(SOUNDBITE) (English) AUSTRALIAN PLAYER ALYSSA HEALY SAYING: "I don't think anything is ever going to top that.

I hope that there's girls in this side that are going to experience that for a long period of time but for me I never though that we'd get the opportunity to do something as cool as what we did today and play in front of almost 90,000 people at the MCG in a home world cup final.

It's a dream come true and for me I enjoyed every single minute of it and I don't think you saw me without a smile on my face the whole time because we just went out there and enjoyed the moment and what we were able to create.

Cricket has done some really amazing things in this country for female athletes and tonight was really just a celebration of that."

(SOUNDBITE) (English) INDIA CAPTAIN HARMANPREET KAUR SAYING: "Well, when you give chances to a batter who is in great form then it's really difficult for bowlers to come back and we were trying our best.

But we should give credit to them also because they played great cricket today" MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA (MARCH 8, 2020) (AAP VIA REUTERS PICTURES - NO RESALES, NO ARCHIVE, NO USE AUSTRALIA, NO USE NEW ZEALAND) (MUTE) 16.

STILL - LANNING HOLDING THE TROPHY AND CELEBRATING WITH HER TEAM STORY: Opening batswomen Alyssa Healy and Beth Mooney scored glittering half-centuries as a ruthless Australia crushed India by 85 runs to win a record-extending fifth Women's Twenty20 World Cup in front of a heaving Melbourne Cricket Ground on Sunday (March 8).

Player of the match Healy blasted a 39-ball 75 and pillaged five sixes from India's hapless bowlers, while Mooney, named player of the tournament, finished with an unbeaten 78 from 54 balls, driving the defending champions to an imposing total of 184 for four.

Having dropped both the Australian openers when they were on single figures in a dismal fielding display, a shellshocked India later crumbled under the floodlights to be out for 99 after 19.1 overs.

Blighted by injuries, Australia had to grind through a slew of do-or-die matches to reach the decider after losing their tournament opener to India.

Yet shorn of talismanic all-rounder Ellyse Perry and front-line fast bowler Tayla Vlaeminck, Meg Lanning's side produced their best performance of the tournament in the match that counted.

For India, who lost the one-day World Cup final to England at Lord's three years ago, their wait for a maiden global trophy in women's cricket will go on.

Scientists Are Preparing To Implant The World’s First Human Bionic Eye That Will Allow The Blind To See

Scientists are preparing to implant the world's first human bionic eye that will aloow the blind to see. Researchers at Monach University in Melbourne, Australia, have built a bionic device that they say can restore vision through a brain implant. Called Gennaris Bionic Vision System, it includes a custom headgear fitted with a camera and wireless transmitter, a vision processor unit and software and a set of 9X9 millimetre tiles that are implanted into the brain. Studies of the device, used in sheep during a trial in July, were found to be successful and did not produce any adverse health effects. Researshers are also hoping to adapt the system to help those with untreatable neurological conditions, such as limb paralysis, to regain movement. A date for the human trials has yet to be set.
