One of the most experienced players in the Indian team, Smriti Mandhana, is having a quiet ICC Women's T20 World Cup 2020. But the 23-year-old is expected to produce the goods when it really matters, in the final against the hosts and four-time champions Australia on Sunday at Melbourne.

On the eve of the big finale, which coincides with International Women's Day, the opener was seen hitting the balls in the nets. The official Twitter handle of the T20 World Cup shared footage of the elegant left-handed batter in action.

Watch it here:

On Thursday, Virat Kohli's childhood coach Rajkumar Sharma said that captain Harmanpreet Kaur and Mandhana's best is yet to come and they will deliver it in the final.

"India are playing as a team. Shefali Verma is scoring runs, Poonam Yadav is scalping wickets, and Shikha Pandey's lethal fast-bowling is proof that they all are contributing. Harmanpreet Kaur's and Smriti Mandhana's best is yet to come and I hope that it will come in the final," Rajkumar Sharma said.

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