Australia will play the West Indies in Sunday's women's cricket World Cup final after suffering a shock eight-run loss to them in the final round of Super Sixes matches in Mumbai, India on Wednesday.

Protecting a unbeaten record of five games, Australia dismissed the West Indies for 164, but were shot out for 156 with ten balls to go.

It was the West Indies' first win in four women's one-day internationals against Australia and the first time they have advanced to the World Cup final.

The victory also lifted West Indies to first in the Super Six standings above Australia on run rate and ended England and New Zealand's hopes of making the final.

Rachael Haynes (21 off 33) and Jess Cameron (39 off 60) added 47 for the second wicket, but Australia slumped to 4-89 after 26 overs.

Alex Blackwell (45 off 83) and captain Jodie Fields (18 off 46) put on 41 to steer Australia to 5-130 in the 39th over.

However, the Southern Stars lost 5-26, with only Erin Osborne (19 off 31) wagging the tail.

Three run outs didn't help Australia's cause.

Earlier, young quicks Megan Schutt (3-50 off 10) and Holly Ferling (3-27 off 7) reduced the West Indies to 5-59 inside 19 overs.

Renowned big-hitter Deandra Dottin (60 off 67) smashed ten fours and a six to boost her team's chances.

She was bowled by spinner Osborne (2-16 off 9), who delivered another tidy spell following her remarkable figures of 3-9 off 10 in Australia's last match against Sri Lanka.
