So proud of how Melbourne showcases sporting events. @mcg looked a picture. Katy Perry was awesome. And both Teams will never forget such a big day for International Women's cricket!— Dean Jones AM (@ProfDeano) March 8, 2020
Congrats to all involved. Women's cricket has arrived now. https://t.co/YTDUoj5a4m
An amazing night at the G. A record 86,174 there to watch Meg Lanning and the Aussies bringing home a fifth women's title on Int'l womens day. Congrats to Alyssa Healy and Beth Mooney on stunning performances. Commiserations to India, have no doubt that @narendramodi is proud.— Scott Morrison (@ScottMorrisonMP) March 8, 2020
Till a few years ago, nobody could have imagined that a billion eyes would be glued to Women's Cricket World Cup— Gautam Gambhir (@GautamGambhir) March 8, 2020
Cups will come & go, but today is a victory for each & every INDIAN GIRL who dared to defy odds & societal barriers! #SheInspiresUs
Congrats to Australia!
I know how tough it is to be so close to that World Cup & not win it. But chin up, girls! It's not about the result, but about the generation you've inspired. You had a campaign you can be very proud of!— Mohammad Kaif (@MohammadKaif) March 8, 2020
Also congratulations Australia, a much deserved win.#INDvsAUS #T20WorldCup pic.twitter.com/5ekr5Y9yvS
Instead of being overawed by the expectation of a home World Cup final at a packed MCG, Australia have thrived on it. Healy calmed the nerves early. India looked intimidated unfortunately. They will learn from it one hopes.— Ian bishop (@irbishi) March 8, 2020

"Oh hey, remember when you dominated a World Cup Final at the MCG, winning it for Australia before the opposition caught breath?"
"Yeah. Remember when you did too?"
"Yeah. More toast?"#T20WorldCup
