Tenacious Jamaica cruised to a stunning 57-55 win over netball seed Australia to finish top of Group A at the Commonwealth Games.
The Sunshine Girls overturned a five-goal deficit in the final period to earn the win in Birmingham.
The win is, on paper, a shock, but based on Jamaica’s performances so far it is no less than they deserve.
If England beat New Zealand later on Thursday (9pm BST), they will face Australia in Saturday’s semi-final.
This would be a repeat of the thrilling final in 2018, which England won 52-51.
Jhaniele Fowler scored 47 of her 50 tries under the post and a stout Jamaican defence, roared on by the crowd at the NEC, put pressure on Australia’s shooters to take the final quarter 17-9.
Jamaica, ranked fourth in the world, has stepped onto the podium at the last two Commonwealth Games, both times in the bronze medal position.
