Derby, July 21 (IANS) All-rounder Harmanpreet Kaur’s belligerent 115-ball unbeaten 171 helped India beat world champions Australia by 36 runs in the second semi-final here and set their date with hosts England in Sunday’s Women’s World Cup final at The Lord’s.

Electing to bat after winning the toss in a rain-shortened 42-overs-a-side semi-final, Kaur hammered her third One-day International ton, laced with 20 fours and seven massive sixes, to set a daunting 282-run target.

In reply, the Southern Stars could only muster 245 against some disciplined bowling effort from the Indians.
