All-round Australia put on display a clinical performance to beat India by 85 runs and win their fifth T20 World Cup title in front of a packed home crowd in the final on Sunday.
After electing to bat first, Beth Mooney and Alyssa Healy slammed aggressive half centuries as the reigning champions posted 184/4 in 20 overs.
Chasing a stiff 185 for victory, India were never in the chase and were skittled out for just 99 in 19.1 overs.
Deepti Sharma (33) top-scored for the visitors who cut a sorry figure as the likes of skipper Harmanpreet Kaur (4), Smriti Mandhana (11), teenage sensation Shafali Verma (2) and Jemimah Rodrigues (0) failed miserably.
