11:56 AM: Harmanpreet Kaur: We also wanted to bat first but we are quite confident chasing so if our bowlers do a job it will be good for us.
11:53 AM: Australia captain Meg Lanning wins the toss and opts to bat first. Same team as in the semi-final against South Africa.
This is the clash which deserves the final – the world’s number 1 side takes on the side which is at home across all conditions. India has been the team in form and will look to script history in their first-ever appearance in the T20 world cup. India has a settled side and barring any last-minute injury, they should stick to their winning formula.
Australia, which went down to India in the group stage, have been solid after the initial jolt and have the experience to prosper at this stage. They are the hosts and they will be familiar with the conditions on offer. However, it will be a matter of tackling the nerves after the first ball is bowled.
