By virtue of their unbeaten run in the group stage, Team India reached their maiden World T20 final on Thursday after rain refused to relent at the Sydney Cricket Ground, hence denying the first semifinal clash of the Women's T20 event. India emerged as an eventual finalist as per ICC's rule leaving England gutted. The Women in Blue now have the defending champions Australia standing as the only obstacle between them and the elusive trophy.

And Indian skipper Harmanpreet Kaur will look to make it doubly special for her. While her parents will be present at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) to watch their daughter captain India in the team's maiden World T20 final appearance, Harmanpreent will also be celebrating her 31st birthday on Sunday. Harmanpreet will, in fact, become the first captain ever, male or female, to lead his/her team in an ICC World event final (ODI/T20I/U19 CWCs, Champions Trophy). The Indian skipper will turn 31 on International Women's Day.
