Mumbai, Feb. 12 -- India's women in blue are ten days away from their T20 World Cup opener against tournament favourites Australia, but before that, another dress-rehearsal awaits them in the tri-series final in Melbourne on Wednesday.

The Harmanpreet Kaur-led India are using the ongoing tri-series being played Down Under as an opportunity to acclimatise with the wickets and ground conditions and also to polish their T20I skills.

"When the opposition is good, you can definitely improve as a team and put yourself in different situations to learn how to handle pressure. So, in that sense we are using tri-series to brush up certain areas and trying to be more calculative in all the departments," Kaur told HT in an interview.
