Australia had won the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup last time too.

Also, while Australia has won the Women’s T20 World Cup four times, it remained the runner-up once. 

Both teams have put up a superb show in this World Cup so far. While India has not lost a single match in this World Cup, Australia has lost just one match.

The Indian women’s team had previously reached the semi-final in 2009, 2010 and 2018. India has not won the Women’s T20 World Cup even once till now and if it wins the final this time, it will create history.

What works in India’s favour is the fact that in the very first match of this World Cup, it had defeated Australia by 17 runs. Also, India won the sole match played between the two teams at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

A look at statistics shows that the two teams have played a total of 19 T20 matches so far, out of which Australia won 13 matches and India won six matches.

The two teams have played four Women’s T20 World Cup matches, out of which both teams have won two matches each. Meanwhile, the two teams have played four T20 matches in the year 2020 so far and both have won two matches each.

Playing for India, Shafali Verma (batting) and Poonam Yadav (bowling) are in great form in this World Cup. While Yadav has taken nine wickets in this World Cup so far, Verma has made 161 runs with a strike rate of 161.

Given the way the Indian women’s team is playing in this World Cup, it can be safely said that Team Australia will not have it easy this time.
