Australia Women captain Jodie Fields won the toss and elected to bat against the West Indies Women in the final of the ICC Women’s World Cup 2013 on Sunday.

West Indies Women captain Merissa Aguilleira won the toss and elected to bat against Australia Women in the final of the ICC Women’s World Cup 2013 on Sunday.

Five-time champions Australia will face the West Indies in the final of the Women’s World Cup at the Cricket Club of India’s Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai Sunday.

It will be the tenth final of the women’s showcase event, which began in 1973, and the third final in India. 

Both teams have had contrasting paths to the final. Australia, the most successful team to date in tournament history, won all but one of its matches on way to the final with the side losing just to its fellow finalist, the West Indies, in its last Super Six game.

Teams:

Australia Women: Rachel Haynes, Meg Lanning, Jess Cameron, Blackwell, Lisa Sthalekar, Jodie Feilds (c&wk), Sarah Coyte, Erin Osborne, Ellyse Perry, Julie Hunter, Megan Schutt.
