The Meg Lanning led side had edged the West Indies in a close semi-final by eight runs whereas in contrast England breezed past South Africa by nine wickets thus capping a dominating performance before the all-important clash.
The key players for Australia would definitely be Lanning and Elyse Villani who has struck form at the opportune moment whereas for England the performance of Anya Shrubsole will hold the key to their success especially after her stand-out performance against South Africa.
Though there is nothing much to separate the two sides still the match may well be a battle between Australia’s sturdy batting and England’s prolific bowling attack and may well keep viewers on the edge of their seats.
