13:23 hrs IST: Meanwhile, Harmanpreet Kaur said, "I definitely wanted to bowl but the toss is not in your hands so we just want to play good cricket. We are playing three spinners. We are getting a lot of support from all India supporters."

13:18 hrs IST: After the toss, Aussie captain Meg Lanning said, "We're not sure about the conditions so we want bowl first. Potentially some weather around but nothing too major. Molly Strano comes straight into the team so hopefully she can do well."

13:04 hrs IST: Australia win the toss and captain Meg Lanning opts to field first. Can India post a big total for the Aussies?

12:56 hrs IST: Ahead of the match, India captain Harmanpreet Kaur stated that all her players need to step up the mark against the defending champions. "If you want to do well as a team, you need to come up together and do well for the side,” she said.

“Through past tournaments, we have learnt that you cannot depend on just one or two players to win the game for you.

"If you want to win a big tournament like the World Cup, you have to come up as a team and that's what we're looking to do.

"Young players are mentally very fresh, they don't know what type of pressure they have to face.

12:25 hrs IST: Good afternoon everyone and welcome to Outlook's live coverage of the ICC Women's T20 World Cup opener between Australia vs India. Both sides will be aiming for a win. 

The Harmanpreet Kaur-led side have been pretty inconsistent lately, like in the recently held tri-series in Australia, where they reached the final. India won and lost a game against England and Australia, before losing to the Aussies in the final. Australia have won the T20 World Cup a record four times, out of its six editions.

Star batsman Smriti Mandhana has already revealed that India will need to work on its middle and lower-order, in order to put better displays and also to edge past Australia, England. Unlike the past, they can't repeat a middle order collapse in the tournament.

Also, all eyes will be on 16-year-old Shafali Verma, who will be hoping to give India a good start in the World Cup matches. A lot is also expected from captain Kaur, who also needs to become more consistent with her performances.

In the bowling department, India doesn't have much to worry about. The team consists of quality bowlers, especially spinners. Pace bowler Shikha Pandey will need to lead her team's attack.

"As an opening bowler, I’m obviously thinking about the early breakthroughs and that doesn’t change. In the first six, we are trying to take wickets and then it’s about containing the batters before coming back and bowling the best you can in the death overs," said Pandey, India's fifth-highest wicket-taker in T20s.

"I would say 150 is now a par score in a T20 game, so the first six overs batters actually get a lot of freedom and try to hit as many runs as possible," she added.

India head coach WV Raman said, "Since (2018 World T20) then there has been a lot of improvement, in terms of fitness, agility on the field and their approach to batting."

Australia will be favourties in the tournament opener, having players like Ellyse Perry and Meg Lanning.

Their batting order is the best in the tournament, but their inexperience in a young bowling attack could pose problems for the team.

Squads:

Australia: Erin Burns, Nicola Carey, Ashleigh Gardner, Rachael Haynes (vice-capt), Alyssa Healy (wk), Jess Jonassen, Delissa Kimmince, Meg Lanning (capt), Sophie Molineux, Beth Mooney, Ellyse Perry, Megan Schutt, Annabel Sutherland, Tayla Vlaeminck, Georgia Wareham.

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