Medium-pacer Renuka Singh ran through Barbados’ top-order with a four-wicket haul as India beat their lowly opponents by 100 runs to qualify for the semifinals of the women’s T20 cricket at the Commonwealth Games on Wednesday.

Invited to bat, India posted a competitive 162/4 on the back of a fine unbeaten half-century from Jemimah Rodrigues (56 not out off 46 balls) and a 26-ball 43 from opener Shafali Verma.

The Indians then restricted Barbados to 62/8 in 20 overs, with Singh bamboozling the batters with an impressive spell. Captain Harmanpreet Kaur, Sneh Rana, Meghna Singh and Radha Yadav chipped in with a wicket apiece. Kyshona Knight was the top-scorer for Barbados with 16, while Shakera Selman made 12. Seven of their batters failed to reach double figures. Barbados were dismissed for 64 in their nine-wicket defeat to Australia in their last match. India have four points from two wins and finished second behind Australia (6 points from 3 matches) in Group A. They had beaten Pakistan and lost to Australia in their earlier matches.

The semifinals will be played on Saturday.

Brief Scores: India: 162/4 in 20 overs (Rodrigues 56*, Verma 43; Bruce 1/17); Barbados: 62/8 in 20 overs (Knight 16; Singh 4/10).
