to be a big game and if we can pull out one win, it will be exceptional by the team", she said. "On any given day, it's irrelevant where we play, if we play our best cricket hopefully we'll win the match", she said.

"We'll have to do a bit of homework, look at the conditions and see what Derby has to offer because I think India will come out and really take it to us", she added.

Raj recently broke the record of highest runs in ODIs and also became the first women batter to score 6,000 ODI runs surpassing former England player Charlotte Edwards.
