A record crowd for a women's cricket match turned out at the MCG. Hosts and defending champions Australia turned up and bossed the final against India, clinching their fifth T20 World Cup trophy.

India's unbeaten run in the tournament came to an end in the final.

Alyssa Healy set the tone in the final with a 30-ball fifty - a record in a World Cup final - en route to a 39-ball 75. In the stands at the MCG was her husband Mitchell Starc, who had played in the 2015 World Cup final at the MCG .
