TOSS : South Africa Women have won the toss and have elected to bat first.

Australian women have lost their last two Twenty20 International (T20I) series, which were against New Zealand and India. Alex Blackwell is the vice-captain of the current Australian Women’s squad which includes the likes of Ellyse Perry, Grace Harris, Alyssa Healy and Sarah Coyte. Lanning stands fifth on the table of most runs scored in Twenty20 Internationals (T20I) with 1,655 runs from 61 matches at an excellent strike rate of 117.87. Vice-captain Alex with most T20I runs, 1195 runs off 85 matches. Ellyse is easily the important player in the current squad of Australia women. After India won the historic T20I series Down Under, it was the 25-year-old’s sheer dominance with both bat and ball that outclassed India outright in the ODIs.

Lanning’s team will walk into the World T20 with aim of becoming the most successful women’s team in the shortest format.
