"Hey @narendramodi -- Australia vs India in the final of the Women's @T20WorldCup in Melbourne tomorrow. Two great teams in front of a mega crowd at the MCG. It's going to be a big night and superb match! And Australia all the way (sic)," Morrison tweeted.

Modi retweeted him with the quote: "G'day @ScottMorrisonMP! It doesn't get bigger than the India vs Australia final in Women's @T20WorldCup tomorrow. Best wishes to both @BCCIWomen and @AusWomenCricket and greetings on Women's Day. May the best team win. Like the Blue Mountains, MCG will also be Blue tomorrow! (sic)"

The match will be preceded by a closing ceremony which will feature a performance by pop star Katy Perry.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) is expecting a full house at the MCG which would mean that it would break the record for the highest attendance for a women's sports event.
