What a start for Team India, beginning their World Cup campaign with a superb performance  against the hosts, defending champions and strong favourites Australia! Meg Lanning's side suddenly are under pressure with qualification for the semis looking a lot tougher after this defeat, and they will have to come out all guns blazing in their next outing, which will be against the Sri Lankans on Monday. India, meanwhile, have a couple of days to celebrate their victory before they get right back to training for their next Group A encounter against Bangladesh.

We hope you enjoyed our coverage of the opening game. It's a goodbye from us for now.

"They started well and put us under the pump, but our bowlers did a pretty good job to pull things back. There was lack of a partnership and that took the momentum away from us. It's not an ideal start but if we win the remaining games, we can still be through."  

- Meg Lanning, Australia captain

Harmanpreet Kaur: Definitely it's a great feeling, and I'm really happy for my girls, they did well. We knew this track is something where we can do well. We were looking to score 140 and for the bowlers to defend it. This track was not easy to bat on. Partnership between Deepti and Jemi was crucial. 130 was quite defendable in the end. Bowler like Poonam, she is someone who always leads from the front. She did great comeback for the team, and that's what we were expecting from her. Our team is looking very nice. Now we're playing as a unit. If we do well, we'll definitely win this World Cup.

Poonam Yadav: (On her fitness and recovery) My teammates have supported me a lot. I want to thank my teammates and the physio, and I have come this far with their help. This is the first time I've bowled against Australia in a T20 here. Hope to continue like this in the future as well. We needed it today, and that's what I done. This is the third time I didn't get a hat-trick, but hope I'll get it later. God is great! Hope to continue doing well in the future.

16:43 (IST)

Poonam Yadav is the Player of the Match for her stunning performance of 4/19!

16:41 (IST)

After 19.5 overs,Australia Women 115/10 ( Megan Schutt 1 , )

Shikha Pandey bowls out the final over, and we have an appeal for a caught-behind off the first delivery — which ultimately goes in favour of the hosts as the ball is shown to be landing on grass before settling in the keeper's gloves. Kaur then spreads the field out for Gardner, who then departs off the second ball — getting a thick leading edge that results in an easy catch for the bowler. It's just a formality for the Indians thereafter — a dot and a single off the next two balls, before Strano's run out at the non-striker's end completes a fine 17-run victory for Team India at the start of the seventh edition of the T20 World Cup!

Australia Women vs India Women  ICC Women's T20 World Cup match live updates: Shikha Pandey bowls out the final over, and we have an appeal for a caught-behind off the first delivery — which ultimately goes in favour of the hosts as the ball is shown to be landing on grass before settling in the keeper's gloves. Kaur then spreads the field out for Gardner, who then departs off the second ball — getting a thick leading edge that results in an easy catch for the bowler. It's just a formality for the Indians thereafter — a dot and a single off the next two balls, before Strano's run out at the non-striker's end completes a fine 17-run victory for Team India at the start of the seventh edition of the T20 World Cup!

Preview: The seventh edition of the ICC Women's T20 World Cup begins this Friday with hosts Australia facing powerhouses India in the opening game of the tournament in Sydney.

Despite stuttering on a couple of occasions in the recent triangular T20 series featuring India and England, Australia enter the tournament as strong favourites to lift the title yet again, having handed arch-rivals England an eight-wicket hammering in the final of the previous edition hosted in the Caribbean.

Australia are the most successful team in women's cricket of all time, having won six ODI World Cups and four T20 World Cups till date and are ahead in the Women's Ashes with six victories till date.

However, Harmanpreet Kaur's India represent a team that's vastly evolved over the previous decade into genuine world-beaters, with a string of successful results in recent times to boast of. The team came quite close to winning the tri-series earlier this month — suffering a collapse not very different from the one against England in the 2017 World Cup final.

Skipper Harmanpreet has already stated that the team will need all-round contributions, especially from youngsters such as Shafali Verma, and not just from one or two senior players if they are to end their T20 World Cup jinx — having reached the semis thrice, including in 2018, without progressing any further.

The match will kick off an event that will go on for more than two weeks, with the final slated to take place at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on 8 March (Women's Day). The organisers are hoping to break the world record for the biggest attendance in a women's sporting event by surpassing the 1999 FIFA Women's World Cup final between USA and China that was watched by 90,185 at the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena in the United States.

Tickets for the opening game are also being sold like hot cakes and the Australia-India contest at the Sydney Showground Stadium is expected to be every bit as noisy as a packed house would entail.

Squads:

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

Australia Women Squad: Alyssa Healy(w), Beth Mooney, Ashleigh Gardner, Meg Lanning(c), Ellyse Perry, Annabel Sutherland, Rachael Haynes, Nicola Carey, Jess Jonassen, Megan Schutt, Delissa Kimmince, Sophie Molineux, Georgia Wareham, Erin Burns, Molly Strano
