It has never been easier to watch cricket online, so no matter where you are in the world, you can get a great quality ICC Women's T20 World Cup live stream in 2020. The top 10 teams in the world have now been whittled down to just two finalists - India and Australia.

Hosts Australia entered the tournament as slight favourites and beat a talented South African side in the semi-final to make it through to Sunday's decider. In the other Women's T20 World Cup semi-final, an undefeated India advanced past England without a ball being bowled, due to washout weather - an ironic result to say the least, given the UK's reputation for rain.

ICC Women's T20 World Cup 2020 cheat sheet

The 2020 ICC Women's T20 World Cup is the seventh edition of the biennial tournament and started on Friday, February 21. The India vs Australia final takes place in Melbourne on Sunday, March 8 at 6pm local time (AET), which is 1.30pm IST in New Dehli and 7am GMT in the UK.

However, few would would argue India aren't deserving of a place in the final. Their impressive T20 World Cup started on Friday, February 21 with a huge victory over none other than Australia - just 17 runs separated the two sides on the day. India then underlined just what an impressive squad (and nerves) they have, going on to beat New Zealand by an even more razor-thin margin of 3 runs.

Led by captain Harmanpreet Kaur - who famously knocked a 171 against Australia back in 2017 during a ODI - they also boast two of the most promising youngsters in the world: 16-year olds Richa Ghosh and Shafali Verma.

Hopes are especially high for Shafali, who etched her way into Indian cricket history when she broke the legendary Sachin Tendulkar's 30 year record and became the youngest ever play in the country to score a half century, racking up 73 runs against the West Indies at just 15 years and 285 days old.

Now we're at the business end of the tournament, we're sure you'll watch to watch the big final. Our guide explains how to get a reliable ICC Women's T20 World Cup 2020 live stream from anywhere in the world.
