NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Australian counterpart Scott Morrison engaged in an exchange on Twitter ahead of the women's T20 World Cup final on Sunday.

India and Australia will meet in the title clash at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, their second face-off in this tournament.

"Hey @narendramodi -- Australia vs India in the final of the Women's @T20WorldCup in Melbourne tomorrow. Two great teams in front of a mega crowd at the MCG. It's going to be a big night and superb match! And Australia all the way (sic)," Morrison tweeted.

Modi retweeted him with the quote: "G'day @ScottMorrisonMP! It doesn't get bigger than the India vs Australia final in Women's @T20WorldCup tomorrow. Best wishes to both @BCCIWomen and @AusWomenCricket and greetings on Women's Day. May the best team win. Like the Blue Mountains, MCG will also be Blue tomorrow! (sic)"

The match will be preceded by a closing ceremony which will feature a performance by pop star Katy Perry.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) is expecting a full house at the MCG which would mean that it would break the record for highest attendance for a women's sports event.
