(NewsRadio); Australia will take on hosts South Africa will in the final of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2023 at Newlands in Cape Town this evening.
The game is scheduled to get underway at 6.30pm Sri Lanka time.
The hosts South Africa will be playing their first-ever T20 World Cup final today.
On the other hand defending champions Australia will make their seventh successive appearance in a T20 World Cup final.
Historically, Australia have an overwhelming advantage over South Africa in the format, having beaten the Proteas in all of their previous six T20I engagements.
Their last encounter was a group stage match in this tournament, where Australia won the game by six wickets.
Sri Lanka also defeated the South Africans by three runs in the group stages.
However, South Africa have put two compelling performances since that loss.
They beat Bangladesh by a comprehensive margin of 10-wickets to make it to the semi-finals, and then went on to upend a strong England side in the semis by six runs.
Both sides have enough talent in their camps to make this evening’s final a riveting clash.
