Potchefstroom [South Africa], January 29 (ANI): India captain Shafali Verma won the toss and opted to bowl against England in U19 Women's T20 World Cup final clash here at Senwes Park in Potchefstroom on Sunday.

The team led by Shafali Verma only dropped one game throughout the tournament, and they finished as the table topper in Group 1. However, England didn't lose a game throughout the group stage. India's brilliant performance against New Zealand in the first semi-final on Friday saw them seal one of the final berths.

And England triumphed in a thriller against Australia in the second semi to progress to Sunday's showpiece event.
