More than 75,000 tickets have been sold for the final of the International Cricket Council (ICC) Women's T20 World Cup between India and hosts Australia tomorrow.

Organisers hope that the record attendance for a women's sporting event - 90,185, set in 1999 at the FIFA Women’s World Cup in the United States as the hosts beat China in the final - will be broken.

The match is being played at the the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), which can hold in excess of 100,000 spectators.

Demand is so high that standing-room tickets are now on sale, which excites Australia captain Meg Lanning.

"We haven't played in front of a crowd this big before so that's fine, we just need to make sure that we deal with that as best we can and actually just enjoy it," Lanning said.

Hosts Australia have won the tournament four times before and are the defending champions, while India are the only team yet to lose a game at the tournament.

They defeated the Aussies by 17 runs in the opening game of the tournament and reached the final after their semi-final was washed out.

Australia, who finished second behind India in the group stage, beat South Africa in the semi-finals despite star all-rounder Ellyse Perry being ruled out for the remainder of the tournament.

"Both the teams are capable of winning and we are expecting good cricket tomorrow," said India captain Harmanpreet Kaur, whose parents have flown to Australia and hope to watch her play for the first time since her school career after a ball wasn't bowled in the semi-final.

Tomorrow will also be her 31st birthday.

India have never before won the tournament.

Another interested spectator will be Australian men's player Mitchell Starc, who has flown home early from Australia's tour of South Africa to watch his wife, Alyssa Healy, play in the final for Australia. 

"It is a once-in-a-lifetime chance for Mitch to watch Alyssa in a home World Cup final and so we were happy to allow him to return home to support his wife and be part of a fantastic occasion," siad Australia's men's head coach Justin Langer.

American singer Katy Perry is set to sing before and after the match on what promises to be a marquee day for women's sport and has promised to perform fan favourites.
