Baroda beat Mumbai by seven wickets to enter the Women’s Senior T20 Trophy semifinal on Friday.

Baroda, which topped Elite Group D, was set a daunting 172-run target by Mumbai to earn its second successive semifinal berth in the tournament.

Riding on the fifty of opener Tarannum Pathan (55) and India batter Yastika Bhatia’s 22-ball 33, Baroda got its chase off to a strong start before handy cameos from skipper Radha Yadav (31 n.o.) and Hrutu Patel (42 n.o.) sealed the chase with eight balls to spare.
