Australia's 72-51 defeat of Jamaica last night saw the Diamonds finish top of their pool while England handed the Silver Ferns their second defeat which saw them finish second. 

The Diamonds have been undefeated throughout their pool matches and have been on a winning streak since August 2017.

While New Zealand hasn't had the easiest last few months including losing the 2017 Constellation Cup to Australia and a shock loss to Malawi in the pool matches at the Games.

Diamonds captain Caitlin Bassett said it is pride on the line for the Silver Ferns.

"It's pride on the line for them," she said

"Sometimes it's the game after a loss that you've got to be wary of teams."

The Diamonds will be trying to defend their gold medal from Glasgow, which was their first in two Commonwealth Games.

For experienced team member, Susan Pettitt winning a gold medal is the ultimate goal.

"For me personally, I've won two silvers at Commonwealth Games so there's definitely the hunger to win gold," she said.

"We're out there for each other trying to win that gold medal." 

It is the first time Australia and New Zealand will meet in the semifinal as both countries have always met in the gold medal match. 

The Diamonds will meet New Zealand on Saturday 14 April.
