India Women are going to be led by experienced Harmanpreet Kaur in their first-ever final of the World T20. She led her side to the semifinal in the last tournament and would be incredibly proud to lead them in front of a full house at MCG.
India’s team have outdone themselves in this tournament. Their bowlers have been extremely good, whereas their batting has largely relied on Shafali Verma. Poonam Yadav was the chief tormentor of the Australians during the previous encounter between the two sides and she will once again be in the spotlight.
Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played the last cricket game.
Here is our prediction of India Women’s playing XI:
- Shafali Verma
- Smriti Mandhana
- T Bhatia
- JI Rodrigues
- Harmanpreet Kaur
- DB Sharma
- Veda Krishanmurthy
- Shikha Pandey
- Poonam Yadav
- RS Gayakwad
- RP Yadav
Australia Women are going to be led by Meg Lanning in yet another final of the world tournament. It is going to be the fifth straight world T20 final for the hosts and they have won four of out those five consecutive finals.
Australia have not been their usual self in this tournament. There have been some injury concerns as well as form issues. Elyssa Perry, their premier allrounder, has been ruled out of the tournament already and they are going to miss her dearly.
Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that won them their semifinal against South Africa.
Here is our prediction of Australia Women’s playing XI:
- Alyssa Healy
- BL Mooney
- A Gardner
- MM Laning
- S Molineux

Expert Prediction: INDW vs AUSW
75,000 people. That is the least number of people expected to attend the final of this edition of ICC World T20. On one hand, we have the mighty Australians, who have become the synonyms of winners in women’s cricket, while we also have India, who are slowly but surely emerging as a powerhouse in women’s cricket as well.
Harmanpreet Kaur and Meg Lanning would be the leaders of their respective sides in this landmark moment of women’s cricket. While Australia have always been good across all formats, India’s growth has been the main factor for them to take this tournament to another level. Their presence in the final is the main reason why we are going to see so many people in the stadium.
Both sides took a different route to reach here. While India’s sailing has been very smooth, Australia have had to really struggle their way to this point. India won each of their group games while Australia had to scrap around up until the semifinal. By the virtue of winning all of their group matches, India got through to the final after their semifinal against England was abandoned due to rain.
Australia had a tough outing against South Africa Women in their semifinal. In a rain-hit game, they got home by five runs as South Africa fell short of their revised target of 97 runs in 13 overs. Now they are back in their familiar territory in yet another final of the world tournament. They know that no team comes close to them in terms of handling the pressure of the big final.
As a result, keeping in mind Australia’s unbelievable record in these finals and India’s inexperience in playing in front of such a large crowd, our prediction is of Australia’s win in yet another final.
