This will be second time in the history of women’s World Cup when India will feature in final. Their last presence was back in 2005 under the captaincy of Mithali Raj when they lost to Australia by 98 runs. Mithali along with Jhulan Goswami are the only players from the 2005 final who are in the current squad.
