The T20 Women’s World Cup is getting underway and opening matches don’t get much bigger than this, so follow our guide to live stream Australia vs India today and watch all the cricket action as it happens.
Australian fast bowler Tayla Vlaeminck could be the difference between the two teams, with many pundits tipping her to become the first woman to break the 130km/h barrier.

Australia vs India Women’s T20 – when and where?
Australia are hosting the entire Women’s T20 World Cup and will start their campaign against India at the Sydney Showground on Friday, February 21.
The first ball is expected to be bowled at 7pm local time in Sydney (AEDT) and so that means 1.30pm IST in India.
Not only that, Australia are the number one side in the world in the limited over T20 format – and with the Women’s T20 World Cup taking place Down Under, they’ll no doubt enjoy some raucous home support.
India, for their part, will rely heavily on the swashbuckling bat of captain Harmanpreet Kaur. Keen cricket fans will no doubt remember she knocked a huge 171 against the Aussies back in 2017 during a ODI, so there’s little doubt of her ability to hit boundaries when it matters.
As you can probably tell my now, this is a huge fixture to kick-off what promises to be a compelling tournament – don’t miss a second by swotting up on our India vs Australia live stream guide.
