The bowling attack of Australia Women has been their strength, as they kept the opponents in check most of the time in this tournament. India Women’s score of 177 which they posted in the successful run-chase in response to Australia Women’s 173 in match 5 is the maximum the hosts conceded in this series. It also signifies the brilliance of Indian top-order Shafali Verma and Smriti Mandhana, which led the visitors to the first success against the hosts in the series.
This win, and later Australia Women’s win over the English side ensured team India’s ticket to the finale, due to a slightly higher net-run-rate. India Women managed the net run rate of -0.071, while for England Women it was -0.169.

Australia Women did not shuffle their players much during the series and are unlikely to make any changes for the final match. Australia Women took the revenge of their super-over loss in the first game of the tournament, by defeating England Women by 16 runs in a low-scoring game at Melbourne. 7-wickets defeat from India in the fifth match had left Australia with no other option but to win the game, as both India and England already were ahead with 4 points. And then they delivered when it mattered the most.
While Mooney’s half-century helped the side to cross 130, despite lack of support from other batsmen. It just gave their bowlers enough scope to restrict England's Women, which is exactly what they did. Molineux’s 3 for 19, Vlaeminck’s 18 for 2, and Schutt’s 19-for-1 helped the side to thrash England Women and reach the final to meet India Women.
Considering matches since March 2019 till date, in 11 T20Is, Beth Mooney (393 runs) is the leading run-scorer, followed by Alyssa Healy (383 runs), and Megan Schutt leads the bowling department with her 18 wickets, followed by Jess Jonassen with 16 wickets.
Key Players: Ellyse Perry, Alyssa Healy, Beth Mooney

After winning opening India against England Women, the visitors collapsed to 103 against Australia Women, which cost them the match. Later, they lost to England in the fourth match. In their last group-stage match, they gave their best shot to defeat the hosts. Except for Deepti Sharma (2 for 27), the bowlers went for plenty of runs which gave their batsmen an uphill task of chasing 174 runs. However, 16-year-old Shafali Verma played a remarkable knock of 29-balls 49 at the top, and along with Mandhana (55 off 48) played the crucial role in team India’s victory over might side and T20 World Cup favourites Australia. They are one match away from creating history, but they need to be more disciplined in the bowling department this time.
Considering matches since March 2019 till date, Smriti Mandhana is the leading run-scorer with 461 runs followed by Shafali Verma (314 runs), and Deepti Sharma, leads the bowling department with her 23 wickets followed by Radha Yadav (22 wickets).
Key Player: Harmanpreet Kaur, Smriti Mandhana, Shafali Verma

The venue for the match is Junction Oval, Melbourne, having the capacity of approximately 8000 people. It also hosts Australian football matches. Junction Oval generally produce low scoring matches.
This is the kind of ground best suited for chasing. In the last 11 Women’s BBL matches happened at this venue, the teams batting second have won 7 of them. In this tournament, out of 3 matches, 2 are won by the team batting second. The team winning the toss should opt to Bowl first on this surface.
Surely, India Women have offered a tremendous challenge to Australia Women in the fifth match of the tournament, where the hosts conceded defeat by 7 wickets and 2 balls remaining. It is expected a similar fight from the visitors in the final too.
However, it’s the big final match, being played in Australia. The hosts would look to come heavily against India. They have already shown how well they can perform under pressure as they defeated England Women in the last round-robin game. In the final game, it is going to be very difficult for India Women to face Australian bowlers, who are looking daunting at the moment.
