12:02 hrs IST: Australia have won the toss, and opted to bat first.

11:26 hrs IST: Ahead of the final, India captain Kaur revealed that a forced eight-day break has affected India's preparations going into the Women's T20 World Cup final on Sunday but the team is ready to rise to occasion in front a record crowd at the MCG.

"We haven't been outdoors much and we didn't manage to play the important game against England," said Kaur on the eve of the final against record four-time champions Australia.

"We were all in touch and doing indoor training, but it doesn't give you full confidence because the surface is totally different. Everyone was in good touch and thinking what they can do for the team.

"We did get rest also because when you're playing for a long time, you need a break. No-one wanted to take rest, everyone was so keen, everyone was on the ground and ready to deal with the situation."

11:00 hrs IST: Good morning everyone and welcome to Outlook's live coverage of the Women's World T20 final between India Vs Australia. Can Harmanpreet Kaur lead her side to the elusive ICC title? Or will Australia do the usual again?

India are currently unbeaten in this tournament, having already edged past Australia in the opener. Kaur and her team sealed a berth in the final, after having been unbeaten in Group A and experiencing their semifinal clash against England get washed out.

Shafali Verma will be the visiting side's main weapon. The 16-year-old's swashbuckling batting displays has been key to India's victory, along with the bowling department. Sadly, other key batsmen like Kaur and Smriti Mandhana have failed to click yet. Today is their day of reckoning.

Also, the middle order needs to be more consistent, considering the shaky confidence of top order members other than Verma. India need to manage the pressure, unlike in the 2017 ODI World Cup final, when they lost to England and also in the 2018 World T20 semis.

India also hasn't yet crossed the 150-run mark in any of the matches in the tournament.

Leg spinner Poonam Yadav will be hoping to continue with her brilliant form, and is currently the tournament's highest wicket-taker with Aussie Megan Schutt (nine wickets). Pace bowler Shikha Pandey will also need to continue with her consistency, having been crucial to India's strategy.

Ahead of the match, captain Harmanpreet said, "One thing, we have to keep in mind Sunday is a fresh day, a fresh start. We have to start from ball one. We've done quite well in the league games. Both teams are under pressure and both are capable of winning."

Led by Meg Lanning, Australia are the heavyweights in this match and also have the home crowd.

The Aussies have faced injury issues in the competition, having lost Elysse Perry and Tayla Vaeminck. Perry was crucial to the team's plans. They edged past South Africa in the semifinals to book a final berth.

"We're not coming just to put on a good show. We're coming here to win and that's the attitude we're going in with. It's been a long time coming and the build-up to the game is something I've not experienced before. It will be the biggest moment of my career," said Meg Lanning.

More than 75,000 tickets have already been sold for the final and the figure could go as high as 90,000, unprecedented in women's cricket.

Squads:

India Women (from): Harmanpreet Kaur (c), Smriti Mandhana, Shikha Pandey, Poonam Yadav, Rajeshwari Gayakwad, Veda Krishnamurthy, Deepti Sharma, Jemimah Rodrigues, Pooja Vastrakar, Taniya Bhatia, Radha Yadav, Harleen Deol, Arundhati Reddy, Shafali Verma, Richa Ghosh.
