Katy Perry is confirmed to be heading to Australia next year where she'll exclusively perform at the Women's T20 World Cup cricket final. 

The US pop star will take to the stage at the MCG on Sunday 8 March - International Women's Day - for both pre-game and post-game celebrations in what is expected to be the biggest women’s cricket match of all time.

“I'm all about celebrating equality and the achievements of women, which naturally happens on a global scale on International Women's Day. It’s no coincidence that I said yes to performing live at the women's final on this day," Perry said.
