India will take on the hosts Australia in the big final of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup on Sunday.
Ahead of the final, Global music superstar Katy Perry visited the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), where she will be performing live before and after the summit clash between the two sides.
During her interaction with Harmanpreet Kaur & Co., Katy was curious to know about the composition of the Indian team for the finals. While experienced Veda Krishnamurthy said that the rules don’t allow them to reveal the playing XI before the toss, it was young Jemimah Rodrigues who left everyone in splits with her reply.
Responding to Katy’s query, Rodrigues asked the American singer to call her and she will reveal the XI.
“You can call me tomorrow, I can tell you,” Jemimah said.
The T20 World Cup’s official Twitter handle posted the video of Katty interacting with the Women in Blue on Saturday.
“Not even @katyperry is allowed to know the India team for tomorrow,” the video was captioned.

India entered their maiden Women’s T20 World Cup final after their semi-final clash against England was washed out in Sydney on Thursday, March 5.
Australia, on the other hand, defeated South Africa in the second semi-final at SCG. The defending champions entered their sixth consecutive final in the tournament’s history; they have been a part of every Women’s T20 World Cup final since 2010.
