The official Twitter handles of the International Cricket Council (ICC) and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) shared post with captions, which read "A social media sensation... and Katy Perry" and "Cause there's a spark in you" respectively. BCCI's message is a line from Perry's hit 2010 song Firework.

Australia: Beth Mooney, Alyssa Healy (wk), Meg Lanning (c), Ashleigh Gardner, Rachael Haynes, Jess Jonassen, Nicola Carey, Delissa Kimmince, Georgia Wareham, Sophie Molineux, Megan Schutt.

The final coincides with the 2020 International Women's Day.

In the light of the current coronavirus scare, the mother-to-be singer has postponed her marriage with fiance Orlando Bloom which was scheduled to take place in Japan.

India progressed as the top-ranked team in their group after their match against England was washed out. Host and defending champions Australia defeated South Africa by five runs in the other semi-final.
